I find that the Okra has a much weaker magnet than other vent mounts. This causes my phone to fall off the mount if there is much acceleration in any direction.

I have one of these and works great but only on one car. The other has the vents on too much of an angle and phone pointing up

I'm still waiting on an RMA from a previous deal on this. So far, I can't get one.

Once I put the magnet on the phone or case, the QI charging doe snot work any longer on my S7 or Note 7. Any suggestions?

"Magnetic Plates Designed To Work Through Any Case"

These types of things don't work on "any" case. I have an identical product from a well-known company and it doesn't work on my case. My case is pretty thick and the back is not flat, which weakens the grip of the magnets. It doesn't stay on my case at all.

Vent mount is fine until you want the A/C blasting your face. I just bought a magnetic CD player mount instead.

The magnets are not on the plates that go on the phone. They are on the mount. Of course, you are putting a metal plate on the phone and this may prevent you form using your S7.

Would it prevent the Note 7 from exploding though?

On an Accord, neither work. The CD mount doesn't work either. I'm trying a suction one with magnets.

  Yes, return them for a full refund before your car burst up in flames.

Suction gets weak over time and you would pull the mount off with your phone. I have this https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B016GNYZIC/
