ZeroChroma VarioGrip Kindle Fire Shell w/ Rotating Stand review
Your Kindle Fire is lightweight and easy to hold, but thanks to ZeroChroma no longer does it have to be limited to hand-held use. The VarioGrip is a hybrid back protector and tablet stand case that will enhance your device’s media function. The design rotates 360° between portrait and landscape positions and supports 11 different angles in each format for reading, watching movies, gaming, typing, surfing the net, etc.
Weighing in at only 3.1 ounces, the VarioGrip 360° Theater Stand is a smooth rubber tablet back protector with a rotating stand insert made of hard plastic. Created for the Kindle Fire, the rubber design wraps the backside and extends to cover a portion of the bezel, leaving open access to its buttons, audio-jack and USB port for easy use. This tablet stand case offers double function with table-mode and handle-mode, but I don’t recommend relying on the later because the stand is not very secure or comfortable to grip. Before operating the stand, the top of the disc (marked by the finger indentation) must be pointing toward the 12 o’clock position (marked by the ZeroChroma engraving), or else you won’t be able to enjoy full use of its intended design. The box advertises 14 angles, but starting from and including the flat position, I counted 11 total angles, which is certainly more than enough options to enhance your device’s usability. The ‘T’ shaped kickstand is attached to the disc by a hinge, and to release it, simply place your index finger in the indentation and pull-up. It works kind of like a zipper, while sliding it up and down I could hear and feel it lock into each angle position. The same was true when rotating the disc between landscape and portrait formats, it clicks and locks into place with each quarter turn. My device easily collapsed when positioned in the most acute angles, but I don’t think you’d have much use for them anyway. The most important angles work very well, and the rubber material helps to ensure the stand remains stable on even the most slick and shiniest of surfaces.
- Access to buttons, audio-jack and USB port
- 11 angles for both landscape/portrait formats
- Extremely lightweight design
ZeroChroma has created an easy-to-use tablet stand case. If this is exactly the type of case-style you are searching for, I think there are few other designs that can make you look past the VarioGrip 360 Degree Theater Stand
- Triple Function Case, lap modes, table modes and handle modes.
- 11-Angle Rotating Theater-Stand
- Anti-Slip Rubber Stand
- The slim, fold-flat stand hides itself within the case.
- Rubberized case body for a secure, relaxed hold, and drop protection.
