iMainGo XP Brings Unique Way to Listen to and Protect Your iPad
The iPad® and iPad®2 are amazing devices that allow you to enjoy the web, play games, watch movies, and listen to music. And while the display is incredible, the speakers are a little lacking and could use a little boost. That is where the iMainGo XP Ultra-portable speaker system comes to the rescue. It is a durable protective case for your iPad, with a built in amplifier and 4 high output speakers built right into the case.
Initially I was a little put off by additional weight of the iMainGo XP. One of my favorite aspects of the iPad is its light weight. The iMainGo XP easily doubled the weight of my iPad2. Because of this, I avoided testing any gaming with the iMainGo XP. I felt that it made the iPad too heavy for any extended periods of gaming. So instead I focused on its ability to deliver superior sound for movies and music; although I suppose you could easily use this accessory to turn your average gaming session into strength training exercise.
It definitely can put out some serious sound; I found that it easily fills my living room with sound at about 25% speaker volume. Also, the sound it delivers is much richer than that of the built in speakers on the iPad. It definitely does a great job of enhancing the base without drowning out the higher frequency sounds. It can also make the iPad very loud, which can be useful for listening at a distance or overpowering your neighbors’ music.
Let's Talk About Specs
The product spec sheet boasts a full 8 hours of play on full volume. In the past couple of weeks, I have watched a couple of movies and listened to a several hours of music with it, and I have not needed to recharge the battery. The battery on my iPad2 also lasts about 8 hours during constant use. So recharge schedules are fairly easy to sync.Continued on the next page
