'Anker PowerWave 7.5 Car Mount' review that can charge wirelessly to smartphone even while driving

From January 11, 2019, Anker PowerWave 7.5 Car Mount has been added to Anker's lineup known for mobile batteries and quick chargers. Anker's first car charger can fix the smart phone firmly by the simple installation just inserting it into the air vent of the car air conditioner, and wireless charging that does not need to connect the cable directly to the smart phone is possible, it is actually I tried to use it.

◆ Appearance review
The package of 'Anker PowerWave 7.5 Car Mount' is designed based on white and blue.

When I opened the package, the body was contained in a box like this.

This is the place I took out the contents. Contents are the main body of 'Anker PowerWave 7.5 Car Mount', replacement 3-sided handle, USB cable, and instruction manual.

It looks like this when compared with the iPhone XS Max with a long side of about 157mm. iPhone XS Max is the largest model of the current iPhone, but it seems to be able to be installed without any problems.

At the bottom of the unit there is a Micro-USB port for connecting the unit and the car.

Turn the knob on the back of the body to the left to loosen it ...

You can extend and contract the legs to support from below when the smartphone is installed vertically.

Press the release button on the side of the body to open the arm.

You can set the wireless charging coil in the center of the smartphone to overlap the mark of the cross, if you close the arm.

The claw for attaching the charger body to the air conditioner vent is shaped like a beak.

When the knob is raised and it is turned to the other side, the beak is closed and the body is firmly fixed to the fin of the vent.

See the following movie to see how the connection between the charger body and the claw is crawling.

At first the claw is locked firmly.

The connection can be moved by loosening the rotation knob to the left.

Make the angle up ...

Move down.

Since you can use your smartphone sideways if you twist it to the side, you can use the car navigation function of the smartphone while charging while driving a car.

Also, since the claw can be replaced with a three-sided handle that supports the main body at three points in this way, the fins of the vent may be thin or move easily, and the smartphone can not be held by the claw alone. Can also respond.

In addition, since a car charger for supplying power from a car's cigarette lighter is not included, it must be prepared in advance. This time I use '

Anker PowerDrive 2 '.

When I actually charged the iPhone XS Max from 0%, I was able to charge up to 80% in about 3 hours. Even if the car charger did not support

Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 , it could be charged at a sufficiently practical speed, so anyone who wants faster wireless charging should be able to meet their needs by using a Quick Charge 3.0 compatible car charger is.

'Anker PowerWave 7.5 Car Mount' does not have to connect a USB cable to a smartphone, and can attach and charge a smartphone much more smoothly than a regular car holder, so people who have many opportunities to drive a car can charge wirelessly You can benefit from it. On the other hand,

wireless charging has also been reported to cause battery deterioration faster than wired charging , so driving during heating in the winter and driving in harsh environments such as in a car during midsummer may be difficult. I want to be careful about charging.
