When I bumped into ZeroChroma at CES, I didn’t think much about it. I see a lot of tablet cases with flash and sizzle and theirs were pretty unassuming. Nonetheless, I stopped to chat, and I’m very glad I did. ZeroChroma brings performance to the forefront with cases that adapt and swivel, allowing your iPad, Kindle Fire, or iPhone to be at just the right angle and orientation for whatever you’re doing at the time.
I tested out the iPad 2 Vario-SC Theater-Stand. The kick stand in the back snaps firmly into 11 different angles and is mounted on a 360-degree rotating disk. This held my iPad perfectly for watching a movie, and then just as perfectly for playing a game where I’m tapping on the screen. I could swivel it around for reading a book or magazine in portrait mode in no time at all. The kick-stand is sturdy enough to hold your iPad for demonstrating in public, as well. Nifty, right?
The iPad 2 Theater Stand is designed to work with your Apple Smart-Cover. I didn’t end up buying one because I wanted full coverage for my iPad, but this is a really nice option for those who started out with the Smart-Cover. It snaps onto the back and feels secure once attached. I wasn’t at all worried about my iPad falling out. The back is mostly rubberized and will provide some protection for the corners of your iPad as well. It’s also a lot easier to hold onto than just the slick iPad tablet on its own.
The Vario-SC comes in black and white and retails for $49.99. I give this case a big thumb’s up, especially in cooperation with a Smart-Cover.
Disclosure: We received a Vario-SC case for review purposes. There was no promise of a positive review and the opinions contained in this post are my own.
