We often tend to forget our device run on a finite battery, especially when we’re in a hurry to go somewhere. Often, I find myself without a phone during a long day out as I forget my charger way too often. Fortunately for me, ever since I bought a car charger, I have never had to deal with the same inconvenience. But it’s not just any car charger – it’s a charger and a phone mount into one! Thankfully, you can also do the same with one of the best smartphone car mounts with wireless charging.
To help you find the best car mount with wireless charging for your needs, we’ve reviewed several devices and provide you with a list of the top five of them.
This is our take on the five best smartphone car mounts with wireless charging:
1. Jialebi Car Charger Mount
Our personal number one choice would be no other than the Jialebi car charger mount. It is made out of sturdy and high-quality materials. It is one of the few car mounts that don’t shake as the car moves – a solid base for your phone. If you’re an owner of a device that supports fast wireless charging, then you would love the support for 5W, 7.5 W or 10 W charging. The sides are adjustable to pretty much any phone on the market – between 4 and 6.5 inches in size – and supports even thick phone cases. Removing the phone is seamless and can be done easily with one hand. Overall, a perfectly priced device for its quality and functionality.
2. Vanmass Car Charger Mount
Another great option for those with a smartphone that supports fast-charging is the Vanmass car charger mount. Just like the Jialebi one, it supports 5W, 7.5W, and 10W charging, although the car connection cable for 7.5W and above is not included with the package. You need your own QC 3.0 car adapter. Other than that, the device is pretty similar to the Jialebi car charger. It has slightly more flexibility, the ability to attach to the air vents, and feels more premium than the previous one. Moreover, it has a larger induction coil area and self-attaching side clamps that ensures your phone won’t wobble in and stop/start constantly charging under extreme conditions. That in mind – it is slightly more expensive than the Jialebi car charger mount, although it is well worth it due to its flexibility.
3. Zeehoo Car Charger Mount
I am personally that big of a fan of black, but I have friends that are, and they brought to my attention how ugly most car charger mounts look. That is why having the best charger does not mean only that it functions properly – it must fit your car environment and phone color. A great solution with support for charging with 5W, 7.5W and 10W is the Zeehoo car charger mount. Just like the previous two, this car mount feels sturdy and premium – made out of pure, high-quality materials. Alike the Vanmass, utilizing the device’s fast charging features would require you own a QC 3.0 car adapter. It has great flexibility while taking your phone off is very seamless. The device can be mounted for the air vent.
4. Squish Car Charger Mount
Another car charger mount with a black design and no less functionality is built by Squish. It’s side clamps do not cover the screen and close automatically, just like the Zeehoo and Vanmass mounts. Unlike them, though, installing the Squish one to your air vent is impossible. It supports 5W, 7.5W, and 10W wireless charging but, again, you will need your own QC 2.0 or 3.0 car power adapter to use the fast charging speeds. The device is not compatible with thick cases, UAG, and Otter-branded cases. The maximum case thickness that it can support is up to 0.29 inches, although if you’re unsure you can fit – the 30-day money back guarantee has got you covered.
5. iOttie Car Charger Mount
In case you’re not a lone wolf, or you just have more than one device, you might wanna have the ability to charge more than one phone at a time, and iOttie knows that. Their car charger mount supports not only wireless charging, but it also comes with a built-in micro-USB cable for charging a secondary mobile device with that type of charging port. Just like the Squish mount, this one cannot be mounted on the air vents. If your interior is made out of leather, it is recommended that you use the windshield for a better grip instead.
Overall, it doesn’t really matter much which device you choose, as all of them offer you what they’re built for – a car mount and wireless charging. The iOttie mount supports charging two mobile devices simultaneously, although one must be with a micro-USB port while the other has to support induction charging, essentially limiting your options. Squish’s case wins in terms of its minimalistic design and great build.
