You can’t take them to Disney but they seem to be everywhere else. Selfie sticks. I think we’ve found the best and the best price in MPOW’s iStick.

Mpow gave me their iStick Selfie stick last month and I’ve used it with a number of phones big and small. On the small side, I’ve tried the Moto E and iPhone 4s without a case. But the stick expands so big that it can take small tablets like the Samsung Mega. It is strong enough to hold an iPhone 6 with a big battery case (see image, top). The fit is tight and it can be swung around pretty violently without losing its grip on your device.

More importantly, it is designed so that when the phone isn’t attached, it can flip around and fit in your pocket when the telescoping arm is closed (so maybe you CAN sneak it into Disney World!). This is the big differentiator.

The Bluetooth connectivity is easy to set up on both iOS and Android and it easily connects to multiple devices. Once connected, a thumb push on the button snaps a picture using the phone’s native camera or 3rd party camera app.

The iStick includes a wrist strap to help prevent droppage and has 3 different color microUSB charging ports if you want to differentiate.

The only downside? It is a selfie stick. Call it a Mono-pod if you can’t bear it.

Today only, Amazon’s Gold Box has the iStick for $13.99 Prime shipped which is such a good deal, you’ll want to buy one for everyone you know that wants to take selfies.

Not only is the selfie not going away, but thanks to the selfie stick, the trend is going to the next level.

Take a stroll around nearly any major city and you’re bound to see individuals and groups of people taking their pictures with iPhones affixed to poles. Just last weekend, I was at one of the biggest tourist spots in the world, Walt Disney World, and I couldn’t walk a few feet without bumping into one.

The idea of the selfie stick is to hold an iPhone further than your arms can reach to grab the perfect selfie angle. It’s also a good way to capture more scenery and people in each picture without having to hand your iPhone to a random person nearby. Aside from a few ridiculous exceptions, most of these monopods extend to around 3.5 feet.

You’ll find that the majority of selfie sticks are made by no-name companies out of China, so you’ll come across a lot of cheap options. Nicer models include a Bluetooth remote, while less expensive models connect via the headphone jack. One of these options is necessary to snap the shutter for the photo when you can’t touch the iPhone,

Here are the best selfie stick options for iPhone 6/Plus, and iPhone 5/5s/5c … expand full story
