MagSafe starts charging phone but then stops

I have a MagSafe charger plugged into a car charger adapter plugged into the center console 12V outlet. I have the MagSafe disc mounted to the dash on a NiteIze Steelie adhesive mount. I have a Casely case with integrated MagSafe.

When I put the phone on the MagSafe, it charges for about a minute, then stops charging. This happens with both a Belkin (Belkin 2A/36W 2-port USB-C Car Charger - Black) and Anker (USB C Car Charger, Anker 48W... Amazon.com) unit.

If I unplug the cable or charger unit and then plug it back in, it will charge for a minute and then stop again.

Any ideas? I’m scratching my head on this one.

Coming back here to report that it is the NiteIze Steelie magnetic mount that is interfering with the Apple MagSafe charger.

Too bad. It is a low-profile mount that works well in all other respects.
