There's not much to the Airframe+, it's about as simple as phone mounts come.

Vent grip

On the back of the mount is a set of rubber grippers that hold fast to the louvers of most cars' vents.

Dual 2.4A USB ports

The DualTrip features two 2.4A USB fast-charging ports, more than enough juice to power two large phones or even an iPad.

Mounted phone

The Airframe's grip is wide enough to accommodate phones with screens of up to 6 inches.

Low profile

The minimalist design means that the cradle is barely there when the phone is in place.

B.Y.O.Cable

Kenu doesn't include a USB or Lightning cable with the combo; you'll have to bring your own.

Cable management

Even with a cord wrapped around it (and secured in the grippers), the Airframe+ Car Kit is extremely compact, making it ideal for drivers who move between multiple vehicles -- say, when renting ZipCars.

The Airframe+ Car Kit combo retails for $40. That's a $10 savings when compared to the individual components.
