miniipad_smooth_pink_web_002Today we review the iPad Mini Ballistic LS Series Case. Best known for their ultra protective cases for today’s mobile devices, this case is designed to keep the best features of the iPad Mini, it’s slim profile and small footprint, intact while offering the maximum protection possible in a slim format.

The iPad Mini Ballistic LS Series Case is made from durable TPU, which is pliable and sturdy. It has the “Lay-on-table” feature which keeps either front or rear surface elevated off the table due to its thicker corners. It also comes with 4 sets of 4 colored and interchangeable bumpers, which offer great customization.

The case goes on easily, but not so much that it feels like it will fall off or feel like the case will loosen over time like some other silicone cases. The back of the case has ridges near the bottom half of the case to help improve gripping. There are cutouts on the side for the mute switch, on top for the headphone jack, and on the bottom for the lightning adapter and built in iPad Mini speakers. On the back there are cutouts for the rear mic and camera.


The case offers great protection without adding much bulk to the sleek iPad Mini. It offers 3 feet of drop protection. This case does not come with a screen protector, so you are free to use one at your discretion. This type of case does not take advantage of the using the magnetic screen off/on feature nor does it come with a way of standing the case up. However, this is not what this case is designed to do. That being said, it is very easy to prop this case up in a standing, but the corners of the case are “sticky” enough that they will not slip when propped up against something.

As tested, our Hot Pink case came with:

  • Hot Pink case
  • 4 black bumpers
  • 4 purple bumpers
  • 4 hot pink green bumpers
  • 4 white bumpers

The iPad Mini Ballistic LS Series Case comes recommended to those in the market for a protective, yet slim case. It comes in 4 colors, Hot Pink, Charcoal, Purple, and Black and is available now for $49 through Ballistic’s website or through their selected retailers.
