Apple's MagSafe Can Also Charge Some Android Devices

When paired with other Qi-enabled devices, MagSafe can deliver 7.5W of power, meaning you can top up any wireless-charging compatible Android devices

Along with the long-awaited iPhone 12 lineup, Apple’s latest product-launch event also featured MagSafe – a wireless charging option for its latest smartphones.

The mat can stick to the back of the handset magnetically and charge it at 15W. This means you get decent charging speed and a perfect fit every time.

When paired with other Qi-enabled devices, MagSafe can deliver 7.5W of power, meaning you can top up any Android devices as long as they have support for wireless charging. However, what we aren’t sure at this point is whether the mat can magnetically connect to Android devices as it does to the iPhone 12.

At this point, some Android devices that can be attached to MagSafe are Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, Samsung Galaxy S20 FE, and Google Pixel 5.

While technically you can use the mat to charge some Android devices, doing so isn’t exactly recommended.

There is no reason to buy Appel's charging mat if you own an Android phone as there are so many other options out there with faster-charging speed. What’s excited is when Apple has made public their way to make sure the mat and the phone are aligned, we might soon see similar methods to achieve the same outcome for Android handsets.

MagSafe is for sales for $39.99.
