New arrival: PopSockets mobile phone grip-&-stand in Singapore

Popsockets launches officially in Singapore as its maker sets up regional HQ in Singapore while it expands in Asia-Pacific.

PopSockets: the mobile phone grip-and-stand which started off as an indie Kickstarter project in 2012 sold over 35 million units last year is now available here and in the region.

The multi-functional PopSocket Grip can be used to stabilise selfie shots, act as a kickstand for watching YouTube and can even be mounted on walls and cars for easy viewing.

For avid Harry Potter fans, especially those “from” the house of Slytherin, this is the PopSocket for you!

Double PopSocket Grips are good for competitive mobile gamers who want a solid grip on the base of their phone to put their twin thumbs into action.

“Reaching out to new customers in Asia-Pacific is a key strategy in our goal to double our global sales numbers this year. We chose Singapore to be our regional HQ for its pro-business and highly connected environment as well as for its central geographical location to be our nexus in the Asia-Pacific,” said David Barnett, founder and chief executive of PopSockets.

They can also be used to store untangled earphones by simply winding them over the two knobs.

Having started out of David’s garage, PopSockets has became a commercial success.

The company sold over 35 million PopSocket Grips and Mounts in 2017 and is on track to double that number to 70 million this year.

Fans include celebrities such as Kendall & Kylie Jenner, Fifth Harmony, Serena Williams, Gigi Hadid, Jared Leto and Michael Phelps.

Following its success in North America and Europe, PopSockets is expanding to Asia and has set up its regional office in Singapore to spearhead its push into Asia-Pacific.

With the launch here, over 100 different designs of the PopSocket Grip will now be available at retailers here including BHG, Harvey Norman Millenia Walk, iSTUDIO, Kinokuniya, Popular and TANGS Vivocity.

Here’s David Barnett (Founder, Managing Director), Mike De Bell (Chief Sales Officer), and Phillip Lee (GM & Managing Director, APAC) at the launch of PopSockets in Singapore.

In addition to various original designs, there are also licensed designs from well-known franchises such as the Justice League, Harry Potter and Marvel.

The new Car-Vent Mount lets users mount their phone to the air-conditioner vents of their vehicles.

Also available is the recently launched Crystals From Swarovski collection, with PopSockets producing only 3,000 pieces worldwide.

Already sold out in the States, this limited-edition collection comes with unique serial numbers and will be available in limited quantities here.

In May 2018, consumers here can also look forward to new PopSocket Grips with premium material including the Vegan Leather, Metallic Saffiano and Iridescent Snakeskin.
