A Magnetic Car Mount damage your Smartphone

Magnetic Car Mount

The Magnet has been exceptionally helpful since the day it was discovered. 

From it’s humble beginnings as a compass, used to show the right direction so that we didn’t get lost, through to the amazing and incredible inventions of today, MRI body scanners, next-generation electric cars, even maglev floating trains and of course the magnetic phone mount which securely holds your smartphone and charges it whilst driving, each one dependent on magnets to work.

Purchasing a new car mount, you want to know everything about it, especially if it is the type of a car mount that has appeared not so long ago. Forums are loaded with threads asking whether magnetic car mounts would damage their phones indicating the rising popularity of these type of mounts and concerns that they evoke. The time has come to finally dispel all the doubts as to this subject.

Magnetic Car Mount


One of the most frequent questions , whether a magnetic car mount would wipe a phone. 
No, it will not for one simple reason. Internal components of a phone are made out of non-magnetic materials, therefore a magnet cannot disturb their work. 
But what about the memory, you'd ask? Well, phones do not have HDDs (Hard disk drives) which use magnetic field to store information. On the contrary, phones hold storage chips, which are a type of flash memory, and which are not affected by magnets. 
There are mentions on forums that iPods can be affected by a magnet. But that concerns only iPod Classic, which use Hard Disk Drives.Other mobile devices use flash memory and should not be worried about. 



Remember those old big screens that would hum when working? They formed an image by deflecting a finely focus beam of electrons with magnetic fields. Thus, an external magnetic field interfered with the magnetic field, which was necessary to create an image. Today's phone screens use electricity to form and image and respond to interaction. Therefore a magnet does not pose any danger to smartphone's screen.



As I previously mentioned, the only time that the speaker would only be affected is if you were making a call otherwise it has no impact.  Likewise, when you put your phone on the magnetic mount, the magnetic field is small and located near the center of the phone, whereas the speakers are located on the edges and therefore not affected by the magnetic field.


cell phone signal

Here’s a quick explanation of how your phone actually makes calls and it’s pretty amazing really.


So, you call up your friend who lives in a completely different city and immediately, your phone is converting the sound from your voice hitting the microphone into a digital signal which is then transmitted as radio waves across the cellular network and at the other end, the signal is converted back into sound by your friend’s phone and played out through the speaker all in the blink of an eye and without any noticeable lag.  If you are familiar with walkie-talkies or CB radio you will have a good idea of what I mean.


In brief, your phone signal is transmitted through a massive network of cell towers and these kinds of radio waves are unaffected by minor magnetic fields.


The Bottom Line

Magnets come in all shapes and sizes, different powers, strengths and they have so many uses.


We rely on magnets so much that some things would not work without them and the magnetic smartphone car mount is one such device, simple, yet reliant on magnets, but not all mounts are the same.


Most magnetic phone mounts on the market use small magnets that won’t really damage your phone’s circuits or functionality.  The speakers, screen, GPS, cell signal are impervious to magnetic interference, and the compass will recover as soon as the interference is removed.


However, some mounts are better engineered than others, careful placement of the magnets can ensure that your smartphone is secure and the wireless charging is not affected.


The testing of the MagMount Qi proves that careful and clever engineering ensures that the phone is secure and that all functionality works as expected. you have the perfect combination, the best-looking case and car mount, the strongest protection and secure connection between the smartphone and the mount and no ugly stick on metal plates anywhere to be seen.


Cases with magnets

Finally it should be mentioned that some cases use magnets to turn on and off features on a phone, for example a screen on Samsung or iPad. The magnet in a car mount will not affect such functionality.

I hope that after reading this article you feel more assured about using a magnetic car mount and will be free of any doubts purchasing one.
