Barring the iPhone SE, all of Apple's iPhone models available in the market come with MagSafe technology. And yes, that tech supports wireless charging. However, it does more than just top up your battery. Paired with a MagSafe case (or at least one with MagSafe compatibility), keeping your iPhone charged is just the beginning. The magnetic attachment point is designed to pair with a wide array of great magnetic accessories, and we've collected the best ones here. 

Below, you'll find stands and kickstands, wallets, power banks, car mounts and more, and all accessories on our list adhere to the back of your iPhone or MagSafe-compatible iPhone case. So if you're looking for the best MagSafe accessories for your Apple devices, you're in the right spot.

Some "MagSafe" accessories are official, Apple-licensed products while others aren't. The main difference is that accessories that aren't Apple-certified won't be able to charge at the highest speeds (up to 15 watts). But in a lot of cases, the lack of certification won't change how well the product performs, though some non-Apple-certified MagSafe-compatible accessories sometimes lack strong enough magnets.

Here's a look at my current favorite MagSafe accessories. Note that I've personally used all of the products listed below. We'll update this list as we discover new top accessories.

Best magnetic power bank with integrated stand

Anker 622 MagGo magnetic battery

What's cool about Anker's 622 magnetic battery is that it's a wireless battery that has an integrated magnetic flap that converts into a stand. You won't get fast wireless charging from this 5,000-mAh battery (it charges at up to 7.5 watts) but it's slim and easy to carry around. 

It charges via USB-C and if you use a USB-C to Lighting to charge your iPhone, it will charge at a faster rate of 12 watts. That's not as fast as what a 20-watt USB-C power adapter can deliver, but it's faster than 7.5 watts.

Note that Anker has updated this model to move the charging port to the side (from the bottom), so you can charge it while using it as a stand. That's a worthy upgrade worth the $5 premium versus the old version (which confusingly retains the same model number).

Baseus Magnetic Mini Wireless Portable Charger

The Baseus Magnetic Mini Wireless Portable Charger is a compact 6,000-mAh wireless power bank that sticks to the back of MagSafe-enabled iPhones (or MagSafe-enabled iPhone cases) and charges your iPhone at 7.5 watts. If you're looking for faster charging, you can plug a USB-C to Lightning cable into the battery and get 20-watt charging speeds. It also offers pass-through charging (you can charge the battery while charging your phone). 

The battery is similar in size to many 5,000-mAh batteries and also costs less. That 6,000-mAh capacity will get you close to a full charge with most iPhones, though it may fall a bit short for iPhone Max models.

Four MyCharge Superhero MagLocks, in different colors.
$40 at Amazon

Wireless battery charger

MyCharge Superhero MagLock

You don't want your phone to go dead on the mountain so it's always good to pack a battery pack.

MyCharge calls its new line of magnetic power banks Superhero MagLock, implying that they're real saviors. I was impressed by their design. Not only do the batteries, which come in various capacities, have strong magnets and stick really well to the back of your iPhone 12, 13 or 14, but they have raised coils, which are supposed to help with reducing heat levels while charging. It does seem to work.

The 3,000-mAh battery is lightweight and slim and is nice to have around for some emergency charging. However, it won't get you a full charge, so you'll probably want to step up to one of the higher-capacity options like the 6,000-mAh model, which retails for $60, but you can currently grab for 30% off with the on-page instant coupon. The 9,000-mAh version is beefy and feels like your phone is attached to a small brick -- the battery and phone do fit in your hand nicely, but the combo certainly isn't pocket-friendly.

All the MagLock batteries charge Qi-enabled iPhones at 5 watts, although you can get faster charging if you go wired and use a USB-C to Lightning cable. I also liked how there's a chime when the charging starts and your phone tells you how much juice is left in the battery pack (it's tied into iOS 15). You can wirelessly charge Android devices as well but the MagLock won't stick unless you have a metal ring on the back of your phone's case (stick-on rings are available).

The SuperHero MagLock is available in a few colors and has a glossy finish. It's currently the best designed magnetic power bank -- better even than Apple's.

Best true MagSafe power bank not made by Apple

Mophie Powerstation 10K Stand with MagSafe

Mophie's Powerstation Wireless Stand with MagSafe is currently only sold through Apple and Zagg, Mophie's parent company. It's not cheap, but it is a versatile 10,000-mAh battery battery with both a stand and MagSafe charger built in, and also has a threaded tripod mount at the bottom. 

Since this is an official MagSafe charger, the battery does charge at 15 watts, making this among the fastest wireless external battery chargers out there and will also charge the AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro models with MagSafe. If you use a USB-C-to-Lighting cable (not included) with it, you can charge at 20-watt speeds. You can also charge two devices at the same time.

Baseus Magnetic Wireless Power Bank with flip-out kickstand

If you're looking for a bigger portable battery that charges your phone wirelessly, the Baseus Magnetic Wireless Power Bank is an excellent option. It houses a 10,000-mAh battery that can charge an iPhone 14 around two times -- but it's still somewhat compact. 

The magnet is strong, and I also liked that it has an integrated flip-out kickstand, so it converts into a stand. There's also an LED battery life indicator on back of the battery that tells you exactly how much juice the battery has left (you see the actual percentage). The Baseus Magnetic Wireless Power Bank is available in three color options with the black version currently costing a few bucks less.

RapidX Boosta

The RapidX Boosta magnetic wireless portable charger comes in a variety of colors and is about $10 less than some magnetic 5,000-mAh battery power banks. This isn't an official Apple MagSafe accessory, but it magnetically adheres to the back of your MagSafe-enabled iPhone or MagSafe case -- yes, its magnet is strong -- and can also be used with other phones that support wireless charging.

Wireless charging speeds are limited to 7.5 watts for iPhones, but if you need a faster charge, you can connect a USB-C to Lightning cable to bump the speed up to 10 watts. Just note that it will fall a little short of a full charge for a Pro Max, so you may want to upgrade to a larger power bank if you're using that model.

Magnetic folding stands/wallets

$30 at Clckr

Clckr Stand and Grip (2nd gen)

Clckr's new, trimmer Stand and Grip is one of my favorite MagSafe accessories. The accessory really sticks to the back of your MagSafe-enabled phone or MagSafe-enabled case and not only makes it easier to hold up your phone but when converted into a kickstand, it props up your device nicely in portrait or landscape mode for video calls or video watching.

This new version is lighter than the original and available in several colors. It's one of the best MagSafe stands out there.

Moft Snap-on Magnetic Stand and Wallet

This accessory from Moft not only acts as a magnetic wallet that adheres to the back of your MagSafe-enabled iPhone (or case), but it converts into a stand that can be used to prop up your phone horizontally or vertically. The wallet fits a couple of credit cards (you can stretch it a bit to get three in there) and the accessory has a fairly strong magnet, so it stays on your phone pretty well.

I'm showing it in light blue but it's available in several colors. You can also buy this as a bundle for $60 with Moft's MagSafe case, which is a nice case.

Gear4 by Zagg Ring Snap 360

Zagg's Gear4 Ring Snap 360 is a ring accessory that converts into a stand. It not only feels solid but looks sleek and has a strong magnet that allows the accessory to stick securely to the back of your iPhone or MagSafe-enabled case. The stand works better for propping up your phone horizontally (in landscape mode) but can also prop it up vertically at about a 45-degree angle. It's available in two colors, but the rose gold model is currently available only on Zagg's website.

Anker 610 Magnetic Phone Grip

The Anker 610 magnetic phone grip is one of the more affordable MagSafe accessories. It has a strong magnet and you can use the retractable ring to hold your phone securely in your hand or as a kickstand. It allows you to prop up your phone horizontally but not vertically. Some other MagSafe stands do both.

PopSockets PopWallet Plus for Magsafe

If you're a PopSockets fan, you have a couple of MagSafe options. There's the more standard PopGrip ($30) and the PopWallet Plus for MagSafe ($40), which combines a magnetic wallet that stores a few credit cards and a PopGrip that gives you a grip and kickstand option.

Apple Leather Wallet With Find My

Apple's official MagSafe wallet is more expensive than a lot of third-party magnetic wallets, but the one thing it has that the other ones don't is compatibility with Apple's Find My network. But don't expect to track it down like an AirTag: It really just signals if and when it becomes detached. It's available in five colors.

Belkin MagSafe Wireless Charger with Kickstand

Belkin's MagSafe Wireless Charger with Kickstand is essentially a better version of Apple's own wireless MagSafe charger because it integrates a flip-out kickstand, allowing you to watch videos on your iPhone as you charge (or play games if you have a wireless game controller).

It does charge at up to 15 watts and comes in three color options: black, white and blue. Alas, no power adapter is included (the cable is integrated into the charging puck).

$70 at Amazon

Anker 637 Magnetic Desktop Charging Station

The Anker 637 has a magnetic charging pad on one side and seven charging ports on the back: two USB-C, two USB-A and three standard AC outlets. The USB-C ports deliver up to a 65-watt charge when charging one device -- or 45- and 20-watt if charging two devices simultaneously. So yes, you can use it to charge most laptops that charge via USB-C.

For MagSafe-enabled iPhones, the wireless charging pad charges at 7.5 watts. You can only charge Android phones if you stick a metal ring accessory (sold separately) on the back of your device and place it in the right spot. You can also save $30 right now by activating the instant coupon on the product page.

Anker 633 2-in-1 MagGo Charging Stand

Anker's 633 2-in-1 MagGo charging stand has more components than you might think at first glance. Not only is it a charging stand that also has a spot to charge your AirPods (or any earbuds with a wireless charging case and even a second phone), but the wireless charging pad is actually a 5,000-mAh portable battery, which is why I put it in the wireless battery section.

Since this isn't an Apple blessed MagSafe charger, it only charges at up to 7.5 watts (not 15). It comes in black, white or light blue.

belkin-boost-charge-pro-3-in-1-3

Belkin Boost Pro 3-in-1 Charging Pad

The Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 is an Apple-certified MagSafe accessory so it offers fast (15-watt) wireless charging for your MagSafe-enabled iPhone as well the Apple Watch.

It includes a 40-watt adapter and I charged an iPhone 13 Pro, the third-generation AirPods and Watch Series 7 at the same time. Like the Boost Charge Watch fast-charger, the adjustable Watch module accommodates any Apple Watch case size in either flat or in nightstand mode. You can also charge a second phone on the AirPods slot, but you don't get fast-charging there -- it only offers 5-watt charging. 

This is certainly a nice charging station for Apple devices. It has a sleek, elegant design, with a soft-to-the-touch silicone finish. My only gripe? That finish is a dust magnet and I had to wipe it down with an alcohol towelette to remove any dust particles before I photographed it. The black shows more dust so I'd recommend getting the white version (of both chargers) rather than the black.

iOttie Velox Magnetic Wireless Charging Car Mount

iOttie offers this MagSafe-compatible wireless car charger with a car vent mount. It has a strong magnet, so your iPhone stays on the mount, and it also has an integrated USB-C cable and cigarette-lighter power adapter so you're ready to start charging out of the box. Note that the iPhone's "fast" charging caps out at 7.5 watts.

Spigen OneTap Designed for MagSafe Car Mount

Spigen's OneTap magnetic car mount comes in a few different versions, including an air vent and dashboard versions. This version is just a magnetic mount, not a wireless charger. You have to step up to the Spigen OneTap Pro ($40) to get wireless charging.

This model features a telescopic arm and fairly strong magnet. However, it's not quite as strong as the one in Belkin's car mount (see below). While it's quite affordable at around $40, there's no cigarette lighter power adapter included (a USB-C cable is, however).

The Belkin Car Vent Mount Pro with MagSafe has a powerful magnet
$0 at Amazon

Belkin Car Vent Mount Pro with MagSafe

Belkin's Car Vent Mount Pro with MagSafe technically isn't a charger. It's just a certified MagSafe vent mount. Belkin also has a wireless charging version of this (it costs $40 without the car charger, $60 with it), but you'd have to connect a cable to it anyway for charging. The advantage of a wireless version would be that unlike with this vent mount, you wouldn't have to plug a cable into your phone every time you want to charge it. I have a USB-C-to-LIghtning cable set up in the car for fast charging, but I don't love the extra step of having to plug in the cable each time I want to charge the phone.

All that said, what sets this Belkin apart from other generic, non-MagSafe-certified mounts that look similar (and some even offer wireless charging), is that the Belkin has a very strong magnet while many of these other vent mounts don't. If you have a MagSafe case on your phone, or just a naked newer iPhone model, the phone really sticks to the mount. The clip also keeps the mount securely in your vent and you can rotate the mount from portrait to landscape mode as needed.

Belkin iPhone Mount with MagSafe for Mac Notebooks

You can now turn your iPhone into a webcam using the Continuity Camera features in the latest version of MacOS. What's cool about the Belkin iPhone Mount with MagSafe for Mac Notebooks is that you can use it as a kickstand to prop your iPhone up in landscape mode. And you can use the flip side of the mount to attach your phone to the top of your MacBook in landscape or portrait mode for webcam use.

Monitor and laptop mount with slot for Apple MagSafe wireless charger

STM MagArm

STM's MagArm is designed to stick to the back of your laptop or computer monitor with the help of an integrated suction cup. Some people have complained that the suction cup doesn't adhere securely enough, but I attached the MagArm to both a monitor and laptop and it adhered just fine if you follow the instructions correctly. I used it with an iPhone 14 Pro, which is a pretty heavy phone, but I didn't use it with an iPhone 14 Max Pro or Max Plus.

You can adjust the mount so it sits horizontally (on the side) or vertically (on top) of your laptop or monitor. And what's nice about it, if you own Apple's wireless MagSafe charging puck, there's a dock for it built into the mount so you can keep your phone charged (you could also just plug your phone into a a wired charger). 

While the the MagArm is bigger and bulkier than some laptop MagSafe mounts, it's sturdily constructed. You can peel the suction cup off your laptop (it doesn't leave a mark) and you can remount it when you need to use it again.

Joby Beamo LED Ring Light for MagSafe

The Joby Beamo LED Ring Light for MagSafe is a nifty MagSafe ring light that adheres magnetically to the back of your iPhone but can be used with the front selfie camera as well as shots using the rear camera. Equipped with an integrated rechargeable battery that charges via USB-C, it's well designed and uses a "flattering soft" 5600K Daylight color temperature with 4 levels of brightness you can toggle through. 

It's also worth noting that it has a built-in mirror for checking yourself out before you shoot.

Joby GripTight System for MagSafe

Joby makes bendable tripods for cameras and smartphones and its products are a staple of vloggers and other content creators. Sometimes it's a little cumbersome to get your phone out of their clamping mounts, which is what's appealing about the company's new MagSafe options. You can simply stick your phone to the mount; it adheres magnetically.

My iPhone 13 Pro stuck pretty securely to the GripTight mount. I was testing it with an Otterbox MagSafe-enabled case, so I wasn't really worried about the phone getting jostled and falling off the mount. But if you want a more secure fit, you have the option of using the "hybrid" clamp to really lock your phone onto the mount. The clamp works in both vertical and horizontal modes and when you're going the magnetic route only, you can easily swivel your phone into a horizontal or vertical position.

Joby is currently selling three GripTight for MagSafe accessories. There's a simple wall-mount option, a GripTight Mount for MagSafe that can be added to any GorillaPod (or tripod for that matter), as well as a bundle that includes a GorillaPod and GripTight Mount (arms for the GorillaPod are sold separately). All three new MagSafe options are also compatible with Joby's Wavo Mobile, Beamo Mini and RangePod accessories.

Belkin Magnetic Phone Mount With Face Tracking

Belkin's magnetic phone mount with face tracking is designed for folks who shoot their own selfie videos for TikTok, Instagram and other social media platforms with a MagSafe-enabled iPhone. (The device has a companion iOS app but not an Android app.) There are competing products out there like the Pivo Pod Lite ($80), but this is MagSafe-enabled so all you have to do is stick your phone on the mount -- you can simply turn your phone to place it in landscape or portrait mode. The pedestal automatically turns as your phone follows your face while you're shooting yourself. 

To be clear, this is not for FaceTime or WhatsApp or WeChat video calls. It doesn't have to be plugged so it's easy to move around the room and place wherever you want. However, it's not equipped with rechargeable batteries. It's powered by three AA batteries that do give the pedestal some added weight for stability.

Moment makes a few different photography-oriented MagSafe accessories, including a couple of tripod mounts. With the Pro tripod mount you can choose to just use the magnets or lock your phone in for added security. This may not work as well with the larger Pro Max model, but the standard iPhone 14 and 14 Pro are lighter and are less likely to become detached (magnets are only so strong).

Watch this: MacOS Ventura Continuity Camera Turns Your iPhone Into a Webcam

Here are a few things to keep in mind when buying MagSafe-related accessories, particularly so-called MagSafe charging products:

  • A true MagSafe wireless charger will get you the potential for the fastest wireless charging rate (up to 15 watts instead 7.5 watts or 10 watts that some chargers deliver) on iPhones.
  • Official MagSafe products -- those blessed by Apple -- include a Made for MagSafe badge on the box. However, plenty of other manufacturers have created magnetic wireless chargers that look and feel like MagSafe accessories. These MagSafe technology copycat devices are also far more affordable than the official MagSafe offerings, but here's the catch: they offer less powerful charging (limited to 7.5 watts). We've included these non-official products in this list, but know that they'll charge only half as fast (for iPhones), even if they are capable of wirelessly charging certain Android smartphones at up to 15 watts (those that support 15-watt fast wireless charging).
  • Do not expect a MagSafe or magnetic accessory to stick to a non-MagSafe case. MagSafe accessories should be used directly with a naked MagSafe-enabled iPhone or MagSafe-enabled case. Alternatively, you can add a stick-on metal ring accessory to the back of a non MagSafe phone or case. However, it's best to use a MagSafe-enabled case with MagSafe and other magnetic accessories. 
  • To get that maximum power, you'll need a 20-watt USB-C PD charger -- ideally one that is Power Delivery 3.0-certified. (The iPhone 13, iPhone 13 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro Max and iPhone 13 Mini include a USB-C to Lightning cable in the box, but not the charger.) Some companies offer bundles that include a MagSafe wireless charging puck with a USB-C power adapter while others, like Apple, sell the puck and power adapter separately. 
  • Most of the MagSafe chargers (aftermarket and MagSafe-certified) will charge other Qi-compatible devices, like select older iPhones and Android phones. You just won't get the magnetic adhesion.
  • If you need to also get a charger, our list of best USB-C chargers has plenty of options. That will, of course, work for wired charging, too -- which will always be faster than MagSafe or other wireless charging options.
