Digital Camera World Verdict

The Belkin magnetic power bank offers an incredibly neat combination to give your phone an extra boost of power while providing a handy stand for watching videos or just generally keeping your phone's display visible. The capacity is not huge, but it is enough for one additional recharge, and it manages to keep the power bank slim, compact, and lightweight. However, other wireless power banks with stands are available for less money.

Apple’s MagSafe was one of the many iPhone gimmicks I rolled my eyes at during the announcement and then ate my words when it turned out to be very useful. Magnetic accessories are now everywhere, from wireless stand chargers by your bed, to clip-on dashboard holders for your car. One of the best uses so far is snapping an additional battery to your phone to extend its meager battery life.

Ugreen 15W 10000mAh MagSafe Wireless Power Bank

The Ugreen 15W 10000mAh MagSafe Wireless Power Bank is the closest you can get to the Belkin, the Ugreen device is a larger power bank, but offers twice as fast wireless charging and twice the capacity.

Anker Nano

The Anker Nano might not pack any wireless charging, but it is a much faster way to charge your phone with its 20W output, plus its tiny enough to fit into pockets and bags with its super useful folding USB-C.
