Power banks can be a lifesaver, especially when you are traveling. But if we’re being honest, having to use a wired connection to charge your phone while you’re out and about kind of stinks. MagSafe battery packs are a total game-changer when it comes to mobile battery charging.
MagSafe battery packs are lightweight, slim, and snap right onto the back of your phone without the need for a wired connection. It essentially becomes a part of your phone just like a wallet case does and eliminates having to carry around two devices (your phone and a separate power bank, for instance).
Many of these MagSafe battery packs provide a full day’s worth of battery so the chances of you being lost in a new city with a dead phone decrease dramatically. And most only cost around $50 or under, so it’s not like you have to dip into savings to afford this cellphone battery insurance.
With a MagSafe battery pack, there’s no reason why you should ever have to deal with a dead phone battery ever again. You’ll find our recommendations for the best MagSafe battery packs below.
1. Apple MagSafe Battery Pack
If you’re rocking a new iPhone 13 or iPhone 12, one of the best and safest bets for your MagSafe battery pack needs is the one made by Apple. It doesn’t interfere with key fobs or credit cards and it charges your iPhone quickly with 15W charging. It’s a little on the pricey side for a battery pack, but if you’re team iPhone, it’s worth the extra coin for perfect compatibility.
2. Anker Magnetic Wireless Portable Charger
GREAT FOR IPHONE 12 & 13
This battery pack is small, lightweight and provides plenty of charging power for your iPhone. It has the ability to charge your phone while it’s in use, providing you with 17 or so hours of continuous use without you needing to plug your phone in. That’s plenty of charging power from the 5,000 mAh battery. It even comes in four different colors to provide a little personal style to your battery pack.
3. Mophie Snap+ Juice Pack Mini
The Mophie Snap+ can charge your lowly battery in two different ways: through Qi wireless charging that magnetically snaps to the back of your Qi capable phone or through a wired USB-C connection. So, even if your device doesn’t have wireless charging, it can serve as your personal charging bank. When it is snapped to the back of your phone though, you’ll barely notice thanks to a slim and lightweight design providing you with an extra full day of battery life.
4. Magnetic Wireless Charger Power Bank
Sporting the same 5,000 mAh battery size as the Anker MagSafe battery pack, but at half the cost and in a tiny form factor, this Sonzoll battery pack is a great choice for those looking to save a little bit of money and keep the weight down on their MagSafe battery pack. It can even charge with a wired connection if you prefer that sort of thing. It charges while in use and is compatible with many older versions of iPhone and Samsung phones.
5. Oisle Wireless Power Bank Magnetic Portable Charger
The Oisle MagSafe battery pack cleverly uses the logo to let you know how much juice is left in the 4,225 mAh battery pack. When it lights up blue that means high power, purple means midrange and red means less than 30% left. The battery pack can charge an iPhone 12 Mini all the way back to full battery and provide an iPhone 12 with a 70% boost. And the packs come in four fun colors. It’s not the most powerful, but the design is really well thought out.
6. Zens Magnetic Dual Powerbank with Stand
When you have multiple Qi-enabled devices, let’s say your iPhone 13 and your Airpods, you can charge both of them wirelessly with the Zens power bank. But how? It charges wirelessly from both sides of the power bank. So, if you set your phone face down, put the battery pack on the back and your Airpods on top of that, you’ll be able to charge both devices at once. Plus, the MagSafe battery pack comes with a handy stand to prop up your phone on your tabletop if need be.
7. Benks Portable Magnetic Wireless Power Bank
GREAT FOR APPLE AND ANDROID
It doesn’t matter whether you’re team Apple or Android or go both ways (personal phone is an iPhone and work phone an Android), this 5,000 mAh MagSafe battery pack will work with both. The battery pack has enough juice to essentially give your phone another full day of life without needing to plug it in. The wireless charging goes at a rather slow but steady 5W while charging through a wired connection bumps up the speed to 12W. Considering the compatibility and battery size, the $40 price tag isn’t too steep either.
8. Belkin Magnetic Wireless Charger
This slim Belkin MagSafe charger provides 5W wireless charging speeds and is compatible with MagSafe cases. One of its best features is passthrough charging that will continue to charge your phone even while the battery bank is plugged in for charging. This eliminates the need for two cables or two outlets getting used up to charge two devices. And since it’s only one inch thick, you’ll barely notice it when attached to your phone.
9. Enforcer Power Magnetic Power Bank
GREAT FOR GAMERS
It doesn’t matter whether you like to game on your Android or iPhone, the Enforcer Power Bank has both lightning and USB-C ports for wired charging and is Qi-compatible. This power pack is a little on the larger side and doesn’t work with the Mini variety of iPhones. But if you’re gaming or watching content, you’ll most likely be using a bigger phone anyway. Plus, there’s a metal kickstand on the back to prop your phone up and watch a show hands-free.
