Today I’m going to talk to you about this nifty little tool I came across on Amazon. It’s the i.Trek SupaMount F. Which is a mouth full of of words to say a super cool tripod mount/stand for your mobile device. The packaging list any mobile phone/iPod of course it also says ‘you will no more need a digital camera.’ 🙂
The key thing is how adjustable the ‘clamp’ is so that you can use it on a variety of devices and with a good selection of cases as well. And while it doesn’t say that it works with the iPad, it does for the most part. I say for the most part because you can use it as a stand pretty well, however it doesn’t hold as security as I’d like in order to trust it as a tripod mount for my iPads, but as you can see in these photos it works well as a stand.
It’s crafted from solid aluminum and has a nice sturdy feel without feeling heavy. The clamp is padded so it won’t scratch the device, however if you aren’t careful the padding can activate the touch sensors of the screen so make sure you have it on the bevel.
The SupaMount also has two different mounting holes to give you a options when you need to put it on to a tripod. It’s a nifty little stand that works really great for phones and some tablets, however with my 7 inch Nexus the edges are too curved and it can’t good and decent grip on it. However with the Kindle Fire it seems to get a nice tight fit.
I would definitely use this more for mobile phones then I would a tablet, I give it 4 out of 5 stars for mobile phones but only a 2 out of 5 for tablets.
