Summary

The Anker MagGo 10K packs a punch with its 10,000mAh battery and fast charging capabilities, keeping your iPhone juiced up on the go. But it’s not perfect. While compact, it feels a bit heavier than expected, and the lack of a built-in stand might be a drawback. Most notably, the magnetic connection weakens significantly with cases, making the MagSafe convenience a hit-or-miss depending on your phone setup. If portability and fast charging are your top priorities, and you primarily use your iPhone without a case, the MagGo is a solid option. However, if you need a lighter power bank, a built-in stand, or reliable magnetic hold with cases, you might want to explore other options before plugging into the MagGo.

Design

The Anker MagGo 10K sticks to Anker’s familiar design language, prioritizing function over flamboyance. While the classic black and white options remain, the introduction of purple and pink adds a touch of personality. However, the design might feel uninspired compared to the competition. Its single power button, USB-C and USB-A ports, and 4 LED battery indicators are all common elements, making it blend in rather than stand out. While the clean lines and compact size are practical, they might not be enough to grab attention in a market saturated with similar-looking power banks.

Size & Weight

You’re right, while not feather-light, the MagGo’s portability is still impressive considering its 10,000mAh capacity. It clocks in at 4.2 x 2.7 x 0.72 inches. Weight-wise, it’s comparable to your phone, coming in at 7.4 ounces. While not the absolute lightest option, it easily fits in your pocket or bag without feeling like a brick. For a 10K power bank, it strikes a good balance between size and capacity, making it a practical choice for on-the-go charging needs. I wouldn’t call it ultra-light, but it’s definitely portable enough for most situations.

Performance

The Anker MagGo 10K packs a punch with its 10,000mAh battery capacity, promising to keep your iPhone charged for hours on end. During my tests, it lived up to this claim, offering multiple full charges for my iPhone 13 under moderate usage. Whether you’re streaming music on the go, checking emails, or browsing social media, the MagGo has enough juice to keep you connected throughout the day. For heavier users who indulge in gaming or video editing, it might not provide quite as many charges, but it’ll still offer a significant boost and alleviate battery anxiety.

Its diverse input and output options cater to different charging needs. The USB-C input supports 5V/3A for quick recharges, while the USB-C and USB-A outputs offer flexible options for powering various devices. With outputs ranging from 5V/2.4A to 12V/1.5A, you can charge laptops, tablets, and even Nintendo Switches alongside your phone. The 5W and 7.5W wireless outputs provide convenient MagSafe charging for iPhones, eliminating the need for fiddling with cables.

However, the MagGo’s magnetic performance presents a small caveat. While it clings securely to my bare iPhone 13, adding a standard case significantly weakens the magnetic hold. This might be a dealbreaker for some users who rely on cases for protection. It’s worth noting that thicker or metallic cases are likely to further disrupt the magnetic connection. If you primarily use your iPhone without a case, the MagGo’s magnetic grip is impressive, but for case-loving users, it might require some creative positioning or additional support.

Conclusion

The Anker MagGo 10K stands as a testament to Anker’s reputation for reliability and performance. Its 10,000mAh capacity delivers ample charges for your iPhone, and the diverse input/output options cater to various charging needs. The MagSafe wireless charging adds a layer of convenience, especially for case-free users who appreciate the cable-free experience. However, the magnetic grip weakens significantly with cases, and the overall design might feel uninspired compared to the competition.

So, is the MagGo the ultimate iPhone power bank? It depends on your priorities. If you prioritize portability, wireless charging convenience, and reliable Anker performance, and primarily use your iPhone without a case, the MagGo is a solid choice. However, if you prioritize a stronger magnetic hold for thicker cases or a more unique design, you might want to explore other options.

Ultimately, the decision rests with you. Weigh the pros and cons, consider your individual needs and tech habits, and read through other user reviews to get a well-rounded perspective. Remember, the perfect power bank is the one that seamlessly integrates into your life and keeps your devices powered up, no matter where the day takes you. Happy charging!
