The arrival of MagSafe on the iPhone has given a boost to the innovation of accessories in the ecosystem. And Anker is one of the brands benefiting the most, with a new range of MagGo accessories. One of the most interesting examples is the Anker 622 wireless battery which has a foldable stand. We have been testing it for a few weeks, being a very clever combination to accompany our iPhone.

A battery with MagSafe for the iPhone
If you have an iPhone 12 or iPhone 13 in each of its variants
Whether you have a mini model or a Max with its large battery, you may need the extra range in certain situations. The truth is that with my iPhone 13 Pro Max I forgot to recharge it regularlyWell, the battery lasts me more than two days. And sometimes, wanting to leave the house, I realized that I barely had a charge.
The thickness and weight are similar to the other proposals, something to keep in mind if you value using your iPhone comfortably
This Anker battery has saved me in more than one similar situation. The attach to back of iPhone and you forget them. She’ll do whatever it takes to charge your iPhone while you have it in your pocket. In my experience, the charging is relatively fast, although far from the traditional cable. But enough to gain more than enough battery to finish a day.
It is capable of fully charging an iPhone 12, according to the brand itself. So the Max models stay at around 70% or 75% capacity. In daily use, this battery is rather well held by MagSafe. Of course, you have to be a little careful when inserting and removing it so that it doesn’t come off (which hasn’t happened to me yet).
Perfect support for FaceTime and watching movies
Until now we could talk about any other battery with MagSafe. But that of Anker brings something very interesting and, as we said, cunning. A small tab unfolds
If we fold it in a triangle, it will allow us to place the iPhone in a perfect vertical position to consult it on a desk. notification, calls with speakerphone or AirPods, quickly check emails and social networks. I find it particularly useful to use during FaceTime calls, although it doesn’t need the extra battery charge. Placing it on the battery is very simple and lines up quickly.
If we want, we can also use this support in a horizontal position. You can therefore watch films and series, and also play video games with one of the many MFi wireless controls on the market, such as the PS5’s DualSense.
In total it is a great accessory for those sporadic and unforeseen uses, also for travel and days of intense use. With additional support that adds more value to the whole.
