Introduction:

When it comes to computer gear, most people simply think of the actual computer and overlook some of the items that they may be using around their system. Designing products that are "Uniquely You", Luxa2 may be a new name, but it comes to us by a well known company. Luxa2 is a division of Thermaltake that was created in 2009 and manufactures products that are made with simplicity, luxury and a uniqueness for your lifestyle. Today, we are going to be taking a look at one of Luxa2's new products designed to make your mobile life a lot simpler and more luxurious. The H1-Touch is a mobile holder for the iPhone and the iPod Touch, though it can also be useful for any smartphones or large devices if you want to keep them safe and in easy reach while maintaining a sense of luxury in your space.

 

Closer Look:

The Luxa2 H1-Touch comes packaged in a tough box to protect the precious components inside during shipping and storage. The front of the packaging features a picture of the H1-Touch with an iPhone in the holder, the Luxa2 logo, and H1-Touch motto, "Smaller is Better". On the left side of the packaging is the Luxa2 slogan, "Unique to You", and its website address. On the reverse side are the simple instructions to view the included directions sheet in ten international languages.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just as with the outer packaging, the inner box protects the H1-Touch from damage while reducing the packaging waste, remaining "green" to the environment. All the packaging materials are recyclable to help reduce the waste to the environment. Included with the H1-Touch is the instruction and warranty information in different languages.

 

 

The H1-Touch is made of aluminum, which gives it the strength while only weighing a mere 200 grams. The dimensions are 152mm high, 93mm wide, and 102mm deep. The head swivels all the way around 360 degrees and rotates up and down 300 degrees. On the base of the H1-Touch is the Luxa2 logo, in the middle of two 3.1mm model S285 Swarovski Crystals, giving it the luxurious look you desire on your desk.

 

 

 

Now that we have the H1-Touch out of the packaging, let's take a closer look at its functionality.

Closer Look:

The H1-Touch uses precision engineering to provide a fluid and stable design with no noise in the movement. When adjusting the swivel or the angle, not once did the H1-Touch make any noise or grinding at all. The body of the holding head has a rubber-like coating to keep the devices secure so that they do not easily slip out of the grips. The six point grip is adjustable to allow an array of devices to be held in the grasp securely, allowing you to move the grips in different positions, keeping the device stable. The wide base of the H1-Touch gives the overall unit pure stability for large devices, such as the iPhone.

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Although made for the Apple iPhone and iTouch, the device works for any number of devices, as shown here with the LG enV Touch. The holder allows for multiple placement of the device and even holds it securly in the open position for viewing videos, listening to music, and more. The design of the H1-Touch makes charging and syncing devices a snap, while keeping your device clutter free and secure.
