It took 30 minutes to charge up my iPhone 12 Pro from 28% to 50% and 2 hours (!!!) to reach 95% before it died. The slow charge is because the MagSafe Battery Pack only charges iPhone 12 devices at 5 watts. That’s significantly slower than a wired MagSafe puck connected to Apple’s 20W charger, which outputs 15 watts or 13 watts with the 18W charger.
The MagSafe Battery Pack is a tough sell when Anker’s PowerCore Magnetic charges at the same 5W, has more capacity, supports wired charging, and comes in at $46. But you already know that you pay a premium for Apple’s official accessories. How much is that little bit of Apple special-ness worth to you?
