Beginning February 2021 HomeKit Australia begins shipping its new MagSafe car charger.
Totally redesigned with a new magnet system, we believe this is Australia's best quality Mag car charger for iPhone 12. All of our new Mag chargers are manufactured for us in the same factory as our premium GaN chargers. If you have a HomeKit Australia GaN charger you will understand the premium quality and performance.
In the car charger, the MagSafe magnet array is made up of thin, low-powered magnets, requiring any user to have an exact match.
On the launch of the new MagSafe car charger we will show testing in the lab where an iPhone 12 is removed from the magnetic car charger. If you are considering a MagSafe car charger from another supplier, you may want to wait to view this video.
Remember that MagSafe products including a MagSafe charger does not include the actual AC charging unit, so you will need to purchase this separately. HomeKit Australia supplies its own in-car charger with dual outlets - USB-C and USB.
To receive the the maximum charge, the AC charger must be a minimum 20w and support the Power Delivery (PD) 3.0 standard at 9V 2.22A, the specifications you require to fully utilise Apple's MagSafe 15w charging technology. Many chargers will not deliver according to the PD 3.0 standard and you will not get a full 15w charge, no matter whose MagSafe charger you buy. Also remember, an iPhone 12 Mini will only charge at 12w with MagSafe.
Charging by cable is much faster, just possibly not as convenient. If you need maximum power charge, as fast as possible, use a Lightning cable and AC or fast car charger.
Only original Apple MagSafe chargers will produce a full 15w charge. Other brands can only produce up to a maximum 9.5w.
