pi Mount, LLC yesterday announced the debut of the pi Mount. The pi Mount allows an iPhone owner to charge their phone at a wall outlet safely and securely using the wall charger provided by Apple, even when there is no suitable resting surface nearby.
"pi Mount is a simple, elegant solution to a problem many iPhone owners face," said James Gourley, CEO of piMount, LLC and creator of the pi Mount. "Many times in the past, especially when traveling, I struggled to find a place to charge my iPhone where I wouldn't have to set it on the floor. This led me to design the pi Mount."
It is compatible not only with iPhones, but pi Mount also works with iPods, iPads and any other Apple i-device that can charge its internal battery using the OEM Apple charger. It almost works with many other mobile electronic devices that use a charger approximately the same size as the Apple charger.
The patented design of the pi Mount clips to the top of an Apple charger housing plugged into the wall, and holds the iPhone in a cradle above the charger. pi Mount is also compatible with most iPhone and iPod cases.
iPhone owners can use pi Mount in the bedroom, hotel rooms, and airports to keep their iPhones off the floor while they juice up. pi Mount can also keep an iPhone off the counter and safe from spills in bathrooms and kitchens, while the screen remains visible for reading recipes, watching video or listening to music.
The pi Mount is case-compatible, lightweight and travel-ready. pi Mount is available for $9 (including free shipping) from the company's website.
