    Love the product and it shows great potential with the wireless charging. There's only 1 reason I put this at 4 stars and you can read why below. I'll start off with the great parts. Great: 1. When placing the phone in, it depresses the button on the back and snaps the grips tightly around the phone. Nothing to be worried about for the phone falling off. 2. You can use it as a dash mount or window mount both options work great. I was going to use it as a window mount. The sticky surface on the suction area is VERY sticky. Trust me, it took some effort to get it off the window and yet did not leave any residue. It does an amazing job staying in place as there's very little movement when driving down the road. 3. The ability to charge by just setting the phone in place is an awesome concept. Whoever thought of wireless charging is a genius! Not so good: Number 3 leads me to the downside of this and why I had to bring it down to 4 stars. If you're like anyone with a fear of dropping and breaking your recently purchased $1000 phone, you have a phone protector on it. This is where the dilemma comes in. The phone won't charge with a protective case on. As soon as I removed the case, it charged beautifully! For someone who takes long road trips for work or vacation, this would be a great option. For the common person who goes to and from work, grocery shopping, taking kids to and from sports, etc. not so great. You would have to remove your phone cover in order to put it on the holder to charge, then put your cover back on when you get out of the car. Now this may work with other phone covers, but my wife and I both have Otterbox. Mine is the defender series, hers is the commuter series. Neither one lets the phone charge. So again, great product, but if you plan on putting a phone cover, test it out soon before you can't return it.

    I purchased the Easy One Touch 4 tonight. I have to say that so far I love it. It is a lot more sturdy than another leading phone holder that I had from the suction cup to the arm to the head piece. The one touch release and one touch capture of the phone makes placing and removing the phone very easy. I mounted it to my windshield and the arm extends out far enough from the dash that it doesn't hit my dash when I rotate the head piece. Now for the wireless charging feature. I have a Galaxy S 8+ in a case with a kickstand ( the Case-Mate Tough Stand Case). I have had many issues with wireless charging because of the metal kickstand on the back (at the bottom). I can't even use the Samsung wireless charging pad, I had to buy a Mophie wireless charging pad in order to have wireless charging at home. This iOttie has a wireless charging feature that actually works, provided you are patient. First, I had to lower the the bottom guard on the head of the holder to the lowest position. Then I have to make sure to push the phone securely against the back of the head piece starting with the bottom of the phone first. That way, the bottom is tight against the holder before the top of the phone pushes the button to close the arms. Also, the provided USB cable and power plug need to be used, unless you have a power converter with a wall plug usb adapter. My car has a usb plug in it, but it does not work well enough to power the phone holder. It kept turning off and on the charging. But using the provided power adapter with the provided usb cord, the wireless charging works flawlessly. I haven't been able to determine if it actually does the claimed fast charging, but in the 10 minute ride from Best Buy to my house, my phone went from 46% to 51%. Overall, this is the best phone holder/charger that I have found.

    Works Great

    I bought this for my wife for her birthday back in December 2017. Adjusted the feet all the way down so the back of the phone was centered in the holder as it states in the instructions. The coil has to be centered to where the battery is in your phone or it won't work right. Connected the micro USB cable and the adapter that came with the IOTTI 4 and it's worked flawlessly ever since. The suction cup is as good as it's predecessors and hasn't come loose since it was set up. She loves it and says it just works. I just bought one for my car. Note to those who had problems; You can't just connect it to any power adapter or use just any cable if your phone supports wireless fast charge / quick charge like most Samsung phones made recently. You have to buy an adapter with an output of 9V, 1.7A or higher, and a cable that states it supports fast charge like the one that comes with the IOTTI wireless charger. It also won't work plugged into most USB ports built into most cars today as they only supply 5V and 1A. It's just not enough to charge these newer phones and that's why your draining your battery or not charging. All the bad reviews on here sound like people that have used the wrong adapter / cable or have not adjusted the height of the feet to center the charging coils to their phones. The coils seem to be around the center button that you depress to lock your phone into the holder or just below it. For larger phones like the S8, S8+, or Note 8, adjust the feet all the way down. Hope that helps others that have had problems.

    Over all functionality of this phone mount is a 5/5 however the cheap plasticky feel of it leaves something to be desired at $54.00. The spring loaded arms that have a quick release work well and make securing your phone into the mount an easy task. However, the bottom adjustable bracket that supports your phone is kinda flimsy and not well made although still seems to he sturdy. It just felt kind of like an after thought piece to the rest of the mount despite its importance. The power cable is the perfect length. Just long enough to reach anywhere in the middle of the dash area but short enough that the wire isn't dangling all over the floor board and looking messy. The wireless fast charging works well and is nice for when you need to use your phone on the go like Google maps. The whole mount is adjustable and fairly easy to set up and use. The power plug for the mount also comes with an additional USB slot built in so that you can wire charge a separate device at the same time, however its at regular charging speeds, it's not fast charge. But that being said it's a nice addition for charging something like an external battery or a tablet while on the go. Overall I would give the mount 5 stars but do to a couple flimsy feeling pieces and a cheap plasticky feel that doesn't scream longevity I can only give 4/5 overall rating but a 5/5 on functionality.

    Charges my iPhone X w/ Otterbox Defender!

    I was a little worried that this charger might not be able to handle my needs, but I've had zero issues with it charging my iPhone X through the Otterbox Defender case. The phone fits perfectly in the holder and i like that you can just push the screen in which, in turn, pushes the button behind it on the stand activating the side grips that clamp onto the phone. The charger is very sturdy and allows for positioning in a multitude of angles. After some adjustment, it's exactly where I want it, and there's no slippage or issues with the stand shifting position. I wish the charging port was in a slightly better position, but once you're plugged in, it doesn't really matter. I've noticed that maybe once or twice the phone wasn't charging and that was because I knocked a bag or something against the stand which dislodged the cable, but simply pushing it back in a little resolved that -- simply put, user error. I tried a magnetic version, also made by iOttie, but to no avail -- couldn't get the thing to charge at all, this however, works perfectly!

    Very Solid Mount, Easy to setup and use

    I wanted a wireless charger car mount for the iPhone X I had on order. I had a mount I was happy with for my iPhone 7 Plus, but that company didn't have a wireless charger, so searching I did go. I came across the iOttie. looked at a lot of Youtube videos of previous models. I then spotted this model online a week ago. When it went on sale this past week, I knew I was going to get one. A few days before iPhone X launch day, the clip on my mount broke, so I ordered for in store pickup that day. It worked very well with my iPhone 7 Plus, and it was ROCK SOLID. No bouncing that I had become accustom too with the old mount. Launch day came, and I hooked up the wireless charger when I left the Apple Store. It does a nice job of keeping the phone charged, while I am using it with a GPS program to alert me to traffic problems ( I drive almost 60 miles to work every day). I was impressed with it, so I purchased another one for the other car. I have it mounted to the windshield and it just works. It is worth the money. Very much worth the money

    I've had this mount for a while now. I purchased it as I had an iOttie mount before and I loved it. The mount does its job, it's simple to install and holds the phone very well. I've noticed over time that the mount will move more freely if touched at all, so I have to keep adjusting the phones position. I just recently upgraded to an iPhone XS and was excited to try out the wireless charging aspect. I've learned that it won't work with my case. If I take the back of the case off, it shows it's charging (though it doesn't charge very quickly), but as soon as I put the back of the case on again, it won't charge at all. I'm using the car charger that was included in the packaging to plug into the back of the mount, so I'm not sure why I'm having issues while others seem to not be having issues. I'm using the Fre Lifeproof case, so I'm not sure if it is the case or my mount, but if anyone has any suggestions to correct this, I'd love to hear them.

    I like the fact that when I set the phone into the stand that it automatically grabs the phone. I have found that when removing the phone that sometimes when you squeeze the release tabs that it is easy to trip the button in the center of the unit making the arms close after you've pulled the phone away from the charging base. Wish that when the release tabs were squeezed that the arms locked a little bit more positively when removing the phone. Also the green charging light, that let's you know if the phone is docked correctly, is impossible to see when the using a larger phone. Neither of which are deal breakers for this unit. Lastly if it isn't recognizing your phone, with wireless charging capabilities, you might have to loosen the knob on the back of the unit and lower the foot until you find the sweet spot where it recognizes the wireless charging spot on the back of the phone. On the Samsung Note8 the foot has to be set at its lowest setting. Lastly it has a GREAT sticky suction cup mount and doesnt seem to vibrate when traveling, with a phone mounted in it, like I've found with other units. Overall a nice, easy, and quick unit to use once all set up.

    I am constantly on the road in different rental vehicles. This wireless charger/mount has been wonderful. Wireless charging works very well. I’ve used other wireless chargers that didn’t last but this one has been rocking on for a long time. It’s very accommodating for larger phones w/cases. The mount itself has many adjustments which provide plenty of mounting positions. It lacks mounting options for vents or CD slots. This is not a problem. The suction cup works very well… Even on surfaces that are not smooth! Although if you really do need a smooth surface, it does come with a smooth plate and sticky back that can be used for the suction cup. I’ve tried a variety of car mount\wireless chargers and this is by far the best one I’ve found. I’m very pleased with it and I would recommend it to anyone!

    I use this charger in my truck and the suction cup is very sticky and has been moved twice in my truck over the last few months without issue. I bought this primarily to charge the phone on long trips while using the lightning port to send audio to my trucks AUXin port using the lightning to 3.5mm audio adaptor that Apple provides with all new iPhones. Im very satisfied with the unit and that’s after using it during hot and very cold temperatures in Utah. If the unit is kept fully retracted it states fairly sturdy without much shake. If fully extended it shakes quite a bit in my truck so I relocated the charger so I could use it retracted. I did have an issue with intermittent charging when I was not supplying it with enough input power. That was my fault for using a different charger and I upgraded to a multi port anker that does the job without issue. Overall it’s perfect for my use case and I recommend it!

    I've been using this mounted to my window. It adheres well, better than I expected. The positional adjustments are also both handy and functional. I usually have my phone (Galaxy S9+) in a folio case which the grips on the mount will handle fairly well but sometimes need to be checked to make sure it is secure. The charging function is certainly handy; however, when the phone is in the folio case there is simply too much distance and leather between the phone and the charger for the phone to charge. I've taken to removing the phone from the folio case or using a simple plastic case when I wish to charge it while driving. My stay at home wireless charger works through the leather case BTW.

    Beware Galaxy Note 8 Owners

    This charger is deeply flawed if you own a Galaxy Note 8. First of all, the little adjustable foot at the bottom of the mount needs to be longer. I had to remove the foot to even get the phone centered correctly to show that it was charging. I use an Otterbox Defender case, and as I stated the phone claims to be charging once you get it aligned properly on the mount by removing the foot, but if you are using Navigation--expect your phone to go dead on you if you are a road warrior. I drove about 5 hours with my phone on the charger while using Waze. My phone was at 36% charged when I stopped to eat. I thought, maybe the Otterbox was the problem, so I removed the case and tried again for about 3 hours. Still no charge increase. The only way I could get the phone to fully charge was by turning off all apps and then using the wireless charger.

    I have used the phone mount for a month on my Samsung S8, enclosed in Otter Box Defender case. It comes with its own car charger and cord. The charger also has extra USB slot for other devices. The instruction was simple to follow and mount arm has 225 degrees adjustable, plus telescopic feature for those who are farsighted. Qi pad has an adjustable lip to center phone correctly over the charging unit. When you place the phone on the pad it activated two arms to grasps the phone. The Qi unit will charge my phone with the OtterBox case is on. Con: the phone will overheat when charging in direct sunlight, causing the Qi system to shut down. While the grasping side arms have a good grip on the phone, if you hit the phone with your hand it will go flying off.

    When I bought the iPhone X, I started going Qi charger crazy (glad they finally brought that to the phones). I started looking for car Qi chargers and found this. This device is actually really cool! It securely holds my phone in place, charges it at a decent speed (less so if you're using GPS while it's charging), and the stand doesn't have much give when all set up (which means it won't bounce all over the place when you are on bad roads). Overall, I love this charger, but it doesn't displace heat all that well. And in the Texas sun, I've noticed my phone will start to overheat, and the screen will dim and the device will slow down. To prevent this, find some way to keep air blowing on it while charging. BTW, I don't consider that a flaw in the design of this product... It's a problem with Qi... wasted energy becomes heat.

    great phone cradle

    This phone cradle is a replacement to my previous Samsung phone cradle that pretty much felt apart in a couple of years. So far this cradle is holding up pretty well. The cradle has a very sticky suction cup that will remain stuck on a surface with barely any shaking when driving. The cradle have different features for a more comfortable phone setup compared to most cradles. The great feature about this cradle is the wireless charging option, I have a slim case on my phone and it works great, and my girlfriend has a thick otter box case on her iPhone and it charges just fine once lined up perfectly. The cradle is easy to attach and release the phone. All in all, the cradle looks like it will last longer than my Samsung phone cradle because of its sturdy design.

    Mounting and wireless issues

    Because I use my GPS on my phone, it was important that the phone was placed in a location in my car that provided safe viewing without having to take my eyes completely off the road if I needed to glance at the phone for a brief second. I do not text while driving so it was extremely important that I did not have to take my off the road. I only have two issues. One is the wireless connection for charging my phone. It occasionally does not charge. The other is mounting the phone itself. It requires both hands to place the phone in the charger. The spring that holds the grips open to be able to set the phone into the charger will not engage with one hand. So if I want to put the phone in the charger I have to pull over. I refuse to take both hands off the wheel while the car is in motion to get it to stay open long enough for me to use my phone.

    Solid Mount

    Great mount, it holds my phone firmly, ideal for hand free use. There are some minor draw backs, Firstly the extension at the bottom is very flimsy, wobbly, unstable, and can easily fall off if not tighten well enough. Secondly the wireless charging can turn off and on at will this probably is not a design flaw but a flaw from the phone manufacturer it really depends maybe it's this way in order for customers to buy original hardware or accessories from the phone manufacturer you really know. Other what I described the mount is a great product.

    Solid mount, but QI charging iffy

    Posted
    Dg603

    Love how solid the mount is & how easily phone is attached & removed from the cradle. But QI charging with my Galaxy S7 and Otterbox Commuter has 2 issues - 1) after 10-15 minutes phone says it is too hot and shuts off wireless charging 2) causes a lot of interference with FM Radio. Surprised to not see these issues from any other reviewers on here, wondering if it's something I'm doing wrong? Feedback welcome... But either way, I remedied both issues by taking the plug out of the back of the iOttie & just plugging adapter directly into the phone - works great this way, but not really worth the $50 to have to use this way. A little disappointed, but keeping it because it does hold the phone so well

    I purchased this product due to GA’s new hands free law prior to going on a long trip in my car. I was really enjoying the product. It charged the phone well enough, not much when i was using Waze and streaming music, but it sustained the charge. After these good experiences, I was very disappointed to find the mount in the seat of my car and the adhevise ring glued/melted to my dash after parking my car under the sun at work. I was unable to use the adhesive ring any more after this. I thought I could ditch the dash mount and go with the wind shield mount, however the suction cup had glued itself to the dash mount adapter. All I could do was return the mount for a refund. Again the product works great, just don’t buy it if you own a black car and live in a hot environment.

    This has caused me trouble on more than one occasion. From taking your phone in and out the screw that holds the bottom piece in place loosens. Multiple times it has fallen out. There is no way to see it without pulling it off the windshield which is difficult when the suction cup is stuck on there good. If the phone isn't in tight because of the loosened bottom piece the phone wont charge properly because it moves when your car hits bumps. It does the job when everything is perfect. I don't know if I would buy this again unless this problem is fixed in the future. I would recommend it just for the fact that if you are in need of a charge it's always in your car and can be adjusted.
