Didn't work
The magnet is not bloc on the charger so you can't charge your phone.
Convenient charging
Much easier than using the usb cable to charge the phone, and works with a third party case on the phone.
Quick delivery and perfect quality
The charger cable shipped quickly and appears to work perfectly (it is replacing the micro-usb charger since it is loose fitting now on the phone charging slot). It has worked perfectly so far and is easy remove and attach when needed.
Good cable, works well
Great cable, works exactly as said.
Do you like things that make life complicated?
Do you like things that make life complicated because you have too little to do or too much time on your hands, not enough to worry about? Then this IS NOT the product for you.
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!!!
Great product
Charges my ph super fast. Money well spent. Very happy customer.
It works
The magnetic connection ensures you can't break the connector if you grab the phone or it falls off the desk.
Just what I needed
It has a very strong magnet so it won't fall off, but it will happily come away when you grab your mobile.
Works but doesn't stay on well
The charging cable works well, if you put the phone down and just attach the cable it works perfectly fine and just as good as the dock. Cool side effect when using the cable the phone goes into Dock mode and the screen turns which ever way is down, so even if you hold the phone upside down the screen turns.
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.
Awful!
What a pointless product!
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.
works a treat
Yes you need to be gentle when connecting to ensure the pins line up, but after you've done this several times its a doddle, and the phone squawks when it is connected so you know it's OK. The magnet is plenty strong enough to tilt the handset or move it around to see what the incoming call/message is about, then pick up the handset to answer, if the cable falls off so what. Reconnect when you place it down, it's easy enough.
Works fine
Works fine. Magnet is strong enough to keep phone charging if I leave it on my desk. cant realy use phone as movement stops the charging. But thats to be expected with this type of connector.
This product was the solution to my sons problem
This product was the solution to my sons problem with the charge point damaged this is a magnetic charger that can charge your phone if the charge point has failed on you and although it charges slower it does charge so if you have a problem I would advise you to get this as would be cheaper and more cost effective than getting it sent away and after all you can use it again and again
Well done.
Good Customer care. 1 am 100% satisfied purchasing from you. Your materials are of good quality.
Wire Charger
I want this magnetic charger cable...
When available that magnetic charger cable?
Works well
The cable itself works well for my intended use. It means I can charge my Z3 Compact with the gel Bugdroid case still on it, which is perfect.
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.
It's great!
It's handy and convenient, no need to lift the flap for charging.
Very happy
I am very happy with my purches
Excellent
Simple and effective usb cord for magnetic charging port on Xperia z1 compact, worked well with case on and was a good length using on a bedside table
Good bit of kit
Just one thing to say about the cable, it's hard to make contact with phone if you are using a case on the phone but it saves constant use of unplugging the water proof cover.
Quality item as described
I needed a magnetic charging cable for Sony Xperia Compact Z3. The cable is well made and does job. As described by others it's fiddly to get a connection but works with perseverance.
good partner
easy company to deal with and deliver the goods , as described, on time
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.
Ok but not great.
Works well. Feels solid.

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.
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!
Hugely satisfied
Absolutely buzzing. Got it in 4 days and it's working perfectly.
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.
Simple and easy to use
Great cable if you want easy recharge , much better than pulling off the cover for the charging port
Good product
Good product, works well, charge rate is fast.I wish magnet had stronger grip to phone, difficult to use phone without it falling off
Charging cord
Easy to use much better way to charge the phone
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
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!
Great quality. Would recommend.
This is good quality unlike other charger cables purchased in the past.
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
Very Good
I'm very glad with this charging cable, it works good and charges very quickly,even a Sony tablet!
Magnetic charger
The magnet is very strong but it's fidderly to conect and easterly falls off
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.
Works perfect
When I connect it in the car, it automatically starts Google map, ready for navigation. The music player have allready started, connecting via Bluetooth when I started the car.
saone z3
good items
Just works
Saves the usb port from wear and tear and keep the unit watertight also in the future.
good alternative
It is a very good alternative to original charging cable. Easy to connect, don't have to open port lid.
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.
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.
Its perfect charger
Charge is good enough and fits to magnetic joints and connects well. It serves the purpose .
great
Great product
Excellent
Excellent product. Thank you.
Good
Good quality, works well, magnetic not very strong (much less than mac charger) but overall does the job.
charger
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.
MAGNETIC CHARGER
ONCE YOU GET USED TO THIS TYPE OF CHARGER ITS GREAT, IT SAVES YOU HAVING TO OPEN THE WATER RESISTANT ENTRANCE TO THE STANDARD CHARGING PORT, THUS KEEPING YOUR Z3 WATER TIGHT FOR LONGER
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.
Magnetic Charging Cable
This product is just what I wanted.It charges like a dream.No need to open the doors on the phone any more to charge it.
This product is a must for all Z1-2-3 uses a must have.
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.
very handy
highly recommended magnetic charger for xperia z2. no need to open the seal for charging and I can take it anywhere. thanks for ur great service! Kudos!

fantastic item
I find this item really good because you don't have to keep opening the side flap for the original charger. Simply connect to the phone with the magnetic connection. Excellent item.
Magnetic Charging Cable Sony Xperia Z2
I will keep this short and sweet.
This has got be the best charging cable
I have ever bought . . . Enough said
A leading lead
Excellent service and product. An ideal accessory which saves wear and tear on the cover. Works perfectly.
Magnetic Charging Cable. Sony Xperia Z2 /Z1 compact/Z1
I am delighted with the charging cable,it charges my Sony Z2 really fast much quicker than the cable that comes with the phone, I would recommend anyone who has a Sony Xperia Z2 phone to buy one of these cables from mobile fun the best online supplier of everything to do with mobile phones and tablets.
flimsy
The cable itself is good quality but charging the phone is a bit odd.sometimes it works just fine but sometimes disconnects after few seconds and reconects charging.it dose the job in strange ways sometimes but I guess is beter like this then opening the water proof port.not 100% satisfied with it but glad that it works.
Does What It Says It Does!
Simple. Easy to use. Value for money. Does What It Says It Does! Damn good product.
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.
Awesome!
This magnetic charge cable for XPERIAZ2 and Z1 compact is AWESOME! No more fumbling around picking the little flap off the micro USB charge input.... Love it!
works great
Does what it claims and works well, I wouldnt say the magnet is super strong but way better than fumbling around every night to access the charge port.
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.
OK
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.
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.
Great Product
I was a bit sceptical at first but I wasn't able to find the official dock for the Xperia Z1 Compact in stock. This prodcut works just fine not only with the Z1 Compact but even with my Z1. Great product.
Works-Poor Quality.
The cable itself works. Very poor quality thou.

Pulled it out of the USB point - the casing disjoined. Poor quality glue. Some strands of the wire are not soldered on properly either
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.
Works Well
Good Product needs to be fitted carefully to work
excellent product
This charging lead is excellent just line it up with the charging point on the magnet its snaps into place thats it no messing about plugging it in or opening any covers on your phone.
Bad quality product, but works
Please be informed, this is not original product and will not fit so good as shown on product photo. Magnetic end will not fit to phone side really good, it looks odd, loses contact easily, but still works and gives power to Z1 compact.
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.
Magnetic Charger Cable - Awesome!!!
This cable is the best for charging Sony Xperia Z1. I did not like the fact that i had to open the slot all the time to charge my phone.

Recommend this to all folks who have Sony Xperia Z1....
buy somewhere else
I am writing this review because this is the second time mobile fun has asked me to.

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
Perfect Magnetic Charger
This is made with good quality and works perfectly. Just plug in and hook it up to the phone. If you don't want to open the charging cover all the time this is the best solution.
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.
Magnetic Charging Cable for Sony Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra
Cable is a great option if you do not want to use the USB port.Once connected, you have the same options available as when you connect the sony dock station.Definitely easier and faster to charge the phone using the magnetic cable and delivery is on time great job mobilefun.
