    Probably not the best one they sell.

    I had a rental vehicle for the weekend, and wanted a window mounted cradle for my phone. I normally use another brand (which I also bought at best buy) but I didnt bring it on this trip, because I didnt expect to be driving at all, but I ended up having to make a 3 day side trip, and needed to use my phone for navigation. I ONLY bought this specific one because it was on sale. Cons: It does not come with the actual cigarette lighter plug, you have to supply this separately. It uses USB C to charge, and includes a USB C to USB A cable about 4 feet long. It is also not as stable, especially with the arm fully extended, as other brands. On my rental Sentra, i had to put the suction cup on the window and extend the arm fully, and it would wobble badly until i remounted it so that the base rested on the dash, which blocked part of the radio and dash controls. Does not stick to all dash surfaces. It wouldnt stick to the textured dash of my rental Sentra, but it did stick to the dash on an Equinox we rented later. Does not come with a separate adhesive "disc" like a lot of others do. Would not charge properly using the USB A ports on a Chevy Equinox, or from the USB C with the proper cable. Had to buy a cheap cigar plug adapter which put out at least 2 amps. It DID, however work on the USB port in my Nissan Sentra. Charges slowly. 5 amp output if that. Took 6 hours of continuous driving to bring my iphone x from 50% to 90%, although i did have the screen on with navigation (But it was at night so the screen was as dim as i could make it). During the day, I had to keep the screen off as much as possible so it would charge reliably. Pros: It held my iphone X and my iphone 8 plus securely. Both had thin cases on. I even had the 8 plus in a horizontal position, and it held it nicely. Charged both my iphone x and iphone 8 plus, although slowly. Charged my friend's samsung as well. The charging light was unique. The bottom "hooks" which hold your phone lit up in a white glow for a few seconds when you put your phone on the charger, to indicate it was positioned correctly, then turned off so it wouldnt be a distraction. I really like that. It confirms its working without being annoying.

    Best Car Charger

    This is the best working charger I've ever had for my car, simply because it actually works. This thing is pretty malleable. The main holder can swivel. It is attached to a ball joint and the armature can extend a couple extra inches if needed. The orientation is controlled by the orientation you suction it in, it doesn't swivel. That is a good design choice. The USB cable is included, and it works well on my charger. This charges and holds my S8+ as advertised. The clamp provides a good hold on the unit. No longer do I have to wonder where my phone bounced to after I have to do a hard turn or swerve around an obstacle in the road. The suction cup has only come off once after a few days, probably because it was dusty and I was too lazy to clean it. It hasn't come off since. It has a clamp to secure the suction cup properly. You must have a smooth surface. Pending how deep the texturing is on your dash, a non-flat surface suctions for 4 hours to a day max. I got mine on sale and this is worth the money.

    Fits iPhone XS Max with case

    I purchased this for my truck and iPhone. When originally purchased I had an iPhone 7+ with a LifeProof case. It barely fit and needed to be squeezed in. Without the case, it fits fine. Then I purchased the iPhone XS Max and the Apple leather case. Even with the case on, it fits perfectly. My only complaint is the wiggle I get in the mount. It seems like you just can't tighten the joints down hard enough to keep it completely tight and in place. That's why it gets a 4 star. I haven't used the wireless charging since I need to plug into my car stereo in order to use CarPlay. All in all, it's a decent phone mount. The suction cup on my dash has held fine and hasn't come loose yet.

    Worth the buy

    So i saw this and since I hadn't heard of the company before so I immediately asked a rep to assist to review the reviews. The reviews give this thing no justice! This was an amazing purchase and fits my iPhone 8 plus no problem without a case! Or if you do have a case it can only be half an inch bigger then the phone itself. Make sure the adjustments are tight and that is all. It doesn't fall on bumps. Trust me I've got some hard bumps to see lol Only negative thing I can say is that you May need a longer usb-c cable however overall worth the buy. If not you have 15 days to return no biggie

    Bought this for my wife thinking she would put it in the middle of the dash where it's smooth. The suction cup had a super stick middle that allowed her to put it on the texture part on the side and it hasn't budged in over 2 weeks. Plus it charges fast.

    I Bought for a trip and put it on dashboard to hold my iPhone. I asked while in store an they told me it would work, put phone on the holder and it would not stay upright as it would not stick as it kept falling off and would not stick. Does not work as designed.

    Well made but doesn't hold on all surfaces.

    The dash mount is a well made device but I found it didn't stay attached to the texture of my dashboard. It held very well on the windshield itself but it fell off after a few hours when I tried to mount it to the dashboard.

    I bought this Product, then returned it because I felt that it didn’t grip the iPhone in a good spot. Phone keep falling off the holder when I hit a bump in the road. It need to be able to change the footing on the bottom to fit all phone better.

    I loved using this thing all the time when I drive, until it would fall onto my laps. The charger on it is amazing, it just couldn’t hold up for me on the dashboard. Had to return it. Let me know if there is a better mount.

    This mount does its job. It could be a little more rigid. Also it seems to not wireless charge with any sort of substantial case on it such as an Otterbox or even Samsung's own rugged case.

    Good phone mount for car

    Easy to install and fits large phones even with a slim case on it. You don’t have to take your case off to charge as the Qi charger works through the case.

    Works great. It’s sturdy and holds very well attached to the windshield. Allows you to use touch screen without worrying about falling or moving.

    I was hoping it would be better. It doesn’t stay in place all the time. It also does have much room to hold my iPhone 8plus comfortably.

    Great for attaching to surfaces that aren't perfectly smooth. Charger is extremely slow and gets the phone really hot.

    I got this to be able to keep my phone charged while using it as a GPS. It would over heat on 2 trips with it and quit charging.
