Here at Mous, we love testing. We test our phone cases by throwing them out of helicopters, we test our iPad cases by dropping them on a bed of nails, and we’ve tested ourselves by working from home for the last year and a half. In that time, we’ve also tested out what makes the ultimate desk set-up and we’re ready to share the results.
The ultimate desk set-up: the desk
The one feature that’s ubiquitous in all great desk set-ups is the desk itself. A good desk with space for all your tech is essential for the ultimate desk set-up. And while we always recommend protecting your tech with products like screen protectors, it’s just as important to protect your back with an ergonomically designed chair which is at the right height for you and your desk. Once you’ve got these basic building blocks, it’s time to think about what goes on the desk.
The ultimate desk set-up for your phone
Whatever you use your desk for, it’s so important to stay connected. Even the most traditional, gadget-less desk set-up needs space for a phone these days and there’s nothing worse than your phone battery dying right when you’re in the middle of something. That’s why we recommend a wireless charging pad for your ultimate desk set up. You won’t have to worry about fiddly cables as you keep your phone charged all day. To make the most of our wireless charging pads, invest in a Limitless 3.0 case to magnetically align the charging coil for optimised charging efficiency, and a high quality screen protector. That way if you knock your phone off your desk, your set up costs aren’t going up. If you’ve got an iPhone 12 series, try our MagSafe® compatible phone cases, Limitless 4.0 and Infinity, and use a MagSafe compatible charger dock to stop your charger sliding around the desk.
The ultimate desk set-up for work
Whether you use a laptop or desktop computer, your computer is most likely to be the centre point of your ultimate desk set-up. But there are so many more accessories that are vital if you’re going to be able to work effectively. When it comes to endless video calls and constant emails, the best way to keep on top of things is with the right tech accessories. Our wireless charger with stand is designed at the optimal 66 degree viewing angle so you can charge your phone and keep an eye on those notifications discreetly with your phone out of view. The handy cut-out at the back will keep your cables tidy and the tray at the bottom can store your other phone accessories while it’s charging. Functional and neat. We also have a MagSafe compatible charger stand so however up to date your tech is, you can stay up to date with your texts.
There’s nothing worse than not being able to hear that important meeting because of noisy construction out the window. That’s why for the ultimate desk set-up we recommend keeping your noise cancelling AirPods close to hand and getting an ultra-protective AirPods case. Our AirPods cases are lined with AiroShockTM, so you won’t need to worry about your AirPods getting damaged on your lunch break.
The ultimate desk set-up for play
But desks aren’t just for working. Whether you’re an artist, a gamer or just an avid online shopper, the ultimate desk set-up needs to work for play. The Mous iPad case is perfect because its four distinct standing angles will keep it at exactly the right elevation for whatever you use your desk for in your downtime. Leave it low for creating colourful masterpieces with help from your Apple Pencil, or position it more vertically for viewing content. And when you’re done, the minimalist design will ensure it's not obtrusive on your desk.
We would also highly recommend a magnetic card wallet. There’s no need to slow down your online shopping and with a magnetic modular card wallet, you know everything you need is close to hand whenever you need it. Then if you need to charge your phone, just slip it off and store it in the tray at the bottom of your charger stand. The ultimate desk set-up enables you to slide seamlessly between your needs.
The ultimate desk set-up ecosystem
The best way to set up your desk to cater to your needs all day long is to create a beautiful, minimalist ecosystem. It’s so much more pleasant being at a desk with an aesthetic that’s your own, and even better still when every item facilitates your day without getting in the way.
We Are Mous
Mous was born of an uninspiring marketplace and we were inspired to do better. We started making beautiful phone cases which could actually protect your phone. A few years and a few helicopter drops later, we’re making a wide range of tech accessories designed to elevate your tech and enable your lifestyle. Some of our products include magnetically optimised mounts, protective clear phone cases and durable cables and straps.
