You have a car. You have a center console. You have a cup holder. You have an iPad. Why not put them all together?
I’ve seen a few iterations of this, but most of them fall short to me because they cut down on your space too much. This one does a great job of almost giving you more space. They added a phone or wallet holding space under the tablet leg.
This is the mount that fits in a cupholder to provide easy access to an iPad or tablet computer. Its cylindrical base expands to fit any cupholder up to 3.3“ in diameter while the mounting frame holds an iPad or any tablet 5 1/2–11” H x 4 1/2–7 3/4″ W and enables full portrait-to-landscape 360º rotation.
The whole point of something like this is the ability to put it where you need it. Static stands that just point upward do no good. This mount does a great job of giving you full rotation:
The mounting bracket’s swiveling joint adjusts forward and backward for an optimal viewing angle; mounting bracket folds away when not being used and the base removes from a cupholder easily.
If you’re looking for something like this, I think this is one of the best. If you use an Invisible Shield or have a case you like then this one will definitely work better than the others that require a specific case.
It’s available for $49 over at Hammacher Schlemmer.
Yes the iPad is upside down in the picture. I didn’t take it, Hammer Schlemmer did.
