works but only just
it charges the phone but falls off way too easily. when the battery is fully charged, it malfunctions and the charging goes on and off. not worth the money.

No so good
The cable is not held very strongly to the phone and will fall out quite easily if you move the phone about.

Recommended if you have a cover
This magnetic charger cable is highly recommended if you have a copy for your Z3 Compact as you may have trouble accessing the charging port otherwise. Plus you don't have to keep opening the tab where the USB port is located. Good stuff!

Perfect Magnetic charging cable
So wrong that I had to keep removing cover to charge mobile phone. This cable fixed that problem. Just the perfect amount of magnetic power. Holds well and not too strong magnet. Perfect cable. Great service, quick delivery and great customer service from Mobile Fun. Would definitely buy from here again. Thank you.

Isn't a bad charging cable
To be honest this isn't a bad charging cable so long as you don't move your phone at all,I mean done even nudge it or it will come off charge. Don't expect a speedy charge either cause it isn't going to happen with this cable.

Broke fast
It worked okay for a couple of weeks though it charged extremely slowly. It then stopped working; the red charging light on the phone would flash as the connection went on and off. I now have a Sony charging dock, and it works great and charges much faster.

Sony Xperia Z3
Not Good
Ordered two, one for me and one for my partner. Mine would have a stable hold to the device, but would need pushing in a tiny bit more to be able to charge. My partners would charge to 60% and then cut off and would have to be reconnected to finish of charging, we tried this a couple of times and it still happened. We switched chargers and it happened on the other devices. We understand the odd one could be a dodgy but to get two that don't work is a bit rubbish to be honest. I've given it two stars just for the fact it was fast delivery

Sony Z2
Magnetic attachment
The charger is great for just attaching to the Z2 without removing the charging door gate. It is a water resistant phone so the constant removal and replacement of the cover must surely weaken the seal. This way it just clicks on and also easy to remove. A recommended buy. The Sony attachment to be attached to!

Does the job
I was nervous about buying the new magnetic chargers hearing horror stories about the charge port being ripped out by the over-strong magnetic charge so I chose this one. The magnetic charge isn't great so it can be a bit fiddly to get the charger to sit in place. I have a case so I used that to hold the charger in place and the combination works pretty well. I agree with the reviews that say you probably can't take a call while charging because of the above but then with this phone I rarely have this issue to deal with so I'm happy enough

OK but magnet is weak
Well it does the job, the phone charges, but the strength of the magnet is disappointing. It takes a bit of adjusting to get it into place, and you have to be careful to not jog the cable when you are putting the phone down. It's possible but not easy to use the phone while it's charging - if the cable loses its slack or if you touch it, it will detach. Still slightly better than having to undo the flap every time you charge, but only just.

Great idea.
I looked at the desktop version by Sony, but thought it restricted my use. I have only used the cable once and it charged just as fast as the usb with less hassle. no issues with connection failure, great magnet.

The cables were exactly as described and just what I required, I now have 1 in the house, 1 in the car and 1 in the caravan. Hopefully my phone will never run flat. Delivered earlier than expected.

Works well
Sony Xperia Z2 - Better than the docking station as it works without removing your protective case. The docking station fits only Z2 alone or Z2 with a limited number of cases, and no way to figure this out without using one. So buy this rather than the dock if in doubt. The cable is only 1metre long so it will only just make it to the middle of a bedside table, and would be better if it were 1.5 metres to allow a little more movement when plugged in. Charging, fit with/without case, and magnetic hold is fine, and cable is well constructed. The advantage of this cable is that it is small and easy to transport, and you do not have to open the waterproof USB cover on the Z series to charge. Buy 2 not one, as you will need one for the car too (though because it is side mounted you may not be able to connect the cable and fit your phone in the car mount at the same time), and a second cable will give you a back up when you loose the first.

sony xperia z3
great concept, but not perfect
The one thing that Sony could do is to follow the Apple concept of the magnetic connectors as used on Apple's macbook products, clearly a difficult task given Apple's litigious nature, but not impossible. The magnetic connector on the Sony Z3 uses two small plastic holes that engage with two mouldings on the connector. Neither the moulding or the holes engage firmly enough to provide a good solid connection if you want to use the phone and charge at the same time. The slightest movement of the causes the connector to move and charging stops. I've also noticed that if the connector isn't fully and properly engaged the 3G signal will drop until the connector is completely engaged. If you want to charge your phone whilst leaving it on the desk, bedside cabinet or work surface without having to remove the charging port cover, this cable works perfectly and i do still recommend it even with the above limitations as I have found that the micro usb socket isn't long lasting on previous Samsung products; and I didnt like the idea of repeatedly removing the charging cover to plug the phone in as I feel the waterproof seal will fail as a result.

Not worth of money. It would be ok for 1,99€, but you would expect to have good quality product at this price rate. Strong advice to dodge this one. Hard to clip on and comes of all too easy if you move the phone.

Sony Z2
Excellent Product
Avoids the problem of the port covers getting loose from constant opening and closing, improving it's water resistance. Make sure you use it the right way up. Is a bit of a pain with the flip case as you have to leave it open to access the connection point but this is the same for the standard charger. It is difficult to use the phone whilst connected as the magnetic connection is not strong enough to keep the charger in place so it falls off. Be aware this is just the cable and not a whole charger, you must use the original plug.

It worked very well even with a case on and saves fiddling with the flap. However after 10 months use with the original Sony charging block it no longer charges because it doesn't connect any more, which is disappointing as it should still be under guarantee, but difficult to send back when mail order. At that price it should last for 5 years not less than a year. 5 star for convenience but 1 star for durability despite careful handling and almost no travel.

Pretty weak magnet
Unfortunately the magnet lets this down. It's pretty weak and likely to disconnect from the phone if you try to move/use it while charging. It charges fine when connected though, and can be plugged into a PC or a USB-to-mains plug adapter (like the one included with these phones). If you intend to use this overnight on a bedside table or somewhere where you won't need to touch the phone, it's fine.

Simple charging without removing from case
Most cases don't allow use of the docking station but this gets around that problem, allowing the simplicity of using the magnetic charging strip, rather than removing the waterproof flap and plugging in the usb cable for every charge.

A godsend
This cable is a godsend. No more fiddling about in the dark with the covered charging port on the side of the phone. A reassuring click when the connector makes contact and you know you're good to go. And no more being yanked back when walking off with your phone while it's still plugged into the wall socket. Highly recommended.

This is not the best item - I thought it would snap on well like in the picture. It does not and is a bit loose so if i move my phone it either snaps off or loses connection. Charges ok once it is connected. Not entirely satisfied with this.

Not Recommended
This product is not very good, it tends to fall off the charging points on the phone if you knock it when it is connected. If the magnets were stronger it would probably be OK.

Sony Xperia Ultra
Works as intended
Charges the phone noticeably more quickly than using the micro USB cable so will only need to use that now for file transfer. The magnet isn't as strong as I had hoped so once docked you need to leave the phone alone or it will fall off although it does seem to find 'home' very easily with no fiddling. Overall very pleased.

Must have for Z1 compact
I recently bought a Z1 compact and have been impressed with it. The magnetic charging cable I purchased from MobileZap to accompany my phone has allowed me to keep my phone in it's wallet case while charging. This means my phone can remain protected while charging and the micro USB port cover won't loosen over time from constant access to charge. This should help maintain my phone's water resistance longer as the ports are rarely accessed. I think that the cable could be longer and sometimes the connections can be fiddly to position right but other than that I have been happy.

Weak magnet and charging...
I was so hoping it would work properly but sadly if the phone gets to weak or powers off it will never charge it? and some time it charges then shuts down like if it made the phone crash ... i am a backpacker and was really hoping for this to work easily ... it feels like maybe Sony put a chip in the phone(charger) to stop other company to copy there charger, i have the real Sony product and its so fast and great but not compact since its a docking system ... hope this helps !!!

Good piece of kit
Bought this for my wife's phone (I'm jealous now) It is just the right length to reach from power point to phone holder, clicks on after a little wiggle, I thought the magnets would pull it straight into correct alignment but its close so only need move slightly to feel it jump together. Connection good enough to survive speed bumps & potholes! Bit pricey.

Very low charging current
i have had this cable now for a few days and and not happy with it. I have an Xperia Z1and for some reason it charges very slowly regardless of the charger that it is plugged into and that includes the sony charger. it takes roughly 3 times longer to fully charge the phone compared with the standard micro usb cable. i also have a genuine sony charging dock that uses the same charger connection and it charges at 1200ma or more compared with 250-350ma that this cable can achieve. maybe it has a false or maybe it is designed to work with the older Z. build quality is ok, it has a nice rubberized cable router and the magnet seems strong enough. the phone end of the cable though does not work with 2 of my cases as the opening in the case is not large enough to accommodate the plug, but that's probably a fault with the cases self i would say.
