Mophie Debuts New MagSafe Car Vent Mounts

Mophie today launched two new MagSafe-compatible car vent mounts that are available on Mophie's website, on Apple.com, and in Apple stores around the world. One of the mounts supports wireless charging while the other is strictly for mounting your iPhone and does not directly charge.

Starting with the non-charging accessory, the Magnetic Vent Mount is $39.95 and holds the ‌iPhone‌ securely while preserving access to the Lightning port, so you can still charge your ‌iPhone‌ via cable. This device rotates and tilts allowing for ideal viewing angles, and it includes an adjustable offset arm so you can position the ‌iPhone‌ away from the vent.

Next is the Wireless Charging Vent Mount with MagSafe for $99.95, and it's the same design as the previous vent mount with the addition of 15W of wireless charging via MagSafe. It comes with a 20W USB-C car charger and 1.5M USB-C cable. You'll find all the same features as the non-charging mount, including an adjustable arm and secure hold.

If you purchase the new vent mounts on Mophie's website, you can save some money. Mophie is currently running a bundle and save sale, where you can get at least 30 percent off when buying two or more products at the same time. Just add the mounts to your cart (or any other compatible products on ZAGG's brand of websites), and you'll see the 30 percent off applied automatically.

On Apple.com, you can get the Magnetic Vent Mount for $39.95 and Wireless Charging Vent Mount with MagSafe for $99.95. Both delivery and in-store pick-up options are available.

I never could understand "vent" mounts. I don't want my a/c vents blocked. I live in a hot climate, but that's just me. If it works for you, GREAT but really $100?

The #1 issue with these is if you live in a cold climate and need to use the heat it will overheat and shut down your phone. Makes it completely useless for me 5-6 months a year.

99.9% of auto vents are made out of plastic, and the ends of the vent fins are only secured by a small plastic tab. This seems like a LOT of weight when including the iPhones (as they only seem to get larger year over year). I'd be afraid this and other car vent mounts would break the plastic vents over time. For $100, find a non-obtrusive mount that secures to the radio/nav frame under the trim somewhere. Kudos if it works for those who prefer them though...it is an easy "install".

Literally everyone here (besides the one poster above me who wrote that while I was typing my message) is ignorant of its arm extension feature that displaces it away from being directly in front of the vent and its heat.

“The wireless charging vent mount comes with an off-set extension arm that lets you lift or lower your iPhone above or below the vent. The arm rotates and pivots so that you can get the perfect viewing angle.”

Vents and vent mounts are already flimsy enough, and the arm extension just moves the load of the device to a worse position that will make it far less stable.

Not sure why these manufacturers are so intent on getting people to mount their phones in arguably the worst place in the car.
