[Update: Last day to enter] 14 lucky readers will be getting a Scosche MagicMount Pro Charge wireless charger with 10W fast charging (a $69 value) [US]

Scosche's MagicMount Pro Charge, however, gives you a top notch wireless charger that places your phone in perfect view and without any cumbersome gadgets to keep it in place.

Even better, 14 AP readers will get one free thanks to Scosche.
