A new accessory arrives on the Apple store for owners of a iPhone 12, is called MagSafe Battery Pack and in essence it is a small powebank that goes to attach itself directly behind the iPhone using the MagSafe connection to extend the life of the battery.
“The MagSafe Battery Pack clicks in a snap, is compact and easy to use, and lets you recharge on the fly wherever you are. Magnets line up perfectly and hold it securely together with your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 Pro for safe and reliable wireless charging“, This is what we read on the Apple website, therefore an accessory for the various models of iPhone 12 that is able to wirelessly recharge the smartphone, but not only.
Continuing to read the description, we read in fact: “For even faster charging, you can use the MagSafe Battery Pack in conjunction with a 27W or higher power adapter, such as those supplied with MacBooks. And if you plug in a Lightning cable, you can use it as a wireless charger and have up to 15W of power“. Therefore it is also possible to use it together with a power supply or a lighting cable to obtain a faster recharge.
MagSafe Battery Pack: Requirements. capacity and price
Then taking a look at the support page dedicated to the MagSafe Battery Pack, we read that it is necessary to have iOS 14.7 or later versions to take advantage of this new accessory. Charging will start as soon as the battery pack is connected and will stop once the battery is at 90%, a limit that can still be removed via the settings.
The price of Apple MagSafe Battery Pack is € 109 and it is already possible to order it with delivery starting next week. The only color available is the white one and it is not known if there will be others in the future. In any case, it remains a really curious accessory, if only for its excessive price considering the battery capacity of only 1,460 mAh, which are certainly few to consider it a powerbank, but we’ll see what will emerge from the first experiences of those who decide to buy it.
