I don’t know about you, but sometimes I cringe when I have to place my phone into one of those standard plastic car smartphone mounts that just feels over-sized and not very good looking. To the rescue comes the eleMount premium iPhone and iPad stand / mount, following a very successful Kickstarter project.
The founders of eleMount have realised that there is a need for a more premium style mount / stand for your favourite Apple gadget, so they have made it simple, discreet, and from premium material that includes CNC machined aluminum. This little beauty is made up of two elePads that come together using a ball-and-socket functionality, allowing for multiple viewing angles. There are no suction cups or clamps, instead each of the elePads uses Polyethylene stick pads to secure both the eleMount itself to a surface, as well as securing your iPhone or other smartphone to the eleMount. Plus, it doesn’t leave any messy residue on your phone afterwards.
As I write this the eleMount is on its final day of Kickstarter funding, and from a goal of raising $10,000, they have to date raised over $160,000, thereby proving that there definitely is a demand for a well crafted premium mount / stand for your iPhone or iPad. Personally, i’m looking forward to testing it out in the car.
If you are quick you can still grab one off Kickstarter for a discounted price. Expected retail price for the eleMount (dependent on finish) is $79.99. They are expecting to deliver the first ones around December this year or January 2014.
