One of the most difficult tasks that I had as a smartphone owner was finding a nice and sleek looking vent mount for my car. I tried a couple different ones but they were either too bulky or didn’t stay connected to the vent very well. After searching Best Buy, Target, and Wal Mart, I turned to Amazon and crossed my fingers on ordering a few since I couldn’t see them in person. I tend to be pretty picky about my phone accessories. After testing all the mounts that I had purchased, I found one that I really like and that works really well, it is the TechMatte MagGrip Vent Car Mount found on Amazon.

As you can see it is a very simplistic accessory, it comes in a small and compact box. In the photo to the right, it will show you what is in the box. It comes with the mount, a rectangular magnet, and a circular magnet. I have only used the rectangular magnet because it gives me the ability to put my phone a little higher or lower on the mount without having to adjust the magnet. If you use the circular magnet, you will most likely need to place the phone in the same place on the mount, so you have a firm grip. I do like how they have a back up magnet, though. Should something happen to the magnet that I am using, I will have another one I can use as a back up, which is nice. The magnets can either be placed inside your phone case or if you don’t have a case, they do have adhesive on one side to stick to the back of your phone.
My only complaints with this mount have been the scratches on my vent and the prongs do get stretched out eventually. However, something to keep in mind is that I share a car with my wife, so she is constantly taking it down as it restricts air coming out of the vent. If you were to install the mount on your vent and not take it down often then it would be perfect. The prongs wouldn’t stretch out and you wouldn’t need to keep sliding it on, therefore, you wouldn’t get the vent scratches. Overall, for the price, this is an awesome car mount. It’s simple, it works well, and it is inexpensive. Click below to be directed to the product listing on Amazon.
