Picking Up the Tab(let)

Get more out of your device with these six tech companions

1. Get On the Grid
Cocoon Innovation’s versatile GRID-IT! Organizers offer a tech-storage solution that is simple yet effective—using a weave of rubber straps to keep your gadgets organized and secure. Built to fit any-size bag, the grids go from small to extra large. $10–$35 | cocooninnovations.com

2. Mightier than the Digital Sword
Upgrade from your finger to Adonit’s Jot Mini—a precision stylus made with mobility in mind. The sub-four-inch wonder has a built-in carrying clip and uses a clear disc on its tip for obstruction-free writing. $25 | adonit.net

3. Get a Grip
Put your tablet where everyone can see it with the Hand-e-holder. This accessory from Handeholder Products allows users to secure their tablet to their hands for worry-free holding, making reading or presentations easier and more comfortable. $45 | handeholder.com

4. Speaker Up
The Logitech Ultimate Ears Mini Boom easily drowns out any puny built-in speaker, without taking up much space of its own. Weighing in at about two pounds, the Bluetooth-enabled device has a 20-hour battery life and is available in five colours. $119 | ultimateears.com/en-ca

5. A Cure for the common Case
Besides offering coverings that resemble everything from composition notebooks to a bonded-leather book—protecting from scuffs and hopefully deterring thieves—Portenzo can custom-create a cover in a variety of sizes, colours, and materials. $50–$170 | shop.portenzo.com

6. Up this Sleeve
For those who don’t want to bulk up their tablet with a case but still want some protection, opt for Gecko Cover’s Felt Sleeves. Made of felt and leather, the case keeps your gear free of scratches inside these svelte pouches. $26–$29 | geckocovers.com
