I thought I'd start a thread with the intention of getting information useful to members of the international military community regarding the use of their ipads when travelling & deployed. This is mainly because we tend to put our equipment, unintentionally, though some pretty rough treatment. Personally speaking, I've been in the British Army for 12 years with multiple tours of crap places - I think I've been through about 8 laptops in that time!
So I'm hoping to encourage some hellos, any remarks about accessories (if a case actually coped with being thrown out of a CH47 by an overzealous crew member for example!), apps that have proven really useful - professionally or for entertainment, any problems you've had using the iPad abroad (power adaptors immediately spring to mind as a potential problem), any issues with personal kit insurance, etc.
I'll wait and see how much activity this thread gets!
