Apple has introduced its MagSafe Duo wireless charger for charging your iPhone and Apple Watch together at the same time. But the problem is that desolate spending Rs 13,900 on the device, Apple doesn’t provide a charging adapter.
To get the desired charging performance you either have to separately buy the 20W USB-C Power Adapter for faster wireless charging up to 11W – 27W or you can also opt for a new 30W power adapter for fast charging. But if you think that using the older 29W USB-C power adapter will get the job done then you are mistaken. The old 29WUSB-C power adapter that was launched in 2018 is not compatible with the Apple MagSafe Duo wireless charger.
As per a report by MacRumors, you can either charge your iPhone or Apple Watch and not both the devices together. Apple in its support page has also confirmed the same and said, “The Apple 29W USB-C Power Adapter isn’t compatible with the MagSafe Duo Charger.”
While the new MagSafe chargers may sound attractive, it may not be a good choice for fast charging, depending on the money you want to spend. For example, if you are buying the new iPhone 12 Mini then you may want to skip Apple’s new MagSafe wireless charger which offers wireless charging speeds of up to 15W. This is because the charging speed on the iPhone 12 mini is limited to just 12W. So, even if you buy Apple’s 20W power adapter to use the MagSafe charger at full capacity of 15W, you will only get up to 12W wireless charging speeds on the iPhone 12 mini.
Meanwhile, if you buy the iPhone 12 and above models, you will have to spend Rs 11,300 for the entire MagSafe experience– Rs 4,500 for the MagSafe charger + Rs 4,900 for a MagSafe compatible case from Apple + Rs 1,900 for the 20W USB-C power adapter.
