Consumer electronics maker Portronics has launched its new Charge Clamp, which is a dual purpose car accessory. Portronics Charge Clamp is essentially a wireless mobile charger which also acts like a car mobile holder that enables users to keep their smartphones in case they are using them while driving.

The accessory comes with three movable hinges that allow the smartphone to be held and tilted at whichever angle the user likes it to be in.
There is a latch at the bottom of the Charge Clamp that allows it to securely mount smartphones firmly. This also ensures that the smartphone of the user doesn’t accidentally fall off when the car is being driven on bumpy roads. The charger weighs 245 grams and the company has claimed that it protects the user’s smartphone from a current surge, overvoltage, over-temperature protection as well as summer heat.

The company has further said that the Charge Clamp can charge a smartphone at a maximum output of 10 watts and has a maximum distance of wireless charging of up to 8mm.
The new Charge Clamp by Portronics also supports wired charging.
