Transparent MagSafe chargers for iPhone give futuristic vibes
The technology’s seamless design has always had a futuristic feel to it, and now Momax is bringing the aesthetic to MagSafe-enabled iPhone charging accessories. Momax has combined seamless style with quality and affordability with its batteries, charging pads and car phone holders. This lets you see both the wireless charging coils as well as the magnetic ring behind a glass cover inside each charger. Read on for our hands-on impressions with these transparent MagSafe chargers and find out how to save 10% at checkout.
MFi Wireless Magnetic Power Bank with Stand
The first is the Made for iPhone Q.MAG POWER 5 (IP105MFI). This is the Momax MFi Certified Wireless Magnetic Power Bank with Stand. (Made for iPhone certification means Momax uses Apple’s official Lightning port, just like the iPhone.)
The small power bank has a premium feel in the hand – the glass cover that reveals the inside gives it the look of a framed iPhone teardown, and the aluminum trim adds to the quality. It features five LED charging indicators at the bottom next to a power rocker that looks like it came straight from an iPhone.
Between the power button and the LED lights is a Lightning port for charging the power bank, allowing you to charge the power bank with the same cable you use to charge your iPhone. You can even turn on the power bank while charging it with Lightning to charge the iPhone.
Lastly, the power bank features a foldable cover along that back that doubles as an iPhone stand. You can use your iPhone vertically while charging from the power bank, or you can choose between two horizontal stand positions that also work when charging from the power bank.
This all adds up to a more functional power bank and wireless charging battery than Apple’s own offering, and that’s before you consider the 5000mAh capacity battery inside. .
It’s a great choice for iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 users (and soon iPhone 14 users) because of the charging port. The wireless charging feature also works to power AirPods charging cases, and MagSafe support helps with alignment and positioning.
Magnetic Wireless USB-C Power Bank with Stand
Up next from Momax is the Q.MAG POWER 5 with USB-C (IP108). This is a very similar wireless power bank and stand with some differences from the MFi version; the two power banks look very similar. The difference is in how power banks charge and what function they provide.
This power bank snaps onto the back of an iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 via MagSafe for a secure fit and efficient wireless charging. Both power banks also include safety features that prevent overheating, overcharging, and short circuiting with FOB protection.
While the Lightning version sticks with wired input for powering, the USB-C variant features both wired input and output, meaning you can use this power bank as a battery without cord or as a corded battery for even faster power. iPhone wireless charging is limited to 7.5W, and using the built-in USB-C port and a compatible cable boosts iPhone charging to 20W for faster charging. This allows iPhone 8 or later to reach 50% power in 30 minutes.
Both power banks include the glass cover to reveal the internals of the wireless charger, aluminum trim for durability, and an integrated foldable stand attached to the back. The USB-C Power Bank Stand features a different folding design that’s even easier to use in portrait or landscape orientation.
The USB-C version is ideal for iPhone users who already use USB-C accessories (Momax includes a USB-C to USB-C charging cable in the box) or who need the fastest charging options available. a wink. Both power banks feature 5000mAh batteries, but this version is capable of delivering power faster as an option. Just consider the practical trade-off of charging the power bank with the same cable as your iPhone (at least until next year when the iPhone 15 is expected to switch to USB-C).
Magnetic wireless charger and car charger
Finally, Momax offers two more transparent MagSafe chargers for iPhone 12 and above.
For wireless charging when you’re not on the go, Momax delivered a cool and high quality MagSafe USB-C charging cable called Q.MAG 2 (UD21). The four-foot-long braided cable is nice and durable, and the MagSafe side is thin and light.
It pairs an aluminum exterior with a glass cover that shows off the internal charging coils and magnets for a simple, modern look. It’s a great accessory for wirelessly charging your iPhone even while you’re using it, and it also doubles as a Qi-standard charger for other wireless charging accessories, including AirPods.
Finally, we have the Q.MAG MOUNT 3 (CM20) from Momax. This is a universal Qi-enabled wireless charging car kit with a futuristic look and a super slim profile. Inside the box you’ll find the MagSafe-compatible charging plate, a USB-C to USB-C cable, and a flexible mounting adapter that attaches to your car’s air vent.
The Magnetic Wireless Charging Plate uses the same aluminum finish and glass cover that reveals the charging coils and magnets. A power port at the bottom lets you connect any USB-C cable to the wireless charger (including a USB-C to USB-A cable if your car doesn’t have USB-C). Momax even includes a power toggle on the charging plate, so you can optionally use the MagSafe accessory as a phone holder without always charging.
The mounting accessory is also quite versatile, with adjustable clips for maximum compatibility with car air vents. An adjustable swivel also allows you to tilt and rotate the MagSafe Phone Holder in any orientation – this offers a lot more functionality than the basic iPhone MagSafe holders without any charging compatibility, and it’s not no need to provide your own MagSafe charging puck as it is built into the phone holder.
