SCOSCHE Industries has introduced the MagicMount Charge3, a wireless charger available in a vehicle vent mount.
The Qi-charging mount boasts an open design and an articulated swing-arm that allows unimpeded air-flow from a vehicle’s vent. The charging head independently rotates 360 degrees. The articulated swing arm offers even more positioning options, including moving the phone completely away from the vent, while still anchored there.
Certified by the Wireless Power Consortium (WCP), the charger delivers up to 10W of charge, supporting Apple and Samsung Fast Charge. It provides the extra safety protection of Foreign Object Detection, which prevents charging if something other than a Qi-enabled device is placed on the charging head. An ambient light sensing LED light ring illuminates soft blue during normal charging and flashes red to indicate foreign object detection.
When held in place by the MagicMount Charge3’s 100% device-safe Neodymium magnets, a thermal management gap is created between the phone and the Qi-charging head. This gap allows heated air to disperse and be replaced by cooler air during charging. Cooler charging is safer for the life of the device’s battery, as well as the device itself.
The MagicMount Charge3 is available in a choice of four mounting options suitable for home, office and vehicle. It will be available this spring; pricing hasn’t been announced.
