The car mount from andobil makes a flawless impression on me - it comes with the anchoring element as well as 2 metal rings and brief instructions.
Assembly is very simple: You only have to put two parts of the bracket together: The clamp bracket: mount the holding plate on the ball joint. You can already screw the holder with the clamp to the ventilation grille of the car or to similar thin elements. It should NOT be about ventilation elements that are easy to move or fold down under weight.
Once the mount is placed in a stable position, you can use it immediately:
The iPhone with MagSafe (iPhone 12 series and higher) only has to be pushed onto the holder with the back in the middle and it is magnetically attached. it can still be rotated, but always remains centered on the magnet. It's very easy to detach by pulling down, but it's held up to the big, heavy iPhone 12 Pro Max on car rides so far. It doesn't seem absolutely safe to me, but the stop is okay. Also the Phone 12 Pro Max with a protective case that is MagSafe compatible has held up the iPhone well so far.
Devices without MagSafe:
The holder can also be used for cases or smartphones without MagSafe!
2 rings (black and white) are included. You can simply stick the magnetic rings on the back of a smartphone case or a smartphone. You can already attach it to the holder or it will be MagSafe compatible. Practically!
But you have to keep in mind: If you want to continue charging the devices via Qi, you should pay attention to the exact placement of the rings, then it should actually continue to work. Presumably Apple's MagSafe chargers with the magnetic attachment can then also be used or other MagSafe accessories.
For users of iPhones with MagSafe (from iPhone 12 series) a perfect holder WITHOUT charging function. The hold seems flawless to me, it's okay to attach it - the ventilation clamp bracket is more suitable for cars with more stable ventilation grilles.
Once the bracket is fixed, the iPhone is extremely easy to attach and detach. If you use protective cases, you should ideally use a MagSafe-compatible case
But there are also 2 rings for attaching iPhones and other devices without MagSafe - so you can easily make them MagSafe-compatible.
There are now a few alternatives - I also tested one from Wicked Chili and am very satisfied and will continue to use it for the passenger.
There are already some holders with a charging function: several already support the new iPhone's MagSafe. Practically. However, one should note that almost all of them do not bring the maximum charging power of 15 W with iPhones promised by Apple. As far as I know, only Apple's chargers and a few Belkin desktop chargers can do that.
But there are also mounts that use Apple's original MagSafe charger - you clip it into a mount. Disadvantage: Vl. not so strong magnetic hold in the car? I haven't tried it...
However, that would be the best solution as far as charging is concerned - because I suspect that no other charger can currently achieve the full charging capacity of Apple's charger - but again, assuming you have a suitable power supply unit.
If you are looking for maximum fast mobile charging via magnet attachment, you could wait and see, there will probably be more alternatives soon...
