MonkeyOh Smartphone Holder hands-on
I recently had the opportunity to test out a neat Kickstarted creative charging adapter and smartphone accessory known as the MonkeyOh.
The MonkeyOh holds your smartphone’s AC USB Adapter, USB Cable and your smartphone so you can quickly find the perfect spot for your phone during charges. You can listen to music, watch a movie, and more with the MonkeyOh Stand. The best part is when you’re done charging you can wrap up your USB cable around the back and go.

This handy guy works with most iPhones and many other 3.5″-5″ screen-sized lightweight smartphones. Sorry Galaxy Note users, this one ain’t for you.
I’ve been able to watch a movie while my phone charges right from the wall which was pleasant. You can also use the MonkeyOh simply as a stand when not charging, watch movies, YouTube videos, etc.
The only drawback that I’ve noticed is that the stand isn’t always so tolerant with larger devices with cases – which is to be expected. This can be problematic when plugged directly in to an AC outlet. As long as you have a square Apple-esque AC USB adapter, you should be good to go. I think this works well for smartphones such as the Moto X and Moto G as well as the more popular mid-rangers.
The MonkeyOh is a stylish dock, stand, and cordwrap all-in-one and is available in quite a few different color options. Learn more at felixbrand.
