Posted on 2018-08-29 by Jennifer Taylor

PopSockets – whether or not you know what they are, we’re sure you’ve heard of this term before. These are the new trending tech promotional product. What are they and why should I use these as part of my promotional product giveaways?


What are PopSockets?

PopSockets are small, plastic round discs that have an adhesive that you stick to the back of your phone. They were created by David Barnett who made these marketing gems when he wanted a place to wrap his headphones to prevent them from tangling. His original prototype was two large discs with a small spacer between them. These discs can then can be expanded like an accordion. Its uses include being a phone grip (to take better selfies), as a stand, or even to wrap cords/headphones around it. They essentially help you become hands free to engage in other activities such as eating a cheeseburger, building a house of cards, or playing the violin.

PopSockets have taken the world by storm. People and celebrity alike have been using them and they’re popping up everywhere (no pun intended)! Some news sources have even labelled these as the new fidget spinners. These promos are popular with the millennials age group and relevant to their lifestyles.


How do PopSockets work?

As we described, you would attach it to the back of your phone or tablet. PopSockets are multi-functional tools as they can help with you’ve had twisted headphone wires or fail to balance your phone when taking a selfie or texting. They also help you when you want to find the perfect viewing angle for your tablet. They take up a minimal amount of space and are very portable.
