Hottest Smartphone and Tablet Technology (Autumn 2016)

Autumn is here and so is our smartphone and tablet tech guide for the season. Looking for the best tech on the go? If so, you will find all you need here!

Peli Guardian Smartphone Case (£24.99)

The Guardian is one of Peli’s (and the world’s) thinnest protection cases on the market. Careful design has gone into a product which works across a range of devices, such as iPhone® 6, 6S, iPhone® 6 Plus, 6S Plus, Samsung Galaxy S® 6 and Samsung Galaxy Note®5 and carries a Lifetime Guarantee

One of the most exciting things about Peli Products is that they are built to a military spec and hence they have been given the Guardian name.  Guardian by name and Guardian by nature, this case seems to have one of the best protective capabilities out there.


With its advanced shock absorption core, the Peli Guardian phone case is one of the thinnest protection cases on the market – which makes it easy to handle and use.   It is designed for busy professionals for work, home and play.  It meets the military certification “MIL-STD 810G” which means high-end military-grade protection from drops and falls. We tried it from a few feet and there were no problems at all.

The case sits relatively neatly in the hand and seems to have been designed to discreetly fit into pockets and bags, therefore making it perfect for the modern smartphone user. Each external button of our iPhone connected well with the case and there was no loss in usability during use. Well worth the sub £25 price tag!

Peli Guardian phone cases come with a Lifetime Guarantee. They’re available in Black/Blue, Black/Grey and White/Blue, priced at £24.99 from leading outlets including Amazon. More information:

Peli Voyager Tablet Case (£49.99)

Peli do produce some fabulous smartphone cases, but they also are market leaders in high-performance protective tablet case. One such case is the Voyager, one of our favourite tablet cases of the season.


One of our favourite tablet cases, this offering from Peli is tough, sleek and still maintains a level of sophistication. Just like the Guardian range, the Voyager range comes with rugged, military level protection and suits most apple devices, even the new Apple iPad Pro™ 9.7.

For under £50, you get a hell of a lot protection. The layers of the case and the design mean you can expect your case to be protected from a couple of metres or so. With this level of protection, we were particularly pleased with how light the device is and how snugly it fitted to the product. You know this case must be good, when you realise it comes with Peli’s lifetime guarantee.


The Voyager for the iPad Pro™ 9.7 joins Peli’s Voyager range for the iPad Mini™ 4, the iPad Mini 1/2/3 and iPad Air® 2. So, if you are looking for a case to match your device, we are confident there is something on the market for you.

The Peli Voyager case for the iPad mini™ 4 is available in Black/Grey and retails at £44.99; the Mini™ 1/2/3 is available in Black/Grey or Pink/Grey and retails at £39.99; and the  iPad Air® 2 has a range of colours which includes Black/Grey, Pink/Grey, and White/Grey, retailing at £49.99.

The TP Liink 5200 mAh Power Bank provides a simple and effective solution to your travel power woes. This fast charging device produces enough power to charge most current devices from 0 to full charge.

A super device, we take it everywhere we go and it is perfect for those with a hand bag/ man bag too. Simply plug in and you are away.
