Aventek send a “Magnetic Cell phone Car mount” for review. As always we are pleased to review new items.
The package contains;
– Car mount for use at car fan outlet
– metal plate (rectangle) to fit in battery compartment of the phone
– metal plate (circle) self-adhesive to put on the phone (if battery can’t be removed)
The installation of the Avantek car mount is easy. Just take it and put it at the desired location in the fan outlet of your car.
I tested the car mount in combination with the LG Nexus 5. A small issue was born, the battery of the phone can’t be removed so the metal plate could not be placed inside the battery compartment. But.. no fear I’m using the phone with a cover. Just put the metal plate in the cover and problem was solved.
Using the Avantek Magnetic Cell phone Car mount;
The use of the car mount is easy. After removing the protection tape on the car mount the phone has a robust connection.
This suprised me since the car mount is pretty small. Avantek did a real good job with this.
Even without a phone attached to the car mount it’s so small you won’t notice it as a car mount.
Small note to take care of.
When the phone is used with QI wireless charging like the Nexus 5 the metal plate like I used was intervering with the charger.
After replacing the plate with the self adhesive plate (I put it more at the top of the phone) this problem was solved.
