How Can We Protect Our Smartphones?

There are many products out there to help us properly secure this essential gadget in our vehicles.

We live in a society where people treat their gadgets like prized possessions. When some of us pay a couple hundred dollars for a smartphone, it’s understandable that we baby our toys.

We use our smart phones to stay connected with friends and family. For many of us, our phones are extension of our office. With more than 85 percent of adults in the U.S. being proud owners of cell phones, it’s clear that this somewhat tiny gadget has become an integrated part of our lives.

But there is one problem. When on the road, in our vehicles, we place our phones in the following places:

  • Dashboard
  • Console
  • Cup holder
  • Plastic, mounted cell phone holder
  • Vent holder
  • Passenger seat

Those are okay if you don’t mind your phone banging around, being thrown on the floorboard, or even the accidental spill. We don’t mind getting cracks on our phones, do we? Let’s get real folks. Many of us deal with poor solutions because we have to. Those aren’t our first choices.

Enter a new solution that may just be the greatest thing since sliced bread. In all seriousness, the MobiValet is pretty genius solution for storing your ever so precious smartphone in your vehicle. Patented and created by a Silicon Valley couple, the MobiValet is a smartphone accessory for your car that mounts to a flat surface.

What makes MobiValet different is its sleek design. It’s made of premium material like leather. It mounts easily to a flat surface in your vehicle, doesn’t take up precious console space or block air vents. You can have your phone within arm’s reach while it’s still plugged in. It’s not embarrassing or bulky. If your coworkers or business partners ride with you, it will look professional and classy instead of bulky and obnoxious like other smarthphone holder accessories.

MobiValet is owned by Silicon Valley’s Clay and Danielle LaFargue. Clay actually designed the original MobiValet out of pure frustration after mishaps with his phone. Now this smartphone vehicle accessory is available for sale online at mobivalet.com. You can meet Clay and Danielle if you’re going to the CES event in Las Vegas Jan. 9.
