We recently talked about how Apple was developing an external battery for the new iPhone 12 that would be connected through the MagSafe system, but an accessory manufacturer Anker has been ahead of those in Cupertino and has presented its PowerCore Magnetic 5K Wireless Power Bank.
Anker’s Power Core Magnetic attaches magnetically to the back of the iPhone 12 and provides power using the Qi wireless charging standard. It is a MagSafe compatible accessory, although not officially certified, so the charging speed is limited to 7.5W.
According to 9to5Mac, Anker’s new MagSafe accessory has a capacity of 5000mAh. You can charge iPhone 12 mini to 100%; the iPhone 12 at 97%; the iPhone 12 Pro at 95% and the iPhone 12 Pro Max at 75%, according to the company.
Although the main function of the PowerCore Magnetic is to charge the iPhone, it also has a USB-C port that can be used to power other devices. In turn, this same port is used to recharge the accessory’s internal battery.
As indicated by Anker, the MagSafe accessory offers a simple and convenient way to charge the iPhone. Just attach PowerCore magnetically to the back of your phone and watch the charging power flow, they say.
The PowerCore Magnetic is one of the many accessories that the manufacturer presented at CES 2021. It is already available to buy, for now, in the United States. On Amazon, it can be purchased for $39.99 and deliveries are expected to begin on March 3 of this year.
As for Apple’s external battery with MagSafe, according to Bloomberg, it was scheduled to hit the market after the presentation of the iPhone 12. However, the Cupertino company would have encountered some drawbacks that delayed its development.
