There are a number of different MagSafe-compatible portable batteries out there, all of which magnetically attach to your iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 so that you can wirelessly charge it on the go — no need to bring a cable.

Some support reverse wireless charging, so they can wirelessly charge your iPhone and be wirelessly charged when not attached to iPhone. And some just look nicer than others. Apple makes the MagSafe Battery Pack, of course, but it's expensive and has a lower capacity, so it might make more sense for you to go with a third-party option. Here's what you need to know.
