Sick of balancing your smartphone over your speedometer while navigating Google Maps or Waze? There’s a more comfortable (and safer) way to do things when you’re on the go, but sometimes you get tired of fiddling with cell phone holders that constantly slip, loosen, or come loose.

Right now, Amazon has slashed prices on WizGear phone mounts, both magnetic and grip style, just in time for the holiday season. Thousands of customers say these rugged car accessories have such a strong grip that they can handle “the meanest potholes” and “even the bumpiest roads”. They make a great stocking stuffer and if you find one today it will arrive before Christmas!

WixGear magnetic car holder for phone

$15$20Save $5

One of the reasons customers are attracted to WizGear phone holders is the fact that these gadgets don’t use the kind of suction cup that tends to suck…but not in a good way. Instead of sticking to your vehicle’s dashboard, these mounts clip onto your car’s air vents or stick to your dashboard with a magnetic force – and stay put no matter how rocky the road gets.

Just attach the rubber base of this mount to your car’s air vent and lock it in place, with the confidence that it will stay strong as you wind, weave and twist. Then attach the included magnet to the back of your phone or inside your phone case, then place your phone on the ultra-powerful magnetic mount, which you can rotate and swivel to your heart’s content. That base does not change. Today it is 51 percent off.

“This is by far one of the best magnetic mounts I’ve used,” one customer wrote. “It’s very snappy and the magnetic grip is strong enough… that running over the nastiest potholes won’t stop this magnet from ever dropping your phone, let alone slipping it out of its default orientation. “

The universal accessories will work with any iPhone or Android phone you have, but instead of taking up space on your air vent, they use a small, powerful magnetic base to attach to the dashboard. Today this set is 46 percent off.

I don’t know how we ever lived without it!” wrote one impressed customer. “Georgia has the new hands-free law, so we needed a way to make phone calls or use navigation without actually holding the phone in our hands or on our laps… You can mount this anywhere. I have mine right by the handlebars at just the right angle and distance from me. I can make calls on speakerphone or Bluetooth without ever touching the phone. It is awesome.”

WixGear car cup holder phone holder

$22$34Save $12

This innovative phone holder fits in any car cup holder. Simply insert the base into the cup holder and turn the knob and the base will gradually expand into the cup holder for a perfectly secure fit.

Not in magnetic mounts? This WizGear gadget has rubberized grips that wrap around your phone and hold it securely as you would hold it in your hand, without scratching or damaging the phone itself. A 360-degree adjustable base can be attached to your car’s cup holder and locked in place, then you can not only rotate the phone, but also hold it in landscape or portrait mode.

“I had previously purchased a cell phone holder that attached to the heater/AC vents but found that this mounting application obscured my view of several controls, so I purchased this phone holder that fits into one of my cup holders,” one customer wrote . “This is a perfect application for me. Having the phone lower and not blocking my view of various controls is much more important to me than losing a single cup holder.”

Of course, if you have Amazon Prime, you get free shipping. not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your 30-day free trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
