Wireless Magnetic Phone Charger for Car

Search_wMy husband’s Samsung Edge had a really messed up charge jack because we usually use his phone as a navigation in a car and he gets phone calls a lot so he just connected and disconnected his phone all the time. So I figured maybe the wireless charger might be an option and my husband asked to order this one.

The main idea is that you put the charger on the went, plug it in and then mount  the phone on it. For the phone to stick you have to stick metal plates on it first. That didn’t really work – because of any bump on the road the phone would actually slide off, so this wasn’t really useful, we used it at home for some time though. But I gave a real wireless charger for my husband as a gift on Christmas and he uses that instead so this one just collects dust in a drawer now.

Ebay would get one just for the fact that the charger actually works. One of the biggest no no was that you have to stick something to your phone to make it work.

Phone Holder for Car

Search_wAfter my husband bought new Samsung Edge our old holder didn’t fit so he found this quite nice mount that fits most of similar sized phones. Its really good when we travel with car and need to use  navigation. My husband prefers the once which can be attached to the grid rather then the once that are placed on the window.

Item: the holder is made out of 3 main pieces – main holder with soft parts to put the phone in and button in the back to make sides squeeze the phone, to release you have to push the button on the side, the spring that is attached to the grid, the holder that keeps the main part stable and pressed against the wall near the grid.

20161018_202358It is really steady and holds the phone really tight. the soft parts keeps the phone from scratching. We used it a lot of times and t was a part of our travel bag for car for quite some time, but it takes a bit too much space – now my husband uses an alternative, smaller one.

Reality gets +1 only for the size, but Ebay gets +1 for stability, +1 soft parts, +1 easy to use and +1 for fits more than one size phone.

Car Charger with Bluetooth

Search_wIts forbidden (and really unsafe) to talk with a mobile phone when you drive. My husband decided to buy some handsoff equipment for that and as our car only can play audio CD’s something that could play music from USB could also be worth some time. So this item looked like a good solution and +2 charging ports looked like a good extra.

It was nice that guide was included. But for all its worth it doesn’t really work in any way. The sound quality of calls is horrible, other person doesn’t hear you at all. The sound quality of the music is also really low. Charging works more or less, but is too big for only that purpose.

Ebay gets a pity cookie for arriving. Reality gets +1 for low sound quality, +1 for arriving late, +1 for low bluetooth, +1 for not really working.
