Which one should I get?

We think the best accessory to get for your iPad Air is the Apple Pencil. This most definitely brings new life to your iPad Air due to its ability to draw, sketch and write. If drawing beautiful works of art isn't your jam, then you can just happily write notes. This pen will undoubtedly impress you with its pinpoint accuracy.

This may not be a sexy runner up pick, but we must give a nod to Bonai's Portable 30000mAh Battery Pack. We assume you're going to be productive on your iPad Air, especially with watching movies and TV shows. So, having the extra juice laying around in case you need an emergency charge, is clutch. This brick does that and more with four ports capable of charging four devices at once.

Lastly, you should grab the ZUGU Protective iPad Case to go with your Apple Pencil and portable battery pack. This case offers optimal protection as it covers your entire iPad Air. In addition to that supreme safety, the ZUGU case can hold your Apple Pencil.

We hope that this accessory list will help you find the best of the best iPad partners around for you and your new iPad Air!
