From smart keyboards to easy recharging: improve the latest must-have tablets with these clever add-ons
Those working in creative industries will find the Apple Pencil (HK$788) a useful digital tool for sketching, painting, blueprinting and touching up photographs. It works with both the 9.7-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro. Available at Apple Store Causeway Bay, 500 Hennessy Road, tel: 3979 3100.
This backlit keyboard case for the iPad Pro 12.9-inch model (HK$1,299) is powered by the tablet itself, so there’s no need to recharge it. It connects automatically and has built-in iOS short cuts. Available at fortress.com.hk.
Microsoft Surface Pen
Designed for the Microsoft Surface Book i7, this clever stylus (HK$98) converts handwriting to text, but can also be used to correct and highlight text in documents. Mistakes can be undone quickly by using a digital eraser on its end. Available at broadway.com.hk.
LG Rolly KBB-700
This wireless keyboard (HK$488.49) can be used with any device with Bluetooth, and it also has a built-in stand for propping up a tablet. It then rolls up into a pocket-sized stick for easy portability. Sold by hk.mobilefun.com.
Microsoft Surface Arc Touch Mouse
This small mouse (HK$568) for the Microsoft Surface Book i7 (and all Microsoft Surface tablets) is wireless, uses haptic feedback to respond to touch, and works on rough table tops. Find it at fortress.com.hk.
Xiaomi Mi Power Bank NDY-02-AN
A compelling reason for travelling with a tablet for business instead of a laptop is easy recharging. This 10,000mAh power bank (HK$170) will recharge most tablets twice over via USB. Available at expansys.com.hk.
Apple Smart Keyboard
While most portable keyboards need to be recharged and connected wirelessly, this full-size keyboard (HK$1,348) with a flip-over cover physically connects to an iPad Pro 12.9-inch, so never runs out of power while being used. Find it at Apple Store Causeway Bay, 500 Hennessy Road, tel: 3979 3100.
