Woot today has Apple's MagSafe Charger in new condition for $29.99, down from $39.00. The previous best sale for the accessory was $29.85 at Amazon, so Woot's new discount is nearly a direct match for the all-time low price on 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.



This sale will only last today, and current shipping estimates put an estimated delivery for between July 30 and August 3. Amazon Prime members can use their membership to get free shipping from Woot as well, and the MagSafe Charger comes with a one year Apple limited warranty.

I don't see much point to MagSafe, period. Chargers that charge slowly? Check. A cardholder that falls off, causing you to potentially lose your stuff? Check.

It was just a way for Apple to reuse the name of a technology that was actually cool and useful - the power adapter plugs for MacBooks. Those actually saved my MacBooks from disaster on several occasions.

I have 2 MagSafe duo chargers. They are garbage. Claim to support Qi standards but won’t charge my Qi earbuds. My Belkin charger that cost a third of the price does.

Stay away from trash Apple products.

I have a Qi charger that saved my bacon (my olive?) when lint filled up the lightning plug -- I'm lucky it didn't start a fire in my pocket! -- so I ordered this one from Woot (a little earlier. I do see it's sold out now) so I'll have two. My existing Qi charger does charge the Airpods and at some point I'll get a mag iPhone, more's the fun! 🍸😸

Ordered one this morning. I have a thread in the marketplace asking if anyone has one they wanted to sell me. I guess I can close that...or, since it seems I'm in the minority about liking MagSafe, I can leave it open and see if anyone pops into that thread.

the chargers are probably more intended for overnight/at a desk, when you can keep it plugged in but use it and don't want to worry about aligning just so on a normal wireless charger. I have a third party MagSafe wallet and have never had an issue with it falling off

its convenient when you stick it to your desk and can just toss the phone on it and it auto aligns. I also installed one in my car on a windshield suction mount by driver pillar. hid the cable in the pillar and down to power. It charges slower but its enough to keep it going with GPS on.
I had a medical scare this year where I had to call 911 to save a life and my iPhone had just died so I couldn't make the call while the other person wasn't breathing. SInce then I keep the phone topped off and the way to conveniently do this is to just set things up so I can plop the phone and pick it up when im in and out. If you are a person who is out all day and charges phone while sleeping, you don't need MagSafe. I just know im not going to plug phone in each time I get in car.
