Flying - - Sky Next -

How cool is this? X-naut has in­tro­duced an ipad cool­ing case pow­ered by eight AA bat­ter­ies that drive fans di­rected at the de­vice’s main hot spots.

X-naut de­signed two easy-ac­cess doors for the bat­tery com­part­ments that let you quickly swap in fresh AAS when needed. Two ver­sions are of­fered, one for the ipad Air and one for the ipad mini. The com­pany lists all com­pat­i­ble ipad mod­els on its web­site, The ipad mini ver­sion sells for $179.99 and the Air ver­sion for $209.99 at
