on 2016-12-29 my bf had a casemate flip folio case with card slots that also charged his phone and loved the idea of it
These magnets are fairly strong and work for what I purchased them for. I came up with an odd configuration for my bf's iPhone 6s: my bf had a casemate flip folio case with card slots that also charged his phone and loved the idea of it. He could rid himself of his wallet and not have to worry about how charged his phone was all at the same time. Unfortunately, the tip of the lighting charging tip broke off inside his charging port and the case because just a wallet that kinda sorta holds the phone in place - backward if you want a protective case on the phone for times when it is outside of the folio case.
So I was on a mission to find a replacement for his charging folio/wallet case for his birthday in October. The trouble was they don't exist, so I had to make one.
I got him a:
-Dreem folio case ([...])Dreem iPhone 6/6s Wallet Case with Detachable SlimCase, Fibonacci Luxury Series, Vegan Leather, RFID Protection, 2 Kickstands, Gift Box - Black
-Smaiphone Ultra Slim Battery Charging Case ([...])IPhone 6s Battery Case, IPhone 6 Battery Case Charger, Smaiphone Ultra Slim External Protective Battery Juice Power Bank Charger 2500mAh for Standard Apple iPhone 6/6S 4.7 Inch (Black)
-and this magnetic plate with an adhesive on the backTechMatte® MagGrip Metal Plate Replacement Kit for Magnetic Universal Car Mount
The Dreem filio case has a detachable phone case the makes you phone stick because it is magnetic. The Smaiphone battery case is extremely thin, so i took a chance to see if it would fit in the Dreem folio case. When he opened all of these on his bday he was really excited, he used one of th elarger rectangular magnets on the outside of the back of the Smaiphone batttery case and it was able to stick to the Dreem folio case. So I can't speak tot he intended functionality of these replacement magnets, but I can say they are strong and able to keep his phone in place no matter which way you flip the phone - though I would like it if they were slightly stronger, hence the withholding of one of the stars.

This was a great purchase. I had to have my iPhone battery replaced. The frame that is attached to my iPhone 6 that allows me to digiscope birds, goes around the perimeter of the phone. So the back of the phone is exposed. When Apple replaced the battery and had to remove the back, of course that destroyed the plate. The first time I attached the TechMatte replacement rectangular plate, it didn't hold, but then I realized there was still some adhesive residue from the original plate left on my phone. Once I thoroughly removed all traces of the residue, the new plate stuck perfectly. I'm very pleased with this purchase, and I love that I have some extras!

I have a vent clip magnetic holder and needed a strong magnet to hold my LG G4 in place. I was driving out of state a lot at the time and did NOT want my phone to fall! I needed it for the GPS, music and podcasts; it's an integral part of my travels! I bought these magnets to replace the ones that came with the unit because the manufacturer doesn't sell only that piece. I found these on fan-key and decided to give them a try. The price was so good, I figured "why not?". They worked (and still work) beautifully! They are very strong and nearly paper thin. I very highly recommend them!

Magnets aren't holding newer phones that use denser materials as well anymore.
I love the concept of magnetic mounts but as phones get bigger and heavier (or just heavier due to denser materials), it's harder to feel like there's a comfortable "stick" between my phone and the magnet on my dash...especially when it's in a case.. I recently switched to Quad-Lock which seems to be a bulletproof radial tooth locking system that is immune to things like friction, gravity, and accidentally knocking the phone off the dash. Sorry tech matte, but it's time I move on.

I purchased these to go with a magnetic car mount I had bought to hold me cell phone. I had lost the magnetic inserts, so I bought these to replace the part I lost. These magnets work very well. I just slipped on between my phone and it's case, and now the mount works perfectly. I definitely recommend adding these to your purchase if you have a magnetic phone mount in your car.

Nothing much to say. They are magnets that go with the car mounting system that TechMatte sells. I tried to use on of the magnets with my Ipad2, and either I needed to let the magnet set on there for a little bit, or the glue is not strong enough, because it kept peeling away from the case when I put my Ipad2 onto my care mount.
They shipped on time in a reasonable amount of packaging.

After selling my old phone and buying a new one, I had no replacement plates for the new phone. I have an LG G4 and the plate stuck firmly. Attached to my car mount without an issue, even with a case on. Any large phone could easily fit both of the circular mounts on the back for added support. I do wish that the rectangular plates came with an adhesive, though. The seller also contacted me via email the day that my package was delivered in case I had any questions or concerns.

Good to have spares!
It’s a good idea to have extra magnets especially if you do what I do and that is: stick the magnet in the inside of case instead of the outside or directly on your device. Then Having the extras is great for when you change cases. Thanks to TechMatte for providing them!

Same magnets that came with the original car mount, although this kit includes an extra of each type which is nice especially when others drive your car. Seems a little expensive for magnets, but they work well so I won't complain.

Works as advertised
Lost the one that came with my car mount. Ordered these to replace it. Piece of steel with adhesive on it. Works as advertised. Nice price and now I have some spares for future reference.
