We all know that it’s dangerous to talk on the phone while we’re driving, but we do it anyway because you can’t afford to lose touch with your contacts, friends or family when you’re on the road – and if you spend a lot of time driving long distances like I do, then this is especially true.
Nobody wants to be in a car accident, and nobody sees it happening to themselves in their lifetime, but it’s the truth that it accidents are a reality of life and that you can’t predict when, where or how they’re going to happen – I’ve seen a lot of accidents on the road in my career as a trucker and wondered to myself if using their phones while driving might have been at the cause of the accident.
And then I usually think about the fact that I don’t want to be the next casualty on the roads myself. I’ve even lost plenty of friends and colleagues in traffic accidents – and it could have been prevented.
A friend of mine recommended the aLLreLi Car Phone Holder to me after they’d just done a long-distance trip across two states – while they were on the phone driving back home!
I’d used a few types of car phone holders before, and all of them were lacking in some way. Some of them even ended up costing more money than they were worth – in damages, that is.
Many of them were the cheaper options, and these all turned out to be terrible quality – they didn’t last very long, and one of them even resulted in a broken screen when it detached itself from the front window of my truck and tumbled down to the floor.
Of course, when you’re buying a phone holder you want to make sure that it’s something that’ll hold your phone safely – if it messes up your phone in any way or causes damage when it falls, it means that a cheap $5 phone cover could cost you the price of an entirely new phone.
There are also many cheaper cellphone holders – the really cheap ones! – that aren’t even designed to hold the full weight of a phone. These usually won’t stick to the dash or window when a phone is inserted, and that’s also another kind of risk that you really shouldn’t want to take with your phone.
If you’ve ever bought a really cheap phone holder then you’ll also know that they usually don’t fit your phone even when they claim that it’s made for your phone’s model – or “will fit all phones.”
I was a little doubtful at first when my friend recommended the aLLreLi, and I’d almost gotten used to just using headphone jacks and holding the phone in an awkward position or putting it on top of the dash. But then he mentioned that he was using it right now – and had been using it for the entire cross-state trip.
Of course, I ordered one.
It took just under a week to arrive, and I immediately put it in my truck for the next trip.
The aLLreLi model was surprisingly easy to install in the first place – just popped it right in place. My wife and I tried it with several different phone types and it fit all of them with a little adjustment or two. There were no problems getting it to stay in one place, and we could even adjust the position of the phone if glare gets in the way.
It’s affordable rather than being cheap – and the exact same one I bought is still being used in my truck several months later. We’ve even bought a few extra ones and passed them around our company to ensure that our drivers are kept safe on the roads – a lot of accidents on the roads are caused by talking or texting while driving, and there has been a definite decrease in the number of accidents (even small ones) reported to our firm since we’ve recommended the product to everyone.
There was no need to fumble around with wires while driving, and until I had this thing I didn’t realize just how much of a difference it could make. It even makes it easier to listen to music on the road when it gets harder to stay awake during long trips before the next stop-over.
Just how much use can you get out of a little gadget like this?
It makes it easier to listen to music on the road or take a phone call, and it’s a much safer way to do it – truckers especially know just what carnage can happen on the roads because of just a few seconds of looking away from the road, so you can trust us when we tell you how important it is to keep your eyes on the road and stay safe.
