My 11 Pro has some minor screen damage and it's been doing my head in for a while. The battery isn't that great next to my work 13 I find the screen quite poor now. Insurance claim approved on the 11 and I have to send it in. So I’ve restored onto my work iPhone 13 and I might just keep using it and sell whatever I get sent back.

Has anyone got the Magsafe battery pack? £100 seems a bit pricey, but sometimes I need the absolute most battery life on my phone. Or are there other battery packs that last longer and fast-charge an iPhone 13 Pro Max?

fast-charge
For best efficiency, you don't want to fast charge as fast charging generates heat and that's wasted power. If you're looking to preserve life of a battery pack as well as charge the battery then it's probably better to top the charge off slowly through the lightning port so no energy is wasted as heat.

Even under heavy use, I get nearly two days battery life out of a 13 Pro Max though.

It's £83 on Amazon right now, so could be worth grabbing it and seeing how it goes. Their returns policy is quite generous too if it doesn't work out.


Alternatively Anker do one that is half the price (also has a 15% voucher you can currently apply)

Ordered my son a 13 mini as his older iphone is just flat all the time.

Whats the benefit of the magsafe thing? Just that it sticks to the phone? £80 for a tiny battery, because Apple...... :confused:......... Is it not better to get a £20 10000mAH Anker slim he can put in his backpack, I dont get it. :cry:

'cos Apple.


Yea of course if you're not set on some kinda of magnetic pack that can attach via MagSafe, the choices open up vastly to all the various battery packs. Anker are a good brand.

A few weeks using the 13 exclusively, the only thing I miss is the 2x camera lens. Apart from that it's working perfectly and I've just turned off the work SIM. I sold my 11 Pro to Music Magpie and I'll use the money I would spend on the 14 towards the new watch. Unless the 14 Pro comes with something groundbreaking that is.

Anyone got the MagSafe Wallet? Seen that the new version comes with Find My.

Worth the outlay?
I have it and personally I don’t think so - certainly not at RRP anyway.
I bought mine a few months back when there was a bit of a loophole involving Argos and JL. Argos reduced the 1st gen to clearance for £23 IIRC but had it listed as the 2nd gen. Then a bunch of people (including myself) got JL to price match the actual 2nd gen one.

Long story short, that £23 was about all I was willing to pay. It also helped that I was actually on the lookout for a new wallet that week anyway.

It’s worth noting that the Find My feature only notes where the wallet detached from your phone. So it’s no good if you’re trying to find it like AirPods or AirTag etc.
So for that reason it may be worthwhile looking at a third party option. There are a couple of very reputable ones on Amazon, Spigen I think is one of them.
