So I am deciding between the Apple black leather (which I have and love for my 8+) and the Pitaka MagCase for my new Gold Xs Max.

The problem with my leather is that I have to shove a metal plate down at the bottom of my leather case to work with my car mount but it is often unbalanced on the mount.

How well do you think the MagCase would work with my TechMatte cd magnet mount? Also curious on the feel compared to the leather case... what would you get?

Hi, this is Sarah from PITAKA.

Just checked the TechMatte cd magnet mount you mentioned online and it seems can't work with the MagCase, or let's say it can't be sure until you place the Magcase on the mount.

PITAKA MagCase (pro) is specially designed to enable your phone to be placed on the charger solidly whilst able to be charged wirelessly. and it won't ruin the beauty of your phone without attaching the metal plate.

Check the 3rd picture of the site https://www.ipitaka.com/products/magcase-for-iphone-xs?variant=12836984979526, the center part is for wireless charging and the upper and bottom are embedded with 2 metal plates to work with the PITAKA wireless charger MagMount Qi. (which has several magnets inside as well to work with the MagCase)

Regarding the feel, MagCase is made of 100% aramid and you can feel the real texture with your fingers. check what those reviewers say about it:

Anyways, it's a case doesn't like any other, especially when it works with the PITAKA MagMount (Qi).

Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks

Kind regards
Sarah

Does the case work with the Scosche magnet mounts? That would be a sure order for me an a lot of others as that magnet mount system has been out and widely available for years.
Would like to know too... from reviews on Amazon some people said it worked fine and other said it wouldn't attach securely and only vertically, so I'm not sure which reviews are right.

Hi, thanks for the question. We made a test to show if they are compatible, kindly check the video.
As it shows, MagCase works well on the Scosche magnetic mount :)

Any other questions you want to ask, feel free to ask.

Kind regards

Thank you. My mount is a little different but I’m still thankful for the video and I’ll give it a try.

You are welcome!

By the way, for your reference, the best companion to MagCase is MagMount (Qi) since it's made specially to work with the MagCase, The magnets inside the MagMount (Qi) are placed exactly in the position of the corresponding metal plates in the MagCase. so it's much easier for your phone to align automatically whilst being attached steady and safe on the MagMount (Qi). Check it out if you want.https://www.ipitaka.com/collections/magmount-qi?utm_source=Macrumors&utm_medium=taka

Anyways, thanks for your interest in PITAKA product!

Hello Sarah. Does the Magmount Qi support 10W wireless charging?

@Sarah-PITAKA What car charger would you recommend to use with the Magmount Qi to ensure fast wireless charging?

And what cable would you recommend for that?

Thank you Sarah, you are amazing.

A couple more questions, then I will stop bothering you :)

Does the cable that’s included with the Magmount Qi support fast charging?

How does this look for fast wireless charging with the Magmount Qi?

Yes, the cable supports fast charging as well.

Feel free to ask more questions :D
