These adjustable smartphone mounts have a FreeFlow Design:

These vent mounts feature a patent-pending open design that lets air flow through. It’s the first smartphone mount of its kind. The Scosche Fresche mounts also have the option of a swing-arm that lets you move your phone away from the vent and adjust to a position that is most convenient for you. So these mounts aren’t your standard, clip-on smartphone holders. They move, bend, and can adapt to height. You can push it away when you don’t need your smartphone or pull it towards you when you do.

You can choose magnetic or universal mount types

When it comes to the mount type, you’ve got a choice. Scosche gives you the option of a magnetic or universal grip. The Magnetic grips use 100% device-safe Neodymium magnets and both versions come in either regular or swing-arm versions. No matter the model you choose, you won’t have to worry about your phone slipping out of the holder with these, fail-proof grips. Both models also feature 360-degree adjustable heads for a variety of viewing options. So you’ll be able to see your screen horizontally, vertically or at any angle you want while you drive. This is the ultimate gadget for people who drive a lot for work.

Pick your scent

Now, back to that stinky car. These smartphone vent mounts attach to the air vents in your vehicle and use the air circulating to perfume your vehicle. As for the fragrances, Scosche has developed its own, specially-designed aromas to keep your car smelling great. Options include new car, leather, peppermint, vanilla, lemon, cherry, tropical, and pine. So you really can have that new car scent again or any fragrance that you like. And it’s true that a scent can boost your and your passengers’ moods. So these car fresheners should keep everyone happy. Also, the air freshener cartridges fit all Scosche Fresche mounts and last for 30 days. That’s an entire month of a fresh-smelling car.

Finally, the company website notes that The Fresche Scent Club, an auto-ship option for replacement cartridges, is coming soon. An air-freshener whose pods you never have to think about? Sign us up!  Truly, the Scosche Fresh vent mounts are more convenient than a home air freshener.

What we love about the Scosche Fresche Smartphone Mounts

We love a smartphone holder that also keeps cars smelling fresh. The adjustable 360-degree positioning and magnetic grip are also huge pluses. There is also a variety of scents to choose from, from new car to lemon and we’d be interested in trying them all. The company website also says that it will soon sell Qi Wireless Charging Fresche Mounts, something we’re sure we’ll love even more.

What we’d love to see

It’s difficult to improve on such a handy product that also has wireless charging in the works. However, it might be interesting it the company experimented with different types of materials for the holder. For the moment, the design is black plastic. Perhaps a more upscale material and some more color options could provide more customization options for people who want to go beyond plain black.

The Scosche Fresche smartphone mounts cost $19.99 on the Scosche website.
