    MagSafe Battery Pack for £99 from Apple UK

    Apple in July unveiled its rumored MagSafe Battery Pack, introducing an add-on battery that’s designed to work with the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro Max. Priced at £99, the MagSafe Battery Pack provides extra battery life for the ‌iPhone 12‌ lineup and it also has a few nifty features, such as a reverse wireless charging option that lets it be charged through the iPhone.

    Design
    The MagSafe Battery Pack has a rectangular design that matches the shape of the ‌iPhone‌, and it attaches to the back of an ‌iPhone 12‌, 12 mini, 12 Pro, or 12 Pro Max to provide extra power.

    Apple only debuted the MagSafe Battery Pack in white, and it has an Apple logo. It is sized to take up the full rear of the ‌iPhone 12 mini‌ below the camera cutout, while it has a smaller fit on the other ‌iPhone‌ models.

    Charging Speed
    The MagSafe Battery Pack charges an ‌iPhone 12‌ model at 5W when out and about, with Apple limiting charging speed due to heat concerns and to prolong battery life.

    When the MagSafe Battery Pack is attached to an ‌iPhone‌ and plugged in to a Lightning to USB-C cable that’s connected to a 20W or higher charger, the ‌iPhone‌ is able to charge through the MagSafe Battery Pack at 15W.

    Most people will need the MagSafe Battery Pack while on the go, and in this situation, it’s good to be aware that charging is limited to a slower 5W speed.

    The MagSafe Battery Pack has a 7.62V, 11.13Wh battery inside, with an mAh of 1460. Comparatively, the ‌iPhone 12‌ and 12 Pro have a 10.78Wh battery, the ‌iPhone 12 mini‌ has an 8.57Wh battery, and the 12 Pro Max has a 14.13Wh battery.

    Qi-based wireless charging is not efficient and some of the battery capacity is lost, so it’s not entirely clear just how much the MagSafe Battery Pack will charge up an ‌iPhone 12‌, especially as charging capacity may vary based on temperature conditions.

    Reverse Charging
    The MagSafe Battery Pack has a reverse wireless charging feature. This means that if you charge your ‌iPhone‌, the MagSafe Battery Pack will also charge at the same time.

    So you can charge both the ‌iPhone‌ and the MagSafe Battery Pack through the Lightning port on the MagSafe Battery Pack or through the Lightning port on the ‌iPhone‌, and you’ll get the same ultimate result with both devices charging up.
