Should you’re somebody who spends loads of time in your automotive, having a great automotive telephone mount will be extremely handy. Lately, you will discover a wide range of automotive telephone mounts relying on the use case. As an illustration, some would possibly want a automotive telephone mount (aka a telephone automotive mount) for his or her dashboard, whereas others would possibly want a cupholder mount or a automotive vent mount. Some mounts have a sensor that robotically opens the arms if you place your telephone close to the mount. Others clamp manually or have a magnetic floor that requires a telephone or case with a magnetic factor. And a few magnetic mounts are absolutely suitable with Apple MagSafe wi-fi charging (as much as 15 watts), which suggests they have been licensed by Apple as a MagSafe accent.

Notice that simply because a mount provides wi-fi charging, that does not imply there are not any wires concerned — you may nonetheless want to attach the charger to your car, however you do not have to plug the charger in to your telephone every time to cost it. To get the quickest wired and wi-fi charging speeds out there for iPhones and Android smartphones, you may want an influence adapter that gives quick charging (most quick chargers have a USB-C connection and might ship at the very least 20 watts of energy). 

CNET specialists have examined and reviewed all of the merchandise on this listing in their very own vehicles. We replace this roundup periodically as new automotive telephone mounts are launched.

If you don’t need wi-fi charging or arms or a mount with arms that open robotically, iOttie’s tried and true Straightforward One Contact 5 is a strong mount for just below $25. You may choose up the first-gen model of the mount for $17, however this improved mannequin has a telescoping arm.  


Belkin’s Automotive Vent Mount Professional with MagSafe technically is not a charger. It is only a licensed MagSafe vent mount. Belkin additionally has a wi-fi charging model of this (it prices $40 with out the automotive charger, $60 with it), however you’d have to attach a cable to it anyway for charging. The benefit of a wi-fi model could be that not like with this vent mount, you would not must plug a cable into your telephone each time you wish to cost it. I’ve a USB-C-to-Lightning cable arrange within the automotive for quick charging, however I do not love the additional step of getting to plug within the cable every time I wish to cost the telephone.

I used the Scosche Magic Mount Professional 2 for a few weeks and it is received a robust magnet (I’ve an iPhone 14 Professional with a MagSafe case) and the swing-arm permits for some good flexibility so far as positioning your telephone goes. Notice that this is not a wi-fi automotive mount, so you may must plug a cable into your telephone. The primary benefit it has over different magnetic automotive mounts is the arm design. I exploit the car-vent choice however you possibly can mount it on a dashboard. Most individuals will use the air-vent choice, although.

I put in this telephone holder  in my automotive as a result of I did not wish to have something sticking up from my dashboard after I wasn’t utilizing the holder. It is received a clamshell design and also you simply open the highest lid and set your telephone inside. You can too prop your telephone up vertically if you need, however I primarily maintain my telephone sitting horizontally within the holder. The bottom swivels, which is good.

Belkin makes a MagSafe car-vent mount that prices round $40 (see above), in addition to the BoostCharge Professional ($100), which is Apple-certified and wirelessly fees iPhones at as much as 15 watts. And whereas this mannequin — the Belkin BoostCharge Magnetic Wi-fi Automotive Charger — solely fees iPhones at as much as 10 watts, it is extra inexpensive at round $60. Its USB-C cable is detachable (it is built-in on BoostCharge Professional) and also you get a 20-watt cigarette-lighter energy adapter. I personally like a automotive energy adapter with two USB-C ports so a passenger can plug in a cable and likewise cost his or her telephone, however you possibly can all the time choose so as to add that later. 


Should you’ve already received Apple’s MagSafe wi-fi charging puck, this Spigen mounting accent is an efficient choice for bringing it into your automotive. As I stated, the MagSafe wi-fi charger is not included. Neither is a USB-C cigarette lighter adapter. However at $18, it is a pretty inexpensive magnetic mounting accent.

Some folks like cup holder telephone mounts, however bear in mind that they’re going to take up house in one among your cup holders. Whereas it is fairly generic, the Tecknet is an efficient worth in case you’re searching for any such mount, which has a versatile gooseneck so you possibly can higher place your telephone for viewing. It additionally comes with a car-vent mount and has a one-touch launch mechanism. 


OK, so this is not a wi-fi charger, however loads of the wi-fi automotive chargers on this listing do not embody a cigarette-lighter energy adapter, so I believed I would throw this on the listing on the finish. I initially had an Aukey energy adapter on this listing, but it surely’s out of inventory and this low-profile Ainope mini quick USB Automotive Charger provides even sooner charging (up 24 watts) and prices much less. It has each a USB-C and USB-A port so you possibly can cost two units on the identical time, however to get 15-watt wi-fi charging you are going to be higher off charging one gadget.
