For this week's giveaway, we've teamed up with Scosche to offer MacRumors readers a chance to win one of the company's MagicMount Pro Charge wireless chargers.

Priced at $69.99, the MagicMount Pro Charge is a versatile, upright wireless charging mount that can go anywhere, offering charging capabilities and easy access to the iPhone wherever it might be.


You can use the MagicMount Pro Charge on a desk, in the car for access to maps, in the kitchen for viewing recipes, and more.

The MagicMount Pro uses magnets to hold your iPhone in place, with no base or cradle required, keeping it at an optimum viewing height with an unobscured display and accessible ports.


There are magnets built into the MagicMount Pro Charge, which work with a metal MagicPlate that attaches to the iPhone. The magnets do not impede wireless charging, with the MagicMount Pro Charge offering 7.5W charging for Apple devices and 10W charging for Android devices.

The MagicPlate attaches to the back of an iPhone or an iPhone case using an adhesive, with the iPhone plate able to be easily removed.


A StickGrip suction base at the bottom makes sure the MagicMount stays in place while you're using it, and the charging portion can be swiveled, rotated, or tilted so you can adjust your iPhone's display to where you want it.


A power adapter is included with the MagicMount Pro Charge, with the cord routed through the base of the device. As with most wireless chargers, foreign object detection is included to prevent accidents from overheating.


MagicMount Pro Charge is Qi-certified and has been laboratory tested to ensure safety, energy efficiency, interoperability, and more. The charger works with the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X, XR, XS, and XS Max.

We have eight of Scosche's MagicMount Pro Charge accessories to give away. To enter to win, use the Rafflecopter widget below and enter an email address.

I thought using these plates in a case or inside your case made it so you couldn’t wirelessly charge an iPhone 8, X, etc. due to the interference of the metal plate.

I'm sure the large plate that is pictured would interfere with wireless charging. However, they also picture two smaller plates that correlate to the two small magnets that are placed outside of where the coils are. Seems like the smaller plates would not interfere with wireless charging.

However, I do think, sticking these plates on the outside of your case would interfere with the aesthetics of the phone.;)

Works just fine. There is no metal over the coil with either of these solutions.

The large “plate” is really plastic with metal on the top and bottom edges. No interference.

There are already a couple of products more or less like this that have been on the market for some time (offered by Mophie and Xvidia), so you can't exactly say Scosche is filling a vacuum. The only interesting new wrinkle is that you can doctor any case you have rather than having to use theirs, which means you can use it with any model of iPhone or Android, which a lot of people will appreciate who have models not supported by the competition. What would be even more useful would be if they would take the Magic Mount and scale it up so it could be used with iPads. I'd happily part with some Big Bucks to get my hands on that!
