Apple's recently announced MagSafe battery pack has begun shipping to customers in some countries and one user confirms that it can double as a wireless charging pad!
Twitter user @stevenrussell picked up his MagSafe battery pack over the weekend and decided to test it out in a number of scenarios including charging the AirPods Pro. He uploaded a photo of the AirPods Pro being charged on the MagSafe battery pack, and made a few other observations:
- The MagSafe battery pack cannot be charge with MagSafe charger.
- The MagSafe battery pack cannot wirelessly charge on a Qi pad.
- The MagSafe battery pack can charge via reverse wireless charging when the iPhone 12 is plugged into the Lightning adapter.
- The MagSafe battery pack cannot charge the Apple Watch.
The MagSafe battery pack is designed specifically for use with the iPhone 12 lineup. It retails for $139 and shipping begins from July 28.
