Over the past 5 years, co-founder Dave Reeb and Brian Le Gette have launched dozens of products, including iPhone and iPad accessories sold in Apple stores worldwide, and now they are excited to launch their most important product line yet.
Designed to fit most popular smartphones (like iPhone, Galaxy S, Pixel, and others), Halo Effect reinvents your day from wake to sleep, using a series of mounts that allow you to be a better you. Whether you are an athlete, a parent, a student, an executive, a driver, an artist, or all of the above, this kit will empower your day.
Do you use a case for protection or style, or do you prefer to keep it thin and light? No worries. You can do both, or either, and even change your mind later. Three of the bases that come with your kit were designed to work with cases up with 2.5 mm in thickness. For example, if you have an Apple iPhone 7 with a leather Apple case, you will simply switch from the #3 base to the #4 base.
(Directions that will come with your kit.)
The bottom line: no smartphone mount system has ever had any three of these capabilities packaged together, and solutions that try to meet even half the functions of Halo Effect cost more.
Each kit comes with 6 bases to fit most major smartphones with a case or without (see chart)
The Play-Perform mount is the integral hub of the kit.
The first all-in-one smartphone kit
Halo Effect’s all-in-one kit provides mounts with four unique and fundamentally important functions—RUN+RIDE, DRIVE+DIRECT, PLAY+PERFORM, SHARE+STREAM.
A quick overview:
- Run+Ride — lightest & smallest, rotates 7 snaps-on/off upper & lower arm.
- Drive+Direct — secure, any-view, ultra-portable, any-view car vent mount.
- Play+Perform — most functional any-view,table-top, counter, and desk stand.
- Share+Stream — any-view smooth-surface multi-mount (for glass, walls, etc.)
Thanks to Halo Effect’s smart design, switching between each mode is seamless: just slide and clip when you’re on to your next activity.

It leaves no residue when removed, and can be easily replaced to reposition the mount somewhere else if you change your mind (we even provide a free second strip just in case).
Perfect for dual-screen video conferencing, keeping your phone away from kids’ sticky fingers, checking recipes while cooking, and more.
It fits like a glove – using 6 Swappable Bases
Have a case? Swap the base.
For the phones listed above, if you want to use a case, you can simply swap the base to fit whatever thin-walled case you like (with case wall thickness less than a 2.5mm ) – like the Apple case on an iPhone shown below.
Halo Effect is roughly 1/3 the cost!
This is was the most all-encompassing project yet, and their team has been working on it for well over a year. That may sound like a long time — maybe it is — but it went by fast. They had some false-starts, made dozens of unique prototypes, yelled at the sky a few times, and spent lots of hours in the lab and in the field testing and refining.
They grabbed some of the best ideas from their ZeroChroma roots (and the very capable brain of Brian’s business partner Dave), tweaked and optimized each one, and then combined them in a way that will transform your day. Even though it took plenty of roll-up-your-sleeves ingenuity, and hard work, They feel lucky to have had such a simple, seamless solution fall into place.
Although Brian and Dave have had the good fortune to work together on a few award-winning one-of-kind products, this kit was the most fun in recent memory. They hope your process of discovery matches theirs.
The process designing Halo Effect.
Dave and Brian are so thankful to each and every member of their team (both past and present) with a special thanks to Jeremy Carpenter, Teri Chrissomallis, Michele Dierking, Laura Siciliano, Steven Wright, Patrick Francisco, Nathan Li, Mike Woods and Hugh Smallwood.
With over 20 years of manufacturing and supply chain experience in Asia, Europe, Mexico and the U.S., they are picky and demanding. Their manufacturing partners GPA Global out of Shenzhen and UTS in Taipei City are simply the best. They make the complex look simple, and they do it on time and on spec.
