Appleâs MagSafe Duo charger is now on sale online, after initially having been announced without a release date as part of this yearâs iPhone launch. The $129 folding accessory includes a magnetic wireless charging puck for the iPhone 12 as well as an Apple Watch charger.
Itâs pretty expensive for what you get, especially when you consider that it doesnât include a charging brick. Youâll need to use at least a 20W USB-C adapter, like Appleâs own $19 option, in order to get the faster charging speeds â and even then it wonât be as fast as the regular 15W MagSafe charger. 20W adapters will charge at 11W, while youâll get up to 14W from 27W adapters and above.
That said, I can see the appeal as someone who would rather not carry two…
