The wireless charger works with all devices that support the Qi standard. This has been the case for all Apple phones since the iPhone 8. The wireless charger has space to power two devices at the same time. For example, you can charge an iPhone 12 and Apple Watch or AirPods charging case at the same time.
The dual MagSafe charger comes with a 1-meter USB-C to Lightning cable and is foldable. You can easily take it with you on a trip because it is very compact when folded. The MagSafe Duo, like the charger in full, was announced simultaneously with the iPhone 12.
To charge devices wirelessly, you still need a power adapter, which is sold separately. When you connect the double MagSafe charger to an adapter with 20 Watt power, your devices are charged wirelessly with a maximum speed of 11 Watt.
Do you want to charge faster wirelessly? Then you need to connect an adapter with 27 Watt (or more) power to the wireless MagSafe charger. Then you can charge with a maximum power of 14 Watts. Wireless charging is always slower than charging with a cable.
The dual MagSafe charger is compatible with all recent Apple devices including the iPhone 12, iPhone 11, iPhone SE, and iPhone XR. You can also power all Apple Watches, AirPods, and AirPods Pro with the double MagSafe charger. The company previously released a single MagSafe charger for 45 euros.
More about MagSafe
MagSafe is a magnetic connection that is included in the new iPhone 12 phones. As soon as you have a suitable accessory nearby, such as the charger discussed above, it will automatically ‘click’ into place. Moreover, thanks to NFC, the iPhone 12 knows what kind of accessories you have paired. For example, your screen turns red briefly when you have connected a red MagSafe protective cover.
