Apple iPad mini 4
We were among those who originally thought we’d never need an iPad. And while “need” is probably a strong word… we definitely wouldn’t want to be without it, now that we own one. The mini is small enough to be easily portable… but big enough to be easily usable, too. While the cellular version is more expensive than WiFi-only, it comes in handy as a secondary cellular hotspot… augmenting our primary data plan on the phone/MiFi. And with a T-Mobile Binge-On plan, it’s a great device for doing a quick catch-up on TV shows while dry-camping, since the battery lasts and lasts.
