I have been reviewing products from Just Mobile for years. The company recently released a collection of high-end cases, containers, and holders for iPhones and iPads. The designs further Just Mobile's tradition of making quality aluminum accessories designed with a sleek, Apple-inspired look. This article takes a look at three of these new products to see how well they hold up to my high expectations for the brand.
1. AluCup ($29.95)
Its base is stable without having an exaggerated weight, maintaining its sleek design while preserving its trustworthy anti-tipping functionality. As a bonus, you can use the AluCup to hold an iPad Mini, though doing so doesn't offer the nice angle of the iPhone since the iPad Mini is too large to fit in the AluCup's circumference. Instead, the rubber ring lining the top of the cup keeps the iPad Mini from slipping as it rests at a usable, though not ideal, angle. The AluCup is available in four colors: black, red, blue, and yellow.
Overall, the AluCup makes a desk with a charging iPhone or iPad look more attractive and organized compared to a desk sans cup. Using it as an iPad Mini stand is a bit of a stretch, but using it as an iPhone holder is a treat.
