Default s4 Car Mount with Cover & spare battery

Hi All

I have the samsung S4 and have to say I love it!

Does anybody have any suggestions for a car mount that can be used with the s-view cover open, ie: folded over the rear of the phone please?

Also what are the best spare batteries to get for it?

Thanks

PJB

Hi PJB

I moved your thread to the correct S4 forum for you.

As for the battery, have you registered your phone with Samsung? You can get a 50% off coupon and use it to buy a battery.

Thanks Atma, unfortunately it seems this offer is only for you lucky ones in the US! Also I cannot find my model code, phone says GT-19505 but this is not on the registration drop down!

I recently started using this car mount. It's actually pretty great. The magnet holds through my spigen slim case so I assume it would hold through the flip cover folded back. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B008IOQ3K6/ref=redir_mdp_mobile/188-7486177-9845640

I bought the standard anker 2600 battery, works exactly like the OEM so I keep a spare in my car though I never have needed it yet but I know ill need it when I take the kids to disney in august.


As for the car mount, the one I bought is pretty simple but it sticks with a washable really sticky rubber ring AND has suction cup mount so it does pretty well...it was only 9 bucks shipped when I bought it and now its 20...so must have gotten popular

Here's a video I took from the phone mount during my autocross...so..yeah..if it can hold up here itll be fine for most folks ;-)

I also use the iMagnet mount. There is room under the battery door to put the metal plate. I can feel where the plate is on my Neo Hybrid, but it's not all that noticeable. It's definitely not as strong of a hold as with a naked phone, but it's still plenty strong enough with the case. So you should be able to just fold the cover to the back and put the phone on the iMagnet and the cover will stay closed.

I've probably had the mount for almost a year, and I can't say enough good about it. And to get it out of the way, the magnet won't mess up your phone. But there's no convincing some people, so I'm not going to argue with someone that says otherwise.

I'd also recommend the anker battery, Amazon has them for 22 which includes two batteries and a charger for them :-) I don't think in alone, but I feel I sometimes get better battery life that the Samsung original! I've also only charged up the one just now as It has pretty much been enough :-)

I use the iGrip Vehicle Dock. I've used it with smart phones ranging in screen size from 3 inc. to 5 inc. screen. I currently have an SGS4 w/Outterbox Commuter case and it fits without a problem. Here is a link of various types.
