The $49.99 Pelican Protector EMS Wireless Charging Vent Mount charges my iPhone and allows me to keep in line with a new law in my home state of Tennessee.
Starting July 1, it became illegal to hold your phone while driving in the Volunteer State. Hold a cellphone or mobile device with any part of the body and/or write, send or read any text-based communication and you’re subject to a stiff fine.
It’s a good, practical law. And drivers are allowed to use GPS to navigate.
If the phone is mounted on the vehicle's dashboard, windshield or center console, you can use one swipe or tap to turn a feature on or off. Voice-to-text technology and hands-free devices are also allowed.
With the Pelican Protector EMS Charging Vent Mount — now available for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max — I can now be hands-free behind the wheel even while my Apple smartphone is charging. The all-in-one system features a Pelican Protector phone case with an integrated steel plate that securely connects to a magnetic vent mount.
The adjustable mount, available in black, lets you easily switch between landscape and portrait mode while staying connected to the wireless Qi charging system. To charge, place your Apple smartphone on the mount and press the status indicator button to being wireless charging cat up to 5W of power.
Did I mention it’s secure? It held my iPhone in place even as I drove up my long, somewhat bumpy driveway.
As for the Pelican Protector EMS Recharge Phone Case, it boasts a rigid, impact-resistant outer shell combined with a shock-absorbing rubber lining that offers some serious protection for your iPhone. It can also be used as a kickstart for media viewing.
The Pelican Protector EMS Wireless Charging Vent Mount keeps me from getting a ticket while keeping my iPhone juiced. Sure, it adds a bit of bulk to the smartphone, but that’s a price I’m willing to pay.
