eleMount is one of the latest Kickstarter accessories to offer a simple and versatile mounting solution for smartphones and small tablets alike. The eleMount sells itself as a premium, universal aluminum mount that uses special, reusable adhesive sticky pads called elePads which form a strong bond on any flat surface without leaving behind any residue. The eleMount uses two of these elePads to secure itself onto car windshields, desks while the other lets you securely mount any smartphone or tablet like the iPad that has a flat smooth back, in either vertical or horizontal orientation. For movement, the eleMount's metal ball joint offers a firm 360-degree viewing angle adjustment without clamping down any locking mechanism. Unscrewing its bottom elePad reveals a threaded 1/4" 20 tripod adapter.
eleMount’s simple and sleek design is due in part to its proprietary elePads, which eliminate the need for unsightly plastic locks and clamps. These polyurethane pads stick to almost any flat surface for incredible versatility, while their edgeless design supports a wide range of devices including iPhone 4/4s, iPhone 5, iPad, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy Tab, HTC One and many more. The elePad’s easy-to-use design works just as you’d expect. Simply mount the elePad to any clean, dry surface, apply pressure and you're done.
Although eleMount specifically claims to work on smooth flat surfaces, devices like the HTC One and Moto X which have a tapered back design to them will also work with the eleMount due to the large elePads and their great sticky compound. Early backers can secure an eleMount in either black or silver anodized and sandblasted matte finish for $59. For people who are more interested in the universal tripod mount side, there's the eleMount mini which is the same as the original model but without the elePad bottom portion that screws on and off.
