The magnetic cable charger for the Sony Z3 Xperia compact does none of the above, but is simple to use, no more popping off the waterproof cover to charge your phone; leave it in place and the waterproofness intact as you simply clip the magnetic charger to the side and that's it really!!!
Phone charged, hassle gone - I hope you weren't expecting more because that is all there is to it, universal USB one end and magnetic clip the other.
Now I can't find my phone; but I can't really blame that on the charger!!!
The cable only attaches in one direction, because of the polarity of the magnets, for me that is with the cable pointing down on the device, when you try t attach it the other way it doesn't latch properly.
The only "weakness" of the product comes from the magnetic connection, it doesn't hold so if you connect it in your car or in your bag to a portable battery pack be prepared that the cable will come off.
Whenever I connect this to my phone by the time I've put it down, 9 times out of 10 it has disconnected. Just the weight of the cable is enough to overcome the magnet and it disconnects.
What's worse is that on the few occasions that it does stay connected the slightest nudge or vibration will dislodge it. Was late for work the first time because it disconnected itself overnight and my alarm failed to go off because the phone was dead!
What is the point of a charger that won't stay connected?
Don't waste your money.
When available that magnetic charger cable?
The magnetic connection can be a little weak, which means bumping it disconnects the charger, but overall I think it's a good item and I'd happily buy another.
not worth the money.
But you can't really use the phone while charging it because it doesn't stick very well. It is a little flimsy, and the magnet doesn't stay in place very well. I don't know if other brands do the same.
And what I didn't know is that the charge is less efficient when using a magnetic charger rather than USB. The phone loses its charge quickly between 100%-85%, then stabilize to normal after that.
Anyway, it is better than opening the waterproof flaps of the Xperia Z3 phone all the time.
Plus you don't have to keep opening the tab where the USB port is located.
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
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.
Hard to clip on and comes of all too easy if you move the phone.
This product is a must for all Z1-2-3 uses a must have.
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.
This has got be the best charging cable
I have ever bought . . . Enough said
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.
Charges ok once it is connected.
Not entirely satisfied with this.
Pulled it out of the USB point - the casing disjoined. Poor quality glue. Some strands of the wire are not soldered on properly either
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.
Recommend this to all folks who have Sony Xperia Z1....
I HAVE NOT RECIEVED MY PRODUCT YET!
I imagine the product is great, I want it. I would suggest buying it somewhere else just because MobileFun harasses their customers
