If you’re constantly consuming content, scrolling on social media, and/or sending messages, you might be wondering how you can make your iPhone battery last longer. Apple’s MagSafe Battery Pack for the iPhone 12 lineup will help you do just that, powering your phone through a long day at work or while you’re out and about. The MagSafe Battery Pack attaches with a snap to your phone, making on-the-go charging easy.
Unlike bulky charging cases of the past, the MagSafe Battery Pack has a compact and intuitive design that doesn’t get in the way. It has perfectly aligned magnets that keep it attached to your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro, providing safe and reliable wireless charging. Don’t get this mistaken for a power bank and expect a big boost in battery life. When you’re out and about, the MagSafe will charge your phone at 5W. At this rate, it helps to prolong your battery life throughout your day without generating too much heat. If you want to increase the rate it charges, plugging in a lightning cable will speed it up (especially with a 20W or higher power adaptor).
The MagSafe Battery Pack was designed for the iPhone 12 lineup and won’t work on earlier iPhones. It will snap right onto the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. The charging happens automatically so there’s no need to turn it on or off. An added perk is that the MagSafe can also charge the Qi-enabled AirPods Pro and AirPods in their cases.
It’s a pretty handy accessory to have on hand, especially if you own the iPhone 12 mini which has a shorter battery life than the rest. The price point is slightly on the high side but that can’t be that surprising. While there are other battery packs on the market, it’s pretty safe to assume that Apple-made products always work best with other Apple products.
