Accessories for Apple equipment came to us for a test - covers for iPad, iPhone, cables, as well as convenient organizers for wires. Apple technology is not just favorite among manufacturers of accessories. It is simply easier for companies to work with apple gadgets, because you always know what will come out next year and adapt one accessory to the entire line is not so difficult. Of the minuses: a lot of competition; if the product is uncomfortable or ugly, then do not expect the buyer to return to you and give a second chance, because there are plenty of alternatives on the market. Deppa is one of the oldest manufacturers of accessories for Apple. Today we will consider their products in comparison with the official products of the company from Cupertino.
Wallet Onzo Cases for iPad
The case is made of pleasant to the touch and high-quality materials that allow not only to protect the tablet from damage, but also convenient to use it in all possible conditions. The outer part of the cover is made of eco-leather, and the inside is of microfiber. The case itself is made of high quality plastic with a soft touch coating. Access to ports and buttons is always open and implemented using cutouts. A special magnet is built into the edge of the lid, as in official accessories, with which the tablet “falls asleep” and “wakes up”. Deppa implements Wallet Onzo in four rich colors: blue, cyan, red and black.
Comparing the case with the official one, you can find both pros and cons. An obvious plus is the protection of the device, which the Epplovskaya cloak simply does not have. Another advantage is the ability to conveniently put the tablet on your lap. The official cover is very poorly placed on uneven surfaces and is designed more for a table, while Deppa can stand anywhere, the touch area is quite large. But let's not forget about the cons - this is a tangible weight (almost 200 grams) and a weak magnet, if you open the cover like a book, the strength of the magnets is not enough to hold onto the back cover tightly. As a result, I was very pleased with the case and left it for myself instead of the official one.
Case Gel + and Case Art cases for iPhone 7
Having tried both cases, I settled on Case Gel +. Despite the fact that the case I chose was closed with button protection, it turned out to be more convenient than the open ones from Case Art. In addition, soft high-quality silicone and a rough inner surface to prevent fogging turned out to be more practical than the rather stiff Case Art polycarbonate. And of course, do not forget that I have Jet Black, which looks great only in a transparent case. And Gel + copes with a bang.
I won’t compare them with official cases, since I always considered them very strange (especially full of holes that appeared with 5c), so I never bought them, much less used them, but I’m probably taking some time to wear Deppa. On the back cover of my phone every now and then new scuffs and scratches appear. The thickness of Gel + is only 0.7 mm, so it does not deliver any discomfort from the word at all. Thickness Art is a millimeter.
Gel and Gel + Cases for iPhone X
Unfortunately, when the Deppa cases fell into our hands, the new iPhone X already left us, but I tested the Gel series on the “seven”. In the case of the "top ten" Gel + has a thickness of 0.9 mm, and Gel is even less - 0.8. Cases have all the advantages of younger models for the iPhone 7.
NRG Case 3800 Battery Case for iPhone 7
Many people don’t like Apple standard battery cases. Humpbacked freaks, if they find fans, they are only inveterate perverts like me, but the rest do not really like them. Case 3800 aims to remedy the aesthetic side of the extra battery. But the accessory from Deppa “makes” the official one not only in terms of appearance, but literally in all respects. Price? Four times less. Capacity? 2 times more. At the same time, the case does not interfere with charging the device or synchronizing the smartphone with the computer - everything goes seamlessly, like charging the case itself.
But this is not all - a special metal plate is integrated on the back cover, which, coupled with a magnetic holder, will be very convenient for use in a car. The only negative that I found is that the case does not report its charge in iOS, as the official ones do. To check the charge level, you need to press the button with the indicator on the rear panel. Depending on its color, you can understand the level of remaining charge in the device.
Crab Cable Holders
For a long time I used magnetic holders with Ali Express, but I liked Deppa more. The magnetic has a number of disadvantages that Deppa lacks - there are no fasteners for wires (the Chinese need to wear a special magnet on the cable), which also constantly breaks. Plus, you don’t have to change to new cables - with Deppa you just attach the holder and use it with any wires, changing them at least every day. All wires stick well and do not fall out, the sticky pad itself also attaches well and does not fall off, despite the uneven surface of the table. Of course, this did not save me from the creative mess on the table, but at least it reduced the time to search for the necessary wire from the category of frequently used ones. Includes 4 holders of two colors - black and white.
ALUM SHORT USB and USB cables - micro USB
The first cable is short - only 15 centimeters. A nylon braid will not allow the cable to wear out as quickly as the official one. The size is convenient for traveling if you do not want to take a bunch of wires that are constantly confused or for a paverbank (when using both of them in one hand).
The second, on the contrary, is super-long - as much as three meters. Situations are different, sometimes such a length is also needed. Data is transmitted over such a cable without problems, however, like a charge. The maximum current is 2 amperes, and the USB version is 2.0. In the case of the Lightning cable, the difference is only 2.4 A.
We looked at Deppa accessories. What do you think about this kind of article? Should I continue? You may be interested in other positions from the Deppa website. We are waiting for your suggestions for testing in the comments. Do not forget about the New Year promotion for goods in the official store - go and see for yourself - real discounts, I studied the products before the start of sales.
