The Groov-e Wireless Car Mount with Auto Grip system detects and adjusts to the size of your device. 360 degrees rotation for both viewing and charging, with access to all ports and switches. Includes Air Vent and Window mount options for you to choose.
Whilst not ugly, this Qi-compatible charger looks basic. It is made of black plastic, and it is sturdy, but there’s nothing special or attractive about this. For some, this is a good thing as it is unobtrusive when you’re not charging your phone because of the matte black finish blends in.
The Auto Grip is the coolest part of this charger. There is an IR sensor that detects the phone and then closes onto the device. Apple, Samsung, and other phone brands that use Qi can charge wirelessly when placed in the holder, and thanks to a 10W fast-charge output you can recharge quickly whilst on the road. Groove-e includes a Quick Charge Car cable for a fast-charging mode which is great because you don’t have to look for extra pieces to make use of this. Because the cable is included you can unbox, set up and go.
There is an LED light which makes it easy to see when the charger is powered, and the light is bright enough to be visible during the day. This is a great way to know at-a-glance that your phone is being charged, without distracting you from the road. The 360° rotation allows you to set this up on your dash in the way you find most useful.
With 2 years warranty included, this is a functional, practical car charger with the added benefit of in-car fast charging. It makes using Google Maps for navigation easy and helps you stay connected on the move. Because it is a universal charger you can also let your passengers charge up their Qi-enabled smartphones.
