SCOSCHE Industries Announces Availability of New Extendo Telescoping Phone Mounts

OXNARD, CA (07.31.2020) – SCOSCHE Industries has announced the arrival of three new extended reach phone mounts for vehicle, home or office use.

First introduced at the 2020 International CES, the Extendo range of mounts have a telescoping arm that adjusts from just over 5 inches to just over 8.5 inches with 220-degrees of angle adjustment. They all have a 360-degree adjustable head that lets you view your device in portrait, landscape, or any position in between. Extendo has a StickGrip adhesive mount pad and suction-cup mount base that secures to any surface. Once the base is in place, you can extend and angle the mount to your perfect viewing angle and then use the lock-nuts to secure it.

For in-vehicle use, you can easily mount your Extendo to the window or dash and adjust the arm and head to suit either the driver or the passenger, without having to move the base. They are especially useful in vintage vehicles, or large vehicles with deeper dashboards, but work equally well in compact cars too.

For home use you can attach your Extendo to a countertop or backsplash and adjust it so that you can view a recipe, or facetime with a friend, all while you’re cooking dinner. In the office you can attach the base to your desktop, away from your keyboard and monitor and then simply extend it when you need to use your phone.

These new mounts come in magnetic, universal grip, and wireless charging options, as follows:

MagicMount Pro Extendo Window/Dash Mount

The multi-award-winning MagicMount magnetic mounting system with powerful 100% device-safe Neodymium magnets securely holds your device.

QuickGrip Extendo Universal Window/Dash Mount

The adjustable arms of this universal mount securely hold smartphones up to 3.5” wide.

MagicGrip Auto-Grip Wireless Charging Extendo Window/Dash Mount

When the Qi-charging coil in your phone is aligned with the MagicGrip charger, the MagicGrip automatically closes its motorized arms to hold your device securely while it wirelessly charges.

Qi-certified, the MagicGrip charges your Qi-enabled phone at its fastest and safest rate and supports Apple, Samsung and Google fast charge.

SCOSCHE Industries Introduces 6 Models of MagicMount Fresche 2-in-1 Phone Mount / Air Freshener

LAS VEGAS, NV (01.07.2020) – SCOSCHE has introduced Fresche, a new line of mounts designed for drivers who like a safe, uncluttered and fresh-smelling vehicle.

Most states now have hands-free driving laws, so a stable and reliable phone mount is a necessity. Many drivers also enjoy having a clean fresh-smelling vehicle. We found an elegant solution to fulfill both of those needs. Fresche is a range of vent mounts, with a selection of different mounting heads, including: magnetic, universal mount, and fast wireless charging. Fresche mounts not only securely hold your phone, but also hold an air freshener cartridge that uses the airflow from your vehicle’s vent to release fragrance throughout your vehicle.

The MagicMount Fresche utilizes Scosche’s patent pending FreeFlow vent mount design that has an open circular design and an articulated swing-arm. This arm lets you move your phone away from the vent in any direction, while the base remains securely anchored there. The FreeFlow design proved to be the perfect vehicle for housing an air freshener cartridge and harnessing the airflow to disperse the scent.

Fresche mounts incorporate all of the features of Scosche’s multi-award-winning, tried and trusted MagicMount line. All Fresche mount models use the same replaceable air freshener cartridges that are available in a variety of scents, including “New Car Scent.”

The Fresche range of mounts also features non-magnetic, universal mounts (shown above).

“We know that many Scosche customers are true car enthusiasts who like
to drive a clean fresh vehicle, so we’re forming a Fresche refill subscription service. Members of this Fresche Club will be confident that “smelling good” is a constant attribute of their vehicles.”

MagicMount Fresche vent mounts will be available March, 2020, starting at an MSRP of $19.99. Qi Wireless Charging Fresche mounts will be available June, 2020 starting at an MSRP of $54.95.
