Looking for specific info?

Does the magsafe icon appear when charging?

No. It doesn’t charge at magsafe speed either.

Does it charge wirelessly while it’s plugged in to usb-c?

Yes, it offers charge-through. You can have the anker plugged to the wall via usb-c while it’s also wirelessly charging your phone. Eventually the phone and the anker will both reach 100%.

I’ve replaced my home charging pad with this because i know it won’t mis-align at night.

Does this do full 15 watt magsafe charging?

This offers 5 watt charging on iphone 12 series. It is magsafe compatible which means it adheres to the device, but it is not capable of charging at the full 15 watts.

Is it 10w wired charging for your phone?

The usb c output is 5v/2a (10w); it can offer an output of up to 10w for a phone.

Es compatible con iphone 8?

Si. Iphone 8 tiene qi. Pero no tiene imanes como las iphone 12 o 13.

I have an iphone 11. Can i just use this as a standard battery bank and charge my phone with a cable? Or is it completely incompatible with my phone?

Yes you can, great little charger. I have an iphone 11 pro max and i got the magnetic case from moment and now can also use it with magnets as well

Can this be recharged in europe with 230v?

It is recharged by usb-c, 11w. You can recharge it so long as you have the correct charging adapter.

To charge it, do i need a lightning cable or a usb c cable?

It is with a usb c input and output port, please charge it using a usb c cable.

Could i charge this with the magsafe charger from apple? Or does it only charge from usb c port?

Only charges from the usb-c port, at about 10watts.

What’s the release day of this product ?

It is released on june 7, 2021

Can i charge the battery with a wireless charger, cuz if i can’t then i don’t see the point?

You can charge it wirelessly with any phone that has wireless charging capabilities. But i am not a fan of this charger. On my iphone 12 it can only get to about 50% wirelessly & maybe 80% using a cord before the charger itself does. It also is 5w max charge. So if you are looking for a fast charge this is not the right item for you.

What is tbe dc voltage & amperage output

It is with 5v/2.2a output.

What magnetic ring would work for iphone se 2020 and this pack?

You don’t need a magnetic ring it attaches to the back of the phone automatically

Can you use this with a pixel 5?

It does not charge a pixel 6 pro, not sure about pixel 5

Can you charge the charger on a wireless charger?

Good question…. Tried charged it on a wireless charger ( apple magsafe charger), and it works but i rather use the manual charging though

Will this work if you have a case on the phone with a round opening showing the apple logo?

Not likely, unless it’s a magsafe case.
Magsafe compatible only assures charging capability, not attachment.

Would this work with a non magsafe case that is considerably thin?

And qi device like airpod pros

Could this handle being charged by the anker nano charger piq 3.0? Would a powerful fast charger, like that be too much for this powerbank.

I use it every day. My iphone 13 takes a long time to be charged but it is perfect for use as a depanneur.

Can you use the apple power adapter with this?

Please charge it using a usb c apple power adapter.

Will this fit iphone 12 pro max with smallrig case?

Could you please offer us a photo of the smallrig case you mentioned? Please contact our customer service for hassle-free support.

Prefect size for traveling

This charger is the ideal size for traveling (or if you’re always on the go). While using the charger, i realized the battery can barely get my phone back to 90% from zero without completely draining the charger, but that’s to be expected with such a small charger. In addition, charging wirelessly does take a bit of time. Nonetheless, i think this is a great addition to any travel pack.

Does not provide even one full charge

I am highly dissatisfied with the product. I have used it as fully charged to charge my new iphone 14 pro max and it died after charging it from 37% to around 70%. Does not do what it says.
Edit: anker customer service reached out and quickly send in a replacement which is doing the job right. Thanks team.

Absolutely the best magsafe battery

I have tried several after market battery banks. Ive tried the pencil type, the brick, the built in case and other ‘magsafe’ batteries and this is by far the best one ive had. I dont go anywhere without it because its so easy to carry in pockets, not very heavy, not vey bulky no wires and it charges my iphone 13 pro completely. The magnet is strong and its comfortable to hold while charging my phone. I also love the texture.

Wireless charging does not work for androids!

So, i got this because it was on sale for bf, small and compact, magnetic, purple, and has wireless capability. I was really excited!

Unfortunately, after fully charging it, i was not able to charge it wirelessly on my android s22+. It would flash blue for about 15 seconds and then turn red. I tried it on my husband’s iphone and it worked fine. Also, the magnectic aspect of it only works well when the case is off.

I really wanted to love this but the fact that it does not charge wirelessly on my android, i don’t feel like paying $20 for it since i have many other portable chargers that works well (anker brand as well).

Update – i appreciate the seller reaching out to help remedy the situation. Although it didn’t work for me, my husband can use it. They sent me another charger that works so i’m very happy about that one. Thanks for checking on your customers and making sure they are happy!

Good for travel

Has advantages over the apple charger like you’d expect, physical switch, led indicators, usb-c, etc. The capacity is good enough for a top off if you’re out or just not near a charger, which is the main purpose of a light and portable charger like this. It fits my iphone 13 mini without hanging off the bottom, which is nice. The soft touch surface and light green color is pleasing, but i’ve noticed it stains pretty easily. I just use a black apple silicon case, and the power bank is noticeably discolored after a few months on the charging side. I don’t really care because it hasn’t affected my case at all.

My only nitpick is that it does get warm, especially if my phone is charging from less than 40% or so. I understand that the 13 mini being small means it has less thermal headroom than the big phones. But even the area around the power button and indicator lights will get very warm.

I like that it works on any phone compatible with wireless charging, even if the magnets don’t stick to it. Passthrough charging is its best feature. It works on my airpods, too. I can leave all lightning cables behind while traveling and just use this as a travel wireless charging pad using passthrough from the wall.

Good quality, did not work wirelessly with samsung s20+

I had read a review that stated this product worked wirelessly with the s20+ so i thought i’d give it a shot… It does not. It will initially start to charge and then the battery will flash red and stop charging. Fortunately i was not counting on this since the description does clearly state it is for apple, but it would have been nice. The other options for android were either too big, expensive or some odd brand. This was exactly the size, quality and brand name i was looking for so wish it had worked. I got a good deal for black friday so i will hang on to this and just use the provided cable to charge my phone.

Will not charge 2 devices at the same time

I love this little portable charger. It works great to charge my iphone 14 pro with magsafe, and works great to charge my juul. However, it will not charge 2 devices at the same time. So you cannot have your phone on charging on the magsafe with another device charging with the usb-c port at the same time. That’s kinda a let down. Ideally, to be able to change 2 devices at the same time would be better.

Another quality product from anker

I’ve had great experience with anker brand products. This battery pack is one of those. Really like the look and feel when mag mounted to my phone. Seems to hold a charge forever. I had the battery fully charged and carried in my purse for months as a back up. It maintained the full charge no problems. The only thing i’d say is mag safe charging time with my phone (iphone 12 pro max) seems to take a long time. Also the battery and phone gets warm when doing so. Not too bad, and it did save my phone several times from being dead. Overall i’m happy with it.

Looks slick, average performance

Great looking wireless battery pack. Charging however is slow and battery life is only enough for one full charge

Simple to use, gets hot though

I am using this on an iphone 12 mini. I like that this battery matches the form factor of the phone. It will charge the phone only 1-2 times before emptying, which is to be expected given its form factor. My only complaint is that the phone will get very hot while using this so i really only use it for short charge ups.

Small and convenient

I bought this to replace my regular portable charger and eliminate the need for a cord. The zanier battery pack is small and very convenient to carry. It securely attaches to the magsafe on the back of my iphone and charges with no issues. To charge the phone you do have to hit the power switch on the charger.

My only complaint about this pack is the charging capacity. On my iphone 12 pro max the anker pack will charge the phone to about 59% (if the phone isn’t in use). If you are using the phone you will get about 45% out of the charger. I don’t consider this too bad though because i only use it for emergencies where my phone is literally about to die and i don’t have access to a charger.

I would recommend this battery pack to anyone looking for one

Great alternative to apple's magsafe battery if you don't care about software integration

This battery is priced much more fairly and has a higher capacity than apple’s own magsafe battery. Of course, you won’t get the software integration of apple’s battery with anker, but is the software features worth an extra $50-60, while losing out on battery capacity? That’s up to you.

Anker’s battery has a more than strong enough magnet that keeps itself locked into place, which would be a huge issue if it didn’t. I have an iphone 13 mini, and this battery charged my phone from roughly 35%-100% and still had a bit of battery left.

The thing about all magsafe batteries, though, is extremely low charging speeds. Anker’s battery suffers from this as well, i believe topping out at 5 watts. This is also an issue with apple’s version as well, though. I think eventually the manufacturers will figure out how to increase both charging speed and capacity in the future, but in the meantime this is one downside for me as you’ll have to keep the battery attached to your phone for hours if you’re trying to charge from less than 50% to full.

Something else i like about the battery is how well it fits with my iphone 13 mini. It’s aligned perfectly as if it were meant for the mini. This makes the previous issue of charging speeds less of an issue, because using your phone with the battery attached doesn’t feel overly cumbersome, in my opinion.

Another nice feature with anker’s magsafe battery (i believe apple’s version does this as well) is that you can plug the battery into the wall to keep it charged, then place your phone on top of it and use it as a charging pad. I believe you may even get slightly higher charging speeds with this method as well.

If you’re trying to decide over this battery or apple’s version, here’s an overview:

get the anker version if:
– you don’t care about software integration
– you prefer a larger capacity
– you don’t want to pay the ‘apple tax’

get apple’s version if:
– you do appreciate the software integration
– you only plan to use the battery to top off your phone’s battery in a pinch
– you like the all-white design and apple’s simplistic branding

Convenient, works well enough

A friend brought her’s to dinner and ordered mine before leaving the restaurant. Works well enough for my iphone 12 pro. It’s convenient to just slap on and charges relatively quickly enough.

I’d be much happier if the battery life were a bit better. With other anker devices i have, i will get multiple charges (~2, 2.5) out of them, and this one doesn’t seem to do that. A sacrifice for convenience, i suppose, which this one is.
