For our phones, charging has become an area of some heated-up competition. First it was how many watts you could push down the cord to speed up charging, and then once the Qi wireless standard became, well, more standard, it was all manner of wireless charging (and how fast it charged). They’ve tended to be very Apple-focused, or generic (ie, everyone else), but the new mophie snap collection wants to correct that.
Obviously, with the advent of MagSafe in iPhone 12, there was a whole new way for the phone to just latch on to accessories using magnets. For those relying on Qi-compatible wireless charging (older iPhones, Android, and just about any other modern cellphone not coming from Cupertino), you don’t have that nice ring to snap onto. Well, until the mophie snap came along. It starts with their “snap adapter” which is basically a metal ring you can adhere on to the back of your phone. Once it’s in place, then your Qi-enabled phone is able to take advantage of the magnetic connection that the whole mophie snap and snap+ collection offers.
And it’s worth noting – while they sell the snap adapter on it’s own (in a pack of two), each and every device in this collection comes with one in the box as well. So, unless you’ve got multiple phones in the house, you don’t need to pay up any extra cash other than what is needed for your charging (or even just holding) needs. Whether you want to mount your phone in your car, charge things up on your desk, or even have a quick battery pack on-the-go that locks into place, you’re covered (you can see the full list – along with pricing – down below).
While I’ve not tested any of these out (not quite to the iPhone 12 era myself), I do have some of mophie’s wireless charging pads in for review (and many, wireless charging is the pure magic I imagined as a kid reading scifi books, no two ways about) and have been quite happy with them. So, realistically, this should be more of the same. You can check out the collection via the links below to specific products, or directly over at zagg.com
