The accessory maker’s new MagSafe Mount turns Apple’s magnetic MagSafe Charger into a weighty charging pad that sits on your desk or bedside table. The device features a stainless steel body that anchors to a desk, allowing you to charge your iPhone 12 series device via Apple’s MagSafe cable without manually removing it.
The MagSafe cable snuggly snaps into the MagSafe Mount and there’s also a soft m”microsuction” gasket inside that prevents the charger from getting scratched. I’ve tested out the MagSafe Mount for a few hours and can confirm that while it works, sometimes the weighty charger still lifts off my desk when I pull the iPhone 12 Pro Max off the charger.
This depends on how it’s placed on the charger, however. For example, if I put the smartphone down on the MagSafe Mount at a slight angle, it still charges the device and pops easier off the magnet.
Of course, you could do the same thing with the standard MagSafe cable or pick up a relatively cheap Qi wireless charger, but it wouldn’t look as cool or be quite as seamless.
Nomad’s MagSafe Mount is available now for $79 USD (about $98 CAD).
