Design and features
One of the requirements that I have for phone holders for my vehicles is the ease of use when placing or removing the phone. I’ve had some mounts that just took too much effort to place or remove the phone. Not that the action was difficult, but that it took too long to do.
My favorite feature of the ACEFAST 15W charger has got to be the automatic adjustment of the height for wireless charging, something my son’s phone charger does not have. You simply place the phone in the charger, and the charger will adjust the height of the lower holding fingers until the phone is in the correct location for wireless charging. After the phone is in the correct location, the side clamps close on the phone, holding it firmly.
To release the phone, you tap a touch-sensitive area on the top of the unit, and the clamps open. The clamps also open when power is removed.
The ACEFAST wireless charger can charge a cell phone in a case as long as the case is less than 6mm (0.23″) in thickness, which is probably most cases since that’s relatively thick. You’ll also want to use the appropriate charging adapter (not included) to provide enough power for the phone you are using. You’ll want to ensure that you have a 2.4A adapter for best results.
There are several mounting options. Use the suction cup holder for windshield, dash, or center console mounting. Use the clip mount for mounting to an air vent, although I would avoid that due to the weight of this unit.
The adjustability of the mount is fabulous. The holder arm adjusts over 270° and rotates 360°. The holder arm is very sturdy and telescopes from 58-85mm.
The ACEFAST wireless charger also has a built-in battery so that it can operate the clamp when power is disconnected, such as when turning off the vehicle. When power is disconnected, it will open the clamp automatically so the phone can be removed without having to touch the release button.
The charger also has a Foreign Object Detector that can detect metal between the mobile phone and the wireless charger. If metal is detected, it will automatically stop charging to prevent overheating.
What I like
- Auto-Adjust for phone size
- Type-C charging cable
- Very good suction-cup mount
What I’d change
- Touch sensor could be a bit more sensitive
Overall, I really like the ACEFAST wireless charger. The suction cup sticks very well, and the mount is very sturdy. I do wish the touch button was more sensitive, but I’m getting used to it. The dash mount angle and length are very adjustable.
