Here’s a great idea, executed with typical Far East crapgadget mediocrity by Brando: what if your iPad 2’s Smart Cover was actually a battery pack?

Not a shabby idea in the abstract, but Brando hopelessly mucks it up with their Anytone Smart Cover. While it can extend the iPad 2’s 10-hour battery by another four or five hours, the proper way to do this is to make a Smart Cover with the battery packs inside the Cover, not slapped as a sticker to the outside.

What do you expect for the price, though? It’s just thirty eight bucks.
