Accsoon Power Cage for iPad
Accsoon, which is best known for making affordable wireless video systems, has announced a new Power Cage for the 10.5 ″ and 11 ″ iPads.
The Power Cage was designed to turn your iPad into an affordable on-shelf viewing platform.
The Power Cage and iPad can be combined with Acsoon’s CineEye 2 range of 2.4 and 5 GHz wireless video transmitters to create an affordable, low latency iOS surveillance solution.

In the app, you can also use image assist tools such as waveforms, zebras, touch magnification, focus, audio level measurement, LUTs, and image reporting. ‘anamorphic appearance. The latest updates to the Accsoon Go app have also added the ability to live stream your CineEye 2 connected camera feed directly to YouTube.
Which iPads does it work with?
The new Accsoon Power Cage fits the following iPad models:
- 11-inch iPad Pro (1st and 2nd generation)
- 10.5-inch iPad Pro versions
- iPad Air (3rd and 4th generation)
- iPad (7th and 8th generation)
Installing the iPad in the cage is relatively straightforward. The Power Cage uses an adjustable sliding frame design and that is how it is able to work with iPad models of various sizes.
Now the problem with the cages is that the iPads change almost every year and I have two older iPads and neither of them fit in that cage.
The Power Cage weighs 350g / 12.34oz and is only 27mm thick. The cage is made of aero grade aluminum alloy. The entire cage can be disassembled into small pieces if needed.
Power your iPad
With the Power Cage, you don’t have to rely on the iPad’s internal battery or USB batteries. Instead, you can use Sony NP-F 550/750 or 950 type batteries for extended run times. You can then connect the included USB-C or Lightning charging cable from the iPad to the Cage and you’re good to go. According to Accsoon, safe charging is guaranteed with a built-in charge protection function.
Each side, as well as the back of the cage, has 1/4 to 20 inch mounting holes so that you can attach other accessories to the iPad or mount the iPad on a light stand or stand. camera, etc.
