The Spiderpodium is marketed as a universal, multi-purpose, gadget grip, holster, dock and display podium that is compatible with all compact handheld devices.  While unlikely to trigger arachnaphobia, with it’s 8 bendable segmented legs the black review unit certainly resembles a spider.  There are 8 different colours available (including the glow-in-the-dark camping version), so you can try a less typical spidery colour – but then some do look like the facehugger’s from Alien.



The Spiderpodium’s legs are easy to bend, but once positioned stay firmly in place.  It’s covered in a ‘SoftTouch’ rubber which is incredibly grippy and when attached securely had no problem holding on to any of my devices regardless of weight, materials or rigorous shaking.


Despite being lightweight, the Spiderpodium does inspire confidence that your device won’t take a fall.  However due to the nature of the product, your device will shake a little bit.  If you plan on using the touch-screen a lot then this may be an issue, but using it as a car dock didn’t shake any worse that my current car grip.



It’s difficult to say how the Spiderpodium will wear over time or how firmly it will grip after long-term use, but initial impressions found it’s materials to be of a high quality.


The Spiderpodium was initially targeted towards the iPhone, and some of the example configurations shown on the packaging won’t work with larger phones such as my S4.  It still provides a secure grip for the S4 (even with a case) and can even stretch to a 7″ tablet such as a Nexus 7, but won’t allow some of the configurations designed to facilitate easy fitting and removal.  A larger tablet version of the Spiderpodium is available which would likely solve this issue.


When you’re in a hurry, it’s fairly easy to quickly bend the legs to a shape that will accomplish what you need.  Given more time you can get a little more creative, getting the legs to line up nicely while taking pride in your artistic endeavour.  In certain configurations when using it as a dock, a handy hole in the centre of the Spiderpodium allows you to connect a power cord to the bottom of your phone.


At £14.95, the Spiderpodium is a relatively inexpensive accessory that would make an excellent stocking-filler for any gadget fan.  Even if you don’t have a specific use for it, it’s one of those items that can be used for a multitude of things and you’ll be glad to have it in your accessory arsenal when the need arises.
