Any good recommendations for MagSafe car vent mount?

So Belkin just released a car vent mount for MagSafe, but it’s plastic, doesn’t charge, and it’s a whopping $40.

Does anybody have any really good recommendations? In another thread somebody mentioned this mount, but the Amazon reviews for it are quite bad.

And this one doesn’t even have a single review yet.

Do you need it all in one device?

I’ve been extremely happy using this vent mount for the past 5 years:

You can probably clip it to your phone in a place that doesn’t interfere with a MagSafe charger.

Thanks, @Shamino, but I already have one of those. I just find it a bit of a hassle to wedge the phone in there and then also connect a cable. I was expecting MagSafe would do away with all that and turn the whole process into a simple click.

From what I’ve been able to find, I’d say the market just isn’t quite there yet, but I’m sure savvy TidBITS readers have found more offers than I’ve seen so far. Hoping somebody might have already discovered something nice.

This one here is getting really good reviews. It’s very moderately priced, especially factoring in that it comes with cable and PD+QC 3.0 charger.

It’s on sale right now for $25. Reviews sound very good. Folks say it apparently even holds their Max in place. Not sure I quite believe that, but it bodes well for my mini. I like that even at that price it comes with a dual-port 15W charger and appropriate USB A-C cable. I ordered it. I’ll report back when I’ve tested it.

On a side note, any reason why it seems next to impossible to get a 1ft A-C cable in gray/black? Apparently people want 2 or 3 or even 5 at a time. I’d like to get just one. But next to nothing on Amazon or Newegg. WTH? :frowning:

Don’t know the reason for the scarcity, but Monoprice has become my go-to able source. They have a 1.5ft in stock. Monoprice Palette Series USB 2.0 Type-C to Type-A Charge & Sync Nylon-Braid Cable, 6ft, Blue -
