If you're a proud owner of the newly introduced iPhone 13, but have concerns about the device's battery life, chances are you've probably been eyeing Apple's MagSafe Battery Pack accessory for a while now. But as compact and as convenient as it is, the $99 price tag makes for a less compelling purchase for most users.
Fortunately, AT&T currently has the Apple MagSafe Battery Pack on sale for $84.15. And although that's roughly just $15 off, this price cut is the biggest we've seen since the accessory launched. And if you're one of those users who has skipped this year's lineup and decided to hold on to the iPhone 12 for a little longer, the great news is that this wireless MagSafe accessory is compatible with all iPhone 12 & 13 models, regardless of the size.
There are a number of third-party battery packs out there, some of which you've probably already considered buying. However, Apple's MagSafe Battery Pack offers wireless charging on-the-go that's effortless within Apple's ecosystem. And with the MagSafe strong attachment technology, you won't need to worry about it falling out of your hands while holding your iPhone.
It can deliver up to 15W charging when attached, and all you need to do in order to use it is simply pop it on the back of your smartphone; the MagSafe technology will then find the right placement for you. The charging is done on an automatic basis, too, so there's no need to manually turn it on or off.
For reference, it can provide up to 70% additional charge for an iPhone 12 mini or an iPhone 13 mini, up to 60% additional charge for an iPhone 12/iPhone 13/iPhone 12 Pro/iPhone 13 Pro, and up to 40% additional charge for an iPhone 12 Pro Max or an iPhone 13 Pro Max.
We've tested the product ourselves, and in our Apple MagSafe Battery Pack hands-on review we were impressed with how easy it is to use and the fact that it has no overheating issues. We also liked its thinner size compared to its competitors.
And if you're concerned about MagSafe affecting your personal items, Apple has confirmed that "there's no interference with your credit cards or key fobs either."
According to Apple, the MagSafe Battery Pack can charge your phone even faster "when coupled with a 27W or higher charger, like those that ship with MacBook."
One thing to keep in mind though is that a charging cable doesn't come included with the MagSafe accessory, meaning you'll need to purchase a 20W or higher USB-C Power Adapter and USB-C to Lightning Cable separately.
Overall, this deal is hard to miss out on, especially since the MagSafe Battery Pack has never before had a price cut this big. Hurry though, as stock is limited.
