When you’re behind a desk, you would normally like your tablet raised at an angle. A smart cover or similar products may provide the desired angle, but not everyone likes that type of cover and not all devices have them in the first place. Lucky ones have their device with a built-in stand. All the rest may use this separate one.
It is made of soft silicone and weights less than 20 grams. It is basically a ball with a suction cup, which you mount of the surface and place your device on. The angle is perfect, and it also acts as a shock absorber. Actually, the manufacturer’s idea was to suction the stand to your device and place the ball on the desk, but that is not a good way to do it and doesn’t work at all if you use a silicone, leather or any other soft cover.
