Banish those battery worries with Morphie's portable battery charger. The high-powered device charges at speeds of up to two amps (four times the speed of most other portable chargers).

Keep your iPad free of screen-defiling fingerprints and speed up your on-screen writing with the Griffin Stylus, which has a nifty tip which adapts to your writing style. Also great to use when drawing in art apps.

9. Trendy Digital Waterproof Case
Best Budget Buy: This useful little accessory allows your iPad to go where no iPad has gone before: into the bath. The plastic case creates a watertight seal while still allowing you to use the touch screen.
Price: £15.49 (€17.85), amazon.co.uk
10. Fling iPad Joystick
This is a must-have for all gamers. The Fling analogue joystick attaches to your iPad by way of a pressure sucker, thereby turning it into a retro-style games console.
