It took Apple quite some time, but it finally released a MagSafe Battery pack for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13. And even though it’s a fantastic product to have, there are still many things people didn’t like about it.
Some people expected the battery pack to have more power to keep your iPhone going for days. Others didn’t like the fact that it doesn’t have a USB-C port to charge it, albeit that’s something we all should’ve expected. Last but not least, the cost. Even though it’s a typical price from Apple, many people didn’t expect the battery pack to cost $100.
The good news is, there are many other companies with their own MagSafe alternatives ready to ship right now. If you’re looking for a cheaper, more powerful alternative, here are some options that might be worth checking out.
This Feerory Magnetic Power Bank has everything you’d want from a power bank plus a little bit more. This power bank is small enough to cover only part of your iPhone’s back, with a design that’s 50% smaller than other power banks. With a design that small, you’ll barely notice it’s there.
It has enough power to carry a 10,000 mAh battery that charges with a power of 20W. That means it can charge your iPhone up to 80% faster than other power banks. The best part is the price. Since it costs only $35, it’s one of the cheapest magnetic power banks on the list.
Overall, the Feerory power bank is affordable, powerful, and compact enough to make it a perfect daily companion for your iPhone 12 or iPhone 13.
The HyperJuice Battery Pack doesn’t have a particularly sleek design, but it’s all about the power. With 5,000 mAh, your iPhone will have enough power to last you through the day.
What’s great is that it supports pass-through wireless charging. That means you can connect the HyperJuice to power, and it will continue to charge the iPhone first. It’s not the most elegant solution, but it’s one way to charge your iPhone with a USB-C cable.
Plus, the HyperJuice is not only secure for your iPhone, but for you too. It comes with advanced temperature control and overcharging protection, so you can safely use this battery pack without worrying about your iPhone.
Anker is well-known for its many great battery packs and chargers, and this magnetic wireless portable power bank is no exception.
This battery pack offers 5,000 mAh of power, which guarantees you’ll charge your iPhone without problems. Well, almost no problems. This battery pack only offers a 5W wireless charge, which is nowhere near as fast as other options.
Still, if fast-charging isn’t an issue for you, the Anker portable charger will give you the power and security you need, including temperature control and foreign object detection.
The iWalk Magnetic Power Bank combines functionality with a big battery for your iPhone 12 or 13. Keep in mind, though, this battery pack is not for every iPhone.
The iWalk is a 6,000 mAh power bank that comes with a small surprise – a ring-style holder on the back. This will make holding your iPhone easier than before, even with such a bulky battery pack on its back.
However, before you go and buy this battery pack, remember that, because of its size, it might not be a great fit for the iPhone 12 mini or iPhone 13 mini. Unfortunately, like other MagSafe products, the iPhone mini’s size is too small to secure the iWalk properly.
If you’re looking for a sleek minimalistic battery pack and you don’t mind compromising battery for it, the Belkin Magnetic Power Bank is a great option for you.
Belkin’s charger is small and thin enough to fit on your iPhone without much bulk, but it’s got enough power to attach even if you have a case on your iPhone.
The only downside to this charger is its battery. This MagSafe Power Bank only offers 2,500 mAh or battery, which is half of what others offer for the same price. Still, if you want something that doesn’t take much space and still gives you an extra boost of 50% battery, then Belkin is the one for you.
Speaking of power and functionality, this magnetic power bank has everything you need for your iPhone. Don’t let its small design fool you. This power bank comes with 10,000 mAh of battery. Plus, it’s strong enough to charge through your MagSafe cases.
The best part is that it also works as a normal wireless charger. Meaning you can also use it to charge your AirPods wirelessly when you aren’t using it on your iPhone.
Last but not least, it comes with a folding bracket. This little thing will help you hold your iPhone while you binge-watch your favorite shows on Netflix.
Another great battery option (if you don’t care about not having fast charging) is the Oisle Magnetic Wireless Power Bank. This power bank is sleek, elegant, and has enough battery to last you the whole day.
The Oisle Power Bank has a 4,225 mAh battery, but it only charges your iPhone at 5W, so it isn’t nearly as speedy as others. However, one cool feature it has is the LED indicator, which shows its battery level with corresponding colors.
The biggest downside to this battery is the price. It’s about $60, which is a bit more expensive than other battery packs on the list. That said, it’s still way more affordable than Apple’s MagSafe battery pack.
