stick it on an air vent. stick the metal plate to the inside of your case or back of your phone. the MPOW is decent as the magnet is big enough so the phone never falls

Ethically if you want an Electric car go for it. But note your insurance is usually more (if its your own) on elecy cars and even Teslas are pretty shit to drive as they are heavy fuckers, the autopilot doesn't work great and their reliability is fucking abysmal so make sure you get a warranty if it aint new.
