The Best MagSafe Chargers for Your iPhone

Not all MagSafe chargers are created equal.

tech roundup
Belkin

Apple's iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 lines all support MagSafe. This allows them to be compatible with an ecosystem of magnetic accessories, but more importantly it allows them to wireless charge faster.

A true MagSafe charger can charge an iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 at 15 watts, which is twice as fast as the 7.5 watts that any iPhone can charge when using a Qi-wireless charger. The only catch is that the new "mini" iPhones, which support MagSafe, can only charge at a max of 12 watts over MagSafe (which is still much faster than over standard Qi).

That said, there are few true MagSafe wireless chargers available right now. A lot of third-party chargers aren't true MagSafe chargers because, while they can magnetically hold and charge your iPhone, they aren't approved by Apple and so will only charge it at 7.5-watts and not the faster 15-watt charging speeds.

So before buying one, make sure you know exactly what you're getting.

Wireless Chargers That Fully Support MagSafe

A true MagSafe charger is one that can charge supported iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 handsets at up to 15-watts, which is twice as fast as wireless chargers that don't fully support MagSafe.

Apple MagSafe Charger

Apple's entry-level MagSafe charger is the best option for most people. It doesn't come with a wall adapter, so Apple recommends pairing it with a 20-watt USB-C adapter for optimal charging speeds.

Apple MagSafe Duo Charger

The MagSafe Duo is Apple's fancy 2-in-1 wireless charger that has a foldable design and can simultaneously charge any model of iPhone 12 and an Apple Watch. It doesn't come with a wall adapter.

Belkin Boost Up Charge Pro

Belkin

This is a 3-in-1 wireless charger for your iPhone 12, Apple Watch and AirPods Pro. It supports 15-watt wireless charging over MagSafe, so it can fast charge your iPhone 12. It comes with an AC wall adapter.

Belkin Boost Up Charge Pro 2-in-1

This is essentially a smaller, cheaper version of the Belkin Boost Up Charge Pro (above) that lacks a dedicated charging puck for the Apple Watch. It can wireless charge your iPhone and AirPods simultaneously. And it supports MagSafe's full 15-watts of power.

Wireless Chargers That Do Not Fully Support MagSafe
mos

The following wireless chargers have built-in magnetics that hold and charge your iPhone 12 or iPhone 13. However, they don't support MagSafe's fast charging, meaning they max out at 7.5 watts instead of the 15 watts that MagSafe promises.
