Discovering a Cell Phone Holder7870821
Shopping for a cell phone holder seems easy enough, but it can be complex by limitless options. A holder could be a phone case or cradle, the possibilities are endless, spanning from unique novelty cases to a vehicle installed cell charger. Especially with blue tooth, the most common are car kits which I will focus on. Consider these 5 points before you buy. Do not worry-no technical experience required. Here are some typical options to assist select the right one for you.
Universal or Particular? There are holders designed for certain brands or specific models. One of the most important variations is whether or not you have a PDA or cell phone. This-along with size--is the only distinction that truly matters when looking for a universal holder. Universal holders are affordable (as low as $ten) and have a suction or adhesive mount for any vehicle. They are padded inside to secure a wide range of devices.
Passive or Active- This was confusing to me. I hadn't heard these terms used to describe a cell phone holder or cradle. Furthermore, it was difficult to find their meaning definitions weren't readily accessible on product sites. Ultimately, I discovered it refers to charge. In a nutshell, active will charge the phone while in the cradle, whilst passive will not. Although, you can plug a travel charger cable into your phone whilst it is on the passive holder. Fixed is installing the active cradle to connect to the vehicle's electrical system.
Installation- Installation is simple with windshield or dash suction mounts. Adhesive discs are also common and can be placed anywhere. An additional solution is a mounting platform like Proclip. The clips to dashboard seams for permanent and safe attachment. A screwdriver is required but not to screw it to the car-no damage is done. If you're going for the gold, and want the electrical connection, leave it to a professional.
Mount place and phone size- Mount on the vent, dashboard, windshield, console and cigarette lighter. It's easier to find cigarette lighter mounts for small phones, keep the bigger models on the dash.
