L&Z Inc.’s Selfie Stick Professional 2-in-1 Bluetooth Monopod is as generic of a device as it gets. It comes packaged as just the pieces in what would typically be a plastic insert placed inside a slick outer box. There are no instructions either, which would be an obvious help for those who don’t typically know how to set up even relatively simple electronics like selfie sticks, or try to figure out how to make their camera, GoPro, or smartphone fit in one of the holders.
Now, with the above in mind, given the $13.99 retail price on Amazon, some of those oddities could be overlooked as long as the product works as intended. Fortunately, it does.
The Selfie Stick Professional 2-in-1 Bluetooth Monopod package consists of the selfie stick, a small device mount, a large device mount (for larger phones like my iPhone 6 Plus), a GoPro mount (unusual among selfie sticks), and a Micro-USB to USB cord for charging (any other similar cord can also be used for charging).
After my usual struggles with figuring out how to mount my iPhone 6 Plus on one of these things, I charged the stick for a few hours (since there’s no manual, I have no idea how long to charge for or how long the charge will last!). I then turned on the stick via the switch at the bottom of the device, causing its associated blue light to flash. I then went to the Bluetooth settings on my iPhone 6 Plus and paired it with “DSQX.” I was then able to use the shutter button on the stick to take my selfie once I extended the shaft to the desired length (it extends up to 39″).
So, while it’s clear this device barely passes muster in terms of packaging (and product information in general), it does in fact work like it’s supposed to. Paired with the aggressive pricing, it’s not hard to recommend the Selfie Stick Professional 2-in-1 Bluetooth for those in the market for one.
