Now that HomePod has been available for a little while, there are a good amount of third-parties who are shipping their accessories and products to enhance, protect, and further your HomePod experience. Let’s take a look at some the best HomePod accessories.
Whether you’re looking to protect your desk or other wood surface, take your HomePod on the go, or look for a stand or mount to make your HomePod stand out, there are some great options available.
It didn’t take long for users to discover that HomePod can leave white markings on certain wood finishes. Pad & Quill was the first to jump in and offer its leather HomePod coaster solution for $20, but there are a variety of choices on the market now.
One other option is to buy some traditional coasters, which are usually less expensive than something made specifically for HomePod. HomePod is 5.6-inches (142 mm) across. However, the silicone base is about 3.375-inches (about 86 mm) in diameter.
This set of silicone drink coasters, which measures in at a perfect 3.5-inches and should work great with HomePod, and they’re only $6 for a set of four!
White coasters are a bit trickier to come by, but these may do the trick. However, they’re not as good a fit as the 3.5-inch ones mentioned above.
- Pad & Quill Leather HomePod Coaster – $20
- PU Leather Coasters from $8
- HomePlate Coaster for HomePod – $11
- Silicon Drink/HomePod Coasters – $6
HomePod stands and mounts
Another simple mounting option is the HomeBase HomePod mount from H-Squared. Priced at $18, this may be the most affordable HomePod mount. It’s new enough that it doesn’t have any reviews just yet, but is made from “sturdy 14 GA Steel.”
- Grovemade HomePod Stand – $20-$50
- Meres Aluminum HomePod Stand – $40
- Meres Aluminum HomePod Mount – $50
- HomeBase HomePod Mount in black – $18
- HomeBase HomePod Mount in silver – $18
HomePod cases and covers
On the higher end, Capra Leather offers its HomePod Travel Case for a whopping $110. It features a padded bottom, cable management, a protective zipper strip, and handle up top.
- Hermitshell HomePod case – $20
- IVSO waterproof HomePod case – $19
- Capra Leather HomePod Travel Case – $109
Smörgåsbord & HomeKit accessories
One downside to the HomePod’s top surface is that it’s a fingerprint magnet. If you don’t have enough microfiber cloths around, you can pick up a 6-pack of the silk style for $9 or a 24-pack of the thicker, larger style for $10.
While HomePod puts a big focus on quality audio, one of its big strengths is being able to handle HomeKit commands. Here are some fun HomeKit accessories to pick up to enhance your HomePod and HomeKit experience.
