The best MagSafe battery packs for your iPhone starting at just $20
Everyone needs an energy boost from time to time, and I’m not talking about that afternoon espresso shot. If your phone’s battery doesn’t last all day, it’s a good idea to have a battery on hand. Most portable chargers, aka power banks, require a cable, but iPhone 12, iPhone 13, and iPhone 14 users can take advantage of MagSafe technology and simply slip one on the back. (Yay, magnets!) There are tons of MagSafe mobile chargers out there; Below I’ve highlighted four that I consider top picks.
Speaking of magnets, do you save your phone just in case? (Of course you should.) If it is, then it needs to be MagSafe-compatible so the charger can snap onto it and still magically power your phone. If you’re not sure, look for the telltale “magnifying glass” design on the inside or outside of the case:
You might also be wondering how much power these backpacks have. Three of the four have 5,000mAh batteries, which should be good for at least one full iPhone charge. (For reference, the iPhone 13 packs a 3,227mAh battery.) The Anker 633 ups the ante at 10,000mAh and measures just a tad thicker than the rest. The downside is that you pay more for that extra juice.
Something else to note: All four power adapters come with a USB-C cable, but to actually charge them you’ll also need a USB-C power adapter, which is not included. If you already have one that can produce at least 5V/3A, go ahead and use it. Otherwise, here’s a 2-pack dual-port USB power adapter for $13 (because you can always use a spare).
Fokimdo MagSafe Wireless Power Bank 5000mAh
The bargain to beat, Fokimdo’s battery pack is less than half the price of some others. The stand allows for both portrait and landscape viewing of the phone. I didn’t get to test this one, but it has a solid 4.3 star rating from over 400 buyers. Guarantee: 12 months.
$20 at Amazon
Voltme MagPak 5K magnetic battery pack
Available in your choice of four colors, the MagPak is only 0.5cm thick and comes with a fold-out kickstand flap that allows you to place your phone in either portrait or landscape orientation. Guarantee: 18 months.
$25 at Amazon
Anker 622 MagGo with PopSockets grip
For those who can’t live without a PopSocket, this is the battery to go for. Anker basically crammed one of the little pop-out handles onto an otherwise pretty standard charger. It is nice that it can also be used as a stand, but only in landscape mode. Wait for a sale on this one; I’ve seen it as low as $40. Guarantee: 18 months.
$70 at Amazon
Anchor 633 MagGo
Anker’s 633, the big kahuna of the group, packs a 10,000mAh battery and a fold-out kickstand. It also has a 20-watt Power Delivery USB-C port if you want faster charging via a USB-C to Lightning cable (not included). This doesn’t come up for sale very often, but was as low as $60. Guarantee: 24 months.
$80 at Amazon
