Review: Satechi’s Latest Wireless Charger Has a Magnet, But Isn’t MagSafe

Satechi’s latest charger, the USB-C Magnetic Wireless Charging Cable, is modeled after Apple’s MagSafe charger and includes a built-in magnet that allows it to attach to Apple’s iPhone 12 devices, but it’s not ‌MagSafe‌ and can charge Apple devices at a maximum of 7.5W rather than 15W.
