I own a magnetic sleeve and it’s great. I keep all my paperwork in the outside pocket while I’m traveling around South East Asia. For pictures please search around the forum. Pretty sure the “meetup in Ulm” thread has some, the sleeves haven’t changed since then
Oh and it’s also practical to put it underneath the Vs kickstand if you’re having trouble using it on your lap or the kickstand digs into your legs too much. I don’t have this problem but it’s good to have.
Have some Photoshop experience but not on my V yet and won’t be able to tell you more about it from here, sorry.
Battery life has been good for me but I’ve mostly been watching videos and filling out paperwork for the government. Generally not using it alot while traveling.
