And even with this magnetic attachment system, the iTap 2 still charged our phone quickly—an average of 30 percent after a half-hour and 50 percent after a full hour.
Although this is slower than the other iOttie models we recommend, it was still on the higher end compared with all models we tested this year. Like most phone mounts with a magnet attachment, the iTap 2 does require you to stick a very strong magnet to the back of your phone or phone case you may be able to get away with slipping the magnet between your phone and the inside of your case, depending on what kind of case you have.

Too bad it … never actually charged our phone, even though the charging lights were clearly lit. Wireless Power Consortium. Sometimes his curiosity gets the best of him, such as when he plugged a space heater and a Marshall guitar amp into the same power strip.

You attach one of the included metal plates to your phone, either by using the adhesive or by slipping it between the phone and its case, and then stick the phone to the mount in any orientation you desire.

The mount itself connects to its base via a ball joint with a collar that lets you torque it down for more tension.
