Apple’s MagSafe Battery Pack for iPhone 12 is here, and while first impressions of the accessory seem to be good, for my part, I’m not convinced of the value of the device. This week in our poll, we want to know what you think of her. Have you bought one? If so, what do you think? Is it one of the best MagSafe portable batteries available or a useless gimmick? Maybe you haven’t bought one, we want to know why! Before it rings, here are a few things to consider, from our review:
Apple’s MagSafe Battery Pack will help extend your iPhone’s battery for a few more hours, but don’t expect it to quickly charge your iPhone unless it’s plugged in. The size is quite compact and the hard plastic has a soft-touch finish that feels nice.
The Magsafe battery pack comes with full iOS 14.7 integration, is compact and has strong magnets, and can be used upside down while charging your iPhone. However, it is very expensive at $ 99, it has a very small capacity compared to rivals like Anker’s PowerCore Magnetic 5K and the mophie snap + juice pack.
For me, I just can’t understand why you paid double for a battery with a third capacity, unless you are absolutely desperate for a white battery and with the Apple logo. Which brings me to another point, why is it only available in white? It sure is distinctive, but I can’t imagine it aging well with dirt and grime without having to constantly clean it. I just don’t see any benefit in Apple’s offering over existing competitors, which are considerably cheaper and offer a more realistic charge … Is there anything I missed?
