Since the introduction of MagSafe, MagSafe chargers have been a big hit. An official MagSafe charger can charge an iPhone with 15 watts of power wirelessly, while keeping the device secure. That will continue with the iPhone 15 series too. Official MagSafe chargers continue to have the "Made for MagSafe" badge on them to denote you gain full charging power using one of these. Other chargers that are attached magnetically to an iPhone will charge at a maximum of 7.5 watts of power. Remember that in most cases, you'll also need to purchase a 20w power brick to get the maximum charging power.

For most people, Apple's MagSafe charger is the obvious choice. It's fairly inexpensive compared to other Apple products, and simply just works great. You'll still need to purchase the 20w power brick to get the most power from it through. Another option if you have many devices like an iPhone, Apple Watch 8 and a pair of AirPods Pro 2, is to buy the Belkin MagSafe 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Stand so you can charge them all at once.

If you are looking to save a few dollars and usually charge overnight, take a look at the Moko Armor charger. It's not an official MagSafe charger, so it will only charge with 7.5 watts of power, but if you're simply charging overnight, this doesn't really make a noticeable difference. It has an useful stand, so while it's charging, you can prop up your phone to watch a movie or TV show. It's also half the price of the official MagSafe charger.

Ultimately, if you've bought one of the best iPhones, you deserve to add on one of the best MagSafe accessories to get the most from your time with it.
