Following the most successful tablet launch in history with the advent of the iPad 3, reports now indicate that its temperature can exceed 115 degrees Fahrenheit after extensive use when plugged in. Product designer Amanda Crawford Designs has created a protective tablet holder for the iPad 3 or any tablet overheating at such extreme temperatures that poses the threat of skin burn.

The iBuddy offers the ultimate in comfort and protection, not only creating a nearly weightless experience with its internal weight-shifting material but also absorbing and redirecting the heat emitted from the iPad 3.

According to Myrna Alpern, the driving force behind Amanda Crawford Designs, "What most people don’t realize is that overheating isn’t a problem isolated to Apple’s iPad 3 but is a rather common issue with most tablets available on the market today."

Recently, a test was conducted in which 5 tablets from various brands - Asus Transformer Prime, Blackberry Playbook, Kindle Fire, Acer Iconia and Apple iPad - were used unplugged for 30 minutes at high capacity. The research concluded that out of the 5 tablet devices, Apple’s iPad 3 clocked the 4th highest temperature at 93.5 degrees Fahrenheit with the ASUS Transformer Prime clocking the highest temperature at 98.5 degrees Fahrenheit.

While there are a host of tablet accessories on the market that are designed for comfort and aesthetics, not many are geared to absorb excessive heat. For men, it has been medically proven by the State University of New York at Stony Brook that extreme heat from devices held in a man’s lap lowers sperm count and increases infertility risks. Comfort, aesthetics and protection is a hard to find combination in tablet accessories. An iPad holder currently available in the marketplace that offers a comprehensive solution with all three elements is Amanda Crawford Designs’ iBuddy. The iBuddy offers the ultimate in comfort and protection, not only creating a nearly weightless experience with their internal weight-shifting material but also absorbing and redirecting the heat emitted from the iPad 3 and other tablets.

Amanda Crawford Designs (http://www.amandacrawforddesigns.com) is the answer when it comes to safe use and enjoyment of an iPad 3 or other tablet. Their iBuddy iPad holders elevate and secure the tablet so one can enjoy extended use without straining his or her wrists, elbows or neck. In addition to providing health and safety benefits, Amanda Crawford Designs offers their iBuddy in a beautiful array of elegant fabrics. For an iPad 3, Kindle, Nook or other tablet, all this and more makes a tablet holder from Amanda Crawford Designs a “must-have” accessory.
