Ringo Water Bottle 13

REVIEW – When it comes to gadgets, I always prefer multi-purpose ones. I never really thought about my drink containers – until I saw the Ringo Tripod Bottle. I had to have it.

What is it?

The Ringo Tripod Bottle is a high-performance water bottle with a MagSafe lid that doubles as a tripod/phone holder.

What’s in the box?

  • Ringo Tripod Bottle
  • Ringo Magnetic Booser Ring

Design and features

The Ringo Bottle arrived in an attractive, easy-to-open box. As far as the bottle portion goes, it’s a pretty standard stainless steel bottle. The magic comes from the screw-on lid that features a hinged portion that contains magnets. The MagSafe-compatible ring securely holds MagSafe-compatible iPhones and tablets.

If you don’t have an iPhone, the Ringo Bottle comes with the Ringo Magnetic Booser Ring for non-MagSafe devices. This ring adheres to any device to provide a secure connection.

I was very excited to try out the Ringo Bottle. I had a few primary uses in mind. The Ringo excelled at all of them.

My primary use intention was for recording videos in tight spaces. In particular, instances where I need to have my hands in view with the phone between me and the object I’m recording. This worked great.

Recording videos in tight places is now so much easier!

Previously I would use either my large tripod with a long extension arm or a table-top tripod. Both of those presented problems in either keeping the tripod out of view or simply being in the way.

The Ringo Tripod Bottle has a minimal footprint and stays out of the way just about as much as is physically possible.

My second use is to hold my phone in my truck. I have not had much luck keeping phone mounts stuck to my dash, and there’s just not a good spot on the vents. The second cup holder in the center console is the perfect spot for the Ringo to hold my phone.

Ringo not only holds my phone nicely, but it also raises it up to a better level.

My other use was to simply hold my phone on my garage workbench, without fear of it getting a tool dropped on it or something spilled on it. Of course, the number of other applications is endless.

The Ringo Bottle holds your device in portrait or landscape orientations. With the full 90-degree hinge range and 360-degree rotation, it provides a great range of motion.

The top also doubles as a carry handle. Whether you want to carry it or clip it to a carabiner, this lid will do the trick.

What I like

  • Works just like it should
  • Strong magnets

What I’d change

  • Nothing I can think of

Final thoughts

The Ringo Tripod Bottle is not only a great bottle, but it also has solved several phone-holding problems that I was having. It sounds simple, and it is – simply wonderful! Whether in the office, in the garage, or at the beach, the Ringo Bottle will be with me to securly hold my phone.

  2. Clever dual purpose ring. Nice for vehicles that don’t have Apple Car Play (or Android equivalent). But I like drinking from my water bottle during long drives. Hmm
