    When I put my new IPhone XS Max in it, there was very little stability. My vents are horizontal and wouldn't hold still. It may work fine for others though. It did fit snuggly in holder though.

    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

    Nice Design, but Not Sturdy Enough

    I like the design, but I have two challenges with it. 1) I have a Samsung Note 8 which is a bigger phone. It slide down even when I position it mid way in the holder so thankfully my dash holds it where it ends up sliding to 2) Because of my car vents being more rectangular in shape it doesn't sit as well as in my husbands car that has several air vent slots.

    The clip does not hold, holder often falls down during driving. Cant be used "in vertical mode at all. Not worth the money.

    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.

    Got this for Father's Day. Installed in my car. Next day, it would not stay anchored on the vent. The pressure clip that holds the gravity cradle onto the vent, lost pressure and would not close. Taking it back.

    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.
