Best Magsafe Accessories For iPhone 2023

Apple’s most recent iPhones come equipped with MagSafe technology, which not only facilitates wireless charging but also allows for a plethora of magnetic accessories. In this article, I have compiled a list of some of the best MagSafe-compatible accessories, such as wallets, power banks, stands, kickstands, car mounts, and other devices that can be attached to the back of your iPhone or MagSafe-compatible iPhone case.

There are two types of “MagSafe” accessories available in the market: official, Apple-licensed products and unofficial ones. The key distinction between the two is that non-certified accessories cannot charge at the highest speeds of up to 15 watts. However, in many instances, the lack of certification does not impact the performance of the product. Nevertheless, some non-Apple-certified MagSafe-compatible accessories may have weaker magnets, which could affect their effectiveness.

Below are my best MagSafe accessories, all of which I have personally used and tested. As I come across new standout products, I will continue to update this list accordingly.

Magnetic Charging Stands in 2023- Magsafe Accessories

1- Anker 637 Magnetic Desktop Charging Station

On one side, the Anker 637 includes a magnetic charging pad, while the back of the device has seven charging ports. These ports consist of two USB-C ports, two USB-A ports, and three standard AC outlets. With a single device connected, the USB-C ports can provide a charge of up to 65 watts, whereas when two devices are connected, the charging speed is split between 45 and 20 watts. Hence, it is possible to use this charging pad to power most laptops that charge through USB-C.

The wireless charging pad for MagSafe-enabled iPhones charges at a speed of 7.5 watts. However, if you wish to charge an Android phone, you would need to purchase a metal ring accessory separately and place it in the correct position. Additionally, by activating the instant coupon on the product page, you can currently save $30 on your purchase. It is the best Megasafe accessories addition to your collection.

2 – Belkin Boost Pro 3-in-1 Charging Pad

As an Apple-certified MagSafe accessory, the Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 provides fast wireless charging (at a rate of 15 watts) for both your MagSafe-enabled iPhone and Apple Watch.

The charging unit comes equipped with a 40-watt adapter, which allows you to charge an iPhone 13 Pro, a third-generation pair of AirPods, and a Watch Series 7 simultaneously. Similar to the Boost Charge Watch fast-charger, the Watch module is adjustable and can fit all Apple Watch case sizes, whether in flat or nightstand mode. While it is possible to charge a second phone in the AirPods slot, fast charging is not supported, and the charging speed is limited to 5 watts.

Undoubtedly, this charging station is an excellent choice for charging your Apple devices, with its sophisticated and polished design, complete with a soft, velvety silicone finish. However, my only concern is that the surface tends to attract dust, which required me to clean it thoroughly with an alcohol towelette before taking photographs. If you are similarly troubled by dust accumulation, I would suggest opting for the white version of both chargers, as the black version tends to display dust more prominently.

3 – Belkin MagSafe Wireless Charger with Kickstand

The MagSafe Wireless Charger with Kickstand from Belkin is an upgraded version of Apple’s wireless MagSafe charger, thanks to the inclusion of a built-in kickstand. This flip-out stand enables you to comfortably watch videos on your iPhone while it’s charging and even allows for gaming with a wireless game controller

This charger can provide charging speeds of up to 15 watts and is available in black, white, and blue color variants. However, it doesn’t come with a power adapter, as the cable is already built into the charging puck.

For those who shoot their own selfie videos for social media platforms with a MagSafe-enabled iPhone, Belkin’s magnetic phone mount with face tracking is an excellent choice. Although it has a companion iOS app, it does not have an Android app. Competing products, such as the Pivo Pod Lite ($70), are available, but this mount is MagSafe-enabled, so all you have to do is stick your phone on the mount and adjust it to either landscape or portrait mode. The pedestal automatically follows your face as you’re shooting yourself.

Just to clarify, this product is not intended for video calls on platforms like FaceTime, WhatsApp, or WeChat. It does not require any power connection, making it easy to move around and position wherever you need it. However, it doesn’t have a rechargeable battery and instead uses three AA batteries to provide added weight and stability to the pedestal.

For PopSockets enthusiasts, there are two MagSafe-compatible options to choose from. The first is the standard PopGrip, which is priced at $30. The second option is the PopWallet Plus for MagSafe, which is priced at $40 and combines a magnetic wallet that can hold a few credit cards with a PopGrip that functions as a grip and kickstand.

6 – Gear4 by Zagg Ring Snap 360

Zagg’s Gear4 Ring Snap 360 is a multifunctional accessory that doubles as a ring and a stand. It boasts a sleek and sturdy design, complete with a powerful magnet that firmly attaches to your iPhone or MagSafe-enabled case. Although the stand is more effective in propping up your device horizontally, it can also hold it at a 45-degree angle in portrait mode. The accessory comes in two colors, but the rose gold variant is exclusive to Zagg’s website.

Best Magnetic Car Mounts And Chargers in 2023

iOttie provides a wireless car charger that is compatible with MagSafe and includes a car vent mount. The mount has a powerful magnet that securely holds your iPhone and comes with a USB-C cable and a cigarette-lighter power adapter, so you can start charging right away. Keep in mind that the “fast” charging for iPhones is limited to 7.5 watts.

8 – Belkin Car Vent Mount Pro with MagSafe

Belkin’s Car Vent Mount Pro with MagSafe is primarily a certified MagSafe vent mount and not a charger. However, Belkin also has a wireless charging version of this mount available, which costs $40 without the car charger and $60 with it. But even with the wireless version, you still need to connect a cable to it for charging.

The advantage of the wireless version is that you wouldn’t need to plug a cable into your phone each time you want to charge it, unlike with this vent mount. While I have a USB-C-to-Lightning cable set up in my car for fast charging, I find the extra step of plugging in the cable each time I want to charge my phone a bit inconvenient.

9 – STM MagArm

The STM MagArm is created to stick to the back of your computer monitor or laptop with an integrated suction cup. Although some users have complained that the suction cup is not strong enough, I managed to attach the MagArm securely to both a laptop and a monitor by following the instructions carefully. I used the accessory with an iPhone 14 Pro, which is a comparatively heavy phone, but I have not tested it with the iPhone 14 Max Pro or Max Plus.

The mount can be adjusted to sit either horizontally on the side or vertically on top of your laptop or monitor. An added bonus is that it comes equipped with a dock for Apple’s wireless MagSafe charging puck, enabling you to keep your phone charged while mounted. However, if you prefer, you can also charge your phone using a wired charger.

Although the MagArm may be larger and more substantial than other laptop MagSafe mounts, it is solidly built. The suction cup can be peeled off your laptop without leaving any marks, and it can be reattached when needed.

With the Belkin iPhone Mount with MagSafe for Mac Notebooks, you can easily prop up your iPhone in landscape mode as a kickstand. Additionally, you can attach the mount to the top of your MacBook in either portrait or landscape mode to use your phone as a webcam, making it a versatile tool for video calls and conferences.
