Last year we covered the elegant and beautiful Joule from Element Case. A beautiful iPad stand, and so simple it its design. This year Element Case is back with a revamped Joule, a redesigned stand for the iPad 2.
It’s called Joule Chroma, and this year it comes in 6 apple flavored colors. It also sports a vent for your iPad 2’s audio output, which they claim ‘amplifies’ the sound. I’m more inclined to think of this as a small breathing hole for your iPad 2’s speakers – I wouldn’t say it amplifies, but it suffocates it a little less than some other stands… The vent for audio also breaks the pure minimalist lines of the original Joule.
In spite of our criticisms, it’s still a pretty snazzy number, but in our opinion the $150 price tag is a bit steep for this type of accessory, and although the new colors will appeal to some, we feel it looks more sporty now, and a little less elegant.
