Do MagSafe Cases Work with Wireless Charging? A Comprehensive Guide

7 min readMar 18, 2024

Ten years after the release of version 1.0 of Qi wireless charging, we can finally expect Qi2 wireless charging-the new wireless charging standard from the Wireless Power Consortium. It aims to improve the wireless charging experience and bring wider device compatibility to the mobile industry.

Qi2 wireless charging is based on Apple’s MagSafe technology, first introduced in 2020, which allows for a magnetic connection between your device and the charging pad, providing a secure and efficient charging experience.

So, do MagSafe cases work with wireless charging? The simple answer is YES. MagSafe cases can work with wireless chargers of Qi or Qi2 standard. However, it’s important to note that not all cases labeled “MagSafe compatible” work with wireless charging. Some third-party cases may not have the necessary magnets or alignment features to ensure a reliable connection. To ensure compatibility, it’s best to choose cases that are certified by Apple or recommended by reputable sources.

MagEZ vs. MagSafe: Understanding the Technology

MagEZ technology from PITAKA was introduced before MagSafe technology from Apple. They both use magnets to improve mobile phone experiences.

Introduction to MagSafe Technology and Its Benefits

MagSafe is a magnetic system that uses a series of magnets placed strategically inside compatible devices such as the iPhone 12 series and newer iPhone models. These magnets can also be used on chargers, wallets, and phone holders.

MagSafe magnets allow for a precise connection between the device and the magnetic chargers, ensuring a solid attachment and alignment. This means no more fumbling with cables or finding the sweet spot to charge your device. MagSafe technology makes wireless charging more stable, convenient, and faster. The technology provides faster wireless charging, up to 15W, compared to the standard 5W.

There are other MagSafe accessories. For instance, MagSafe wallets can be securely attached to the back of your device, providing a convenient storage option for your cards or IDs.

Overall, MagSafe technology offers a seamless user experience, combining the convenience of wireless charging with the reliability of a magnetic connection.

What You Need To Know About PITAKA MagEZ Technology

The first version of PITAKA MagEZ technology uses magnets arranged in a crescent-shaped placement in phone cases, car mounts, and wireless chargers. Apart from the magnet placement, MagEZ technology works the same as Apple’s MagSafe, but it’s introduced about four years ahead of the latter.

Starting from MagEZ 2.0, we use magnets in an array placement like the MagSafe technology.

MagEZ cases are available for iPhones and Android phones such as the Samsung Galaxy S24 series and Galaxy Z Flip/Fold lineup. These magnetic phone cases are compatible with Qi wireless charging, meaning you can put your device on Qi wireless chargers without removing the MagEZ case.

Moreover, MagEZ cases are generally more wireless charging friendly than other magnetic or MagSafe cases since they’re thinner and lighter, resulting in as little interference as possible. And MagEZ cases stand out from the crowd with their unique grip and design made from woven aramid fiber.

Do MagEZ Cases Work with Wireless Charging?

PITAKA’s MagEZ cases, be they 1.0, 2.0, or 5.0, are fully compatible with Qi and Qi2 wireless charging standards.

Like other magnetic phone cases, MagEZ cases for iPhones or other phones feature magnets properly embedded between aramid fiber layers. Generally speaking, magnets used in magnetic cases are safe for your phone, but that doesn’t mean there’s zero interference. Often, the interference is so small that we can’t barely notice it and can be neglected in most situations.

MagEZ Cases use magnets with proper strength to hold your phone tight to a magnetic car phone holder, even on the bumpiest road. Also, those magnets and other materials are mixed using PITAKA’s self-developed technology in a way to make the overall case as thin as possible, eliminating possible interference and accelerating wireless charging speed.

PITAKA has the thinnest and lightest MagSafe case for iPhone 15 Pro in the world. We also have thin and minimalist magnetic phone cases for iPhone 14 lineup and older models.

The Benefits of using MagEZ cases for Wireless Charging

When finding the perfect case for your device, PITAKA MagEZ cases are a game-changer. These sleek and stylish cases not only offer excellent protection for your phone but also support wireless charging seamlessly.

Seamless Integration

PITAKA has about ten years of experience in producing magnetic phone cases. We know the perfect placement of magnets inside the case and use strong and appropriate magnets to secure a magnetic attachment between the device and wireless charger for worry-free charging.

Faster Charging

PITAKA has some of the thinnest and most minimalist magnetic phone cases in the world, with a thickness of less than 0.8mm for most MagEZ Cases.

Under the same condition, wirelessly charging your device in a thinner magnetic phone case will be faster than when using a thick case.

Sleek Design

Every PITAKA MagEZ Case is designed in a minimalist and sleek style. In addition to the thin MagEZ Case, PITAKA also offers a more protective version that is thicker and heavier. That said, they are still much thinner than third-party protective magnetic phone cases. For instance, the protective MagSafe case for the iPhone 15 Pro series measures 1.65 mm and weighs about 35 grams. It protects your iPhone 15 Pro from daily scratches and drops without adding unnecessary bulk.

On the other hand, woven from premium aramid fiber or Kevlar using advanced and proprietary technology, PITAKA MagEZ Cases are uniquely sleek and sophisticated.

Wide MagSafe Compatibility

MagEZ Case 2.0 and older is specially made for MagSafe. It’s compatible with official Apple MagSafe accessories, including MagSafe Charger, MagSafe Duo Charger, and MagSafe Wallet.

Besides that, the case also works with third-party accessories using the same MagSafe standard.

Pairing MagEZ Cases with Wireless Chargers

Wireless Charger for Cars

The MagEZ Case 2.0 or newer version works with a magnetic wireless charger and phone holder like the MagEZ Car Mount Pro 2.

The magnetic car mount supports Qi wireless charging and can charge Android phones at a speed up to 15W and charge iPhones at about 7W. Built-in magnets provide a strong magnetic force up to 1.2G to guarantee secure attachment and stable wireless charging. It comes with the car vent and Tesla versions, so it works with most car models.

Moreover, this wireless charger for cars has NFC chips that allow you to instantly open your preset App by tapping your phone on the charger. You can set up three NFC shortcuts, such as instantly launching your payment window, Google Maps, or your favorite podcast.

MagEZ Car Mount Pro 2 works with the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, iPhone 14, and iPhone 15 lineups, with or without a MagEZ or MagSafe case. It also works with the Samsung Galaxy S23 and S24 Ultra with a MagSafe Case.

Wireless Charger for Home, Office or On-the-Go

MagEZ Slider is a 3 in 1 wireless charger to use at home, at the office, or on the go. It can simultaneously charge three devices: smartphone, earbuds, and Apple Watch or other device with a Type-C charging port. Constructed in a compact and unique design, this wireless charging dock is sized as a mug, so it won’t take up much space at the table; meanwhile, you can spin it to make pleasant click sounds and unwind your mind during stressful workdays.

If you’re using an iPhone 15, snap it to the wireless charging dock to wirelessly charge it at a 7.5W speed and mount your phone at a comfortable viewing angle in portrait or landscape mode. If you’re using an Android phone, you need a MagSafe case to magnetically attach your device to the charger. When you need to charge on the go, simply slide your phone out with the detachable magnetic wireless charging power bank.

1. Does a MagEZ Case affect charging efficiency?

PITAKA’s MagEZ Case does not affect charging efficiency. It’s made from aramid fiber, an extremely light, durable material that is good for heat dissipation. Plus, the case is made as thin as possible without compromising protection and MagSafe functionality. The closer the phone gets to the wireless charger, the faster the charging speed will be. With a minimalist MagEZ Case between your phone and the charger, the distance between the two devices is minimal, so wireless charging is more efficient than other magnetic cases.

2. Is a MagEZ Case necessary for wireless charging?

It’s not necessary, but a MagEZ case or MagSafe case is necessary to get a better experience with magnetic wireless chargers. The MagEZ Case not only protects your phone but also ensures secure attachment and auto alignment for stable and fast wireless charging.

3. What about iPhone models beyond iPhone 12 and newer?

iPhone 12 or newer models are designed to be MagSafe compatible, which means they can be wirelessly charged by magnetically attaching to MagSafe chargers without using a MagEZ or MagSafe case.

4. Can I use a MagEZ Case with a non-MagSafe wireless charger?

Yes. Our MagEZ Case is wireless charging friendly. It can work with non-MagSafe wireless chargers.
