The Apple accessories ecosystem is growing. Apple officially announced the MagSafe Duo. This latest accessory is presented to make it easier for iPhone and Apple Watch users to recharge the battery.
Apple MagSafe Duo specifications
Apple MagSafe Duo is a magnetic charger to recharge the iPhone and Apple Watch batteries together wirelessly. The design of the Apple MagSafe Duo is very compact with a foldable design. So, it can be easily carried anywhere.
According to Apple, in addition to the iPhone and Apple Watch, these accessories can also be used for AirPods and other devices that support the Qi Wireless standard wireless rechargeable battery feature.
Apple MagSafe Duo offers a battery rechargeable speed with an output of 14W. This figure can be achieved if you use a power adapter with a minimum output of 27W. If you use a 20W USB-C power adapter, the rechargeable speed of the battery is only 11W. The recharge speed is clearly lower than the standard Apple MagSafe charger which is at 15W.
One thing that is quite unfortunate is that the Apple MagSafe Duo is sold only with a 1 meter long Lightning to USB-C cable. This means, users have to spend extra to buy a USB-C power adapter. Even though the recharging speed of the battery is slower, at least with these accessories Apple already has a solution for iPhone and Apple Watch users so they don’t have to bother carrying two chargers while traveling.
Apple MagSafe Duo Price
Like other original Apple accessories, the selling price is not cheap. The price of the Apple MagSafe Duo is US $129.
