I know, how excited can you be for a under 30 dollar device??...... lol... let me tell you.
I was needing a charger for my car, besides the 'ol cable and let the phone slide around the passenger seat, or console while driving, system.I thought, why not go modern.....
I found this little gem while shopping. When it arrived, I found my car battery had died, and was disappointed that I could not hook it up in my car immediately. Also, I didn't realize I was going to need a quick charge car adapter to get the fast charging capability.
No worries, stand clear, I am an engineer.....
I used the USB ac adapter in my home to test for function. As an engineer, we don't read instructions.....
So, upon first power on, I liked the illumination of the charging status LEDs.
I jumped a little when the arms moved. lol... yea, If I would have read the instructions, I would have realized just how cool this thing really was.
It has an infra red sensor on the front of the charger base, and also a touch sensor on each side, about 3/4 down each side.
So, when you bring your phone close to the cradle, the arms open up, and will close automatically to hug your phone. It does not squeeze your phone, but just enough pressure to keep it in place. And yes, cringing, I turned the cradle upside down to see if my phone was going to fall out of the cradle. It was held very nicely in place, and did not fall out.
This kit is nice. It comes with a clip style, and also a 3m adhesive mount. I used the clip to mount it on my air vent. I had to find the sweet spot on the vent, to make this rock solid. because of the way air vents are made, there is some curvature in the blades. I can touch the screen, move icons, and do whatever I normally do with the screen, and the phone is stable. It does not wobble,or shift.
This is a very nice charger. The arms do not intrude on the phone screen at all. I have a LG V30, so, it is a good sized phone. The arms extended out beyond my phone, so, it will take a larger phone too.... lol... but not like a tablet though...
I wish I had found this earlier. I will be getting my wife one of these too.
If you pass this up, you will be very sorry for what you will be missing.
A well made device, is fun to own, for a very good price.
highly highly recommend. just get this.
