Just Mobile Highway Max and Xtand Vent Review

Just Mobile Highway Max and Xtand Vent Review

We check out a car charger and phone cradle from Just Mobile…

The name says it all really, and accessories company Just Mobile deal with just that.

Today we cast our eyes over a couple of their in-car products the Highway Max car charger and Xtand Vent phone mount.

Pretty standard affair it seems from the outset but these two products have just that little bit extra.

Available with either a micro-USB or lightning cable, the Highway Max phone charger is a 12V dual port charger capable of charging two devices simultaneously.

Not only that but it does it with a 2.4 amp output, an increase on most chargers in the marketplace.

Just Mobile Highway Max and Xtand Vent ReviewThe supplied cable is also coiled for neater storage and extension and the knurled knob on the 12V plug makes it much easier to pull out compared with other rivals.

While you charge your phone you need a place to put it and the Xtand Vent solves that need.

It is a vent mounted phone cradle which slots onto most air conditioning vent blades.

But there are a couple of characteristics that make the Xtand superior to other similar models.

I’ve often found with other products, they may be versatile and fit any vent but you’re still at the mercy of the angle of the vent or the dash.

But the Just Mobile Xtand Vent has made this adjustable with a ball and socket so you can swivel it vertically and horizontally, depending on your orientation, to adjust the screen to your desired angle.

“It won’t stay” you say, well on the back is a tightening knob to lock it into place.

Just Mobile Highway Max and Xtand Vent ReviewOther than these features, the Xtand has two thicknesses for the attachment clip and the bracket expands to one side up to a width of 91mm.

So far these are best charger and phone mounts I’ve come across.

They serve their basic purpose while providing a little more option and freedom.

Both products are priced at $24.95 and are available from the Just Mobile website.
