Anker PowerCore Magnetic 5K Wireless Power Bank – first MagSafe battery pack

Anker has created a wireless battery pack that makes use of Apple’s proprietary MagSafe magnetic charging and mounting system. The PowerCore Magnetic 5K Wireless Power Bank clicks on the back of the iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max to give it charge.

The pack will only support 5W wireless charging from the 5,000 mAh cell but if you want charging to be a little quicker, the bank also has a USB-C port that supports 10W output.

As most iPhone owners will use a case of some sort, Anker is compatible with MagSafe cases. Hence, users can attach it to any iPhone 12 series device with or without a case.

At the moment, these battery packs will only be available in the US at a cost of $39.99 with an 18-month warranty. Apple is said to be creating its own wireless solution but at the moment, this is the only option.


Moment MagSafe accessories for iPhone

The new iPhone has been released with a new MagSafe charging system. It worked wonders on the old Macbooks and now Apple has found a way to incorporate it into its wireless charging system for its phones.

It may be the start of the end of wired charging as we know it but with Apple’s own magnetic accessories, it has left the door wide open for other companies to create their own accessories. Step forward Moment, a company focussed on great phone photography has made some fantastic camera lens kits and cases for iPhones in the past. Now it has recently launched its MagSafe line.

The team has combined the MagSafe technology and created proprietary patent pending configuration of magnets allowing for the strongest connection possible. There are cases with canvas or wood for that added tactility, drop in lens mounts for those moments when the standard iPhone 12 lenses don’t cut it, to mounts for tripods, car vents and cold shoe mount for lights or microphones.

Prices range from $19.99 to $49.99 for the mounts and cases, but with either of them you won’t be disappointed with the fit and quality of these products.
