For iPhone users who are looking for extra performance plus wireless charging and want to stay in the Apple ecosystem, the MagSafe battery is the best (and only) way to go. It’s pretty pricey at $99, but Amazon has it now on offer at $80 ($19 off the regular price), the cheapest we’ve seen this year.
The MagSafe battery pack magnetically snaps onto the back of any iPhone 12 or 13 model and begins charging the handset once connected to around 5 watts of power. It even fits on the back of the iPhone 13 mini, so you can still use your phone with one hand when you turn it on. If you plug in the battery while charging your iPhone, you’ll get up to 15W of power, and you can track your phone’s and battery’s charge levels on your iPhone’s lock screen.
The main downsides of the MagSafe battery pack are the 1,460mAh battery, which can’t fully charge any of the supported iPhones, and the charging speed is limited to 5 watts – lower than some third-party models. If you need more juice, take a look at Anker’s $60 5,000mAh MagGo model or the bulky but powerful $60 model Belkin 10,000mAh Magnetic Charger and portable power bank. Apple’s MagSafe model is certainly more stylish and portable than these options. So if you’re looking to buy one, you should act soon.
