The rate at which new MagSafe accessories are coming to market has continued to increase. Here are some of our current new favorites that work with iPhone 12 and iPhone 13.
MagSafe does a multitude of things for iPhone users. It can deliver power at up to 15W power, it can hold your phone in various situations, and it can connect accessories like wallets.
This roundup encompasses some new accessories that users will find helpful, though it certainly isn’t an exhaustive list of great MagSafe gear.
Moment Mobile Filmmaker Cage
Moment continues its hot streak of MagSafe accessories. Its new Mobile Filmmaker Cage is entirely unique with nothing else like it on the market.
The cage is intended for filming with an iPhone squarely mounted in the center via MagSafe. The cage around it has integrated cable management, plenty of mounting holes around the entire body, and dual cold shoes on the top.
This means you can hold the cage to film and increase stability, mount lights or microphones at any angle, or connect it to a tripod. Unlike other mobile cages, it can also stand on its own when placed down.
We love the level of customization this unlocks for mobile filmmakers.
Nomad Base One Max
There have only been a few Apple-certified MagSafe chargers to make it to market, but Nomad wants to differ by creating the most premium solution it can.
The Base One Max has a weighted metal body with a glass surface below the elevated MagSafe puck. It’s great because it also includes an Apple-certified Apple Watch charging puck.
The HyperJuice 4-in-1 is the most capable multi-charger that works with MagSafe we’ve found thus far. It can power up to four devices at one time, including a second iPhone over Qi, an Apple Watch, and a set of AirPods.
The MagSafe puck and Apple Watch puck are both certified by Apple, yielding the fastest possible speeds. It also offers up two choices for input power. You can use the included barrel connector or any USB-C charger you may have around.
Finally, unlike other charging trees, this one folds flat making it a great choice for travel. You can pick it up from Hyper for $199.
Unfortunately, even after being introduced almost two years ago, there are no official Apple-certified MagSafe car chargers. official car mounts exist in the Belkin Vent Mount Pro, but chargers capable of delivering 15W of power are nowhere to be found.
That leaves us looking elsewhere for chargers that can secure our device magnetically and power us up on the go. This has become increasingly important as more and more vehicles are arriving with wireless CarPlay in tow.
At the moment, our go-to car chargers that work with MagSafe are in iOttie’s Velox line. This lineup of chargers shares similar aesthetics, looks great, and works reliably.
We prefer the vent charger, though a cup suction version is also available. The charger is compact with a metal body and a soft silicone front. It holds onto our iPhone securely and can deliver 7.5W of power over USB-C.
Apple MagSafe Battery Pack
Apple released its MagSafe Battery Pack not long after the iPhone 12 debuted, but it was capped at 5W of power while on the go. Recently, Apple updated it to deliver up to 7.5W of power.
Now that it charges faster, it may be worth a second look for those who want a reliable battery pack to charge up while you’re away from an outlet. Beyond that, Nomad recently introduced a new leather cover for Apple’s battery.
Made of genuine Horween leather, this cover helps protect your battery pack and elevates the look of stark white plastic. It has a microsuction ring on the inside to keep it secure to the battery, and a microfiber lining nestles against your device.
