How It Works
The RadPak is
used quite simply as a storage case for the RadTech mouse. When you are not using
your RadTech mouse, you simply stored the mouse within the clamshell case, and use
the zipper to secure the case. The case can hold the RadTech bluetooth mice, but
it can also hold a similarly sized miniature wired mouse (the cable can be coiled
underneath the mouse).
How It Rates
The RadPak is a semi-rigid clamshell, and by semi-rigid, that basically means
that for incidental contact, such as dropping it on the floor, or tossing it to someone
across the room, the clamshell case will hold its form and protect the contents.
If, however, you wanted to squeeze the case, the strength of average hands can force
the shell to give way. You have to squeeze is unusually hard, something that is
unlikely to occur in normal use. That fact that it does give way gives it a softer
feel, which I actually prefer over a hard shell case.
The interior of the case is very soft, which helps prevent scratching of your mouse.
I have a laptop case that includes padded pockets as well, but I prefer the RadPak
for a couple of reasons. First of all, the padded pockets don't provide the protection
that the clamshell case provides. Within the confines of the case, it provides ample
protection, but if I were to place a hard and heavy object within the case, such
as a drive, the interior pocket of the laptop case would not provide much protection
from being crunched. Likewise, with the clamshell case, when I remove the mouse
from the laptop case, it is still protected. I might want to carry the laptop and
mouse to a different room, and with the RadPak, it stays protected until I'm actually
using the mouse.
One of the things I like best about the RadPak may not have even been part of the
design concept. Basically, the clamshell case makes it easier for me to locate the
mouse within my laptop case. The mice sized for laptops are much smaller than standard
mice, and fit into almost any pocket (and I have several pockets in my laptop case).
It isn't always obvious to me where the mouse is located when I go to look for it.
Stored in the RadPak case, it is much easier to locate the mouse, and the RadPak
is still compact enough to not take up too much room.
After several weeks of putting the case to some use, I was quite pleased with the
RadPak. The zipper mechanism zipped just as easily as it did the first day I used
it, and the clamshell case was just as firm. The RadPak is very sturdy and reliable
The RadTech RadPak is a semi-rigid clamshell case designed for the RadTech BT500
mouse, but can be used to
hold any of the small-sized laptop mice. It is made of a sturdy and reliable material
that holds its form after weeks of use, still offering ample protection for the mouse.
A side effect of using the RadPak, I found it much easier to locate my mouse within
my laptop case. The RadPak is an inexpensive add-on when purchasing with a RadTech
BT mouse, but unfortunately I could not find a buying option that allows you to purchase
the RadPak by itself. If you are thinking of purchasing a RadTech laptap mouse,
I strongly recommend adding on the RadPak travel case.
