Scosche today announced the launch of several new products that make Qi wireless charging easier and more convenient for Apple’s iPhone 8 and later.
MagicMount Charge 3
The new Qi-compatible 10W MagicMount Charge 3 is the latest MagicMount product from Scosche, and it’s now available with a unique vent mount that features an articulated swing arm so it doesn’t impede airflow from a vehicle’s vent.

An iPhone attaches to the MagicMount Charge3 using Neodymium magnets, and the stand has been designed with a thermal management gap that between the phone and the mount to allow heated air to disperse.
There are a total of four mounting options for the MagicMount Charge3, including the aforementioned vent mount, a dash mount that uses adhesive, StickGrip mount for the window or the dash, and a double pivot option for more versatility.
The MagicMount Charge 3 will be available in spring 2019. Pricing has not yet been announced.
MagicGrip Charge Wireless Charging Mount
The 10W MagicGrip Charge Qi Mount, designed for use in the car, is a motorized charging stand that uses a sensor to detect when a Qi-enabled device is nearby.
When a Qi device like an iPhone is aligned with the charging coil of the accessory, the arms of the mount automatically close to hold it securely in place while you drive. The charging head is designed to offer full 360-degree rotation, letting users view the device in landscape and portrait orientations.
There are four mounting options for the MagicGrip, including a dash mount that uses an adhesive grip material, a grip mount with swing arm, a window/dash StickGrip base, and a Double Pivot option that offers more versatility.
