Using mophie charge force vent mount

I currently use 5 charge force wireless charging bases of mophie along with the charge force battery case around my iphone 7.

I'd love to keep using these charging bases with my iphone x. Charging is no problem but magnetic holding and automatic positioning did not work. I've already found a solution so that the iPhone x stays on the wireless charger: I placed 2 metal rounds between the back of my iphone x and the original iphone x leather folio.It hangs on the charging base and charges but automatic positioning does not work. I suspect that in the original battery case, 4 round magnets are built in to enable automatic positioning. My question: Has anyone ever disassemble a charge force battery case from mophie to know the exact position and size of these magnets ?

I already found a shop where you can buy these magnets in all sizes but I think the size and position is important to not disturb the wireless charging

Is this a good question?

You shouldn't need to open the case to locate the magnets inside. A bunch of small steel washers should do the trick lay them out on the surface and shift the battery side to side, the magnets should grab them and then you can mark the placement with a marker through the holes.

thank you Dan, I did something similar, I put up a sheet of paper and sprinkled iron filings on it. so I already got a good idea of ​​the location but not the size and whether there were 1 or more magnets. In the end, I could not resist the temptation to look for the location of the magnets. I made a hole in the back of the casing and found the first magnet, square 10 to 10mm, the next along the width with a gap of 4mm and another configuration 54mm further along the long side

so... what did you build to solve this problem?

I'd love to see your finished... thing.

I just got an iPhone 8 and have the same issue.

Was going to get a buddy to 3d-print me something to clip around the charge force vent mount so I wouldn't need the magnet to position things.

Thanks,

Craig

I know mophie sells a clear plastic case with magnets already for the iPhone 7 Plus & 8 Plus.

It’s called the Mophie Base Case for iPhone 7 Plus and 8 Plus. Since I don’t use the case anymore and it was somewhat broken i decided to harvest the magnets from that and place them in my silicon iPhone X case using the above picture measurements printed at 75%. I then used a heat gun to heat up the inner black cover that hid the magnets and peeled it back. Once the magnets are exposed you can apply pressure from the back to force them up along with the tape.

Then all I did was use the template to position them and put the silicon case back on. I have tested it with both base charger and Mophie Car Vent Mount and was successful on both for charging. Will test the Desk Mount later in the week, but it should work fine.

Thanks for this Post.
