PadPivot NST hands-on
Essentially, the PadPivot NST is a collapsible universal stand that features a new Nano Suction Technology that allows its adhesive pad to stick onto any glossy surface – and in this case, smartphones and tablets. Testing it out with a bunch of devices, it’s amazing that the adhesive pad manages to really keep things firmly still in place. And without much movement too! Even better, it'll work with devices that are in cases too, as long as the surface of the case is glossy of course. Moreover, the pivoting stand allows for several propping configurations.
If you have your hands full with other things, you’ll surely appreciate the PadPivot NST’s ability to be strapped onto your leg too for a better hands-free experience on the go or at home – well, with the aid of a tether strap for extra support and stability. Indeed, it’s a bit weird having to strap this thing onto your leg in public, but hey, if it’s something that maximizes your productivity, it’s not doubt going to keep your hands free for other things.
With a $40 price point, it seems reasonable enough – especially when its adhesive pad doesn’t leave any messy marks on our devices.
