Mophie 3-in-1 Charger with MagSafe
As we return to the road, portable charging is again a thing to worry about. Mophie certainly is, and with their worry, they invented a wonderfully compact charging pad that folds into a light and easy-to-carry package. The Mophie 3-in-1 Charger with MagSafe will likely be the primary mobile device charger, save the one you pack for your iPad or Laptop.

Mophie also sells a less expansive version of the charger without the built-in Apple Watch features. Owners will need to provide their watch’s charger. The charger is MagSafe compatible and worksiMophies snap+ system that helps Android phones find their MagSafeness Unlike the Apple-only version; this travel charger is available on Amazon.
What we like
Mophie’s $149.95 3-in-1 Charger with MagSafe unfolds from its 6 3/4in x 4in x 2in grey flannel package, extending out to reveal a MagSafe phone charger, an Apple Watch charger and a Qi charger for AirPods or other Qi-compatible devices. Unfolded, the pad measures 3.15in x 12.3in. The flannel case also includes a 30W power supply and a USB-C charging cable to power the pad—everything you need for charging, well, almost everything.
I don’t think anyone needs an explanation for using the charging pad. Just put the devices in the right places, and they will charge. In fact, if you put the iPhone on the Qi pad, it will charge, though not as fast as under MagSafe. When charging completes, and it’s time to move on, simply fold the charging pad, roll up the cable and replace the power supply into their respective receptacles. It’s that simple.
The outer case is very business-looking. The pad does not employ top-of-the-line plastics, but that choice keeps it light. Only use over extended trips will belie its ruggedness.
The 3-in-1 Charger with MagSafe is currently exclusive to Apple and Mophie (not available on Amazon).
What could be improved
I would like to see the Mophie 3-in-1 Charger with MagSafe include a USB-C output port for an iPad, but that might call for a bigger power supply. Perhaps Mophie can consider a 3-in-1 Charger with MagSafe + version that includes a USB-C output port, a larger power supply and international power adapters.
Mophie 3-in-1 Charger with MagSafe: The Bottom line
I am looking forward to taking my Mophie 3-in-1 Charger with MagSafe on the road. The tight packaging will make it easy to include on long trips and day trips. Pick up one relatively small package, and I’ll know I have my portable’s charging needs covered. I will, however, need to remember my iPad charger, but I need a lot of other accessories for my iPad Pro, and those all fit in my tomtoc case; also always poised and ready to travel.
