Design and features

The myCharge MAG-LOCK MagSafe Powerbank is a very portable powerbank to charge various devices. Coming in about the size of a deck of cards, this powerbank is easy to carry. Being MagSafe compatible, this powerbank attaches, and wirelessly charges via magnets to the back of any iPhone 12 or newer iPhone. The magnets are strong, and I never had to worry about it disconnecting. Just attach the powerbank and your iPhone will automatically start charging. There’s an audible chime to let you know it’s charging or if it is depleted.

The single button on the myCharge MAG-LOCK MagSafe Powerbank is really only used to start charging, if it doesn’t automatically start when connected. When it’s on or when it’s charging or being charged, a single green light comes on. In my experience, it gives me about 25%-30% of reserve on my iPhone 13 Mini. It’s perfect for quick top-offs or peace of mind knowing that there is more than enough power to make it back home. If I’m going to be away longer than a day, I’ll bring something bigger, and heavier.

For non-iPhone devices, there is a USB-C port that allows for cabled charging. This singular port is how you would charge the device as well as charge other devices.

When attached magnetically, you will still have full use of your iPhone. This powerbank does not get in the way. The pictures below show the myCharge MAG-LOCK MagSafe Powerbank attached to an iPhone 13 mini. I can comfortably still hold my phone with the charger attached.

There is no setup required. The myCharge MAG-LOCK MagSafe Powerbank comes charged and is ready for use out of the box.


According to the specs printed on the device, attaching the powerbank via the MagSafe method, results in 5W of charging. You will get faster charging when utilizing the USB-C port, topping out at 12W.

What I like

  • Simple, only one button and one port
  • Small, easy to carry
  • Unobtrusive, can still use the iPhone while charging

What I’d change

  • Nitpicking, but faster wireless charging (competitors can charge at 7.5W or 10W)
  • No stand to prop up the iPhone at an angle for viewing while charging

Final thoughts

I have a drawer full of portable powerbanks, but as I head out of the house for a hike or other errand, I find myself grabbing the myCharge MAG-LOCK MagSafe Powerbank first before any of the others. The small size and ability to use MagSafe to charge and still be able to use my iPhone, are great for short trips or when I might be away from a power port for a little while. It’s small and lightweight enough to fit in my hoodie pocket without being cumbersome or in the way. I’ve noticed that it doesn’t get really warm like some other portable powerbanks. This small portable battery has saved me more than a couple of times!
