Carrying Stand, Adapter Holder


I’ve talked about the battery options last time. This time, thanks to Type U, we can have a glimpse of the two other accessories that the Vaio UX also come with: the carrying stand and the adapter holder.

The carrying stand is a small device that attaches to the back of the Vaio UX to make it stand on a table. There are two grooves on top of one end of the stand that would let you adjust the tilt angle of the device. It folds flat at the back when not in use. Sony also branded the stand with ’Sony’ and ’Vaio’ logos — a nice touch.

The adapter holder is literally what it says. It is a rubber molded contraption to hold the Vaio UX power adapter,  and the display/LAN adapter. Sony Clie devices that I own usually came with only tie wires and velcro thingies to tie the power adapter wires. Again, Sony branded the holder with ’Sony’ and ’Vaio’ logos Great touch again Sony.

See these two accessories in action after the jump.

    Carrying stand and adapter holder - Thanks for your great pictures.

    The UX17GP comes without any manual. Nor is there a pdx file on the restore CD that accompanies it. Considering the price tag, they should at least include some information with it.

    I spent some time yesterday trying to figure out how to use these two accessories and when I managed to work it out, I found the stand to be very effective and useful.

    The adapter holder serves its purpose but I would have preferred a sturdy, white linen pouch with the vaio logo on it.

    I really want one of these stands! It didn’t come with the UX 180 I bought.

    I found a program called oqoflip180 at By running this program it flips the display, so now you can turn the vaio ux series upside down and the connectors are on the top and you can actually now use it with a bluetooth keyboard. I have the program on my desktop, so when I double click the display is upside down. The program is not designed for the vaio ux series, so there are issues. First,when you use it, the display flips and an error appears. Just x the error window. Second, flipping back does not work. To get around this you need use the Sony program which comes with the UX to switch from landscage to portrait viewing, but in this case it flips it back to normal viewing. The program is very useful because right now I am typing with my bluetooth keyboard, the ux is upside down in the keyboard stand, I have the ac adapter plugged in at the top. Actually I have an external battery from battery geek model bg15-21-130 plugged in, which gives me more than 14 hours on a single charge. I also have a bluetooth mouse. After owning my UX380N for 4 weeks I have all the accessories to make it really functional. Below is the list

    External monitor and mouse, keyboard via docking station for heavy home use

    Bluetooth headphones for listening to music anywhere in the house from the ux

    For travel

    External battery for very long life. You do not have to worry about running out on a long trip, or in meeting room you do not have to sit next to an outlet
