When you're at your desk, you get a chair. A nice chair, with armrests and lumbar support. And what does your trusty nic-stick sidekick get? It gets to lay there, among the paperclips, like it's a flippin' ball-point or something. This will not do.
This is a stand for e-cigarettes. It will hold devices from 14 to 28 mm in diameter. There is a 9.5 mm slot for a pass-through cord.
A note about this version: This was an attempt to lower the cost of the original Barcelona version. It contains about half as much material as that version. As it turns out, the removed material was all discounted, so the price didn't actually drop all that much. I think this version looks nicer, but it is more flexible. It doesn't feel fragile, but it feels a little springy (it's actually kind of nice). If you want a more solid feel, then I would recommend the original version.
