- ESR has launched the "world's first" MagSafe compatible wireless charging car mount.
- The mount will work with the iPhone 12 and MagSafe compatible cases.
- It is also launching a MagSafe compatible iPhone case.
ESR, maker of a range of popular Apple accessories, has launched the "world's first" MagSafe compatible wireless charging car mount. The HaloLock Magnetic Wireless Car Charger Mount will be compatible with Apple's new iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro, using either just the phone itself or with a MagSafe compatible case.
HaloLock™ works seamlessly with MagSafe to make charging the iPhone 12 as easy as tapping it to the mount. Previous magnetic mounts required an additional magnetic plate on the back that interfered with wireless charging, whereas the ESR car mount, when paired with an official Apple MagSafe case or an ESR HaloLock™ case, combines the convenience of a magnetic mount and wireless charging into a single easy-to-use device.
ESR CEO Tim Wu says that the company saw an opportunity to bring wireless charging to even more users when Apple announced MagSafe at its "Hi, Speed" iPhone event.
"When we learned Apple was going to introduce MagSafe technology to the iPhone 12 lineup, we saw an opportunity to once again make life easier for our users. By turning this innovative technology into easy-to-use accessories, we're confident that HaloLock paired with MagSafe will be able to get even casual users to give wireless charging a try."
The company says that it plans to expand its HaloLock™ system to its entire lineup of iPhone cases over time.
You can preorder the HaloLock Magnetic Wireless Car Charger Mount for iPhone 12 for $39.99 directly through ESR's website. The company says that it will begin shipping the product in November.
