This $8 phone mount 'works perfectly' according to fans — grab it while it's nearly 40% off

What is it?

There are as many types of phone mounts as there are varieties of phones, and every single one offers something a little different. Still, it can be tough to find one that does exactly what you want (or that fits your phone), but the Mongoora Car Phone Mount brings universal compatibility to the arena. It works with almost any kind of phone, and you can snatch one up right now for just $8.

With one-hand placement and removal, this mount means no more fumbling for your phone when you get out of the car — it disconnects easily.

Why is this a good deal?

Compared with other phone mounts of this type, $12 is a pretty good deal — but this lightning deal makes it an absolute steal, whether you're grabbing one for yourself or as a gift. That's right: Christmas is coming, so go ahead and get a jump on your stocking stuffers.

Why do I need this?

The mount snaps securely onto your vent for a strong hold. Once it's on, just rotate the clip to adjust the position of your cell. It holds the phone out and away from the vent so that it doesn't completely block airflow, and it comes with a metal plate to ensure your phone snaps on securely to its magnet.

No more fiddling with a release or ensuring the mount grasps your phone securely — just place it against the magnet and go. Mongoora claims that it can support a device up to nearly a pound in weight, so you could even (theoretically, anyway) fit an iPad or other tablet. It's also designed to stand up to hard bumps, even if you take your ride off-road.

Just one reason we find ourselves irresistibly drawn to this magnetic phone mount: It can hold a nearly one-pound device securely in place.

What reviewers say

"This is a great holder. I have tried so many and they either don’t fit properly, drop the phone or get in the way of the other things on the dash. Works perfectly in both our Mazda and Prius. Easy to open and close to get the phone in and out, easy to plug in the charger while in the holder, and doesn’t drop out due to the weight," raved one fan.

Another said, "This works really nicely and the magnet holds very well. I have a case with a silver finger ring on back and it stays in place and doesn't move when on the mount."

There is one wee complaint that popped up among reviewers: "I don't like the feel of the metal plate on the back of my phone case. To minimize this, I used the smaller round disk and placed it higher up, so that my hand can hold on to the phone below the plate."

Whether you're an iPhone, Samsung or even a Pixel user, this mount has you covered.
