Most tablets do not include pedestals. More is a pity: you are damn great. But given this absence and obsession with thin cases, we have to deal with stands and other tools to keep our tablets up without holding them. Here are the best.
Although the iPad is by far the most popular tablet, we have selected selected designs that are also suitable for most Android and Windows tablets. The desktop stand is best suited for those who need a normal hands-free kit. The hinge option is for those who need a more flexible and precise position. The kitchens stand offers a wall or cabinet mounting option, the mobile kickstand is for those who like to travel with their tablets, and the semipermanent option is for people whose tablets are more or less always in display mode.
We also have a dark horse pick especially for those with the later generation of Amazon tablets. Because it is really cool.
Best Desktop Stand: Stouch iPad Pro Tablet Holder Stand ($ 34)
Well, simply: something more than a document holder's evolution. This model by Stouch expands this idea with a robust gripper instead of a simple tablet that can be freely rotated like a good monitor stand.
It's flexible enough to accommodate even the largest iPad Pro model, and it does so thanks to an aluminum design that blends well with Apple hardware. The main arm has a hinge for adjusting the angle of view and a nice wide base to keep it stable. It's a little more expensive than similar designs, but the extra dollars are worth it.
Best articulated Stand: Suptek Long Arm ($ 24)
If you use your tablet stand on a counter or a standing desk, you need a little more reach. This Suptek stand features two articulated arms and a cable guide integrated into the base and lower looper, with both arm segments rotated 360 degrees, with the tray itself slightly changing from portrait to landscape.
This can range from a big phone to the handle of an oversized tablet. The flat base design is ideal for most users, but if you are looking for something semi-permanent, there is also an option for the desk mount.
Best Kitchen Stand: iKross 2-in-1 ($ 33)  iPad Stand, Tablet Stand, iPad Bracket, Wall Mount, Cabinet Mount, Kitchen, "width =" 1001 "height =" 1001 "src = "/pagespeed_static/1.JiBnMqyl6S.gif" onload = "pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this);" onerror = "this.onerror = null; pagespeed.lazyLoadImages.loadIfVisibleAndMaybeBeacon (this);" />
Cooks use tablets like for recipes and other quick cook information, but it is not ideal if you take valuable counter space.This iKross stand solves this problem: In addition to a standard display mode, it has a holder for inserting the feet in a bracket on a vertical wall or below
This keeps the tablet screen in front and in the middle and away from all your pots and pans. (Note that, as far as I know, neither the stand nor the holder is dishwasher safe.) If you have a few places where you want to mount your tablet, additional mounting plates are also available.
Best Mobile Stand: Anker Multi-Angle ($ 10)
This handy little anchor stand folds flat and fits easily in a bag or a large bag. It is ideal for use with aircraft seats, hotel bedside tables or other areas where you want to set up your tablet for easy reading or video viewing.
It's also surprisingly flexible: Although there's only one point for articulation, the stand can almost collapse flat without tipping over, even on the heaviest tablet models. Do not make long trips without one.
Best Semi-Permanent Option: Lynktec 360 Grip ($ 40)
If you use your tablet more or less as a handsfree speaker and rarely take it home or office, you might consider this alternative stand-alone solution. The Lynktec 360 Grip Stand uses a non-stick, sticky pad to attach a semi-permanent kickstand to the back of each flat tablet.
In addition to fixing in almost any angle and working on any flat-back tablet, turns for portrait or landscape mode, folds flat, and includes some handy notches for easy gripping. If you ever decide that you no longer need it, you can remove it completely.
Honorable Mention: Amazon Show Fashion Docks ($ 40-55)
The Cheap Kindle Fire Tablets are a hit on Amazon, as well as the Echo family of smart speakers. What if you could turn your Kindle Fire into an echo show? You can use a wireless charger with this first-party combination. Install the 8-inch or 10-inch Kindle Fire Tablet Enclosure on the tablet and place it on the stand. This turns the tablet into a voice-activated intelligent echo show speaker.
The case is also a wireless charging station. If you drop it, your Kindle Fire will be a Kindle Fire again. This is a great way to enhance the functionality of your Amazon equipment, especially if you've already invested in smart home hardware.
