Using your smartphone in the car is certainly not a safe thing to do when behind the wheel, but that still doesn't stop many drivers as they use their mobile devices for anything from GPS navigation to streaming music. Constantly picking up and putting down your phone leaves room for taking your eyes off the road, which is why it can be a better idea to use in-car phone mounts that can place the device more at eye level. Car mounts generally aren't too expensive but it's never a bad thing when you can save a little bit of money, and right now you can pick up a few different car mounts on sale, with a magnetic air vent mount from Mpow being on sale for $7.99. You can also pick up a magnetic air vent mount from AUKEY for $14.99, or a slightly larger and square shaped magnetic car mount from Mpow for $14.99.
All three car mounts attach to your vehicle's air vents so they're easily removable and can be placed in different vents as you see fit, and they all attach to your device via magnets, which work perfectly for phones with metal backs. For phones that don't have metal backs, each mount also comes with a thin metal plate that can be affixed to the back of your device with an adhesive, or you can simply place the metal plate in between the back of your device and a case if you have one on your phone. Both Mpow models feature a 360-degree swivel function that allows for rotating your device between landscape and portrait modes without having to remove the phone from the mount and reattach.
