    Finally got my Charge Fast battery back. Took a few weeks to get from China but it seems great so far. Will post impressions after a couple of days but initially it does seem to charge surprisingly fast. Only downside at the moment is I did expect it to be able to charge wirelessly but apparently it needs to be plugged in with a USB-C cable to charge. Also the magnetic hold is very secure onto an Apple leather MagSafe caseMagSafe battery pack-img_2901.jpgMagSafe battery pack-img_2900.jpgMagSafe battery pack-img_2899.jpg

    Lol it’s a little thicker than I’d hoped but it’s not bad, and considering you can just pop it on when you need it is nice. Magnets are nice and strong. No issues putting in/taking out of jeans pockets. Hoping there’s an Apple version of this coming out at some point that will be a little thinner and have wireless charging, but This is good for now

    Looks good, but would make the device too thick for me personally. I do like the whole magnetic accessories concept for the iPhone 12 series. It’s going to make a lot more cool gadgets available than can be attached to the device.

    If you have this battery pack then it's great to watch different movies on apps on the Apps Store.

    After a few days the battery pack is decent but it’s not without issues. The good: it has very strong magnetic hold to the phone or any MagSafe case. It also charges pretty quickly and doesn’t get the phone overly hot. Just warm while charging. Even with the battery attached it doesn’t add much more bulk or weight to the phone than a standard battery case. The bad: it doesn’t wirelessly charge, which is really surprising. Also it doesn’t shut off or stop charging when the phone reached 100%, so you have to take it off to stop the charging. I was hoping for some intelligence in the chip to handle that but guess I shouldn’t be too surprised. Until something more official comes out from Apple or one of the more reputable brands this will do just fine.

    If anyone is interested in one of these battery packs and you don’t want to wait for shipment from China, I inadvertently ordered 2 of them and just received the second. It’s still wrapped in the box and I’ll ship it to anyone if you want it. Just need to Venmo me the what I spent, $60 which includes shipping. Let me know if anyone is interested.

    It would be best if you list it in the Marketplace, following the "Marketplace Rules & Guidelines" which can be found here: https://forums.imore.com/marketplace...uidelines.html

    wow looks cool I can see me using it when I need to charge love that it has magnets I have been trying to look for a magnet kick stand that I can just pop on and off without any adhesive.
