Belkin Fitness Mount MagSafe Compatible

Pros
  • Simple design
  • Secure connection
  • Can be wrapped around a bar or placed flat on a wall
Cons
  • Some reviewers wish the magnet were strong

We love the simple design on this MagSafe Fitness Mount from Belkin. The mount is universal in the way it can wrap around most metal bars, and if you want to place your phone on a metal cabinet or power rack, the Fitness Mount will secure itself by lying flat (the backside of the mount is magnetized too). For $35, this is a no-brainer addition for your home gym setup.

No more instances of your phone collapsing after hitting a bump on the road.

Joby GripTight GorillaPod for MagSafe

Pros
  • Unique arms allow for placement on uneven surfaces
  • Magnet has strong connection
  • Great for content creation
Cons
  • Some reviewers noted the head of the mount doesn’t tilt up or down for better shooting angles

Joby’s GorillaPod mount is a popular product among content creators and photographers. The unique design of the mount allows the user to bend and shape the arms in whatever way they need to get the perfect shot. You can also shape and wrap the arms of the tripod to hold comfortably in your hands—a much better improvement over the long stiff arms on a selfie stick. Go with the GripTight GorillaPod with MagSafe and start taking all that adventure content you’ve been wanting to capture.

Moment Mobile Filmmaker Cage for MagSafe

Pros
  • Strong durable aluminum build
  • Magnet in the middle keeps phone positioned perfectly
  • Frame allows for a stabilized shot
Cons
  • Accessories to go onto the frame sold separately

Made out of a strong, yet lightweight, aluminum frame, this filmmaker cage from Moment is perfect for capturing content too. All you have to do is pop your phone into the MagSafe magnet inside the frame and you have a much easier way to take videos and photos. You only get the frame with this purchase, but the image above showcases how you can add a mic, a lens, a light bar (and more) for a more customized setup.

Pros
  • Under $50
  • Available for iPhone 12, 13, and 14
  • Designed to maximize the strength of magnets in your iPhone
Cons
  • Clear case will yellow over time eventually

Available for the iPhone 12, 13, and 14, the Clear Case with MagSafe is the de-facto choice for protecting your device and maintaining the clearest magnetic connection between any MagSafe accessory you buy. We love how the clear case holds off from yellowing much longer than other cheaper clear cases do, and the fact it shows off the cool colors that are now available in the iPhone 14 lineup is a nice touch too.

Pros
  • Holds your cards neatly
  • Made of fine leather
  • Available in different colors
  • Find My iPhone built-in

Apple took its original Leather Wallet with MagSafe and applied Find My iPhone to the latest version for tracking. It’s sleek, slim, and functional. Just be prepared to cut down your wallet size if you aren’t used to carrying only a few cards at a time.

Pros
  • Minimalist design that’s slim
  • Powers your phone faster than most MagSafe battery packs
  • Lightweight and easy to travel with
Cons
  • White gets dirty easy
  • Expensive

The original MagSafe Battery Pack is also the most stylish. You can carry this sucker wherever you go and pop it on when your phone needs a quick boost. The pros of opting for this pack largely stem from the seamless pairing of the Clear Case with MagSafe and the trusted reliability of the battery’s performance. The downside is the case shows dirt and dings pretty easily, so your $100 investment might get a little worn faster than you might like.

Otterbox Wireless Power Bank for MagSafe

Pros
  • Cheaper than the Apple battery pack
  • More rugged design
  • Comes with cord that allows for dual charging
Cons
  • Charge might not be as strong and fast as the Apple battery pack

There are several MagSafe charging banks outside of the MagSafe Battery Pack Apple makes, and if you’re looking for something a little more rugged (and cheaper) we recommend this one from Otterbox. The power bank is tough in design, and it packs hours of juice and a fast charge. What’s cool is the power bank comes with a USB-C lightning lable that allows you to charge two devices at the same time. So you can turn this pack on and power your phone and connect either your AirPods or another friend’s phone for dual charging.

Peak Design Universal Bar Mount

Pros
  • Stronger, more secure connection than most bike mounts
  • Strap can go on virtually any kind of bar for mounting
  • Can remove device one-handed with ease
Cons
  • Need to have the compatible Peak Design case

Bike phone mounts naturally reject magnetized attachment due to the fact you are bumping and shifting around while riding. Peak Design’s bike phone mounts include a clip-in feature alongside a strong magnetized attachment for a super secure hold. When taking your iPhone off the mount, you can press on either one or both of the tabs on the side of the mount and your phone will detach with ease. This is a gadget well worth adding if you need a good bike phone mount—just be aware you need to buy the accompanying phone case to pair with it.

Frequently Asked Questions

commerce breaker

What Is MagSafe?

MagSafe is a technology from Apple that involves the placement of magnets around the iPhone 12/13/14’s internal charging coil. MagSafe was originally used in MacBooks as a safety feature, but when applied to iPhone these magnets help properly align the device for fast wireless charge, and help create a mounting capability for a wide array of accessories to go onto the back of your iPhone.

Is MagSafe Better Than Lightning Charging?

When it comes to which charges faster—USB-C lightning vs. MagSafe—the two run about the same. With a lightning lable, you’re tied to needing an outlet or some sort of portable power bank to connect your iPhone to. With MagSafe, you can pop on a MagSafe charging pack and get a fast charge time without being tied down. The only caveat about MagSafe charging is you should pay attention when buying actual wireless chargers themselves, as they sometimes just have magnets inside and not the exact compatible magnetic makeup that MagSafe pairs best with—which can slow charge times significantly.

Will MagSafe Work with My Phone Case?

Applying a phone case to your iPhone can decrease the strength of your MagSafe due to the fact there’s now a barrier between the accessory you’re applying your magnets to. The easiest solution to solve this problem is to buy a MagSafe compatible case, which is just a modified phone case that’s made to keep the MagSafe connection strong when applied to any MagSafe accessory.
