Except for those people who could not imagine a minute of separation from their iPad the product could hardly be considered useful. It is adjustable as per the size of your iPad or kindle. The paper towel stand is the means by which the product differentiated itself from the rest of iPad stands available in the market. Yet, this differentiation was not much of a use. But this is still the best choice for your bathroom decor. The company also successfully ended up getting the award for the weirdest invention. How is the paper towel an added feature? A question the company failed to answer.
The Phone Soap Charger
Looking for a way to sanitize your smartphone? Then the Phone Soap Charger is the smart choice (if only you wanted to sanitize your Smartphone). This device is a universal charger as well as a phone sanitizer. All you need to do is place your phone in the box, close the lid and the UV-C rays clean your phone. The box also contains small holes in the bottom, so you don’t miss out on the notifications. This gadget seems to focus on hygiene freaks. Yet this phone sanitizer proved no good for a gadget, for probably no one out there is on a hunt for bacteria free smartphones.
