Just Mobile impressed us with a wide range of new accessories, continuing to use metal and other handsome materials. There are several new docks, along with updated Lightning cables and battery packs. The most impressive product we saw, however, was a brand new stylus.
AluPen Digital ($50), coming in March, seeks to accomplish what many more expensive styli have attempted. Instead of a wide rubber nub, it uses a fine-point tip, letting users draw and write with much greater accuracy. Instead of using Bluetooth like some competitors do, it simply relies on the electrical charge provided by a replaceable AAAA battery.
Featuring a classic Just Mobile aesthetic, Lounge Pro ($40) is a brushed aluminum puck with a pass-through for a Lightning cable, perfect for docking the iPhone 5 or 5s.
The dock will be compatible with handsets whether they’re in a case or not, one of the benefits of having the user provide his or her own cable.
For the iPhone 5c, Lounge Ice ($35) is one of the most fun products we’ve seen from Just Mobile. A color-matched spherical dock, it makes the phone look like a popsicle.
Like Lounge Pro, Lounge Ice requires a self-provided Lightning cable, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.
A version of Gum++ ($80), with the same 6000mAh capacity, now comes in the classic aluminum casing we’re used to, rather than the ridged plastic introduced last year.
Lounge Lite ($35) is the third dock from Just Mobile to need a separate Lightning cable. It features a nice aluminum and black plastic design.
For smaller hands, AluPen Twist S ($40) is a slightly narrower version of AluPen Twist L, which we covered right before CES.
AluCable Flat ($20-$25) takes the traditional AluCable design, but uses flat, tangle-free cables instead of round ones.
