Anker has announced a new power bank in the MagGo line – as the manufacturer calls its series of devices adapted for iPhone with MagSafe. The Anker 621 external battery is an alternative to the Anker 622 introduced last year.
It has a capacity of 5,000 mAh and provides 7.5 W wireless charging. At the same time, its thickness is 11.4 mm – against 10.9 mm for the official Apple power bank with a capacity of only 1,460 mAh. Last year’s Anker 622 was slightly thicker than both of them (12.7mm) due to the built-in stand.
There is USB-C for wired charging. Only one device can be charged at a time, with priority given to wired charging. This is a plus for those who do not like wireless charging, but want to clean up their bag: you can attach the power bank to your smartphone with a magnet and charge with a short USB-C to Lightning cable.
The magnet will only work when used with MagSafe compatible cases or iPhone 12/13 without a case. Due to the dimensions (104.9 × 66.5 mm), the manufacturer does not recommend using the device with the iPhone 12 mini and 13 mini: the power bank will stick out from the bottom. But it will not close the camera block, so performance will not suffer.
In the US, Anker 621 was priced at $50 (≈3,050 rubles) – for Anker 622 they ask for $20 more. A 60 cm USB-C to USB-C charging cable is included in the box. Later it will be released in other countries, but the release date is not reported. On the American Amazon , the delivery date of the first batch is October 11th.
