With a new trend popping up in the market every few weeks, the PopSocket is one of the latest and it has changed the mobile phone industry. Have you ever looked at the back of someone’s phone or tablet and see this odd circular-looking disc on the back? It’s a good chance that you’re looking at a PopSocket and their main purpose is to pop out like a mini slinky and provide several uses like being a firm stand for your phone or just to help you hold it better when taking a selfie. Those are just a few of its creative uses but does it benefit you when travelling? Let us take a look.
Fewer chances of falling
Because the PopSocket is so versatile, it also has the function of giving you a better grip on your mobile device regardless of your location. Imagine doing a video call while walking or climbing and you trip over something. With the PopSocket in place, it is less likely that your phone will fall from your hands and shatter when it hits the ground. Plus, the flexible material will give your phone some amount of protection; that’s if it lands on the back. Look at it as saving some money in your pocket instead of looking to have your phone repaired or replaced.
Have you ever reached into your bag for your earphones and everything came out in a big knot? If you own a pair, then this is a problem you probably had to deal with too many times to count. By wrapping them around your PopSocket, not only will they be easier to locate, but it will also save you the trouble of spending five minutes to untangle them just to have a conversation or listen to your music in peace.
Multi-surface sticker and media stand
Let’s say, for example, you’re in the kitchen or shower, but there’s some drama happening in your favourite series that you don’t want to miss. Unfortunately, you can’t bring the phone because if it gets too close, that could spell water damage. With a PopSocket all you need to do is stick it to the wall or just high enough to avoid the water from the sink. No need to sit up anymore when you can just lay down and the PopSocket doubles as a stand for your phone.
This is one of the things that make the PopSocket a common phone accessory among the younger folk because you can use it only when you need it. This simply means that even though it can pop right in and lay flat on your phone, you can always take it off and reattach it later. Seeing that it may be used regularly, it may need cleaning from time to time. You can remove it without having to worry about having to get a new one because you can snap it right back on after it’s dry.
There are a million things that can happen while travelling and this includes your phone getting stolen. While on your adventure, you can pull it out and lock it to one of your front pockets. This way, it can remain secure at all times and there’s less concern about someone trying to swipe it out of your hand.
PopSockets are available in various sizes, shapes and colours, so there is a wide variety to choose from. You can even customize your own by adding your favourite colours and pictures. The PopSocket is simple but very useful, to say the least.
