I purchased it for my Kawasaki Z900. Wanted some product to be fail safe and to keep mobile unshakable during high speeds and long drives. So far it did good. Did 300KM drive till now with no major setback. Need to check how it performs above 200 km/h speed. till 150 km/h...unshakable... Charging is pretty good. Installation was very easy. I liked the mechanism to hold the mobile. It is not spring loaded 4 arms type as the ones available in other products in local markets...instead it has the bolt driven tightening mechanism which is more reliable and sturdy.
Since last couple of month, I have been looking for a quality USB mobile cum GPS holder for my newly purchased Dominar 400 and specially focused on the fast charging capabilities. Though I have received the product way back, I would not want to make any review until & unless being fully satisfied with it. Recently, I have make a trip and checked the product. I found the product fulfill all the parameters which are claimed by the seller. The metal body hold the phone tightly and look solid as far as the built is concern. On/off switch provides a choice to prevent the excess battery discharge while not in use. Apart from that, presence of a circuit fuse certainly put additional security to the device.The product performs exceptionally good. I strongly recommend this product to those who are looking for a quality product.
Best investment you will ever make if you have a smartphone. Don't risk losing your phone by buying a cheaper mobile grip and saving a few hundred bucks. I tested my OnePlus with Chevic claw grip on my Royal Enfield 500 cc at 100 kmph and I was surprised. The mobile did not move a millimetre. No vibration or shaking. I felt safe knowing that my mobile was in good grip.
You get an extra fuse, an L or hex key, plastic tags to tie the cable and extra plastic rings of two sizes as washers to hold the stand in place. Easy to install. You chose whether to connect the cable to battery or not. I haven't done as I don't need the charging as of now (it's summer). Charging on a hot day under open sun will most probably burn your phone.
Attached photos of installed setup.
Don't buy the cheaper ones. You spend thousands on phone and it deserves protection.
The holder came nicely packaged. The holder came with all the fitting adapters, allen key, spare fuse in a neat little cardbox box which was inside a protective plastic box. They even sent me a free Captain America keychain, which I'll give to my kid's. Always a nice touch to receive a free key ring, right?
It took me literally 5 minutes to fit this adapters and get in operational. I spent more time concealing the wiring.
I went for a test ride with my phone secured safely to my new Chevik Claw Grip Smartphone holder. I went over a speed hump pretty hard and the phone was going nowhere!
I'll need to get hold of a short micro USB charging cable, just to make the wiring look neat. Not an issue.
The claw grip also has a manual on/off switch so you can switch it off on shorter journeys.
My impressions of the guys at Chevik are that they genuinely care about their customers and they want to sell high quality products!
I'd recommend this product and Chevik as a company to do business with, with any reservations whatsoever!
This grab claw is a must have for any biker who's after high quality gear!
Just get one! Well done team Chevik, you've hit a 6'er out of the stadium with your product and customer service! Do keep it up!
I go for long rides a lot, once in a month for sure. I am a tech freak as well. This product Combined those two things and making my ride smarter. I use to use power banks before, but I guess now I don’t need one. Built quality is great, complete aluminium built. Holds my mobile so tight and doesn’t vibrate even at high speed and off road on my Enfield. Kudos to CheVik for building a great product. Completely worth it.
The holder doesnt vibrate on Duke 250 and is compact unlike other holders in the market. The components are well built . The ball-socket and charger is made of hard plastic, rest of it is metal(aluminium). It comes with 2 ring adapters for the bike's handle bar, 22 mm and 25.4 mm. The 25.4 mm one fits the ktm duke 250 handle bar perfectly. I lost the 25.4 mm ring(can be seen in the pics attached) as it got loose while driving and dropped. So ensure that you tighten the handle bar ring screw really really well. Seller (Chevik) was very responsive and kind enough to replace it free of charge.
Also comes with zip cable ties.
It holds one plus 5t with spigen case perfectly. Ensure that you tighten the grip screw like your life depends on it as the claw grip is the only mechanism holding your mobile. An additional rubber elastic gripper would have added to the peace of mind even though its probably not needed.
Charger does not dash charge or fast charge but on long trips it'll keep the battery charged.
Info specific to ktm duke 250: 1. To utilize the accessory plugs, you'll have to replace the out of the box connectors with spade connectors. I did it myself 2. When you use the accessory plug on duke 250, the mobile battery gets charged even when engine is off but bike's display is on... So that's that.
It’s an amazing product. I have only put on clamps on the handle and use the product whenever it’s necessary to avoid anyone to unscrew and steal the product. The fitting of phone on the product is perfect and sturdy. The product is directly connected to battery, however I have run the cable from battery to space behind the headlamp and have used a 2 pin male/female connector. When required one can remove the base product from the clamp and put it in whenever necessary.
The product seems to be very sturdy and rugged. The mobile is rigidly and safely held and there's absolutely no vibration of the phone during riding, at least on my Mahindra Mojo which has no handle vibrations. The service centre guys were concerned about the effectiveness of the claw grip and so they added a standard rubber pull-over strap that usually comes with an X grip. But that's really not necessary and I often ride without pulling it over the phone. The included charger works great too. Cons: the sliding part has developed a discoloration as seen in the photo. It's no longer black and is quite distinct from the rest of the device.
Ok, so I had given this product a lower rating earlier, since the charger component wasn't working correctly in the rains, unlike what was advertised in the description.
However, the customer service team at Chevik (Mr. Chetan) got in touch with me and was gracious enough to replace the product, despite the fact that the return window had expired on Amazon. I am happy to say that the replacement is working great, even in wet weather. I'll put the earlier faulty charger component to a single instance of a manufacturing defect.
The holder itself is Rock solid and you will not have any complaints regarding that.
Excellent product and most importantly, excellent customer service. Kudos to the guys @ Chevik!
