CES 2022 may not have been the CES we were all hoping for, but it still brought much news. Often lost in the “big” announcements is the work of accessory companies who make our devices even better. Scosche had lots of new products to share, including two new Scosche MagicMount solutions for car use and power solutions for every situation.

The key to the Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge5 is the powerful Neodymium magnets within the mount head. Strategically placed and surprisingly strong for their size, these magnets are strong enough to hold even the weighty iPhone 13 Pro Max securely with up to 15W charging. The 360º head adjusts so you can view your phone in portrait or landscape.

Android devices can also be securely by using the included Scosche MagicPlate, which enables “a quick and easy “snap” attachment between the phone and the mount for and fast and efficient wireless charging.”

As a bonus, each MagicMount Pro Charge5 mount ships with a car adapter that not only powers the mount but also has a bonus 20W USB-C charging port so you can connect and charge a second device simultaneously.

The Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge5 will be available in four mounting options: Window/Dash, Dash/Vent, Window/Dash Telescoping, and Cup Holder. Arriving this spring, they will sell for $64.99

Three USB C ports combine to create a 60W USB-C Power Delivery charging section with the 60W shared between the three ports. Thus, up to 60W of power will be delivered when one device is plugged in. If two devices are connected, each can access up to 30W of power. And, of course, if three devices are connected, each can access up to 20W of power.

And while USB-C is finally approaching ubiquity, we all still have some cables that require a legacy USB-A port. That’s what the final 12W USB-A charging port is for.
