Hong Kong (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
Accessory maker Mountr® launched its MOUNT, CHARGE, ANG GO!™ solutions at the Global Sources Mobile Expo in Hong Kong, where professional buyers from over 45 countries unanimously declared this product line an instant hit.
Mountr’s new mounting & charging solutions make it easier than ever before to mount a phone securely in a car and instantly start charging its battery. The product range includes various smart magnetic car mounts with integrated conductive charging and a series of compatible cases and covers for the iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5S, Samsung Galaxy SIII and S4 and the Samsung GalaxyNote 3.
“Finally a mounting and charging solution that is as smart as the phone you mount on it,” says Mr. Ali Kaynar, Sales Director for Mountr. “Placing your phone on these mounts is so easy; you can do it with just one hand. There is no need to re-connect any cable to your phone as the cable is connected to the mount. As soon as you place the phone on the mount, the charging starts. That is what you call convenient.”
Due to a lack of convenient mounting and charging solutions for cars, until now most phones seem to end up in coffee cup holders while on a road trip. Mountr helps to reclaim that coffee cup holder, by offering a mounting and charging solution that’s as easy as placing a phone in that coffee cup holder.
The ‘MOUNT. CHARGE. AND GO!’ series includes two different compact and robust car mounts. Both models are equipped with a unique magnetic mounting system which aligns the phone in perfect landscape or portrait position. This is combined with an embedded conductive charging system.
The Suction Cup Mount comes with a super sticky polyurethane micro-adhesive gel pad on the suction cup enabling solid mounting on a wide variety of flat surfaces including most dashboards.
The Air Vent Mount can be locked on air vents with horizontal vanes and offers a perfect alternative for those regions where mounting on windshields or dashboards is not allowed.
Each mount is shipped complete with a 2.1A dual port USB car charger and a high performance flat USB cable to connect the mount to the charger.
For the Samsung Galaxy SIII, S4 and Note 3 Mountr provides a series of stylish and protective battery covers which replace the original cover on the phone, making it fully compatible with the Mountr solution. For the iPhone 4/4S and the iPhone 5/5S Mountr offers matching cases, which offer both protection and full compatibility with the Mountr solution. All Mounter cases and covers are made from a blend of strong polycarbonate with ABS and are enhanced with various finishes, including aircraft grade anodized aluminum.
