The Scosche MagicMount wall charger offers a convenient way to juice up your phone without tangled cords


Accessory maker Scosche today announced a new product in its MagicMount line – a magnetic wall charger, designed with decluttering your home in mind. At a glance, the MagicMount wall charger looks like a regular power adapter, but it has a neat trick up its sleeve – it keeps your phone securely stuck to it via special magnetic plates.

The MagicMount wall charger uses no ordinary magnets. Instead, it relies on a powerful rare-earth neodymium magnet to secure your phone or tablet to it. At the same time, it is covered by a smooth-surfaced silicon pad to prevent any scratching of your device. The charger ships with a two-pack of large and small metal plates for mounting your phone or tablet onto it. The plate attaches to the back of the device, ensuring that no marring would occur on its housing when it comes in close contact with the powerful magnet inside.

Magnetic properties aside, the MagneticMount wall charger uses a fast charging technology to juice up your smartphone as quickly as possible through its 12W (2.4 A) USB port, all the while automatically adjusting its charging rate to ensure the safest and fastest solution for your device.

The MagicMount wall charger is available at Scosche’s online store right now for $29.99, as well as at select retailers in the US.

But what happened to only use charges that comes with your phone.

With a phone with half-decent QC, you shouldn't be worried. The phone should automatically cut-off extra current and voltage and let only the safe amount in.

Not if your phone's compatible with QC 3.0 and uses USB Type-C.

Great Writing PA! Second paragraph tells us how they are SPECIAL magnets and that the charger is covered with silicone to protect your phone. Third paragraph restates the exact same information. BTW, neodymium magnets aren't exactly "special". it's pretty much understood that if you need a magnet to actually bear weight and keep the size reasonable, it's going to be neodymium.

"and it keeps your phone securely stuck to it via special magnetic plates" that means with slight bump, your phone will enjoy a freefall... Shampoo/Lotion Bottle DIY Phone-Charging Cradle is much more secure, and totally free...

It's the future magnets are good now. But just in case you try it out first.

Magnets are bad for spinning disk storage (they use magnetized platters to store data). SSD/flash memory is good to go for the most part. Will not cause any issues (would not be strong enough even if it did contain a normal hdd)
