Looking back to November of 2014, we had taken a look at Patriot’s magnetic charging case that you slap on your iPhone 5 and 5s. Well since Patriot’s visit to CES they have released a number of additions to their FUEL ion case, which allow you to charge your iPhone in different ways. This review is an extension to our past post, as it showcases the FUEL ion’s accessories.
FUEL ION MAGNETIC CHARGING CASE
The Patriot FUEL ion magnetic charging case for iPhone is available for not only the iPhone 5, but also the iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5, as well as the Note 3. This protective case utilizes neodymium technology to securely charge the phone by simply placing it on an appropriate charging base or pad. We encourage you to read through our Patriot FUEL ion Overview for a closer look!
WELCOMING PATRIOT TO YOUR CAR
One of the accessories we have the privilege to look at today is the Patriot FUEL ion car mount.
The box showcases the magnetic charging car mount and inside the box you will find the charging pad, USB car lighter adapter, as well as a base in case you didn’t want to mount it on your windshield and would prefer it on the dash.
This mount can easily be installed anywhere on any windshield, which is perfect if you would like to mount the device horizontally as a GPS. Even better yet, you can quickly plop the device onto the mount with one hand as the magnet secures the device.
Enabling the car charging pad, simply plug the supplied usb cable into the button of the pad and the other end into the USB car charger outlet.
We were amazed at the security of the suction by the mount! When you first pull the car mount out of the box and pull off the plastic protection, you immediately feel a stickiness that doesn’t leave any residue. We felt very comfortable mounting our iPhone 5s in the mount!
The car charging aspect of the Patriot’s FUEL ion magnetic charging ecosystem is available on Amazon for $49.99.
