Ever got into a state of panic when your iPhone is so low batt and you forgot to bring your charging cord? It’s frustrating. We know, and yes, Apple knows, too. That’s probably why they finally released their latest product: the MagSafe Battery Pack, a.k.a. a power bank that needs no cord.
Apple MagSafe Battery Pack (USD 99 / PHP ~5,000)
This much-awaited wireless power bank from Apple is finally here. A small, rectangular device in white, the MagSafe Battery Pack will give you some extra hours by simply magnetically attaching it to your iPhone. Unfortunately, it only works with the iPhone 12 series, but it does have some nifty features, including reverse charging where you can charge both your iPhone and your MagSafe Battery Pack at the same time if you connect it through the Lightning Cord. You can monitor the charging status through your Home Screen. Shop now.
If the MagSafe Battery Pack is too much for your budget (TBH, same!), then check out these existing alternatives that are half the MagSafe’s price or less!
