MagSafe accessories are a convenient way of adding more function to your iPhone without having to permanently attach anything. With a MagSafe-compatible portable battery pack, you can slap it directly on the back of your phone and give it a quick charge. This one from Anker — that’s 43 percent off today on Amazon — even has a foldable kickstand you can use to prop your phone up to watch videos or make a FaceTime call while you’re charging.
It doesn’t pack enough juice to fully recharge an iPhone 14 Pro, but it gets close and should be enough to hold you off until you reach a charger. Sarah Haege, associate director of e-commerce partnerships and business development at Vox Media, took it on a recent trip to Japan and said that although wireless charging isn’t as fast as old-fashioned cable charging, the convenience is worth it.
