Phone stand, sync, charging cable in one

We had declared a moratorium on testing cellphone accessories, but made an exception for the new Une Bobine Stand, Sync, and Charging Cable from FuseChicken. This 24-inch long, 1/4-inch-thick flexible metal coil has a USB plug at one end and a sturdy, minimalistic cellphone dock at the other (available in models for iPhone 4/4S, 5/5S/5C, and Android phones with micro-USB ports). Coil the metal as tightly or loosely, high or low-standing as you like (depending on what seems most stable for your phone). Plug the USB end into your computer or a USB wall charger. Then slide your phone's power port onto the Une Bobine's Lightning - or 30-pin or micro USB - adapter, which has a slim plastic vertical backboard to keep the phone stable. The gap between the charging unit and the backboard is just wide enough to accommodate most cellphone cases - a rarity with many docks. The device stays steady, so you can use it as a tripod, either coiled solo or wrapped around a tree branch or other object.


Une Bobine Flexible Cellphone Stand, Sync, and Charging Cable is $19.95 to $34.95 at www.fusechicken.com.
