If you need a quick, easy, inexpensive home for your smartphone in your car, iOttie has two polarizing options for you (Get it? Because magnets.)
The first option is a car mount that sits inside your empty CD slot and has a magnet sticking out that can hold most smartphones. It’s only $19 right now and has never dropped in price before, so it’s worth a shot. Something should go in that empty hole anyway, right? When’s the last time you used a CD?
If you’re a history buff that’s still into archaic forms of music listening, you can get this iOttie Air Vent mount that attaches to whatever vent you want and has a strong magnet to hold your smartphone. It’s the same price as the CD slot mount at $19. It has only dropped this low once in the last year.
To get your phone to attach, all you do is put an included metal plate between your phone and your case and the magnet can latch onto that. iOttie promises the magnet won’t interfere with your phone’s connection or any car navigation systems you might have.
If $19 is too much for you, Aukey has a magnetic air vent mount down to $5, normally $9, if you use code AUKEYHD3.
