Anker introduces wireless snap-on power bank and iPhone 12 silicone case

New iPhone 12 accessories from Anker

Anker announced today that they have developed two new accessories for iPhone 12 owners. One is a power bank that docks to the back of the iPhone 12 using a magnetic ring and then charges it wirelessly, and the second is a MagSafe connector-compatible silicone case for the iPhone 12 series.

Anker PowerCore Magnetic 5K power bank

Wireless power banks that charge devices via Qi charging have already been used several times in test reports by Sir Apfelot, but in this case it is a special feature because this additional battery is called "Anker PowerCore Magnetic 5K power bank"uses the magnetic holder of the iPhone 12 and hangs directly on the back of the iPhone 12. Meanwhile, the iPhone is charged wirelessly via Qi-Charging:

This wireless magnetic Snap & Go power bank is specially designed for the iPhone 12 series. 5000mAh capacity is enough for 1,2x charging an iPhone 12 mini, 0,95x charging an iPhone 12, 0,97x charging an iPhone 12 Pro, and 0,75x charging an iPhone 12 Pro Max. This power bank is also available with a smart USB C-Port, which can charge other devices or your power bank yourself with the charging cable included in the delivery.

From my point of view, the practical thing about the power bank is that you can still use the iPhone for phone calls or other things while it is charging, as there is no cable run between the iPhone and the battery. Furthermore, the power bank is firmly connected to the iPhone via a magnet, so that you only have one "pack" and not walk around with two devices.

It is important to note, however, that the iPhone is not charged with Mag-Safe-Qi-Charging, but "only" with normal "Qi-Charging", which probably delivers 5 or 7 watts. Unfortunately, you cannot find an exact value in the product description.

Anker Magnetic Silicone Case

The Anker silicone case is equipped with magnets and is designed to work with the MagSafe accessories without any problems. Charging through the case should therefore work without any loss of performance.

The iPhone 12 case looks very robust and seems to offer a good protective function for the display, edges and camera (Photo: Anker).

Here is a brief description of the anchor:

The magnetic mobile phone case guarantees absolute compatibility with MagSafe accessories and advanced security during every charging process. The charging area is equipped with a magnetic design that clings securely to your iPhone 12 and ensures optimal charging position and charging performance. The smooth, hard-wearing surface made of soft silicone, completely without BPA, effectively resists scratches, bumps and fingerprints.

I already find positive about the case - without a test - that it stands above the display and the camera lenses and thus offers a certain protection against scratches even without a screen protector, if the iPhone is "face" down on a dusty or sandy one Area lays. Many cases close too tightly with the display and then you can quickly get scratches if a grain of sand lies between the lenses or the display and the iPhone slips slightly on the surface.

The silicone case is available for all iPhone 12 models:

    Nice Mag-Safe charger from Anker. Does anyone know whether this also works with a (Pitaka) protective cover, or only directly on the iPhone 12 mini?

      Hello Tom! I don't have the exact case from Pitaka, but I had a pretty thick one from Quadlock. And with that I could always charge my iPhone XS on the wireless chargers from Anker. So I think that will be pretty sure to work.
