TechMatte MagGrip Car Air Vent Smartphone Mount Product Review

I’m a big fan of magnetic car mounts.  It’s so much easier than using a cradle.  Familiarity with the TechMatte name started with their CD player mount.  I recently picked up one of their vent mounts.  It’s called the TechMatte MagGrip Car Air Vent Smartphone Mount. I have found that all magnetic mounts are not made the same.  Some have very weak magnets that do not work well through a thick case.  Other mounts may not hold onto a vent well.  A good magnetic car air vent mount isn’t going to drop your device when you hit a bump.

Magnetic Metal Surface Mounts for Tablets and Phones

Today we discuss how to stick a phone or tablet to a metal surface.  There are a lot of instances where metal surface mounts come in handy.  Think about stuff made of metal.  A refrigerator door, work bench, file cabinet, even the side of a stationary car (key word is stationary, I don’t like to use these mounts on the outside of a moving vehicle).

We have recently become fans of magnetic mounts so it’s no surprise that I gravitated towards the TechMatte MagGrip CD Player Magnetic Mount when looking for a CD player smartphone mount.  Only recently did I become aware of TechMatte as a manufacturer of competitively priced mounts and posted our first review of one of their products, the TechMatte MagGrip Vent Mount and you can read that review here. CD Player mounts are reasonably new versus traditional mounts like a suction cup or vent variety.  Turns out this is a good location for lightweight devices.  We wrote a detailed article on CD … Read more

Magnetic GPS Mounts

The mount industry has finally warmed up to magnetic mounts.  We first wrote about magnetic mounts a few years ago and we were puzzled why there weren’t a bunch available.  The only ones that we knew of back then were from a company in Italy who charged quite a bit for these versus where the prices were for the non magnetic models.  We were big fans of magnetic mounts because of the ease in installing and removing your device from your car.  There’s nothing easier.  Well since we first discovered our first magnetic mount, things have changed and the industry has … Read more
