The phone mount that can handle 'the meanest potholes' is only $15 right now — and it will arrive before Xmas
Sick of balancing your smartphone over your speedometer while navigating Google Maps or Waze? There’s a more comfortable (and safer) way to do things when you’re on the road, but sometimes you get sick of fumbling with cell phone mounts that are constantly slipping, dislodging or popping off.
Right now, Amazon has slashed prices on WizGear phone mounts — both magnetic and grip-style — just in time for the holidays. Thousands of shoppers say these rugged car accessories have such a strong hold, they can handle “the meanest potholes” and “even the bumpiest roads.” They make a great stocking stuffer and if you snag one today it will arrive before Christmas!
WixGear Magnetic Phone Car Mount
Just attach the rubber base of this mount to your automobile’s air vent and lock it in place, feeling confident it will hold strong while you wind, weave and turn. Then attach the included magnet to the back of your phone or inside your phone case — then pop your phone onto the ultra-powerful magnetic mount, which you can rotate and swivel to your heart’s content. That base won’t budge. Today, it’s 25% off.
“This is by far one of the best magnetic mounts that I have used,” wrote one shopper. “It is very snappy, and the magnetic hold is strong enough...that running over the meanest potholes cannot deter this magnet from ever dropping your phone, let alone sliding it out of its default orientation.”
WixGear Universal Stick On Mount (2 Pack)
These on-sale universal accessories hold any kind of iPhone or Android phone you’ve got, but instead of taking up space on your air vent, they use a tiny, mighty magnetized base to adhere to the dashboard.
I don’t know how we ever lived without this!,” wrote one impressed customer. “Georgia has the new hands-free law, so we needed a way to talk on the phone or use navigation without actually holding the phone in our hands or on our laps...You can mount this anywhere. I have mine right by the steering wheel at just the right angle and distance from me. I can voice call on speaker phone or Bluetooth without ever touching the phone. It’s awesome.”
WixGear Car Cup Holder Phone Mount
Not into magnetic mounts? This 35%-off WizGear gadget has rubber-covered grips that wrap around your phone and hold it firmly as you’d hold it in your hand — without scratches or damage to the phone itself. A 360 adjustable base attaches to your car’s cup holder and locks into place, then lets you not only swivel the phone but keep it in either landscape or portrait mode.
"I had previously bought a cell phone holder that attached to the heater/AC vents but found that this mounting application obstructed my view of various controls, so I bought this phone holder that fits in one of my cupholders," wrote one shopper. "This is a perfect application for me. Having the phone located lower and not blocking my view of various controls is much more important to me than the loss of a single cup holder."
