Are you running out of battery on your iPhone? If you want to get the most out of your phone, here we recommend some external batteries that can be very useful. These batteries have MagSafe technology, with which you gain comfort when using your phone, and you will also have a completely free Lightning port, so you can connect all kinds of accessories, and thus you will not be limited by the lack of ports available.
The best external Powerbanks for your iPhone
External batteries or Powerbanks are useful solutions to have an extra charge on your phone battery. Although it is true that the iPhone Pro or Pro Max models have the most battery capacity, if you have a “standard” size iPhone or an older model, these accessories will help you.
Our favorite MagSafe batteries
The first recommendation is the Anker 521 battery. It is compatible with the iPhone 12 and 13. In all its variants: from the mini size, to Pro Max. It has a capacity of 5,000mAh, which gives more than enough, one or even two full charges. Let’s remember that the iPhone 12 has a 2,815 mAh battery. And the iPhone 12 mini, 2,227 mAh. With these figures, your iPhone will be more “Pro”, even without bearing the factory name.
Anker’s battery also charges via USB-C and is compatible with MagSafe cases. In other words, if your case supports this technology, you can use this battery without having to remove and put the case on each time. It is available in 4 colors so you can choose the best “look” to give your iPhone one (or several) extra energy shots.
ESR HaloLock Mini can also be a mini dock
Our next recommendation is the ESR HaloLock Mini battery. It shares many characteristics with the previous one. From compatibility with all sizes of iPhone 12, 13 and 14; the 5,000mAh capacity or MagSafe technology. In addition, this external battery offers an extra feature: a kickstand.
In this way, you will not only be buying a battery, but an integrated “mini dock”. This kickstand is reminiscent of the system that the Nintendo Switch uses in desktop mode. In addition, the battery can be placed both vertically and horizontally. Thus, we have an extra both in functionality and comfort, when using our iPhone. In the same way as in the previous case, the battery is charged with a USB-C cable.
Magnetic battery with ring and iWALK support
Another of our recommendations is the battery with MagSafe iWALK. In this case, we gain charging capacity, since we went from 5,000 mAh to 6,000mAh. However, we lose compatibility with the iPhone 12 and 13 mini models, due to the size of the product. However, it is compatible with the ranges of standard, Pro and Pro Max sizes of the iPhone 12, 13 and 14. (And also, with the size of the iPhone 14 Plus).
It is an external battery that has MagSafe technology and offers a small “plus” of comfort. And it is that it has a fastening ring, which in turn works as a dock to place the iPhone horizontally on a flat surface. As with the other cases, it can also be used with a MagSafe (magnetized) case and recharges with a USB-C cable.
Apple could not miss this party
We know you like Apple. But if you like “very much”, you also have the official Apple MagSafe external battery. This external battery, being an Apple brand, offers greater integration within the iPhone software, such as seeing the percentages of both batteries in the iOS widgets, or at the top of the phone screen.
It is compatible with all sizes of iPhone 12, 13 and 14, and unlike the previous ones, it charges with Lightning connector instead of USB-C. In the words of Apple itself, it offers “up to 70% more charge for the iPhone 12 or 13 mini”, and up to “60% more charge for the iPhone 12, 13 and 14 (standard and Pro)”. Taking into account that the battery life of the iPhone mini is lower, compared to its “big brothers”, we will make much better use of the payload of our phone.
