At Wombat Ware we aim to design & create solutions for active iPad users who need added support to keep using their iPads.
The first challenge we are addressing is the overheating and shutting down of iPads. The Wombat Ware Cooling Case was designed to solve that challenge while considering some of the different use cases in the various industries (e.g. Electronic Flight Bags, Flying Drones, Coaching, Emergency services etc).
We recognise that our solution may not meet everyone's needs, so we are open to feedback, suggestions and even customising a solution for our users if required.
The Story (how it started)
The Cooling Case started out as a once-off custom prototype idea/solution for a sports scientist who had troubles with an overheating iPad. For those who are interested in the origin story, you will find it here: "Designing An iPad Cooling Case".
Many years on, it became evident that this problem of the iPad overheating and shutting down hasn't gone away. It continues to affect a lot more people including pilots, drone pilots, and people who use the iPad for work.
Finally in 2020/2021, after much redesign and testing to make sure that it would suit most potential users, the Wombat Ware Cooling Case was made. There is a bit of forward thinking (or future proofing) put into the design so that it would be adaptable to future iPad models or future add-on requirements (besides cooling). More will be disclosed about that soon.
How it's going
We have only just started with this first design and solution, first catering to the iPad mini 5. The range will keep expanding as we add designs for the other iPad models as well as accessories. It will also keep evolving and improving as we receive feedback from users. It is our commitment to deliver innovative solutions that work. If you need something custom that you can't find elsewhere and would like to collaborate, feel free to reach out on the Contact Us page.
