What is MagSafe?

MagSafe is a magnetic technology developed by Apple for Apple devices. Initially, MagSafe was a safety feature for MacBooks (before Apple switched to Type-C chargers for MacBooks), until it started to be an added feature for iPhones, starting with the release of the iPhone 12 line. Its main purpose is to add efficient and convenient wireless charging for Apple’s handheld and wearable devices.

If you’re using a non-MagSafe case, remove it when charging wirelessly with a MagSafe battery pack or charging dock for more stable charging.

1. Apple MagSafe Battery Pack

Price: $99

The Apple MagSafe Battery Pack is a highly portable MagSafe battery pack that fits smaller MagSafe-compatible iPhones, like the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 mini. It also fits the bigger iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max. It can charge iPhone minis up to 70%. However, it can only charge Pro models up to 60% and Pro Max models up to 40%. If you want a MagSafe battery pack with higher charging capacity, you won’t find that from Apple.

Apple Magsafe Battery Pack


  • 15W wired charging
  • Fits iPhone mini models
  • Battery level visible on the iPhone
  • Supports pass-through charging
  • MFI certified


  • Charging capacity is low for its price point (2,920mAh)
  • No kickstand
  • Only available in white

2. ESR HaloLock Mini Kickstand

Price: $49.99

When you look at the ESR HaloLock Mini Kickstand‘s capacity, it looks like a better purchase compared to the Apple MagSafe Battery Pack. It has a kickstand, which is convenient for propping up your phone. It’s almost half its Apple counterpart’s price and has better specifications.

3. Oisle MW242

Price: $84.99

The Oisle MW242 is smaller and lighter than the Apple MagSafe Battery Pack and the ESR HaloLock Mini Kickstand. It’s great if you use an iPhone Mini or want a lighter and smaller MagSafe battery pack. The downside, however, is its low wireless charging capacity. However, it sports a decent capacity and portability.

Oisle Mw242


  • Smallest battery pack on the list
  • Lightweight (0.17 lbs or 89g)
  • 4,225mAh capacity
  • Supports wireless charging for iPhone 8 and newer
  • Supports pass-through charging
  • Comes in five colors (black, white, blue, red, and pink)


  • 5W wireless charging
  • 10W wired charging
  • No battery level indicator
  • Not MFI certified

4. Anker 633

Price: $79.99

The Anker 633 packs the highest capacity with two wired charging options to charge your iPhone and other devices more quickly. It also has a kickstand and a battery level indicator. However, it doesn’t work with iPhones older than the iPhone 12 series. But with the enormous capacity and simultaneous device charging, it’s an excellent pick if you’re always on the go with more than one device you need to charge.

Anker 633


  • 10,000mAh capacity
  • Kickstand
  • 2 USB ports (Type-C and Type-A)
  • LED battery level indicator
  • Charges 20W wired with Type-C
  • Charges 18W wired with Type-A
  • Can charge up to three devices at the same time
  • Supports pass-through charging
  • Comes in three colors (black, white, and blue)


  • Heavy compared to other MagSafe battery packs on this list (219g)
  • Can’t wirelessly charge iPhones older than the iPhone 12 series
  • Not MFI certified

Tip: before you bring your MagSafe battery pack on a flight, check whether your power bank is allowed on the plane.

5. iWalk Power Grip Mag

Price: $49.99

If you want to ensure that your iPhone doesn’t fall out of your hands with the extra bulk from a MagSafe battery pack, the iWalk Power Grip MAG is a good choice. It has a ring you can rotate for optimal grip and use as a stand. iWalk’s Power Grip MAG has a unique LED display that shows the battery level. However, it can’t charge more than one device at a time, which is inconvenient if you need to charge more than just your iPhone.

It’s perfect for you if its Apple counterpart is out of budget, but you like the way it looks. It doesn’t have a stand or ring, but it’s small enough not to make your iPhone challenging to grip (even if you have an iPhone mini).

Frequently Asked Questions

Is MagSafe different from Qi?

Qi is a wireless charging standard much like Apple’s MagSafe technology, but it covers more than a single brand of smartphones. It will wirelessly charge iPhones without the MagSafe technology It can also charge iPhones that have MagSafe, but the magnet doesn’t stick as much as when using a MagSafe battery pack with a MagSafe-compatible iPhone.

Is it safe to use a MagSafe battery pack without MFI certification?

It should be safe to use a MagSafe battery pack without MFI certification. However, before buying a specific battery pack for your iPhone, read and watch product reviews from trusted sources.

Additionally, if you can test the product you want before purchasing it, we highly recommend doing so to ensure that the battery pack won’t heat up, is the correct size and weight, and a product that will provide value to you.
