Review: “BatRest” by Seskimo

Share:

Hey all!

You may notice that a few of my regular Sunday posts will be showing up during the week, well, that is because iPhoneFan is gone for the remainder of December.

Before we begin, congratulations to �Bud Colby� and �SSK13� for being the chosen winners of the Case-Mate cases!

Now on to today!

Today’s post will be a review of a product unlike any other that I have seen for iPhone 3G. It is called the �BatRest�!

�BatRest� by Seskimo

The �BatRest� from Seskimo is the most unique iPhone 3G accessory I have seen yet. It is a great blend of form and function and is very useful in almost all applications of the iPhone 3G. Essentially, the �BatRest� is a folding stand or dock that you can watch videos (or any other media) while in landscape mode. In other words, you lay your iPhone 3G on the �BatRest� in landscape format and use it to watch media on your iPhone!

What I find very attractive and useful about the �BatRest� is how small it is; it fits in your pocket because the whole stand folds for easy storage! It is curved in a way that it supports the iPhone 3G perfectly (or any other flat backed device!) You can put the �BatRest� and your iPhone 3G on practically any surface, whether be it a plane tray table, a desk at home, work, or school or wherever you enjoy watching and/or listening to media from your iPhone 3G. If you need to adjust the viewing angle, just open or close the arms!

The �BatRest� also comes in three different colors; Black, White, and Translucent. This is great as it matches the current iPhone 3G colors (Black/White) and then even adds an extra one for good looks! When I first saw the �BatRest�, I was very excited about using it, and so far, it has become an invaluable travel companion. You just put it into your pocket and go!

The �BatRest� is available for $3.99 USD on Seskimo�s Online Store. However, if you buy $5.00 or more, the shipping is FREE!

I really want you all to try this stand as it is quite a fantastic product. Therefore, I will be giving away three of the �BatRest� in each of the three colors to three lucky winners! (gotta love the Threes!). All you have to do is post below of how YOU will use the �BatRest�! The contest will end on Tuesday December 16, 2008 at 11:59pm PST.

Enjoy!

    First of all, thank you for the opportunity to win these awesome prizes!
    I would use the BatRest Stand for my alarm clock at night using those clock apps on the phone (now I won’t have to lean my iPhone against my lamp, hoping it doesn’t fall and break), as well as – like you said – plane trips. I travel a lot, and watching movies on the iPhone is really quite uncomfortable! Thanks again for the chance! YOU ROCK!

    Why I would like the batrest? To match my Batman theme of course! Of course, the bat-theme won’t be without The Dark Knight, as well as the wallpaper of my iPhone, and a UniqueSkins made to show the Batman Logo!

    How would I use the BatRest? Hmmm, on my desk at home, on my desk at work, on my night table as an alarm clock, on the tray table of planes, on the ferry, and let’s not forget the most obvious use for the BatRest… throwing at dangerous criminals.

    The black one would be the most intimidating one if you were going to use it to be a crime fighter.

    I’m a weapons tech for the Canadian Forces (Navy) and I’ll use mine to prop up my iPhone when I am fixing submarines, listening to music, which will keep it off of dirty surfaces.

    During my lunch hour, I would always use the lunch tray to support viewing on my iPhone but the iPhone would gradually slid down flat and I have to put it upright again and sadly this process would be repeated many times.

    So this BatRest will be the perfect solution. It’ll be even better if I win it!!!

    this is such a cool, yet simple & compact accessory. thanks for the review.

    I would use the Batrest next time I’m on a long Air Canada flight. that way when the crappy in-flight entertainment system crashes (again*), I can watch movies and video podcasts on my iPhone, without tiring out my arms for hours.

    * as it always does several times per flight.
    (Did you know? the entertainment system on AirCanada is Windows-based. seriously. not that there’s anything wrong with that. just sayin’)
