A true MagSafe charger is different than other wireless chargers, in that it can charge your iPhone faster.

Every iPhone 12, iPhone 13, iPhone 14 and iPhone 15 supports the MagSafe charging system. This allows them to be compatible with an ecosystem of magnetic accessories, yes — but more importantly, it allows them to wirelessly charge more quickly when connected to a legitimate MagSafe accessory.

Of course, trying to figure out which of these accessories are the best ones for you, your phone and your needs can be something of a hassle. So to help you out, we've rounded up a selection of the best true MagSafe chargers you can buy for your fancy new (or even not-so-new) iPhone.

We've been writing about and reviewing smartphone accessories products for near-on a decade. We've had hand-on testing with the vast majority of the below MagSafe chargers. We've also included a few MagSafe entries that are made by brands we trust and aim to get hands-on with them in the near future.

To learn more about our testing methodology and how we evaluate products, head here.

Apple's entry-level MagSafe charger is the best option for most people. It doesn't come with a wall adapter, so Apple recommends pairing it with a 20-watt USB-C adapter for optimal charging speeds.

The MagSafe Duo is Apple's fancy 2-in-1 wireless charger that has a foldable design and can simultaneously charge any model of compatible iPhone and an Apple Watch. It doesn't come with a wall adapter.

For a deeper look, read our full review of the MagSafe Duo.

This is a 3-in-1 wireless charger for your iPhone 12, Apple Watch and AirPods Pro. It supports 15-watt wireless charging over MagSafe, so it can fast-charge your iPhone. It comes with an AC wall adapter.

This is essentially a souped-up version of Apple's MagSafe Duo. It has a similar foldable design, but it's a 3-in-1 wireless charger (rather than 2-in-1) that supports MagSafe; in addition to spots for charging an iPhone and an Apple Watch, it adds a dedicated spot for charging your AirPods or AirPods Pro. It also comes with a USB-C wall adapter (which the MagSafe Duo does not) and a fabric carrying case.

This is essentially a smaller, cheaper version of the Belkin Boost Up Charge Pro that lacks a dedicated charging puck for the Apple Watch. It can wireless charge your iPhone and AirPods simultaneously. And it supports MagSafe's full 15 watts of power.

This is Mophie's 3-in-1 wireless charger for your iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods. It has a new weighted steel base, adjustable stand and is fully MagSafe compatible. (For Samsung Galaxy owners, it comes with two watch adapters: one for Apple Watch and one for Galaxy Watch.)

Nomad's gorgeous wireless charger is pretty high-end. It's made of metal and glass and weighs roughly a pound, meaning it's not going to lift off your desk every time you go to pick up your iPhone. It's also what makes it so expensive. The only other downside is that it does not come with a wall adapter.

(Nomad also makes the Base One Max ($150), which is a Base One with a charging puck for the Apple Watch.)

The Stand One is essentially a stand version of Nomad's Base One. It's made of the same premium materials — a solid metal body paired with a glass top — and weighs just over a pound, so it won't move when you go to grab your iPhone. It's fully MFi certified for MagSafe. The only catch is that it does not come with the necessary 20-watt USB-C wall adapter, so you'll have to buy that separately. Available in silver or black (carbide).

Released in 2023, Belkin's newest MagSafe charger in its BoostCharge line is a 2-in-1 wireless charging pad that rests flat on your desk and can simultaneously charge your iPhone and AirPods (with a wireless charging case). It's available in black or white. And yes, it comes with the necessary 20-watt wall adapter to power it.

This is Mophie's 2-in-1 charging stand that's designed for iPhone and AirPods — and yes, it's fully compatible with MagSafe. It has a weighted base to prevent you from lifting it off the desk every time you go to grab your iPhone.

Released in mid-2022, the HiRise 3 is a 3-in-1 wireless charging pad for iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods. It fully supports MagSafe and its fast charging speeds, but you'll need to purchase a 20-watt USB-C power adapter separately because it isn't included in the box. Available in white or black.

OtterBox's charging station is fit charge your Apple Watch and iPhone. It's fully compatible with MagSafe. It also has a weighted base so it won't jump off the desk when you go to pick up your gadgets. It comes with the necessary 36-watt adapter and USB-C charging cables, so it'll work straight out of the box. This is one of the few multi-device chargers that Apple sells itself.

The beauty of a true MagSafe charger is that it can wirelessly charge an iPhone significantly faster; specifically, it can charge any compatible iPhone at 15 watts, which is twice as fast as the 7.5 watts of a Qi-wireless charger. Apple has designed any true MagSafe charger its Made for MagSafe (MFI) certification, meaning it can wirelessly charge any iPhone at its max speed.

Note: The only outlier with MagSafe are the "mini" iPhones — both have been recently discontinued — which support MagSafe, but can only charge at a max of 12 watts over MagSafe instead of 15.

There's a lot of marketing around MagSafe, and some of it can be misleading. If you see a wireless charger that's advertised as "MagSafe compatible," this means that it is not MFI certified. It will magnetically connect to your iPhone and wirelessly charge it, but it will not fast charge your iPhone at its max charging speeds. These chargers are still good and useful, but they're just not as good as true MFI-certified MagSafe chargers.

Just like the newest iPhones, most wireless chargers — MagSafe or Qi — don't ship with a wall adapter to charge them; brands do this to keep the cost down (and as an environmental initiative). While this is a good thing for our planet, it also can be an inconvenience if you don't have a spare power adapter lying around, as you'll need to buy one separately.

When picking a wall adapter for your MagSafe charger, you'll want to buy one that's 20-watt (or higher) and supports Power Delivery (PD). This ensures that your MagSafe charger will properly power your MagSafe wireless charger. (Check out our guide to the best wall chargers for your iPhone.)
