Gadget Review: Tab Arm and Flex Tripod from iStabilizer

Tablets and smartphones are undoubtedly part of the landmark technological advancements in the last decade. We can do more with them than we dreamed of before, and there doesn’t look to be a stopping point on the horizon. Yet while they become more and more useful, there are certain things we would love to use them for without having to hold onto them. Secondary monitors, mounted cameras, and all types of creative uses, but what is the best way out there to secure our expensive new toys?

The Tab Arm and Flex Tripod from iStabilizer do the trick with incredible ease. I’ll go over them separately.

Tab Arm allows you to mount your tablet to nearly any surface.

The Tab Arm is a new way to mount your tablet to nearly any surface. The 11″ stainless steel articulating arm can turn and rotate in every direction, giving the user unprecedented angles to choose from. You can use your tablet as a dual monitor, teleprompter, or just a way to keep an extra picture of your family displayed close by while you work. It tightens and loosens with no problem or unnecessary strain.

It’s also comparable with all 7″ to 10″ tablets, so you don’t have to be a MacFanatic to use this (like me.)

 

The Flex Tripod is lightweight, pliable, and can wrap itself around nearly anything. You can mount and point your

smartphone camera virtually anywhere. Out of all the mini-tripods I’ve used in the past, this one by far has the best grip without trading functionality or adding weight. It works with virtually all smartphones, but for the larger ones (iPhone 6 Plus, Galaxy Note 4, and the like), you’ll need an adapter from iStabilizer.

I can vouch that iPhone 6 works fine, since the Flex Tripod is what I use to shoot my YouTube show. The smartphone mount is also detachable and can be used with any standard tripod.

Together the Flex Tripod and the Tab Arm give you a combo punch for your devices extremely hard to beat. The Tab Arm runs $99.95 and the Flex Tripod is $29.95.
