Scosche has announced a new line of iPhone-focused Qi wireless charging accessories today at CES 2018. Each of these new products belongs to the MagicMount Pro line that includes solutions for desks, cars, night stands and more.
Scosche’s new line include four different mounts, which are designed for just about any scenario that you might want to charge an iPhone. Guaranteeing “the quickest charge possible”, Scosche supports 5W and 10W wireless power transfer. There’s not exact confirmation at this time on 7.5W, which the latest iPhones use.
Each Magic Pro mount includes an AC or DC power adapter, two MagicPLATE 3M mounts and a microUSB charging cable. The Window/Dash mount comes with an extra long cable that can be tucked into the trim of your car for a more sleek setup.
Along with today’s three new mounts, is the Qi Dock Powerbank that blends traditional portable power with the industry’s most popular wireless charging solution.
Scosche is also unveiling a new lineup of premium mounts that are wrapped in a metal alloy casing. The Elite line lacks any wireless charging capabilities, but offers a more visually appealing look that Apple users in particular should find attractive.
There’s no word on pricing for any of today’s announcements at this time, but we do know that Scosche’s latest products will hit virtual shelves later this spring. Its previously released products lead us to believe that you can expect to pay between $30-$50 for these new offerings.
Touted as the number one mount brand in the U.S.*, the entire MagicMOUNT ELITE line is constructed from military-grade metal alloy and stainless steel and features sturdy ball-joint sockets for 360-degree device rotation to set the perfect, personalized viewing angle. With a full range of motion, users can position devices in portrait, landscape or anywhere in-between. As with the previous award-winning MagicMOUNT models, the new MagicMOUNT ELITE line utilizes powerful rare-earth neodymium magnets that are 100% mobile device safe.
MagicMOUNT ELITE Dash (Part Number: XMED-XTET) for vehicles, as well as other surface applications, provides a compact, low profile unit that can be mounted on any dashboard, console or in tight and limited spaces. Its design allows for one-handed ergonomic operation to easily mount and remove devices. The Dash model includes two 3M Adhesive Mount Pads for multiple location placement options and a large and small MagicPLATE non-magnetic metal plates with 3M adhesive for use on a wide variety of mobile devices.
For an even greater range of motion on the road, at home, or in the office, the MagicMOUNT ELITE Double Pivot Adhesive and Double Pivot Magnetic (XMEDD-XTET/XMEDDM-XTET) offer an arm extension with dual-mount heads for additional placement options. Strong swivel friction allows users to place larger devices on the mount without interrupting the viewing angle. MagicMOUNT ELITE Double Pivot-Magnetic also come with the new ELITE MagicPLATE, with automotive backing, which can convert the magnetic base into an adhesive dash for tabletop or wall mounting. MagicMOUNT ELITE Double Pivot models also come with the standard large and small MagicPLATE non-magnetic metal plate with 3M adhesive for devices of varying sizes.
For those who want to keep their dashboard and console clear or have limited space on which to mount their mobile device, the MagicMOUNT ELITE Vent (XMEV-XTET) provides secure placement for a mobile device on virtually any vehicle vent, with new longer silicone legs for a safer and more secure hold. With one hand, the MagicMOUNT ELITE Vent can be detached from a vehicle and used as a hands-free stand on a countertop, office desk, airplane folding table and more for easy viewing. The MagicMOUNT ELITE Vent is a great travel accessory for use in rental vehicles and more, and includes large and small MagicPLATE non-magnetic metal mounting plates with 3M adhesive and protective stick film for easy removal of direct to device plate applications.
The MagicMOUNT ELITE Bar (XMEB-XTET) is the perfect accessory to place in the car, the garage, the home and anywhere in between. Its multi-purpose design allows users to conveniently mount multiple metallic items at the same time, including phones, tablets, GPS units, keys, cables, tools and more. The MagicMOUNT ELITE Bar comes with a long, large and small MagicPLATE non-magnetic metal plates with 3M adhesive and protective stick film for easy installation and removal of direct to device plate applications.
