  • What鈥檚 the hype around the MagSafe charger? Been finding mixed things online saying MagSafe is faster and some saying the wired is. Wouldn鈥檛 the direct wire charge an iPhone faster? Someone explain this lol

    MagSafe is only good with iPhones 12 and above cuz the coils line up perfectly with the magnets. For any other phone, including older iPhones, it鈥檚 just a wildly inefficient wireless charger that鈥檒l heat your phone up like crazy and take 3-4 hours to fully charge.

    With the compatible iPhones it鈥檚 a much better option than the 5 watt brick (15 vs. 5). Obviously slightly slower than the 18/20 watt bricks but isn鈥檛 very noticeable.

    I got a 20w block and the lightning to usb c cable. 14 pro. Phones charges to 100% in like an hour

    Yeah I mean that鈥檚 the best option for iPhones. MagSafe would probably take 1:20ish if the 20 watt does it in an hour

  • MagSafe is not faster

  • Magsafe goated for macbooks tho

  • I like it on the laptop a lot never used on the phone

    correct wireless charges slower per watt

    some of the power is always lost in transit even though it's been improving

    adds wear on the battery because it generates more heat per watt

    it's popular cause you don't gotta mess with a cable, easier

    So what鈥檚 the best charger to preserve battery health over time?

    a slow basic wired charger, 5W

    fast charging isn鈥檛 as bad as wireless per watt but still adds some wear from the added heat

    i use a slow charger at night cause i鈥檓 sleeping and don鈥檛 need it charged fast

    then i have a fast charger i use before i go somewhere if i need to charge it quick

    letting your battery fall under 20% is also bad for it so fast charging can help

    Don鈥檛 even have a 5W box anymore. All I got is 20w

  • i prefer the wired fast usb c charger over the magsafe magnet for charging but magsafe is useful for mini wallets and other s***

  • i miss lighting cable

    MagSafe pointless for iPhones

    You still have a wire connected to your iPhone regardless, might as well have it plugged through the charging port for actual faster charging since 鈥渨ireless鈥 is slow af
