Scosche today announced new Qi-compatible MagicMount Pro wireless charging accessories that are compatible with the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus.

All of the accessories in the new MagicMount Pro CHARGE line feature the Scosche's MagicMount magnetic mounting functionality, with a 360-degree adjustable cradle that allows them to be mounted in the most convenient position. The MagicMount is designed to mount in cars, on nightstands, on desks, on countertops, and more.

Scosche says the MagicMount Pro products feature 5W or 10W Adaptive Fast Charging for "the quickest charge possible" for all Qi-enabled smartphones. Apple's iPhones use 7.5W charging, however, and compatibility with the faster 7.5W iPhone charging specification is not explicitly mentioned.

There are several vehicle-compatible products in the MagicMount Pro CHARGE family:

  • MagicMount Pro CHARGE Window/Dash - Designed to stick to a vehicle's window or dash using a suction base.
  • MagicMount Pro CHARGE Vent - Attaches to the vent in any vehicle and can also be detached to be used as a kickstand to watch videos.
  • MagicMount Pro CHARGE CD - Mounts in a vehicle's CD slot.
  • MagicMount Pro CHARGE Surface - Attaches to a vehicle's console using a StickGrip mat.

Each MagicMount Pro product includes an AC wall adapter, a micro-USB charging cord, and two MagicPLATEs with 3M adhesive.

Scosche is also introducing a new Qi Dock Powerbank that's able to charge a Qi-compatible smartphone and a powerbank, which can then be used on-the-go to charge mobile devices.

In its standalone MagicMount series designed for mobile devices like the iPhone, Scosche is debuting new MagicMount ELITE products that combine it's well-known magnetic mounting functionality with a more attractive metal alloy finish. As with the Qi accessories, the ELITE series features several products to meet a range of needs.

Traditional magnetic mounts rely on a magnetic plate sandwiched beneath a case or utilizes a special case where the magnetics / metals are strategically located, embedded in the case to avoid the Qi coils. I wonder how these work without mentioning any special cases or metal plates?
Yeah I'm impressed; how does this work with magnets *and* Qi charging? Maybe Qi in the middle, and magnets on the perimeter? ...With a specific case on your phone with matching parts?
The press release mentions a magnetic plate that you attach to your phone. There are a few companies making something like this (Qi + magnetic dash mount) but the quality of these early manufacturers seems questionable. Instead of a full metal plate they are a big ring or a C shape so that the magnets are on the perimeter of the charging coils, or they offer cases embedded with small neodymium magnets. I have one from Nillkin that I got off Amazon which works well enough but it tends to generate a lot of heat so my iPhone X gets hot on long drives and slows way down.

I don't understand how it works. What does it magnetize to? Do you have to put some clunky magnet permanently on your iPhone?

I have a note 8 with wireless charging and don't even need the metal plates, the phones wireless charging coil is magnetically attracted to the mounting holder magnet and is secure. Don't need a case over the phone and sticks perfectly.
