My Top iPad VPN Accessories for Business

If you’ve walked through an electronics store or airport (but I repeat myself), you’ll likely have noticed the colonization of these places by iDevice accessories. Cover, leads, converters and a bewildering array of head phones. There are many accessories to complement your iPad VPN. I like music as much as the next guy but draw the line at (another) set of headphones that cost as much as the flight I’m about to take. That said, here are the accessories that are essential to me.Telefunken XO iPad Pen – it’s not cheap but after you’ve gotten bored with the crayon-esque efforts of other vendors, treat yourself to the one iPad VPN pen that actually works. Kudos to Telefunken on the regular app updates that add functionality and enhance performance.AppleTV – okay so it’s not exactly an *iPad* accessory but it is beautifully implemented way to get iPad content onto a HDMI TV or projector. For some reason, the ubiquitous iPhone docks for stereos never seem to fit iPads and I’ve never seen a 30 pin extender to allow cheating. Solution, AppleTV and a HDMI cable – quality tunes, movies or just funny cat videos in all their 50″ plasma glory.Kanex ATV Pro – the eagle eyed amongst you read the previous item and scoffed – Most office or meeting room projectors don’t have HDMI! AppleTV is just a home theater toy! Well… not quite. The smart folks at Kanex have produced the ATV Pro – an Apple approved HDMI to VGA with 3.5mm audio output. And it’s powered via the HDMI so no nasty cables. Together, these two make it possible to waltz into any meeting and look pretty swish as you wirelessly present from your iPad even if the projector is older than you are.Many businesspeople use their iPad VPN for to listen to music whilst on the go. Headphones – the ones that came with your iPad are okay but you can greatly improve the long term (over an hour or so) experience of listening to music on your iPad VPN. This is a bewildering area so rather than recommend a single model; I’ll make some general recommendations. First off, noise cancelling (active) head phones and full size headphones require more power than most others – this can be a concern if you plan to fall asleep listening on a flight, awaking to find your battery dented.Some audiophiles using an iPad VPN swear by the rather scarily named ‘in ear canal’ headphone type. Personally, I can’t stand them and find the only thing worse than using them to be price – you can spend $200 on a set. Better (to me at least) is the infinitely cuter sounding ‘canal-buds’. These are cheaper, a big lift over the Apple standard and, best of all, don’t sound like a segment on ‘America’s Funniest Insertion Tragedies’. (A show I would totally watch if anyone’s in the industry).A quality case – Somewhat further down the cool list, your iPad case protects not just your $500+ investment but also the data you have in it. Sure, it might be backed up but that’s no help if you’ve arrived at your meeting with a banana shaped iPad and no presentation. While cool, the Apple magnetic screen-cover-only cases aren’t up to the job of protecting an iPad that you might drop on tiles (check), sit on (check) or drive over (Che… long story, wasn’t me honest). I’ve yet to find a case for the 2nd and 3rd gen iPads that is as good as the Apple ‘moleskin’ for the iPad 1.A MiFi – a MiFi is a cellphone without the phone or screen. Simply put, it’s a 3G modem with an onboard battery and enough operating system to attach to cellular and rebroadcast it via WiFi. So, even if your iPad is Wi-Fi only, you can have net access anywhere there is signal. This does suppose that you have an airtime contract for your MiFi but it’s when travelling that this really makes sense. When you arrive, simply buy a pre-pay or pay as you go contract from a local carrier and pop it into the MiFi. Now you have Internet access across your iPad, cellphone or even laptop. And you can share it with travelling colleagues or just bask in the glory of being the only one without massive data roaming bill when you get back!If you have an old Android smartphone, these can be used as MIFIs via their tethering function. Whether you use an older smartphone or a MiFi, note that these units don’t support more than five connected devices so don’t give the password to too many people lest you find yourself locked out!There are many accessories that will complement and help you get the most of your iPad VPN. Ensure you always keep your iPad VPN safe and secure to get the most out of your device.
