Apple deal brings iPhone 12 MagSafe Charger to new low price


Apple’s MagSafe wireless charger is on sale for a new low price today

Ars Technica

Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by a new low price on Apple’s MagSafe Charger for the iPhone 12, with the wireless charging pad marked down to just under $30 at Amazon and Walmart. While that’s still not cheap by wireless charger standards, it is $10 off Apple’s MSRP and about $5 off the usual going rate we’ve tracked online over the past couple of months.

We recommended this charger in our guide to the best iPhone 12 accessories for supplying an advertised 15 W of power to Apple’s latest smartphones, which makes it technically faster than most other wireless chargers on the market. It can get an iPhone 12 from 0 to 30 percent charge in about a half-hour and 0 to 60 percent in roughly one hour. Its magnetic design aligns easily and stays attached to those devices with little fuss, and it can work through certain MagSafe-compatible cases.

The usual trade-offs with wireless chargers still apply here, namely that it’s not truly wire-free and that using a traditional USB-C-to-Lightning cable with the appropriate charger will still top your device up noticeably faster. You’ll need a 20 W or higher USB-C 3.0 PD wall charger on hand to reach the MagSafe Charger’s maximum charging rate, too. But if you like the convenience of simply plopping your new iPhone on a pad to charge and are willing to pay a premium for the fastest wireless speeds possible, this deal should make the cost more manageable.
