There is a recent rumor suggesting that Apple could be working on a MagSafe power bank for the iPhone. When exactly this accessory will debut remains to be seen, but in the meantime, it seems that accessory maker Anker might have beaten Apple to the punch with a MagSafe power bank of their own.
This power bank will feature a 5,000mAh battery that will be capable of fully juicing up the iPhone 12 mini, but will only bring the iPhone 12 Pro Max to 75%, but we suppose the small and somewhat portable nature of the accessory does compensate for it. Plus the fact that no cables are required is an added bonus and will make it easier to be brought around as it could be slipped into a bag or pocket.
Unfortunately, Anker’s MagSafe power bank is not an officially certified MagSafe accessory. This doesn’t mean that it is dangerous, but rather because it has not received official certification, it means that the speed at which it charges is capped at 7.5W as opposed to other certified MagSafe chargers that can charge at speeds of 15W.
Once again, the slightly slower charging speeds shouldn’t really be an issue since portability and ease of use seems to be its main selling point. The accessory is currently on Amazon where it is priced at $40, but at the moment it appears to be sold out, but hopefully it’ll be available again soon.
