If you have an iPhone 12 or iPhone 13, you should seriously use Apple’s MagSafe accessory system. Good news! Three of our favorite MagSafe accessories are on sale for Amazon Prime Day: Anker’s MagGo 633 for $ 96 ($ 24 off), MagGo 637 for $ 70 ($ 30 off)and MagGo 623 for $ 60 ($ 20 off). These three are all wireless chargers of some sort, but they have a few extra tricks up their sleeve (details below). For the first two, these are the lowest prices we have ever tracked.
We strongly recommend using a MagSafe iPhone cover because it will not weaken the MagSafe system – the MagSafe case has their own ring of magnets on the inside. And what do you know? Apple’s official MagSafe cases are all for sale for $ 39 ($ 10 off).

Why we like Anker’s MagGo accessories
All three of these Anker MagGo products will let you magnetically dock your iPhone on the front, thereby recharging your phone wirelessly. They are all attractive and well built. I have been using each of them for almost a year without any problems whatsoever. But each has unique features.
With the iPhone 12 series, Apple introduced the MagSafe accessory system. There is a ring of magnets embedded on the back of all iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 devices, and it lets you attach various magnetic accessories to the back of the device, such as portable battery packs and even PopSockets. It also makes wireless charging less picky because you do not have to place your phone precisely on a pillow or stand – magnets ensure perfect adjustment. Keywords Jesse Pinkman magnets GIF.
That MagGo 637 is my personal favorite and have been lying on my desk for the longest time. This small ball has three AC outlets on the back, two USB-A ports and two USB-C, one of which is capable of emitting 65 watts of power (enough to recharge a MacBook). It is a nice docking system that lets you get rid of the power rail at your feet and organize cables a little better.
That MagGo 633 is mine second favorite. First, it can be recharged wirelessly thaw devices. Your iPhone is mounted in the rectangular base, but you can recharge your wireless earphone cover (or other device) at the circular base. But here’s the thing: the MagSafe base actually works as a 5,000 mAh portable powerbank. When you are ready to leave home, just push the power bank out and throw it in your pocket – you get a lightweight battery to charge your iPhone without the need for cables. When you are home again, push the power pack down into the dock. It automatically starts recharging so you never have to remember to recharge your powerbank. It can also recharge the battery and your iPhone at the same time. It’s an ingenious system.
Finally there is MagGo 623. This one is also one dual wireless charger. You can magnetically attach your iPhone to the circular base to recharge it. This puck-like top sits on a hinge so you can adjust the angle. Push it all the way out and the circular top of the cylinder can also recharge a pair of wireless earphones. As much as that appearance like a portable battery it is not and it needs to be plugged into an electrical outlet via the USB-C port to get your devices charged up.
