Accompanying Cable and Plug
This car mount induction charger comes with a compatible cigarette lighter receptacle cable so that it can be supplied with power in your car. This suggests that you may also connect it to a standard plug socket for usage at home, although iOttie recommend using the supplied cable. In addition, the receptacle has a USB port built in to enable charging of another device.
Size and Aesthetics
The iOttie Easy One Touch 4 Qi Wireless Car Mount looks smart in a black all over colouration but is quite bulky in size, this is however so that the charger can provide a secure grip for your phone. Still, the size can be made less cumbersome due to the folding arm and the product blends in better with its environment due to its ability to secure on surfaces as well as windscreens.
This iOttie wireless charger functions as both a car mount and wireless charging pad simultaneously, allowing your phone to be visible and mounted in your car on both surfaces and windscreens whilst also receiving power wirelessly. The telescopic arm of the mount is also highly flexible and can extend from 4.9” to 8.3” pivoting up to 225°, allowing you to position your phone at almost any angle, you can even rotate the cradle all the way around. Further, air vents on the back of the device allow for circulation preventing a build up of excess heat.
The iOttie Easy One Touch 4 Qi Wireless Car Mount grips your device very securely thanks to its patented lock and release, simply press release bars either side to open the lock arms which will close automatically when your phone is in position, holding it in place.
The product also comes with a non-reusable dashboard pad which you can secure the suction pad onto. According to iOttie the base has a “strong suction force combined with a layer of sticky gel for a secure hold.” Finally, you can adjust the foot of the charger all the way down using an adjustable knob on the rear, this allows the charger to fit more securely around your phone.
While this product does only contain one coil, the One Touch trigger button allows you to easily centre your phone which is then held securely in place by the locking arms.
There appears to be no form of indicator on this device, however, since your phone will be mounted it should be quite clear whether your phone is charging correctly or not.
Value for Money 4/5
While the iOttie Easy One Touch 4 Qi Wireless Car Mount will set you back with its current price, it does provide a huge amount of functionality in a way we haven’t seen much of up until now. Therefore this product is highly recommended if you want to benefit from the added convenience of mounted car charging.
