My car phone holder was broken, and I was looking for a new one.
I happened to find the 70mai wireless car charger available on Gearbest. Because it was at an affordable price, and it offered QI standard, 7.5W output for iPhone, gravity induction, meeting my needs. Thus, I bought it immediately.
The design of the package is weird, as the holder and charger are separate.
The charger is in the box, whereas the bracket is in an envelope. Is it to lower the cost?
Although the box is slightly indented, everything inside is intact.
On the back of the package are parameters. The product itself doesn't come with an adapter, so you've to prepare a 5V 2A adapter to support 5W wireless charging and a 9V 2A adapter to support 10W charging. A QC 3.0 car charger will be fine.
The package is awesome.
In the box are the wireless charger, a USB cable, a user manual, and fixtures.
There is a lot of useful information on the sticker of the wireless charger.
Three modes are available to fit smartphones in different sizes. It indicates that phone cases within 4mm thick are supported.
Two kinds of fixtures come with it can work with most car models. Since the head of the fixtures round, they can't connect well with the screw. It requires a lot of force to tighten them.
I choose the first way of installation because I can get a wider adjustable angle, but it will block part of the central control.
Let's take a look from the side. It's not connected to a USB cable yet.
I already have a QC 3.0 car charger. After connecting them, I will arrange the cable to avoid it from interfering driving.
On the back is a charging indicator, which you can't find it when using the wireless charger regularly.
Maybe it's for checking whether the charger functions properly.
In actual use, I've found it easy to put on/take off my phone, thanks to the gravity induction. As for charging, I haven't tested it yet in lack of tools.
Of course, the power doesn't reach 7.5W. With less than 80% charged, the battery will go over 80% slowly even after I enable GPS. When over 80% charged, the battery will remain at the same power level. In a word, it meets my needs.
1. Affordable, although no car charger is included;
2. Two kinds of fixtures at no extra cost for most automobiles;
3. Gravity induction, easy to use, avoiding plugging in/out frequently;
4. Power-efficient, high conversion rate.
1. Phones can't be fully tightened, and heavy ones might fall off;
2. It's difficult to screw and tighten the bracket. Maybe it is a defect of the mold;
3. The phone will likely fall off on extremely uneven roads.
In general, the wireless charger is an excellent choice for car owners.
I don't regret buying it. Why are you waiting?
