Giveaway: PED4 Planet CH50 Tabletop Stand & Tripod Mount for iPhone

Submitted by on September 16, 2013 – 1:53 pm 55 Comments

The PED4 Planet CH50 is a fully pivoting adjustable iPhone stand and tripod mount. With or without a case, you can use the PED4 Planet and the PED4 CH50 mount to hold your iPhone in position securely for many purposes.

This week, we’re giving away two PED4 Planet CH50 tabletop stands. To learn more about this accessory and to be eligible to win one, keep reading past the jump.

ped4 planet, iphone, tabletop stand

The PED4 Planet CH50 is a pretty solid table top iPhone stand. It’s adjustable so it will work with the new iPhones, iPhone 5, iPhone 4 models, and some other mobile phones as well.

The pivoting head rotates 360° so you can orient your iPhone horizontally or vertically. The PED4 Planet can be used to hold your iPhone in position and steady for FaceTime calls. Rotate the mount to landscape position to hold your iPhone while watching movies on it. I use mine to hold my iPhone while I surf the Internet over breakfast and coffee.

The PED4 Planet works with both naked, (without a case) and cased iPhones.

Using the supplied tools, you size the mounting fingers to your phone. I found the set up to be a little clunky for me, but it’s something you only have to do once. After that, your device is held securely but pops in and out easily. I use an olloclip Quick-Flip case and I have no problems using this mount. All of the controls, ports and camera are fully accessible at all times. The mount has plenty of clearance for using with either olloclip lens system. It works okay when using lenses with the olloclip case, but I found for some reason the mount was a little loose when the case’s lens cover is flipped.

The PED4 Planet can also be used as a tripod mount. Just unscrew it from the base and mounts easily onto any standard 1/4″-20 tripod mount.

The PED4 Planet is pretty a solid accessory, not cheap lightweight plastic. As a stand, it’s much more steady than other stands available. It’s not very portable – nothing about it is pocket-sized. It’s useful for hands-free operation of your iPhone at home or in the office.

The complete tabletop unit is priced at $49.99 it may be more than some might want to spend, but especially if you’re frustrated with the lack of stability of other iPhone stands, this may be worth a look to you. With the holidays coming up, this might make a good gift for the iPhoneographer who has everything.

Don’t need a tabletop? The PED4 CH50 Tripod Mount without the base is also sold as a standalone unit for about $35.

  • GregMills

    Hmm, so the bolt looking part is also where it would mount to a tripod?

    • http://lifeinlofi.com/ Marty Yawnick

      Yep. It unbolts from the base and the entire top part of the unit can be mounted to a tripod.
