Anker MagSafe power bank
Accessory maker Anker has released the new MagSafe-compatible battery pack that connects directly to your iPhone to provide charging without a cable.
The PowerCore Magnetic 5K Wireless Power Bank launches on March 3 for $ 40, beating Apple’s MagSafe battery product in terms of market reach.
The PowerCore Magnetic 5K Wireless Power Bank features a 5000 mAh battery, with the usual Anker power bank design, including an LED indicator light to let you know how much power is left in the device
The device also features a USB-C output for charging using a cable as well, and the additional 5,000 mAh capacity is a big boost, especially for the smaller iPhone 12 mini, but it’s limited by the device’s lack of MagSafe certification.
The new wireless power bank can charge iPhone 12 mini from 0 to 100 percent, iPhone 12 charge 0 to 95 percent, iPhone 12 Pro charge 0 to 97 percent, or iPhone 12 Pro Max charge 0 to 75 percent Percent
It is important to keep in mind that MagSafe accessories can charge at 15W, but this Anker accessory is compatible with MagSafe only, and is not MagSafe certified.
The PowerCore Magnetic is limited to the standard 5W Qi charging speeds with the iPhone 12
What makes the latest PowerCore Magnetic 5K Power Bank unique is the MagSafe-compatible magnetic design, so it can be attached to the back of iPhone 12 and act as a portable wireless charger
There were rumors that Apple was developing its own MagSafe battery accessory for iPhones, which would likely be able to charge at 15 watts, but it faced some hurdles in the way of development.
The Apple device was initially mentioned in the beta version of iOS 14.5, but this reference has since been removed
However Anker’s new PowerCore Magnetic 5K appears to be a solid choice for more convenient wireless charging on the go
The company explains the advantages of the power bank by saying: Wireless charging is simple and convenient, as you only need to attach the PowerCore magnetically to the back of your phone and watch the flow of charging power, which is a factory for the iPhone 12 collection, and it is charged through compatible magnetic cases.
