I’m planning on buying a few USB charging cards for Christmas for my family that has iPhone 13’s. Better to buy lighting ports, usb-c or mag safe?

also, what’s the difference between 5W and 20W

I got a mophie type coaster couple years ago to charge my iPhone 11. I was just wondering if it would be OK to charge my 13 withIMG_2355.JPG

When I am out and about I carry a portable charger with me. I also use it at home when I am using my iPhone and no outlet is available.

The 20w charger uses a new battery tech called Gan, it creates much more power without adding the size.
And apple supports the max 20w charger, so it will charge your phone 3 time quicker, but will not affect nothing

It’s about your individual use case and subsequent charging needs. Does your phone run out of juice often? If it’s rare then imho no need to carry around a bank. I keep a cable in my car glove box if long drive. (Will eventually get a vent attach MagSafe with wire that plugs into my car USB).
At home, if you don’t need fastest charging possible, for ease of use MagSafe is the king of kings. I Didn’t use MagSafe at first but once I did, that daily finding the wire then stick it in the lightning port seemed an oddly sucky process after all.
