Say what you want about Apple’s propensity for putting out questionable proprietary standards, the company clearly has a winner on its hands with MagSafe.

To help you separate the wheat from the chaff, we’ve picked out the best MagSafe accessories you can buy in a variety of categories. Whether you’re looking for a simple wireless charger or a niche gaming device, we’ve got you covered. Not sold on MagSafe yet? Here’s why you should be.
Editor’s note: We’ll be updating this list as more MagSafe accessories hit the market.
Best MagSafe wireless charger: Anker 637 Magnetic Charging Station
- Lots of ports
- 65W USB-C charger
- Small and inconspicuous
- Slow 7.5W wireless charging speed
- No USB PD PPS
- Somewhat pricey
The most obvious (and arguably useful) MagSafe accessory you can buy is a magnetic charger, and the Anker 637 gets our top pick. It not only serves as a capable MagSafe charger for your iPhone or Android phone, but it also features two USB-A ports, two USB-C ports, and three AC outlets on the back. The ingenious design hides all the mess behind the softball-sized device, so you can plop it down on your desk without a mess of cables everywhere. As an added bonus, there’s a built-in surge protector to prevent any electrical damage to your devices.

If you can afford to spend a bit more, this Belkin MagSafe charger really does it all. It has three chargers in total: one for your phone, one for your Apple Watch, and one for your AirPods. Unlike most options, it supports up to 15W of juice, although it may struggle to hold heavy cases.
Best MagSafe portable battery: Anker 622 MagGo battery
- 5,000mAh battery
- Thin and light
- Stand won’t hold larger phones
- Uncomfortable to hold while charging
Need a little extra juice on the go? Then this is the MagSafe accessory for you. It offers the same ease-of-use as MagSafe wireless chargers, but without the plug. Our favorite is the Anker 622, which packs a hefty 5,000mAh battery inside a slim magnetic package. It also features a foldable kickstand to prop up your phone while it’s charging. If you want a more sturdy stand, the Anker 633 ditches the foldable kickstand in favor of a fixed stand that’s capable of charging your wireless headphones at the same time as your phone/battery pack.

Like beer? This MagSafe accessory is very similar to the finger-loop option above, but with the addition of a kickstand and bottle opener. That said, there’s nothing to stop the ring from spinning on your phone, so you won’t get quite as much grip as other options.
Best MagSafe car mount: Belkin MagSafe Car Mount
- Powerful magnet
- Quick and easy vent attachment
- Vertical and horizontal alignment
- Requires sturdy vents
Belkin is the brand to trust for car mounts, and the company’s MagSafe vent mount is yet another winner. It slips into your air conditioning vent, supporting both a vertical and horizontal phone position. It does not include a charger, but there is a handy slot to store a charging cable behind your phone. It is, however, a bit pricey.

Want to save some desk space? This handy wall mount allows you to snap your phone onto any vertical surface. While the magnet is strong enough for even the heaviest of phones, you will need to buy an OhSnap grip, as well. That said, it also means that you don’t need an iPhone to use it.
If you want a MagSafe wall mount that still looks good when your phone isn’t attached, this option from Peak Design is the best there is. It works with any MagSafe device, or phones equipped with a SlimLink-compatible case or adaptor.
Best MagSafe wallet: Sinjimoru wallet grip
- Strong magnets
- Slim design
- Accessory for Android devices

- Can be difficult to remove cards
Wallet cases are notoriously bulky, but MagSafe wallets offer the same convenience in a much slimmer profile. It doesn’t get much more minimal than this option from Sinjimoru, which also serves as a grip and kickstand. It’s also compatible with any case or device with the help of the company’s M Plate magnet sticker.

This first-party wallet is a bit pricier than most alternatives, but it’s still among the best MagSafe accessories you can buy. It only holds two or three cards, but it’s easily one of the most attractive wallets on the market, with an exquisite leather finish.
Best MagSafe gaming accessory: Otterbox Xbox gaming clip

Best MagSafe tripod: STM MagPod
- Strong magnet and sturdy build
- Wide degree of adjustment
- Folds down for storage
- Somewhat short
- Too thick to pocket
STM makes a variety of MagSafe accessories, and the company’s adorable “MagPod” tripod is one of our favorites. It’s perfect as either a simple desk stand for your phone, a mobile tripod, or even a phone holder for selfies and video. Its thick legs are very sturdy, but it does make it a bit bulky, even when folded. Don’t expect to slip it in your pocket when not in use.

Best MagSafe camera accessories: Moment accessories
- Variety of MagSafe camera accessories
- Strong, proprietary magnets
- Cases only available for select phones
When it comes to making the most out of your smartphone camera, Moment is the brand to trust. It offers a ton of excellent accessories designed to work within Apple’s MagSafe ecosystem. These include tripod mounts, cold shoe mounts, and a multi-thread mount for use with magic arms, rig mounts, and other holding mechanisms. Buying into Moment’s ecosystem of goodies can be expensive, but the proprietary (M)Force magnets are even stronger than standard MagSafe accessories, so you can rest assured your phone won’t fall.
If you don’t have an iPhone, the company also sells MagSafe cases for the Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy lineups. These cases also unlock Moment’s excellent smartphone camera lens ecosystem, which is yet another worthwhile upgrade for mobile photographers.
