On the one hand, the MagSafe Mount is indispensable. With out it, your MagSafe puck will transfer round your desk or nightstand. What’s extra, when not in use, it tends to fall to the ground.
The MagSafe Mount does what it units out to do. We love that it’s straightforward to free your MagSafe puck once you need to take it with you, one thing different holders do not all the time think about.
Whereas the mount fixes these issues, it creates a problem by itself. Since it’s holding your puck, you’ll be able to’t simply use your cellphone whereas charging now. You’re left selecting between a freely transferring puck and holding your cellphone whereas charging.
This is not a catastrophic challenge, and it is determined by the place you propose to put the MagSafe Mount and should you have a tendency to carry your cellphone whereas charging.

MagSafe prices quick sufficient, and we choose it up after we want it, however in any other case, we will work together with our cellphone whereas it sits on high of the charger.
In mattress, although, it is the tip of the day, and we do will be predisposed for mendacity there, utilizing our cellphone, and charging on the similar time. In that situation, Nomad’s MagSafe Mount is not ultimate.
We’ve not been utilizing the MagSafe too lengthy as of but, however we have now began to note some put on on our MagSafe cable, giving us a bit pause as to how the cable will maintain up over time. The overmold has a pointy crease from the tight match and the lip of the metallic puck exhibits some put on marks from the place it makes contact with the MagSafe Mount throughout insertion and elimination.
A stable product, actually
The MagSafe Mount from Nomad is a well-designed product that does resolve one among MagSafe most annoying issues. But, it will not be the answer everyone seems to be in search of.
We love the look, really feel, and distinctive wire administration of the gadget however nonetheless notice that we’re within the early days of MagSafe, and that is simply one of many first units to come back to market. As time goes on, we are going to seemingly see many iterations on this product and new ones from Nomad itself.
Should you’re in search of an answer now and do not thoughts the semi-permanent placement of your MagSafe puck, there are solely a pair extra premium choices obtainable. Its match and end are almost unequalled within the MagSafe area, the place we have seen primarily a great deal of silicone or plastic shells.
