    Great Idea but Inconsistent charging and not as stable as I would have expected for the cost. I returned it after 2 days and will wait a few months until the design and function is improved.

    Made of Cheap plastic, the arms do not respond to grip the phone as described, and the wireless charging feature is not working on the one I purchased. I will be returning it to the store

    The wireless charging doesn't really work. It shows that it's charging but it doesn't charge the phone at all. I bought it for a road trip and had to stop and get an actual car charger because my phone was dying.

    Great concept, but hard to keep connected to vent

    I love the concept of a wireless charger in my car, but this one has a couple of inherent issues that keep me from loving it for $49. 1. The clasp mechanism that connects the unit to the air vent does not stay tight, so when I take a curve or a quick stop in the car it is a very good bet that the unit is going to come off from the vent. I have been lucky that there has been no phone damage yet, but I am worried every time I have to stop. 2. Very slow charging. I can live with this, but a standard 1 hour commute with my iPhone X in the device, running Waze throughout, I rarely gain any battery life, it just keeps it wherever it was when I started (e.g. when my drive starts at 60% battery and I use Waze for an hour with the phone plugged in, I end the drive right around 60% battery). Its better than the charge going down, but a tough concession for $49.

    Qi charger and iPhone holder

    My iPhone X has wireless charging but I was using a magnetic holder that blocked the charger signal. So I converted to this and it works just as advertised. Only drawback is the USB end of the cable seems loose and sometimes disconnects which stops the charge.

    The best cell phone holder/charger I've found

    I'm using this product with an iPhone XS. I've used this for 2-3 weeks with absolutely no complaints. I've never been satisfied with any vent-mounted cell phone holder I've bought, because at the most inopportune time during driving, the holder, and my cell phone, would fall onto the floor if I hit a hard bump in the road. As an engineer, I will say that this was actually, pretty thoughtfully designed. I drive a lot (~22k miles/year), so it's been tested by me. PROS: There is a small lever on the bottom of the holder, where the two 'jaws' (the things that pinch / grasp the vents); it has two settings (tight, tighter), for flexibility for the thickness of the vent louvers. They DO work REALLY well. The 'gravity-drop' design is where the cell phone rests on the bottom, and its weight (by virtue of its mechanism) causes the 'arms' on the left and right hand sides of the holder to move inward. It sounds complicated, but it does hold the cell phone securely in the charger/holder (not excessively tight though), so it doesn't move too much while driving (even on bumpy roads). Since it doesn't move much while you drive, it stays in place, and it continuously charges your cell phone (my screen doesn't come on and go off constantly, as the phone bounces in the holder). There is a small, inconspicuous LED light on the right-hand side, to indicate that electricity is being supplied to the charger. The design is sleek / slim, so it doesn't stick out like a sore thumb on your dashboard. There is a pivot point or joint, that allows you to angle the holder/charger as you wish, without compromising how tightly it's holding onto the vent louver. CONS: There really aren't any. The lack of these aren't necessarily 'negatives'; more like nice-to-haves: I'm not certain if there is a way to tighten the pivot/joint, but it should have one just in case. I saw a vent mounted charger that had a small flip-down support, so it could be placed against the dash molding if needed.
