Ipad Case- FAIL

Okay, I know, to have to buy an iPad case clearly means I have an iPad, which was made in China, and there are clear reports of bad labor conditions at the iPhone factories. So it’s ironic to insist on a made in the USA case for it, but here I am. Electronics are a whole difficult subject of goods made over seas, a tough category.

After looking at three companies online that make ipad mini cases in the USA, I chose to go with “Treegloo.”  DO NOT ORDER FROM TREEGLOO! They took my money and never sent me the case. I had to finally file a claim with the BBB to get my money refunded.

So, I ordered a case from Portenzo.case

They actually mailed it to me which is an improvement on the last attempt, but I find that my iPad mini falls out of the case. I eventually stopped using it and it’s sitting on my bookshelf. It’s supposed to stink on these big stickers on the inside (I got the “hard shell” version”) but it falls right off.

So now I carry my iPad in a cloth bag that Andy’s mom made from fabric. It works. I guess homemade is sometimes just as good.

Anyone have experience with other made in the USA cases for electronic devices?
