I am looking for a fast charging wireless and magnetic phone holder, for my Samsung Note 8.
I did find a few products on Amazon.ca, but I am not sure if they are any good.

Please share what you use...
Brand and model no of the accessory.
A picture of the product will really help...

I hate the AC vent attachment. Share your experience on the same

I use this

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B01HBEY8Z0/?tag=upnet01-20

I use this but no magnetic mount. It's pretty easy to take it out and slide it in though. Has those easy release buttons .. so didn't really bother me. Used magnetic mounts before, hate to stick metal plates inside phone cover, I want to use my G6 without case( looks amazing with glass back). Which I why I choose this.

Although, remember this: even if you get wireless charging with magnetic holder, the phone will get hot in no time if you are driving in summer. So hot that it will stop charging, which is why people prefer near by AC vent, so it will cool down the phone as we drive.

Get AC vent thing, its not as bad as you think.. just have to set it up right.

I have Samsung s7 edge mounted on a dash far away from a/c, right in direct sun. No overheating whatsoever. Your phone need to be on a dash so always in front of your eyes, not on a/c opening where you will be taking your eyes away from the road

Dude we are talking wireless charging while the screen is ALWAYS ON with GPS and DATA ON. You might be charging phone using usb cable, which may not produce as much heat as wireless charging.

I have my phone mounted to AC vent while connected with android auto on in car dash. My uber app is ON in the phone, google maps is on car dash through android auto. seamless integration with voice command and navigation.

Secondly what kinda car are you driving, my AC vent's are pretty high up and I don't feel like I am taking my eyes off the road so far down. I mostly use android auto for directions, huge 8 or 9 inch screen in the car. the only time I use my phone is to tap the accept trip request thing.

if u feel suctioning is not as good after yr or whatever... use two drops of water on the suction cup to stick it on

Since he has S8+ which supports QC 3.0, I would suggest get a quick charge 3.0 one and not the 2.1

Quick Charge 3.0 supports 3.2v with 20V dynamic auto selection Quick Charge 2.0 supports 5V / 9V/ 12V Quick Charge 1.0 5V. I would advise getting a QC 3.0 charger over 2.1 as its not a huge difference in money spent a lot of difference in charge speed.

Wireless charging will only add to the heat you are already creating by running apps and gps. Plus if your phone is anywhere in sun it'll only make heating issues worse.

Heat will destroy your phone faster than anything else.

True, but darshit somehow is not seeing any heat with his phone. I am not sure what's going on with his phone.

You need to run a/c in your car in the summer. That way no one overheating, not me , not pax , no phone. Do you have A/C in your car?

Which is why I suggested use AC mount while wireless charging the phone and ubering.

No I don't have AC in my car, it just is just a semi autonomous that accelerates and brakes itself in traffic with self detected autonomous emergency braking system and a multi radar and camera controlled setup which has integrated satellite communication and smart-link capabilities.
