15 of the most ridiculous mobile accessories
One of the greatest benefits of the Internet is that anybody with a great idea can bring their imagination to market. Unfortunately, a lot of people’s self-perceived great ideas as just ideas, or worse, terrible ideas.

Recently we took a look at iPhone cases that were so ridiculous they went beyond the threshold of even usable; today, we are going to take a look at a collection of mobile accessories for both phones and tablets that range from funny and weird to just plain dangerous.

Just in case you disagree and think any of these items are a must-have, we’ve taken the liberty of including the product links in the slide titles.

Without further ado, here are 15 of the most ridiculous mobile accessories that we could dig up.

The umbilical cord charger is DISTURBING. I don't want to hear my phone move all night as it's charging. It looks gross! lol It looks more like some alien leech or something crazy like that!

Also the iPad steering mount is just such a sweet invention. This should be standard on all vehicles being sold from now on. I bet insurance companies will love these fabulous steering holders for the iPad! lol

And the iPad steering wheel mount should be provided free of charge by Apple to every iPad owner.

Such disrespect!!! Don't poke fun at George W. Bush. The man brought freedom to Iraq,and kept the greatest country in the world, America safe during his whole term. I'm reporting this.

how did that steering wheel mount even make it to market? There is no way some federal agency would have allowed that 'death-waiting-to-happen' hit the stores.

Oh, I don't know. I could see getting those steering wheel iFad holders for several of my iFad owning acquaintances. It just might be worth the money.

3 of them aren't that far fetched. The solar panel charger is clearly for people that are camping. How else would you charge your phone? The bathroom ipod dock is a good idea. Who doesn't like to listen to music in the shower? It's not all about being on the bowl, plus its got very good reviews at Amazon from the 12 people that bought it, lol. Last but not least, the iphone wrist-band holder. This looks like another device for the gym. Granted, armband holders are better placement but the wristband isn't that far fetched. NOTICE THAT ALL OF THESE WACKO DEVICES ARE MADE FOR THE IPHONE!!! That says alot about the mentality of iPhone owners lol.
