Tesco Hudl 2 soft touch case

Tesco Hudl 2 review

If you're in the market for an inexpensive case to provide a little extra protection for your new investment then the £20 soft touch case fits the bill nicely.

The soft rubber finish provides useful additional grip and the screen cover means the display is protected when not in use - perfect when it comes to sliding the Hudl 2 into a bag.

This case also doubles as a stand, allowing you to enjoy hands free video sessions, especially handy when on the train or in bed.

Tesco Hudl 2 protective bumper

Tesco Hudl 2 review

Planning on handing the Hudl 2 over to the kids? Then you might want to wrap it in this protective bumper - it's even got some funky stars on the back and it's available in blue and pink.

It's a touch cheaper than the soft case at £15, but you don't get the screen cover/stand combo and it's not as subtle in the design department.

It will, however, protect your Hudl 2 from various knocks and bumps and that's worth the price tag in itself.

Tesco Hudl 2 keyboard case

Tesco Hudl 2 review

Turn your Tesco Hudl 2 into a mini laptop with the keyboard case. This case with integrated Bluetooth keyboard makes text input a doddle.

The battery inside the keyboard is good for 90 hours on a single charge, so you won't need to remember to pack a second charging cable if you go out and about.

It's only available in black and at £40 it's one of the more expensive accessory options, but well worth it if you'll be doing a lot of typing.

Hudl stylus

Tesco Hudl 2 review

Compatible with the original Hudl as well as the Hudl 2, this simple stylus is available in five different colours and costs just £5.

It doubles as a pen too, with a ball point pen at one end and a stylus tip at the other. Plus it works on other touchscreen phones and tablets, giving you real bang for your buck.

Hudl kid's headphones

Tesco Hudl 2 review

Is the noise from that game the children insist on playing at full volume on the Hudl 2 starting to really test your nerves? Get them a pair of headphones!

Tesco offers up these highly affordable, Hudl branded pair for just £12, and sound is limited to 80 decibels to protect their tiny eardrums. Bless.
