The hit mobile phone grip is now available in the Philippines.
In 2010, Philosophy professor David Barnett had a problem: when getting his groove on listening to music on his phone, his earphones got tangled. In a moment of genius, he glued a button to the back of his phone to keep the cord neatly wrapped – this was the moment when the seed for PopSockets was planted. Fast forward to today, that simple button had expanded into a simple device that really did work great as a cord wrap, but also as a handy phone grip and a phone stand too.
What’s A PopSockets Grip?
PopSockets Grip phone grips and stands that are collapsible, customizable, and re-positionable. They are also a great tool to store untangled earphones by simply winding them over the knobs. With the PopSockets Mount, you can hang your phone just about anywhere. It slides easily into the Mount for hands free function while driving, video chatting and more
It may have started out of David’s garage but PopSockets soon became a commercial success. It is a huge hit with many fans including celebrities such as Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Fifth Harmony, Serena Williams, Gigi Hadid, Jared Leto and Michael Phelps.
