If you want to use your iPhone while you drive, it’s best to go hands-free with a mount. Zagg subsidiary Mophie rolled out two choices Monday, a MagSafe-compatible magnetic vent mount and a MagSafe-certified wireless charging vent mount.
“The magnetic and wireless charging vent mounts from mophie are each designed to enhance the driving experience,” said Brad Bell, senior vice president of global marketing at ZAGG. “No matter the use case, mophie helps connected drivers keep their iPhone secure and in line-of-sight.”
Mophie magnetic vent mount and wireless charging vent mount with MagSafe
Here’s how Mophie describes the two vent mounts:
Magnetic vent mount ($39.95) – The magnetic vent mount (non-charging) holds iPhone securely and preserves access to the Lightning port. The magnetic vent mount rotates and tilts so you can get the perfect viewing angle, and the optional extension arm holds iPhone above or below the vent.
Wireless charging vent mount with MagSafe ($99.95) – The wireless charging vent mount is a must-have for daily commuters. The Made with MagSafe wireless charger provides a secure hold and perfect alignment for iPhone in your chosen line of vision without obstructing your view of the road or your vehicle’s control center. The optional offset extension arm also holds iPhone above or below the vent. Get up to 15W of wireless power, the fastest wireless charging speed possible, with the included USB-C 20W car charger. It’s easy to install, right out of the box, so you have everything you need to charge wirelessly.
Either mount will work with any MagSafe-enabled iPhone (iPhone 12 and newer), snapping securely into place for hands-free use. The magnets mean no clip is necessary to attach the mount to the vent, so nothing gets in the way of your iPhone’s Lightning port, the company said.
Mophie designed both mounts to attach by hook to an air conditioning vent. You can adjust the hook from 8mm to 30mm to almost any car vent, Mophie said.
The mounts come with an extension arm that lets you position your iPhone above or below the vent. A ball-and-joint design pivots to help you get a good viewing angle.
An adhesive cable-management clip helps keep cables out of your way while you drive.
