AUKEY Magnetic Car Mount (HD-C23)
Is the AUKEY Magnetic Car Mount (HD-C24) to bog for your needs? AUKEY do have a small version, the AUKEY Magnetic Car Mount HD-C23.
Came in a small brown box like all AUKEY product you get the mount itself, two sets of magnetic pad a circular and a rectangular, warranty card and user manual. Basic but hey simplicity make it a lot better.
Build Quality 9/10
Like the HD-C24 the build quality is excellent. The magnetic pad are lined with 3M double sided tape for a secure grip when install to your device. The same great quality is applied on the swivel ball head and rubber mounting legs. The attention to details is good.
Using the same iphone 6 Plus I have together with the rectangular pad sandwich between the phone and the case the magnetic connection is good but not great. The phone is quite big for the mount to handle (subjective). The case I’m using is quite slippery adding to the problem not having a firm grip. For smaller phones it will do just fine.
Like its bigger version the HD-C23 Magnetic Car Mount works wonderful. Don’t get fooled by the size this item will have a firm grip on you device/s. Just take note when using a case that is a bit thick I would suggest to stick the magnetic pad outside your case. The only downside you have a pad that is sticking out especially if you have a colorful case. It won’t have any issue handling phones with a metal back. The installation was easy and the adjustability to suit your needs makes it a must have item for your vehicle. Highly recommended.
