CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Magellan’s Travel Supplies iPad Bluetooth Keyboard Case Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED
Posted on June 23rd, 2011 by roxxyroller in Giveaways Canada.
Magellan’s Travel Supplies is an extremely well known and reputable company around the world! They are definately a trusted source of all sorts of travel supplies.
“Magellan’s was founded by two travel professionals to provide a single source of unique and useful travel products, supported by well trained travel gear specialists, and backed by a complete 100% guarantee of satisfaction.
While working for Pan Am Airways, John and Gloria McManus traveled extensively around the world and were frustrated by the inadequate supply of travel products available to consumers. In 1989 they created Magellan’s catalog, starting with a 32 page black and white catalog of hard-to-find travel products. John’s no-nonsense, detailed descriptions of each item made it clear how each addressed a travel problem, from overseas electrical adaptors to third world health and hygiene.
The catalog had inauspicious beginnings from their kitchen table, but the concept took hold, travelers took notice, and sales grew rapidly, prompting a move to larger space, first in a Quonset hut down by the beach, and then to the former Arlington hotel garage that houses the business today, just off State Street in downtown Santa Barbara.
What started with two consummate travelers now employs nearly 100. We still provide hands-on training for our staff on every item in our catalog, stores, and website. From comfort pillows and travel blankets to water purification and insect protection to selecting the best moisture-wicking, wrinkle-resistant travel clothing, we’re prepared to meet your needs.
Our mission is to make your travel more comfortable, safe, and rewarding. And if for any reason you are not completely happy with your purchase, we’ll make it right or cheerfully refund your full purchase price.”

Being an avid traveller when time allows, I have definately turned to Magellan’s Travel Supplies for all of our travel needs and more! They take the stress out of travelling, and that is something that we all require! You can also shop by brand, and the Magellan’s website also has Travel Advice & Country Guides for your convenience so be sure to check them out as well!
Magellan’s Travel Supplies sent me this really AWESOME iPad Bluetooth Keyboard Case and I was overwhelmed with excitement!! It essentially turns your iPad into a laptop by combining a keyboard and a case into one unit. The case unfolds to reveal the keyboard and the iPad play-through holster/stand.
The iPad slides into the holster and is held inside with a small flap that slides behind the tablet to hold it in place. No zippers, snaps or elastic straps are used.
It’s also important to note that the home button, power button, volume buttons, earphone jack and docking / charging connector are all accessible while the iPad is in this case.
I will be travelling with my iPad all over now with ease!!
In use, the iPad rests on a built in stand in a horizontal orientation which makes the whole package look and work almost like a netbook. The keyboard itself has a silicone cover that will resist the occasional caffeinated spillage of your choice and provides noticeable tactile feedback. In other words, you’ll feel like you are typing again instead of tapping. The case is made of soft synthetic leather and closes with a magnetic clasp. It feels good when you’re carrying it around, but it isn’t so hefty that you notice it. In fact, loaded up with an iPad the whole weighs just 2.75lbs, which is less than the new 13″ MacBook Air.
The keyboard comes with all the function keys you’d expect with an iPad: Home, Volume, Search, and iPod Controls. Tap the Home button once and you’re looking at your apps. Tap the Home button twice and you bring up a mini iPod control. Without leaving the current app, you can fire up songs on the active playlist with a touch of the Play button. You can also Pause or skip forward/backward through the active playlist. The Search button puts everything on your iPad at your fingertips.
I give Magellan’s Travel Supplies a huge thumbs up for all of their EXCELLENT products and for exceeding my expectations! Their customer service skills as well as delivery time were both beyond outstanding!!
