    Clever holder but a little fragile

    I bought 3 of these gravity wireless chargers with a discount promo when buying my phone. The charger attaches firmly to a smooth surface and seems to charge quickly (though my experience is limited.) The side arms of the charger converge to hold the phone when the phone drops into the bottom arm of the charger. The charger has enough clearance for a slim case but barely holds my "rugged" case so you should check. I accidentally knocked the charger off my desk from about 3 feet and the spring loaded suction/sticky mount came apart. I was able to reassemble the charger and use it but I was surprised that it came apart so easily. It has an extra USB port at the plug is to charge another device which is a bonus! Includes a clamp to a car air vent you can use instead of the sticky base. You can attach the sticky base of the charger to a piece of unused tile as a base if you want to use it indoors.

    Works OK but definitely room for improvement

    I originally purchased it thinking it had a magnetic proximity charger but it does in fact have a cradle instead of a magnet which is kind of a pain because my iPhone 10 barely fits in it. I didn’t realize it but it also came with two separate amounts. A suction cup Dashboard mount and a vent mount. Out of the box the vent mount looked to be cheaply made and flimsy but turned out to be the exact opposite. Surprisingly strong and rigid. I’m not a big fan of the vent mounts because if you’re running the heater it makes your phone run hot or if you’re running AC it gets moisture. I just never thought it was a very good design. Overall I am pleased with it and I would happily give it a five star rating had it not been for me having to wrestle my iPhone in and out of it every time I use it. It should be re-designed to accommodate larger phones

    Great Wireless Charger

    I bought this wireless car charger because my phone was having technical issues where it wouldn't charge with a regular cord and I needed to charge while I was driving. I like that the device grabs my phone when I drop it in the holder and instantly starts charging it. I choose to use the vent clip and it stays in place very nicely. i have had no problems and it charges very nicely through my TPU case. A friend did try to charge their phone through their case and had a more difficult time but I don't have any issues with mine, so thicker cases may have more difficulty.

    My CD player is great and I use it a lot ! I am able to borrow great Movie CDs from my library, some new and some very old and I get to play them on my CD player and watch the movie on my new computer that I purchased at Best Buy ! Plus I borrow great music CDs and play them and can download them on my computer by using the great CD Player, then I can plug my phone in and have all the great music on my phone too ! Some are current and I even found some that came our and were great when I was in High School !! I would recommend this excellent CD player to everyone !

    This product does exactly what it says it does. It hooks to your car either on the air vents or through suctioning to your dash or window. In my case I wanted to put it on my air vents, but the clip didnt work for my Prius' vents and the material of my dash prevented me from suctioning it so it would have been nice to include a sticker like the one on the back of a pop socket. I was able to suction it to the window, but it's not preferable. The charging and the rest of the system work great.

    I had some high hopes for this one, as I embarked on my first mobile wireless charger. Not only is it bulky when used as the vent attachment, but its construction and overall quality feel very cheap. I rarely post, but felt compelled to get the word out on this one. It will get sent down to the minor leagues (aka trash can) and I will search out its worthy successor (probably something magnetic in nature)

    I purchased this item as a way to easily charge my phone while driving. The product was easy to install, you get the option to use either the included vent mount or the included dash mount. It is nice to be able to easily place your phone into a holder without having to plug a cable in for charging. Once you have the item set up, it's as easy as dropping your phone in to charge. It easily removes as well.

    Noisy and stopped charging

    I’ve been using my Bracketron holder on my dash for a couple months. The brackets on the sides of the phone are metal and make awful noise when a phone is not in the holder. Also after just 2/3 months, it is no longer charging. The additional outlet still works but the Qi charger isn’t working at all. Even when it did work, it was very slow and left my cell warm. Not a good product.

    Great value for inductive car charger

    Works well for an inductive car charger, especially for the price compared to other chargers sold in the store. The overall design comes up a bit short as it's a bit tricky to get the unit to stay secure with the vent mount attachment and I have to take off my very thin phone case so it will charge. Otherwise fairly happy with its function

    bought this charger for the wireless charging capability. charges flawlessly when I sit my phone on it. the only flaw is I have an otter box on my iPhone X and it doesn't hold it super good because the arms aren't big enough to wrap around. if you don't have a case or a smaller case it will probably fit way better.

    The quality is good and the mount is great. I returned it because it set my iPhone XS in an awkward position when mounted on the left of the driver side of my SUV. Wireless charging is great but I like to connect my phone to the car with a cable for music and the holder blocks the lightning connector. Glad I tried it and able to return it.

    This item worked as advertised, however it is somewhat flimsy and it doesn’t feel of the best quality. I ended up returning it for a store credit. There are much better options out there for the money. If your looking for a mount that is versitile then this is a good option if you can get past the flimsy feel of it.

    Not for Galaxy S10+

    I had purchased this charger by recommendation from a BB employee for my Galaxy S10+ and found out that the phone is too big to charge in the cradle. While it does fit, the length is too big to meet the charging spot between the cradle and the phone. Had to return. It might be good for other, smaller phones.

    I have only had this a short time but it seems to be a great product. The auction is really good, securing it to the windshield very snug. I have used it with both iPhone and Android phones and it works flawlessly. I like the extra built in USB port to allow me to charge another phone at the same time if needed.

    I don’t know what the dealer treated my dashboard with, but the sticky suction cup is useless. Should work on anybody else’s dash though. So I use the included vent clip. Charges the phone while using it for gps just fine. The brackets are a bit too tight for my iPhone X in its case. But I make it work.

      We would be happy to replace your charger for you. Have you tried placing the metal rails on the outside of your phone case? Depending on the thickness of the case, the metal rails could have a hard time connecting to the magnet. Please contact tech@bracketron.com, one of our representatives would be happy to help you.

    So in my 150 there is very little dash room for a self stick deal,,,,they always fall off. This one charges, and stays tuck to the dash in an area easy to reach. I don't have to plug or unplug the lightning port, very nice.

    Works great for iPhone 8. Had to slightly bend for my mophie battery pack and phone to fit but still works good. My dash is textured so the suction cup stopped working so I just screwed the mount to my dash so it will never go anywhere.

    We use this with a audio cord and it's nice to have the wireless charging hold the phone in a central location and answering calls is as easy as swiping the screen no need to fumble around and try to find it pulling on cords.

    I was surprised to find this holder/charger actually works great. I was able to stick the suction cup to my dash, without damaging it. I didn't expect the cheap model to work as well as the more expensive charger/holder, but it did.
