The Best On-Road, Off-Road, Phone Holder You Can Buy
The Best On-Road, Off-Road, Phone Holder You Can Buy In today’s modern world, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to put down our smartphones. With the features that nearly all devices have nowadays, there’s good reason to always have your phone by your side. For motorcyclists, however, the cell phone becomes a little more important, as it functions as a safety device and for many, as their primary navigation device.
Neatly packaged and logically designed, the GUB G91 Mobile Holder with Quick Charger 2.5A is a breeze to mount to any tubular surface on your motorcycle. Namely, your bike’s handlebars.
The mounting process is straight-forward: simply select a location to mount the Phone Holder, select the appropriate combination of different sized spacers included in the package, and tighten the aluminium locking ring with the included Allen key. The Phone Holder, with its assorted spacers, is capable of being mounted to any handlebar between 22 and 32mm.
Proper positioning of the Phone Holder on your handlebars is critical and may require some trial and error, as your tank bag can obscure the view of your phone’s screen. The process of determining what location is going to work best for you will require some time and a few test-runs around the block.
Charging your phone with other conventional phone mounts on the market today requires feeding your power cord through a series of adapters, and then somehow securing the cord itself from whipping around in the wind. This is where the GUB G91 Mobile Holder with Quick Charger 2.5A differs from the competition – the Phone Holder features an integrated charger, discretely embedded within the mounting surface itself. To power the Phone Holder, the user simply connects the main power line to their motorcycle’s battery.
For many adventure riders, the expense is a large contributing factor in deciding what accessories to adorn their pride and joy with. The Phone Holder comes in at roughly half the price as other popular phone mounts available to riders today. Dedicated GPS devices are expensive and sometimes difficult to learn how to operate. GUB G91 Mobile Holder with Quick Charger 2.5A, paired with a GPS navigation app, can turn your phone into a do-it-all alternative to spending on a stand-alone motorcycle GPS.
In terms of phone security while at speed, the Phone Holder cradles your expensive device with the help of rubberized surfaces and a threaded guide rod that the user can adjust to their desired pressure. At no point over the course of approximately 10,000 plus KMs on asphalt and off-road, there were no signs of the phone getting loosened or vibrations distorting the display image.
Coming in at a highly affordable price point, GUB G91 Mobile Holder with Quick Charger 2.5A couldn’t get much better. However, buyer beware – the temptation to check your email and text messages while riding increases significantly with every notification being displayed in front of you while riding. Placing your phone on aeroplane mode will allow users to still access their GPS and maintain a distraction-free cockpit. Always use better judgment in using your device while moving.
