Mpow Selfie Stick Tripod

Review

Mpow Selfie Stick offers one of the best values. Between $20-$30, it’s a 3-in-1 Bluetooth selfie stick equipped with a built-in fill light to assist you in low-light settings. It also has strong aluminum tripod legs and a sturdy telescopic arm that can reach as far as 37.4 inches. Include your beautiful background in your selfies. No more asking strangers to take your pictures!

Slide-in/out your wireless remote from the handle slot and start taking snaps from a distance. Release the tripod legs and shift its lock to the left, and you have a stable tripod mount.

The wireless remote is missing zoom in/out buttons. So if you want to change your frame, you still need to do it manually. Or have a look at the Fugetek 49” Selfie Stick. Its wireless clicker has the zoom in/out buttons (works with Android devices only).

Unlike usual cheap 2-in-1s, Mpow Selfie Stick boasts hefty construction. It won’t give up after your first five uses as your entry-level Bluetooth selfie sticks would.

Then again, products like the Fugetek 51” Selfie Stick have a solid frame for almost the same cost. The catch? It’s not so portable at 19 inches when folded.

Mpow Selfie Stick has a gloss-finished plastic handle. If you’re not a big fan of padded handles, this Bluetooth selfie stick will do ok. Other than comfort seekers who want a stable grip which you’ll find in Quik Pod Selfie Stick. The padded handle feature is typical for heavier Bluetooth selfie sticks. It helps counter their weight.

Mpow Selfie Stick hits the sweet spot. A package of sturdy monopod/tripod, compactness, and lightweight. There’s also the perk of fill light on a phone holder with 360-degree rotation. You can’t go wrong choosing Mpow Selfie Stick.

Comfort

Weighing only 8 ounces, Mpow Selfie Stick is one of the best selfie sticks in the lightweight department. The plastic handle is bare, with no rubber or foam coating. So if a comfy grip is your main priority, there are other cheaper options with better handles.

You’ll see this snug handle feels in Bluetooth selfie sticks, like in the rubberized shaft of Fugetek 49” Selfie Stick and Quik Pod Sport Selfie Stick. But this feature is also countered by their heavy build.

You rarely come across a very compact Bluetooth selfie stick offering a premium grip. You’ll see the same trouble at Yoozon Selfie Stick and SUDO Selfie Stick. Though, considering the price of these 2-in-1 Bluetooth selfie sticks (under $14), it’s understandable.

As for Mpow Selfie Stick, its plastic handle is just proper for its weight. But if your palms are sweaty most of the time, check out padded Bluetooth selfie sticks.

Portability

Taking up only 6.7 inches of space, you can fit your Mpow Selfie Stick inside your medium-sized pouch or on that free space inside your backpack’s front pocket. This compactness is an edge usually seen on entry-level Bluetooth selfie sticks. But most of the time, they’re the weakest type.

But Mpow Selfie Stick managed to incorporate portability without sacrificing quality.

With built-in tripod legs embedded in the handle as well. It’s sturdy enough to withstand shakes and a little ruggedness that you can’t expect from the cheapest 2-in-1s like SUDO Selfie Stick and Yoozon Selfie Stick.

No need to carry heavy Bluetooth selfie sticks like Mighty Selfie Stick to capture clear pictures on a tripod. But for all photography lovers out there, all the troubles of attaching tripod legs and carrying a bulky Bluetooth selfie stick will pay you off with some of the best shots you’ll ever capture.

Ease of use

Like your typical Bluetooth selfie sticks, Mpow Selfie Stick is easy to use. You can snatch it from your pocket, mount your phone, and you’re ready for your binge photo ops. You have the capture button within your fingertips with the help of a wireless remote.

Whether you need Mpow Selfie Stick as a monopod or a tripod, its straight-up fold-unfold process will save you time.

It’s a perk that other Bluetooth selfie sticks like Yoozon Selfie Stick lack. You have to be careful with every turn you make to unfold it. Otherwise, you risk breaking its joints/hinges.

Mounting your device might need a bit of effort since its phone holder is too tight. Mpow Selfie Stick also has one thing that most Bluetooth selfie sticks don’t have. A rechargeable fill light. You can choose from three levels of brightness to help you in low-light situations. The phone holder’s 360-degree rotation aids you in capturing unique POVs.

Mpow Selfie Stick’s tiny wireless remote is easy to hide while you take snaps via its tripod. A chunky Bluetooth clicker like Fugetek 49” Selfie Stick’s can be too obvious in pictures. But it’s a factor to consider if you have trouble keeping hold of little things. Besides, it has zoom in/out buttons to save you more time and effort.

Using its tripod option, it almost has the same instant tripod you’d get from Fugetek 51” Selfie Stick. For more or less the same price. Release its tripod legs from the sides of the handle and shift the lock to the left to secure. Although, it’s heavy at 16.8 ounces and lacks compactness at 19 inches when collapsed.

In general, Mpow Selfie Stick is one of the best selfie sticks you’ll find. Bonus, no intricate and time-consuming setups are needed.

Durability

With an aluminum build, Mpow Selfie Stick can withstand a continuous period of usage. It can hold out any device, even a small camera like a GoPro. Mpow Selfie Stick also has an ABS plastic handle, thicker than Bluetooth selfie sticks under $15.

But if you attach a heavy DSLR camera, the telescopic arm tends to flex a little. Remember that it doesn’t have additional support for each section of the telescopic arm like what you’ll see in Fugetek 49” Selfie Stick and Manfrotto VR Selfie Stick.

There are also salt-proof Bluetooth selfie sticks like Quik Pod Selfie Stick and DigiPower TP-QPXT Quikpod Extreme Selfie Stick that you can take even on your underwater adventures. But of course, they’re at least five bucks pricier than Mpow Selfie Stick.

Mpow Selfie Stick can keep up with your daily and travel demands. Unless you’re a vagabond always on the run, then opt for pricier but high-grade Bluetooth selfie sticks.

Compatibility / Connectivity

You can use Mpow Selfie Stick on devices between 1.9 and 3.0 inches wide. You can pair it up with iPhone units X, XS, XS Max, XR, 8, and 8 Plus.

It’s also compatible with Samsung Note 9, S9, S9+, S8, S8+, Nokia Lumia 720, 829, 1520, and most other iOS and Android devices.

You’ll also find a screw at the base of the phone holder where you can attach your GoPro mount.

The wireless remote can connect to any device inside its 10-meter radius via Bluetooth. If you’re using a Huawei mobile device, remember to reset your volume buttons to zoom in/out. Otherwise, once you hit the wireless capture button, your phone will take multiple shots.

If you want to ensure that you won’t have any problem with compatibility, a wired selfie stick will come in handy. Take a peek at Anker Wired Selfie Stick. Plus, no battery is needed! Just plug it into your phone’s headset slot, and you’re ready.

Price/Quality Ratio

At $24.59, Mpow Selfie Stick is a good bang for your buck. Bear in mind that it’s got a rechargeable fill-light. Its tripod legs are not some cheap plastic material. They’re made of aluminum as well.

You might see a premium and solid build in Fugetek 51” Selfie Stick for almost the same price. But you need to note down that it doesn’t offer the same portability, and there’s no fill light included. Unless your primary concern is durability, Fugetek 51” Selfie Stick would be a better choice.

What’s the bottom line?

Mpow Selfie Stick is not the best selfie stick in the market. But within its price range, it’s got an edge over other competitors. Its built-in rechargeable fill-light.

No, it doesn’t have a high-end feel on its handle. No, its telescopic arm isn’t the sturdiest. But Mpow Selfie Stick’s construction is of a high-quality build.

You can rest assured to use it without the problems you’ll find in cheaper Bluetooth selfie sticks.

Maybe you’re addicted to selfies. Perhaps you want a reliable Bluetooth selfie stick for your nature-inspired portraits. Mpow Selfie Stick is a good fit for you.

Still, remember that it’s not for sports activities. So no, you can’t take it to your trail running session this weekend.

For your action-packed footage, we recommend that you check Manfrotto VR Selfie Stick. It’s got an aluminum steel frame. With three clamp locks on the telescopic arm and a padded handle. But here’s the kicker. It’s an invisible selfie stick. Meaning, you can take your videos without the telescopic arm on the way (way too expensive at $54.99 though)!

Do you plan to use a Bluetooth selfie stick for indoor vlogs, online classes, or virtual meetings? Mpow Selfie will be a convenient option.

Its built-in fill light eliminates your need to spend more bucks on a ring light.

Get Mpow Selfie Stick for a good quality product without breaking the bank.
