Amazon today has dropped the price of Apple's MagSafe Charger to $29.85, down from $39.00. The previous best sale for the accessory was priced at $34.00 over the past few weeks, so Amazon's new deal is an all-time low price for the MagSafe Charger.

The MagSafe Charger magnetically aligns with the magnets in the iPhone 12, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max, and 12 mini. It's also compatible for wireless charging with iPhone models dating back to the iPhone 8. It has an attached USB-C cable, but it doesn't come with a 20W USB-C Power Adapter.



Apple's other MagSafe accessory, the MagSafe Duo Charger, also remains on sale this week. You can get this dual-purpose device for $112.45 on Amazon, down from $129.00. The MagSafe Duo provides charging to both a Qi-compatible iPhone and an Apple Watch.



We've seen the MagSafe Duo Charger go down to as low as $99.00 in previous sales at Best Buy, but that sale hasn't ever returned. Amazon's offer today is the second-best price that we've tracked, and it's a solid discount for those interested in purchasing the accessory soon.

maybe they would like to send some over to the UK if they have a surplus they can sell off at a discount.

UK store is £27ish which is way cheaper than Apples £39 but no stock and unlikely to get more for '1-2 months' apparently.

Does it charge as fast as plugging in lighting?
No, it's a lot slower but it is convenient to use - my wife and mother in law use MagSafe chargers and they're fairly happy with it. Early on there were issues of overheating phones but I think Apple has pretty much solved that now. Using the charger while it's connected to the phone is pretty easy. I personally prefer wired - lot more efficient.

I still fail to see the point of this like ... it does not charge as fast as a fast charger yet it kills your phone battery twice as fast. Also can you pick up your phone without the whole charger being picked up as well? I used to almost exclusively charge my XS Max with "wireless" charging and the battery degraded a lot faster compared to my previous iPhone.

Still overpriced, nothing wrong with charging wirelessly and I've only been charging wirelessly exclusively since the iPhone X came out and I've never dropped below 95% battery health after a year.

My X was about 97% after a year, my 11 Pro Max still had 99% after a year and my 12 pro max is still at 100% since it launched last year.

Am idea would have been to be able to be wall mounted easily for fashion purposes or maybe the deactivation of the magnet when charged to it doesn’t attach to the charger when done or something like that.

or both.

Love reading comments on products :) But frankly I really like the MagSafe on my phone... works great on my nightstand at night where I had habit of knocking it off the Qi charger falling asleep ready my books or whatever :). Trival habit to pickup phone now to slide fingers and push MagSafe off back of phone. Yes, for quick charging, cable is better, but I personally find it works great for "slow" overnight charging (really not that slow with MagSafe IMO). And still easily picking up phone next to bed if I just can't wait to check my email or play my favorite time wasting game du jour. Yeah - it's too pricey, but this is a pretty nice sale - though still should come with the brick...

I have one on my desk at home...It's a small space where a flat charger works well. I use the anker chargers that hold the phone up on my nightstand and at work.

The Apple charger isn't bad but any flat charger would make me happy in that space. On the other hand, it looks nice and doesn't have some stupid colored light.
