Motivation and Choice
Recently I spoke here in Skooter Blog on the Universal cell phone car holder air vent. It has its advantages, How to stay out of the field of view of the windshield and be less visible for bad elements, that's what else exists on the streets of Brazil. But it also has disadvantages, How to get in the way of the air outlet, run the risk of breaking the fins and does not serve in any model of car.
The Universal Car Phone holder Adjustable Cobao is another model of support, totally different. He's the type who gets trapped by suction cup to the windshield, compatible with most models of cars and more appropriate depending on the occasion. I researched the many models of this type available in AliExpress and that the Cobao It seemed to me one of the best. I decided to purchase it.
The purchase was made on AliExpress, the store Cobao Flagship Store. The freight Aliexpress Standard Shipping came out initially with the code LP + 15 digits, that is traceable only in specific systems, and followed it to Sweden. Arriving in Sweden, to my pleasant surprise, He won a label LB + 9 digits + SE.
As I have mentioned in other articles, packages with tracking starting in L are coming in way less time consuming (“fast” and “Post office” in the same sentence doesn't fit), Unlike that has tracing starting R, It has taken me until 6 months to come. Apparently this is a lousy strategy post office to force the Chinese to use more expensive freight costs and try to save them from inevitable bankruptcy for incompetence, that still was not only because it is a State and we are paid the prejudice.
Even though a package with tracking started in L, It took almost 2 months to come, having stayed more than a month in limbo between Curitiba and Indaiatuba with the status “Object has not yet come to the unit.”, that is the new “Not located in the postal stream”, and it means that they don't have a clue where the package is or if a day will come. In civilization, even a package starting in R is delivered in two weeks without any major problems. In Brazil, Lula is likely to come out of Curitiba before even my packages that arrived there in December.
For these and other several international shops have already left to send to Brazil, and others are playing and freight prices up there in order to compensate for the higher cost and losses.
Unboxing and Tests
The Universal Car Phone holder Adjustable Cobao came in a simple plastic packing, in an envelope, but in one piece.
The black plastic part and the part is grey rubber, so the phone is well settled in it, without running the risk of scratching and without beating. There are also options with yellow or blue rubber, for those who may prefer. A thread on the back lets you rotate the bracket toward shaft in all directions, and then crashes it in ideal position.
The phone gets stuck on the bottom and on the sides, arms that close on it, so that he doesn't fall. On the underside there is room to fit the cable and uses it while it is charging, smooth. A button on the back releases the locking arms, to get the cell phone support.
The suction cup is firmly and all my tests, don't loose any time. The stem is too tight, so that the phone does not start waving both, as was the case in the Universal support p / car 1325 p/ celular GPS PDA iPod da Leadership, I had previously.

I was quite pleased with the Universal Car Phone holder Adjustable Cobao. He is better than I expected, being more firmly that the Universal support p / car 1325 p/ celular GPS PDA iPod da Leadership, It was the first model with suction cup and stem that I had, and swayed enough.
Put and take the cell phone support is also very practical and faster than Universal cell phone car holder air vent, assuming that the support is already fixed on the windscreen. I'd rather keep it always set to avoid fouling the suction cup and losing grip, In addition to muck less the windshield.
Although the Universal Car Phone holder Adjustable Cobao cover a bit the line of sight of the windshield, I still prefer this kind of support. Have a support of each model is a way to aggregate the best of both worlds. In places less unsafe (There is no safe place in Brazil) I can use the rod support. In most dangerous sites I can use the air output support.
I don't know if the Cobao actually manufactures this support or and is just another one of those Chinese brands that puts your brand in common products, unknown manufacturers, without much discretion. But at least this seems to be a quality product.
