fea­tures Mi­cro suc­tion cup-based pads, alu­minium body

This is a sim­ple idea that works sur­pris­ingly well. It’s a very well-made alu­minium iPad stand that holds your tablet us­ing a sticky pad.

But it’s not a chem­i­cal ad­he­sive – it uses mi­cro suc­tion cups to hold the smooth back of your iPad tight just us­ing physics, so it leaves no nasty residue af­ter­wards. Just press the iPad to the black pad (fairly firmly, but it doesn’t take much ef­fort) and it will stay right there – this means it works with any iPad, even the Pro. Get­ting your iPad off eas­ily re­quires learn­ing a bit of a tech­nique (pulling from one cor­ner first), but is no has­sle. It’s also got a pad on the stand’s base, keep­ing it firmly in one place on your desk (this takes a solid pull to dis­lodge, re­sult­ing in a pleas­ing/alarm­ing ring­ing sound). The stand can also lie with the main pad fac­ing down to hold the iPad in a flat­ter po­si­tion, for typ­ing and so on, again with the sticky area keep­ing it sta­ble. You will find that the pads be­come less sticky over time as they pick up dust, but a wipe with a wet cloth fixes that.

The Zand works well but won't leave sticky

marks on your iPad.
