The Magnetic Wireless Charger is not MagSafe and cannot charge an iPhone at 15W, but it does charge at 7.5W like Qi-based chargers and is less expensive than MagSafe 2-in-1 charging options that cost upwards of $100. 7.5W is more than sufficient for overnight charging or charging throughout the day on a desk, so a non-MagSafe option can be ideal if you’re looking to save some money.
Because this is a MagSafe-compatible charger the main charging surface is designed for an iPhone 12, 12 mini, 12 Pro, or 12 Pro Max and won’t work with an earlier iPhone model. There is a secondary charging spot for the AirPods that technically works with an iPhone, but it’s 2.5W charging so best suited to Apple’s earbuds.
You can position an iPhone 12 in either landscape or portrait mode, so the charger is also ideal for watching videos, FaceTiming, and other similar activities. An LED light confirms the charging status of the iPhone and AirPods at the same time.
The Magnetic Wireless Charger comes with a 30W Power Adapter so you don’t need to worry about supplying your own like you do with Apple’s charging options, and it has an included 3.3-foot USB-C cable.
