Elago can retrofit MagSafe onto your iPhone or Android

MagSafe is an improved version of wireless charging. It includes the usual inductive charging coils but there are also magnets in the back of the handset so it clings its charger. Currently, only the iPhone 12 has these.

But Elago made a stick-on silicone circle with a ring of magnets embedded in it. Attach the MagSafe Guide Sticker to any handset that supports wireless charging and you can use many MagSafe accessories with it.

That includes iOS devices going back to the iPhone 8. And many Androids support wireless charging. To be sure the sticker is in the right place, Elago’s accessory comes with installation guides for multiple different phones. And the adhesive is reusable.

With this Elago sticker, any of these handsets can use Apple’s MagSafe Charger or the Belkin Boost↑Charge Pro 2-in-1 Wireless Charger. And there are many more.

The Elago MagSafe Guide Sticker is available in four colors so it matches your phone: black, stone, sand pink and jean indigo. It’s available now on the Cult of Mac Store for $10.99.
