We reviewed the Luxa2 H1 Holder not too long ago. This well-built device allows you mount and position your mobile phone to a more comfortable height and angle when wanting to view your favorite YouTube video or movies. But it is only useful when sitting on a solid surface like a table or desktop. But what about those that are on the go running around preforming errands? Well, there is the Luxa2 H5 Mobile Holder for that. <--break->

Luxa2 H5 Premium Car Mount Review
 

Introduction

We understand here at Pro-Clockers that there is more to tech stuff than just overclocking and reviewing hardware like processors, motherboards, cases and cooling that people want to read about. A large percentage of the population is going or already engaged into the mobile technology. I read somewhere that there are more people with a mobile device (phone, tablet or similar) than with a desktop PC. With such research, we find it necessary to bring you more details about them and their accessories.

A company that has been heavy into mobile technology and various accessories to suit them is Thermaltake. If you browse their website, you won’t find much there geared towards mobility, so you will have to click on the Luxa2 link which Thermaltake also own. Here you will find all the things that will make your life easier and smoother when dealing with small electronics.

Closer Look

The Luxa2 H5 holder is a small gadget that is designed to allow drivers of vehicles to have access to their mobile phones while in a car. Notice we said in the car and not driving a car. We do not condone actual driving and operating a mobile device like a phone at the same time. Back to the article, the Luxa2 H5 is designed to be mounted on the window shield or other windows using a suction cup to secure it.

The Luxa2 H5 holder is rather small and should not interfere with a driver if it is mounted on the front window. The measurements of the device is a mere 4.1” x 6.5” x 3.9” and it weighs less than unit. Luxa2 offers the H5 in three colors: red, silver and black.

The aluminum structure of the Luxa2 H5 makes it more durable and stable than the plastic alternative.

The precision hinge design of the mount can be adjusted in several ways to account for devices with 3.2” to 4.8”screens. It has the ability to adjust up to 360 degrees. This increases the viewing angle of the device to better suit the user. 

 

The ‘fingers’ and the back pad are layered with a rubber surface to keep your devices from slipping or falling from the unit.

The suction cup the H5 isn’t the type that you have to force against the surface of the window to get a seal. Simple placing the suction cup against the window with just a little bit of pressure and push in the lever and you are done.

Conclusion 

The Luxa2 H5 Mobile Holder is a great and handy device if you use your phone a lot while behind the wheel. With the H5 suctioned to the front windshield or other hard and smooth surface, one can stay on the phone without the need on your hand holding on to the device, a lifesaver for everyone on the road. I found it to be very handy when I use my phone for GPS navigation. With the both attached to the window, I can better hear the phone compared to when I just toss it into the passenger seat of the car. I find it to be a win-win solution.

You can't complain about the quality of the Luxa2 H5 as it is made of solid aluminum and the moving parts are of high quality. With such quality, we can honestly trust our expensive phones in it. One adjustment we found using the device opens a loose movement allowing for the phone to slide out or fall out. The swivel head made it possible to get the best viewing angle and we never had to remove the unit from its location on the window.

The Luxa2 H5 is less than $40 at most retailers. This is a small price to pay for something that is going to provide you a safer driving solution.
