Handi Holder Review
Handi Holder (stylized as “HandiHolder”) is a mount for smart phones and tablets. Featuring a magnetic head, it can work with almost any cell phone, smart phone, or tablet. There are two mounting options: suction cup and vent mounts. The magnetic head features a 360-degree pivot, so you can turn your device upright or on its side without worrying about it falling over.
You’ve probably seen older As Seen on TV phone holders, such as GripGo, which were met with lukewarm consumer reviews. The makers of Handi Holder appear to have fixed some of the issues that have plagued previous phone holders advertised on TV, such as that of a long, weak arm. The locking suction cup should hold in most cases, especially if the surface is smooth, flat, and hard, while the magnet should keep your device in place. That said, you may want to experiment with the product’s ability to hold your device before hanging your expensive tablet over a bathtub as shown in the advertising. The magnet may not grip your device as well as a common spring-loaded holder, but it offers more convenience when placing it or removing it from Handi Holder.
We like that you can use it as a suction or a vent mount, and this is a feature that most competitors do not offer. The magnetic holder isn’t necessarily a positive or a negative. Some consumers prefer more secure spring-loaded holders, while others like the ability to quickly attach or remove a device to a magnet.
Overall, Handi Holder should get the job done for the vast majority of customers who use it. Whether or not it can compete with established (and less expensive) items on the market remains to be seen.
If you’re primarily looking for a vent mount, you may want to consider the $8 WizGear Air Vent Mount, which has a 4.4 star rating among over 10,000 reviews.
One of the highest rated and top selling suction car mounts is the iOttie Easy One Touch 2, which costs about $20 and has a 4.3 star rating among over 23,000 reviews.
