A full charge in less than four hours makes this product a necessity.

Gaming is constantly evolving, and the evolution of the two-screen experience is here to stay. So it might be a good idea to snag a few iPad Air accessories as well.
The Kinect would be perfect for old school televisions, which were basically coffee tables on top, but evolving technology has made TVs thinner and thinner.
