I've been looking for a MagSafe compatible stand that I could use with my iPhone 13 mini as both a stand and a charger. But, I would like the ability to turn off the charging portion without having to unplug a cable. Essentially having then just be a magnetized stand while not charging. The Belkin MagSafe 2-in-1 is a perfect solution but has no on/off button for the charging. I would have to unplug the cable constantly.

Does anything like that exist?

I got a USB-C power switch with a Raspberry Pi kit a couple of years ago, maybe that would suit your purposes? Quick Interwebz search shows several options.

It sure does. Plug this switch into your surge suppressor and the Belkin plug into the switch. Now, when your iPhone is fully charged, you can flip the switch to cut power to the charging unit.

As someone mentioned, I would recommend a smart plug and have it connect to your Home app and set it that way.

My Belkin 3-in-1 wireless charger is plugged in to a Wemo Smart outlet. "Hey, Siri, Turn on the MagSafe plug."
