Awhile back, I wrote about the wonders of the Kenu Airframe (along with the Kenu Airframe+). These are vent-mounted cell phone holders that do a great job of keeping your phone in reach/view while on the road.
Well, as they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and I’ve since a handful of alternative brands offering very similar solutions. Here are three that can handle smartphones with screen sizes up to 6″, like the Airframe+, while being considerably cheaper:
- URPOWER Portable Vent Mount ($10.99 w/free shipping)
- Infinity Cell Phone Holder ($11.99 w/free shipping)
- Mlison Car Phone Mount ($12.99 w/free shipping)
For reference, the Airframe and Airframe+ typically sell for $10-$15 more than these off brand solutions. But, like the Kenu vent mounts, these all have very high rating on Amazon. Given this, price should probably factor heavily into your decision.
And, just in case you’re looking for the proverbial better mousetrap, here are two more options that add a twist (literally) to the same basic design by incorporating a 360° rotating swivel into the vent clip:
- KeyMexx Air Vent Holder ($14.99 w/free shipping)
- Nexcon Universal Car Mount ($14.99 w/free shipping)
Once again, these are both highly rated on Amazon. I can’t personally vouch for them, but they do appear to add some nice flexibility to Kenu’s basic design.
With all of that said… If you’ve fallen in love with a particular phone mount, please share the details in the comments section, below — or hit me up via the contact form.
