The G-Force GF163 Mount for all iPads and other Tablets now connects to your tablet with the legendary Air Base instead of a Cradle. The G-Force GF163 Mount eliminates bulky mounting cradles and attaches directly to most Tablet PCs including Apple iPads (all sizes), Samsung Galaxy, ASUS, ACER, Kindle and more.
If your tablet PC has a smooth, non-porous case-back, you can dock it to this G-Force Mount.
During a static performance test, this forced-vacuum Air Base held 32.5-pounds. That’s equivalent to 22 iPads. During the same test, the G-Force Air Base withstood 22.6 Gs with a deflection range of 2-inches. That’s equal to a deceleration rate of 0.005 ft/sec2. And since the human body can withstand only near 12-Gs in deceleration, well…
But wait. That was a static, bench test. So, just to be sure, G-Force stuck the GF163 Mount and an iPad Mini to the canopy of an Aero Vodochody L-39 Albatros, a 400-knot military jet trainer -anything but static… Then, just to make things more relative, G-Force put the GF163 Mount and an iPad Mini in a Cessna P210, a 190-knot workhorse.
All of these tests were wildly successful.
What’s the big deal with the cradle? Why Choose This Mount instead?
- A cradle adds bulk to an already bulky device. That limits location and connection to the tablet.
- A cradle adds weight to an already heavy device, 50-100% of the tablet itself. Extra weight enables your tablet to swing at every bump. Nothing annoys like a swinging tablet when you’re trying to touch the touch screen.
- A cradle restricts ventilation. tablet PCs have no cooling fans. The whole backside is a radiator. And a mounting cradle impedes radiation. Some tablets shut down under excessive heat. You don’t want your tablet shutting down while you’re skirting that storm cell.
