Apple reintroduced its MagSafe technology alongside the iPhone 12 series, though not to be confused with MagSafe MacBook chargers. Since then, all iPhones have had magnetic technology that allows you to attach wireless chargers and other accessories right to the back of your phone. Accessory makers quickly jumped on the MagSafe train, but where does that leave Android owners? Fear not, because there’s a quick and easy solution. Here are some of the best Android MagSafe adapters you can buy.

While our picks aren’t quite as seamless as Apple’s integrated MagSafe magnets on the likes of the iPhone 15 lineup, they should do the trick. If you’re still unsure about the need for MagSafe accessories, we’ll touch on a few of the other perks before we get to the list.

What do MagSafe adapters do?

It’s easy to think of MagSafe as another way to attach accessories to your phone. You can add wallets or grips without the need for adhesive, but that’s only the start. MagSafe also allows you to attach wireless chargers to the back of your phone so you can keep using your phone on the go while it also charges.

Certain MagSafe accessories also come with an NFC chip onboard to communicate with your device. However, this will have more of an impact on iPhones, so don’t expect quite the same level of functionality on Android. You might also want to keep in mind that some of our picks are simple magnetic rings. That means there’s no alignment nub to keep accessories in place. If you attach a heavy wallet or grip, it may rotate with the weight of your phone.

Another benefit for iPhone users is charging wirelessly at 15W speeds. Apple’s latest devices typically charge wirelessly at 7.5W speeds, so the addition of MagSafe doubles your rate. Again, Android devices don’t get the same benefit.

While we mention the first-party accessories for most of these Android MagSafe adapters, you can easily mix and match. That means you could use Moment’s (M)Force case with Anker’s charging pads, or swap for any other combination — including Apple’s own accessories.

With that out of the way, let’s get to the list.

Moment (M)Force case

Pixel 6 Pro Moment case

The Moment (M)Force case is a photographer’s dream MagSafe Adapter. It’s the only one on this list that’s not a magnetic ring but rather a slim case that’s compatible with all of Moment’s lenses. Moment boasts that its case can handle drops from six feet, thanks to the combo of polycarbonate and TPU.

Currently, the (M)Force case is available for newer iPhones, Google Pixel, and Samsung Galaxy S-series devices. However, not all phones are supported. For example, the Galaxy S24 lineup only features one case for the S24 Ultra, but not the cheaper models.

There are plenty of other companies making magnetic cases for Android phones. Most notable are the rugged Rokform cases and stylish Peak Design SlimLink cases. The latter also has a universal magnetic adaptor to unlock its entire ecosystem on any device.

Mophie Snap

The Mophie Snap is a much simpler option when it comes to MagSafe adapters — it’s our favorite magnetic ring option. This is because you can pretty much use it on any device. All you have to do is attach it to the back of your device, and you can enjoy the magnetic features MagSafe has to offer. If your phone supports Qi wireless charging, you can use magnetic wireless batteries, too.

While the Mophie Snap supports MagSafe, it was mainly made to work with Mophie’s Snap and Snap Plus accessories. This includes stands, wireless portable batteries, and more. It’s an easy and affordable way to get this functionality!

PopSockets adapter ring for MagSafe

PopSockets Adapter Ring for MagSafe

PopSockets is a very famous brand by now, and of course, the company has been welcoming MagSafe technology with open arms. These little gadgets can now attach magnetically, even if your phone has no MagSafe support, thanks to the PopSockets adapter ring for MagSafe.

This adapter is thin, either black or white, and very simple. The company didn’t even care to add its branding to it. It’s also pretty affordable, which leads us to think the company just wants to help you use its products. It works with any MagSafe accessories, too, though.

Scosche MagicRing

If you want something a bit more heavy-duty, the Scosche MagicRing is a great MagSafe adapter. It will cost a bit more, but it’s also pretty special. This model comes with neodymium magnets that will provide a very secure magnetic hold on your phone. And while it’s a bit thicker, Scosche mentions that these are still wireless charging-compatible.

Spigen magnetic ring plate

Spigen Magnetic Ring Plate

Spigen is a very recognized brand in the smartphone accessory market, and it couldn’t miss the opportunity to turn your smartphone into a MagSafe-compatible one. This is a very nicely built one, even if priced a little high. It is said to come with strong magnets. It doesn’t work on silicon, suede, leather, patterned, or kickstand cases. Still, that is much less limiting than some of its competitors. You also get a really hand alignment tool for easier installation.

ESR HaloLock

ESR’s HaloLock adapter comes in a two-pack as well, though it’s a little more specific with its compatibility. You can attach it to TPU or polycarbonate cases so long as they have no fingerprint-resistant coating. Unfortunately, that’s a lot easier said than done these days. The HaloLock MagSafe Android adapter also comes with a clever alignment tool to ensure you get the perfect placement.

MOFT magnetic ring

MOFT Magnetic Ring

MOFT’s magnetic ring adapter is your gateway to a series of folding phone stands and wallets. While that may not sound exciting or new, all of MOFT’s designs lay flat on the back of your phone and then fold like origami. These are some really cool accessories. The sticker itself is a magnetic disc with MOFT emblazoned on it. It is simple and affordable.

Like the ESR option above, MOFT has some compatibility requirements, but they are a bit less limiting. You can attach it to PC, TPU, or aluminum.


Android devices don’t currently have the magnets necessary for MagSafe accessories to attach to the back. That said, MagSafe adapters exist, and this gives Android devices MagSafe magnetic capabilities.

MagSafe wireless chargers support Qi wireless charging, just like Android devices. This means you can use MagSafe chargers with Android devices; they just won’t attach magnetically unless you get a third-party MagSafe adapter.

Android won’t support MagSafe, because that is Apple technology. That said, Qi2 wireless charging is getting magnetic capabilities, which means we will get the same functionality when that becomes prevalent.
