There’s no better way to charge your new iPhone 15 than with MagSafe. Sure, it might not be the fastest charging method, but it’s certainly the simplest and most convenient. And, let’s face it, plugging in a cable is nowhere near as satisfying as that snap you hear when slapping a MagSafe accessory onto the back of your iPhone.

If you’ll be experiencing MagSafe for the first time with iPhone 15, it’s time to stock up on cables, charging stations and battery packs. Here are the best available right now.

Picking the best MagSafe accessories for iPhone 15

When shopping for a MagSafe charger, there are a couple of questions you need to ask yourself: Where will you be charging your iPhone 15, and how will you be using it?

If you want to be able to use your device during top-ups, you’ll want a simple MagSafe cable you can move around. If your iPhone will be sitting on a table, taking advantage of iOS 17’s new StandBy mode, you’ll want a MagSafe charging station that safely elevates your device so you can see it. If you need juice on the go, grab a MagSafe battery pack.

Whatever the case may be, you’ll find the best options below. But before you buy, be warned: Many MagSafe chargers don’t ship with a USB-C power adapter to plug them into. So, unless you already own one, you’ll need to pick up one of those as well. (We noted whether a power adapter comes in the box beneath each recommended product.)

You also will need to remember that not all iPhone cases are MagSafe-compatible. If yours doesn’t come with built-in magnets, and/or it’s not super-thin, the case likely will prevent MagSafe accessories from attaching properly. (Check our roundup of the best cases for iPhone 15 if you need a new one.)

Best overall MagSafe cable

Apple’s official MagSafe charger is arguably still the best option overall. You know what you’re getting from it, and that’s a fully compatible and ultra-reliable charger that — so long as you’re not too rough with it — won’t let you down.

You’ll enjoy perfect alignment on iPhone 15 and all other compatible models, plus magnets that are plenty strong enough. And did you know that its wireless charging capabilities aren’t exclusive to iPhone? You can use it with any device that supports the Qi standard.

If you’re a little heavy-handed and tend to destroy nylon cables, go for Belkin’s braided MagSafe Wireless Charger Pad. It delivers the same 15W of power as Apple’s charger and combines it with a longer, 6.6-foot cable and a more durable design.

What’s more, Belkin thoughtfully added a small kickstand to the back of the charging pad, so you can enjoy hands-free videos and FaceTime calls during top-ups. It comes in black, blue or white, and goes for just $29.99, making it an even better deal than Apple’s.

For charging iPhone 15 on the go, Anker’s Magnetic Portable Charger is the best option. It packs 5,000mAh of power — enough to charge iPhone 15 Pro Max to 100% with juice left over — into a compact form factor that won’t weigh you down.

The Magnetic Portable Charger snaps onto the back of your iPhone, so no cables are necessary. And its PU leather coating feels great in the hand. It’s also nicely priced at less than $40, and you can get 10% off if you apply the coupon that’s available on Amazon right now.

Need an ultra-small MagSafe charger for traveling? Check out this foldable three-in-one option for less than $40. It’s clearly inspired by Apple’s MagSafe Duo Charger, which has been discontinued (likely due to its Lightning port), but it charges iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods at the same time.

What’s more, its clever design means that if you’re charging an iPhone by itself, or an iPhone and an Apple Watch, you can turn the charger into a stand that holds your handset upright. When you’re not using it at all, it folds away into a tiny little package that you can take with you anywhere.

Power adapter included? Yes.
Buy from: Amazon

For a limited time, you can get a similar travel charger from Cult of Mac Deals for just $32.99. However, note that it does not come with a power adapter.
