This magnetic phone mount handles 'the meanest potholes' for just $15 and has 6,000+ fans

What is it?

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. Thousands of shoppers say these rugged car accessories have such a strong hold, they can handle “the meanest potholes” and “even the bumpiest roads.”

One of the reasons customers are drawn to WizGear phone mounts is the fact that these gadgets don’t use the kind of suction mount that tends to suck...but not in a good way. Instead of sticking to your vehicle’s dashboard, these mounts clip onto your car’s air vents or stick to your dashboard with a magnetic force—and stay put no matter how rocky the road gets.

Why is this a good deal?

Phone mounts can be hit or miss, but this one is backed by more than 6,000 perfect reviews — and though the discount isn't the best it could be, it's a lot less expensive than a distracted driving ticket.

Why do I need this?

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.

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.

What reviewers say

“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.”

Another fan said, "We have had one of these for some time now (over a year) and it works very well. The mount stays attached to the heat vent, and the magnetic mount makes it super easy to attach your phone, provided you have a case on the phone so you can put the metal plate in (my husband had to be without a case for a while and the magnets did not work well without that, at least with his phone). We liked it so much we also bought one for my mom for her car."

"So far, I used the Wix Gear phone mount three weeks is all. Not a lot of time but so far its great I have the iPhone 13 Pro Max and it holds it solid, it stays fastened and I do drive bumpy gravel roads as well as tar roads. I have it fastened to the vent and as tight as I could get it and everything is working perfect. I've had the phone magnets that fit flat against the vent and like this one much better, doesn't block the air coming out of the vent. Would buy this product again at this time," said one user who has an (understandable) love of air conditioning.

"The one downside is that the mount is mounted on the heat vents, and this can sometimes make your phone either too hot or too cold. During those times when I have to be running either the heat or the AC on high, I generally avoid having my phone on the mount for long periods of time," warned one user.

This two-fer deal includes two ultra-powerful WizGear magnetic phone mounts for the price of one. Some reviewers with larger phones are even using both at once to keep their device extra secure.

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.”
