Kenu Airframe+ Review


Car docks for our smartphones can sometimes be distracting, especially when they occupy that middle area of the dashboard or windshield. If you own one, then you know exactly what we’re talking about – just like those traditional GPS docks. Well, if you want to keep your windshield clean and free of obstruction, the Kenu Airframe+ portable car mount might be the companion that you’ve been waiting for.

Unlike the usual docks that need to be suctioned to some sort of flat surface, whether it’s the windshield or dashboard, the Airframe+ is a minimalist looking dock that inconspicuously attaches to any air vent in your car’s cabin. Frankly, we’re digging the miniscule size and how it doesn’t occupy a whole lot of real estate – unlike those sometimes obstructively placed windshield mounted docks. Relying on a patent-pending design for its rotating clip, the Airframe+’s clip attaches perfectly to the air vent in our car. Now, if you have an unusual air vent design, there’s no need to be alarmed because it works with any vent type. From the traditional square shaped ones, to the circular, you won’t have to worry.


Pros

  • Simple, minimalist design that makes it discrete
  • Our smartphone can be cooled down because it's in front of a vent
  • The view of our windshield isn't obstructed
  • Doubles as a stand too

Cons

  • it's pricey for a tiny-sized thing

No picture of it not installed? That's kind of odd imo.

I checked it out on Amazon and on the official website. It is a lot of money for not very much product, but if it does it's job as well as the reviews suggest, it may well be the best purchase I've made in a while!

I like that it cools down the device as well.. specially when using Navigation/Waze + Music. But I got the Sony XSP-N1BT instead which doubles as a Dock for your phone. http://www.amazon.com/Sony-XSPN1BT-Bluetooth-Smartphone-Receiver/dp/B00JY7ZP6O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1406128009&sr=8-1&keywords=sony+xsp-n1bt
