Felix Unveils MonkeyOh, A Fanciful Charging Dock for iPhone

Power Meets Personality: MonkeyOh, a Versatile Charging Dock and Stand for the iPhone, Juices Up Your Device and Eliminates Cord Clutter
Whimsical and functional dock securely grips the iPhone in portrait or landscape orientation while plugged into electrical outlet

BOSTON – Felix, a mobile accessories maker, launches the MonkeyOh for iPhone on Kickstarter.  The unique and versatile charging dock and stand combines form and functionality into a fun package.  This fanciful stand doubles as a cord wrap when plugged into an electrical outlet which frees up counter space and eliminates messy wires.

“We [Felix] can’t stand cord clutter so we came up with a simple solution to that everyday problem- the MonkeyOh,” says Chris Michaud, CEO of Felix.  “We also wanted to create a product that has as much personality as functionality, and elicits a strong emotional response from consumers. So, we put all our accessories through a ‘smile test.’  You smile- it passes!”

Here’s how this clever dock works…Simply slide your Apple power adapter into MonkeyOh’s “backpack” slot, plug the USB end of the power cord into the monkey’s mouth and wrap the cord around the backpack.  The clever design instantly organizes your space by getting rid of tangled cords.  Finally, slide your smartphone into the flexible yet durable monkey arms for comfortable, hands-free multi-media viewing.  The MonkeyOh can accommodate the smartphone in portrait or landscape orientation.

Consumers can also use the MonkeyOh on their desk or bedside table as an iPhone stand.  The rubber non-skid bottom ensures that the dock won’t move which keeps your smartphone safe and secure.  With the MonkeyOh, users can easily Skype or video message, watch movies and much more.

Lightweight (< 0.2 ounces) and portable (3.5” x 3.5” x 3”), the MonkeyOh can be tossed into a briefcase or luggage for on-the-go use.  Developed from polycarbonate material, the stand is as tough as it is cute.  The MonkeyOh will be available in black or white.

For a full list of pledge options, please check out the MonkeyOh Kickstarter page.  The dock is expected to begin shipping in May.  It is compatible with all iPhone and iPod versions with or without a case.
