A plunger for your iPhone

Check it out, it’s an itty bitty plunger that can be used as a stand for your iPhone (or any other device with a slick surface). It’s called the iPlung and looks like a miniature toilet plunger, which might turn off some people. But I think it’s cute as a button. You can’t beat the price either at $5.99 from Perpetual Kid. Way cheaper than a bill from a plumber 😉

    Funny that you can use it to stand the iPhone Up. Would be cool if when you “plunge” it it can trigger a wireless reset of the device.

    I Love this. Good find.

    This is a great device.

    The iPad might be a bit too heavy for it, but I can think of lots more uses:

    Holding ceramic display dishes.

    Propping up mirrors in the bathroom.

    Holding up a Kindle for reading.

    Sticking in on the bathroom wall to hold backscrubbers, wash cloths, hair brushes.

    I’m sure there are loads of other non iPhone uses.

    A good friend of mine is a plumber. If he were an iPhone user, I think he would get a good chuckle out of this one. Come to think of it, I might just pick one up for him anyway! 🙂

    An ordinary bathroom suction hook will work as well, but this is alot cuter.
