On a crowdfunding platform Indiegogo there are a lot of interesting things and you always find something to invest in. If you’re working on a computer from home, whether it’s a pandemic or not, you might welcome an Edge Assistant. Every increase in productivity is useful.

Magnetic holder – That’s how easy it is

The Edge Assistant is simply a magnetic mobile phone holder that attaches to the back of the laptop screen. It is tiltable and after extending the arm to the vicinity of the display, you attach a mobile phone to it and simply enlarge the work surface. You will then see on your phone any things you find important for work – for example, company e-mail and will also be useful for conference calls.

Universal tool

The holder itself is only 4 millimeters thin, so the notebook fits in the bag comfortably with it and it is a very versatile thing. It can be connected to various extensions – for example, a charger or a light, thanks to which you will be lit as a TV moderator at company online meetings. Edge is compatible with all types of phones, so in addition to a laptop, you will be able to attach, for example, the ancient Nokia 3310.

If you do not have a model with wireless charging and therefore a coil that could be attached to the magnet, you will need to stick an external magnetic disk, which is included in the package, on your device. And even if there is a coil, it is likely that you will have to use this additional disk, because the clamping force will not be enough (of course, it also depends on the weight of the phone).

Wireless charging with an output of up to 15W

The charging adapter is connected to the base holder and then it must be connected to the USB connector. This charger is compatible with technology MagSafe from Apple, however, you can forget about 15W charging for apple phones. Maximem u iPhones 12 it is only 7.5 W.

This accessory could also be interesting for players / streamers, who will be able to stream using a phone mounted above the monitor, at the same time charge it and give their customers a quality scene with additional light.

Also read: Apple is also thinking about the competition. You can also charge Samsung with the MagSafe charger
