Nite Ize: The Ultimate in Smartphone Convenience

Let’s face it, at this point your phone is part of your daily wardrobe. But even calling it a “phone” is a misnomer: The last decade has seen mobile devices evolve from clunky portable telephones to extraordinarily powerful entertainment devices that just happen to fit into your pocket. Or sit on the table, be propped up on your desk or bounce around in your vehicle as you drive.


That’s why the Steelie® system from Nite Ize® is such a great addition to your world. The Steelie line of products make it ridiculously easy to have your phone on a stand by your desktop computer, and quickly adjust it to the perfect angle for watching TV or keeping track of Twitter and Facebook. It’s a system that’s ready to deck out your car with more mounting spots, whether attached directly to your windshield or clipped neatly to an air vent. And that bedside table is another perfect location, as is the conference table in your office. In fact, there are hundreds of places you’ll want to have a Steelie mount ready to use.

The secret to the entire Steelie system is the powerful magnet that connects with a satisfying “click” to whatever Steelie mount you decide works best for your setup. For example, here’s a view of the Tabletop Stand with my Android phone ready for action.

What’s most useful about the Steelie design is that it’s super easy to tweak and adjust angles and orientation unlike most competing desktop stands. Watch the World Cup while working? They’ve got ya covered.

Jump into the car and there are just as many different solutions including the latest addition to the line, the slick Steelie Windshield Mount Kit Plus. Through the use of an adjustable arm and ingenious suction cup that locks into place on your windshield, it’s ideal for using your smartphone as a navigation system in the car without risking it reorienting, falling off or distracting you. Don’t want a magnet on your phone? No problem. Steelie offers the FreeMount™, which is perfect for using Steelie with multiple phones. The MultiStick™ Adapter is also available to make the magnet easily removable and replaceable.

If you’re like most people, you’re fed up with cheap knock-off solutions from overseas that work for a few days - if at all - and then fall apart. That’s another reason you’re going to really appreciate the Steelie system: it’s so well made that these are going to work for the next fifty years, far longer than your smartphone will be around!

You can get started with the Steelie system - since you want to ensure that you get a Magnetic Phone Socket for the phone itself along with whatever mounts you need - by checking out the Steelie Pedestal Kit for Smartphones. You’ll see, soon enough you’ll have ‘em everywhere like me.

From the "Batmobile" to the Jetson's Fridge, Products we saw and Liked at CES 2016

Posted by Kelly Richardson

For the consumer electronics industry, the New Year kicks off with one of the largest international tradeshows - the Consumer Electronics Show. The Nite Ize team just finished breaking down our 1,500-square-foot booth following this year's showcase in Las Vegas. Our heads are still spinning, feet are still throbbing and bodies still trying to adjust to the lack of sleep and stimulation overload but we already can't wait to do it all again next year. Why? Because we thrive on innovation and love any opportunity to talk about our new products and see what other innovators are doing.

Nite Ize was among thousands of companies launching new product at the show and, although it's impossible to see everything, we were able to break out of our bubble to check some of the hot new tech products for 2016.

One of our favorites? The Faraday Future FFZERO1 Concept car.

This "Batmobile" takes the future of electric cars to the next level. If developed, the FFZERO1 will have more than 1,000 horsepower, a top speed of 200 mph and a zero-to-60 time of less than three seconds. The vehicle is door-less so the driver enters through a canopy that opens like a fighter jet. Like many technologies introduced at CES though, this is not necessarily consumer-friendly but it certainly is impressive.

 

Another awesome find on the showroom floor was the Samsung Family Hub refrigerator.

With a giant built-in Wi-Fi touchscreen, this Jetson's-style kitchen appliance features an app you can use to order groceries online and another app to control lighting and temperature in the fridge. There are also cameras on the inside so you can check inventory while you're at the store. This is not the first smart fridge from Samsung but it just might be the one that changes the way we interact with our appliances.

 

It's hard to compete with ultra-advanced, high-tech products like these but one product that proved to catch on during the show was the new Nite Ize Gear Tie Cordable.

Awarded a "Best of CES" award from iPhone Life Magazine, the Gear Tie Cordable is a reusable rubber twist tie with a strong wire inside that holds its shape and provides a unique method to secure tech cords. Our booth was swarmed with consumer electronics' enthusiasts looking for something to "wow" them and the convenient simplicity of the Gear Tie Cordable sure did.

These products will reign over the next year until CES 2017 when the newest generation of technology and innovation emerges and we can't wait!

A Mobile Device Accessory For Thanksgiving?

Posted by Brenda Isaac

Nov 23, 2013 8:30:00 PM


The Thanksgiving countdown is officially on! I can't wait to dig into that juicy turkey and then lie comatose on the couch watching football for the rest of the day. I have to admit that I was challenged by a co-worker to somehow relate Nite Ize products to Thanksgiving for this week's blog posting. Their knowing smile as they walked away from my office told me they were certain that I would find no meaningful connection. But, I've found my connection and it isn't even that much of a stretch - compared to my waistline after dinner that day anyways! Here are a few fantastic Nite Ize products to make this big Thanksgiving holiday more manageable and maybe even just a bit more fun!

Steelie Pedestal - Mobile Device Holder

1) Unless you serve your family Thanksgiving-like dinners throughout the year (um... no) you are going to need some recipes to get you to the dinner table. The Steelie Pedestal Kit is a mobile device accessory that is perfect for attaching to the back of your ipad or other tablet. Just place this universal holder on your countertop at exactly the perfect angle to view your recipe apps while slaving away at the stove. Your friends and family will be impressed by your organization and you will be grateful for the ability to keep your day organized with your ipad while keeping it positioned exactly where you need it with the Steelie Pedestal Kit.

Gear Tie - Reusable Rubber Twist Tie

2) Do you serve wine or sparkling cider with your appetizers or dinner? Everyone has a set of wine charms that they dust off around the holidays, but I think the 3’ Gear Tie is perfect for marking wine glasses! Bonus: they are so versatile that you will use them for wrapping the cord on the stand mixer or twist tying up those leftover bags you send home with your guests. Buy a few extra, trust me.

Flashflight - LED Light Up Disc

3) So, what do you do when dinner is done? Most people I know carefully excuse themselves from the kitchen to avoid doing dishes and then promptly pass out in a chair somewhere. But, have you noticed this NEVER seems to happen with the kids? Keep the little ones entertained and out of the kitchen by passing out a few Nite Ize LED Toys & Games after you are done eating. Send them outside to play a game of Flashflight or toss the MeteorLight LED Ball around the backyard with the dog. This tactic is tried & true at my house and is a guaranteed winner at your Thanksgiving too!

However you choose to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday, please remember – if you get your cousin Terry’s cold from accidently drinking from his glass of cabernet, it isn’t my fault. I reminded you about the wine charms. Happy Thanksgiving from Nite Ize!
