A review of the Brodit iPhone 5 active holder and proclip mount


Ever since Apple introduced the iPhone third party manufacturers have been making protective cases for them. This is all well and good, but when trying to use the phone in a car it has been virtually impossible to find a mount that will provide both a secure fitting and provide power. That has all changed now with the introduction of the Brodit iPhone 5 holders. These holders can accommodate a range of case sizes from 59mm wide and 6mm thick through to 77mm wide and 13mm thick.

Brodit have four different versions of these holders: Passive, Active with accessory plug, Active for fixed installation, and Active for cable attachment. The passive holder simply provides a holder for the iPhone 5 whereas the active holders also provide a means of powering the iPhone as well. The holders with an accessory plug provide power by using a USB to Lightning cable combined with a cigar lighter power adapter. The holders for fixed installation come with a cable with just bare wires for permanent connection to the car, and the holders for cable attachment are designed to fit the standard Apple cables which you have to provide yourself.

I have the iPhone 4 Brodit active adjustable mount. As soon as I could buy a black cable i took the old cable (out 2 screws on the back), then put iphone 5 in the holder made adjustments. Then a dob of super glue either side of the lightning plug put the clamp back on and I have a perfectly functional holder for the 5 for 5.99 from an auction site. That was 9 months ago and I have had no issues.

The 5 is not as fat as the 4 but with the adjustable holder it fits snugly.
