Momax powerbank stands

Momax IP108, USB-C, MagSafe power bank

Use code PHONEARENA10. With 5,000 mAh capacity, charge your iPhone via the MagSafe connector. USB Type-C port on the side can output power to another device. With integrated kickstand.

Momax IP105, Lightning, MagSafe power bank

Use code PHONEARENA10. This 5,000 mAh bank can be charged with your iPhone’s cable thanks to its Lightning port. Features MagSafe magnet array and kickstand.

These magnetic powerbanks will stick to the back of your iPhone 14, iPhone 13, iPhone 12 thanks to their array of strong magnets, and provide optimal charging due to the perfect alignment allowed by MagSafe. They also have a flap that unfolds to transform them into a kickstand — charge while enjoying your favorite YouTube playlists.

They are transparent, giving us a glimpse at what makes a powerbank tick — turns out it’s more complicated than one would think!

Both powerbanks feel compact and light, yet they pack 5,000 mAh cells inside. All of those chips and circuits you see through the transparent case provide protection against overheating, overcharge, short-circuits.

The difference between the two products here is that one can be charged by a Lightning cable — so you can just use the cable you got with your iPhone — and the other has a USB C port instead. The latter can output charge through that USB C port, acting like a regular powerbank if you don’t want to use the wireless function. So, it’s much more universal.

You get excellent design without missing out on any of the basic features. To top it off, these are loaded with a ton of features. If you are looking for a wireless power bank for your iPhone, read along to know which one is the right choice.

Q.Mag Power 8 magnetic wireless 5,000mAh power bank with stand

The Q.Mag Power 8 is a practical product with a jaw-dropping design. The magnets around the wireless charging coil enable a very MagSafe-like charging experience, while the kickstand at the back can help you enjoy media or just use it as a stand on your table. And, if you’re looking to quickly power your device, it also outputs power through a cable. over, it’s the design of the product that will turn a lot of heads and differentiate it from the rest.

Capacity 5,000mAh
Rated Capacity 2800mAh
USB-C Power Input 5V=3A, 9V=2A
Wireless Power Output 5W, 7.5W, 10W, 15W
Wired Power Output 5V=2.4A, 9V=2.22A, 12V=1.5A (PD 3.0)
Dimensions 102x66x17mm
Weight 162g (±10g)

Design

Transparent or translucent designs exposing the internals of a device are not a new phenomenon. Rather they were a thing of the past, and we’ve also seen Apple launching translucent products dating way back to the 90s or even before that. However, exhibiting the PCB and other components are slowly gaining traction, and the Momax Q.Mag Power 8 is an example of this design.

Honestly, I’m in love with its design and can’t deny that it’s nothing less than eye candy (without negative connotations of the word, of course). But if you tend to carry the power bank in your with keys or just travel a lot with it, the front panel might be filled with scratches. However, this is an assumption as I haven’t used the product for long enough to discover scratches myself.

It features a transparent panel that showcases the internals and feels like polycarbonate or fiber to the touch; however, it is a fingerprint magnet. While we’re on magnets, the power bank design also highlights 16 magnets in a circle. The copper charging coil is within the circle of the magnets, and there are 2 magnets just below it, forming the tail.

Apart from this, the PCB (printed circuit board) is black and looks beautiful. It highlights all the transistors, resistors, etc., which have been soldered neatly. Also, there’s a Momax branding at the bottom left. I’ve shown it to several people, and all of them loved the design, so it’s safe to say it’s not a polarizing design.

The sides have a space grey colorway with a polished matte finish that has a grainy reflection to light. However, it has several product details printed on the sides, spoiling the clean and minimal look. Also, my unit has minor scuffs, and I haven’t even used it that long. At the bottom is the power button with LED indicators, and a USB-C port doubles as power input and output to the right.

At the back is the kickstand made out of imitation leather. While it has a good in-hand feel, I’m skeptical about its durability. The back, even with the kickstand open, has the same leather finish, which keeps the in-hand feel consistent and doesn’t spoil the design.

Utility

The Momax Q.Mag Power 8 has a battery capacity of 5,000mAh. I will discuss my experience with the product and its charging speeds here. Please refer to the table above if you want to know about the power input or output through a wired or wireless connection.

To begin with, I tested the product with an iPhone 13 Pro Max with a MagSafe case. While it does charge with other third-party cases, the magnetic connection isn’t strong and doesn’t give me the confidence to use it. With that said, here are the charging test results:

  • 11:51 AM: 5%
  • 12:27 PM: 26%
  • 12:41 PM: 32%
  • 1:45 PM: 65%

I started charging the iPhone 13 Pro Max at 5%. It took almost an hour to charge 30% and almost 2 hours to charge 65%. Looking at these numbers, we can conclude that the Momax Q.Mag Power 8 will take 2 mins on average to charge 1% of your iPhone’s battery.

Also, even though the company claims the battery capacity to be 5,000mAh, it mostly isn’t the true battery capacity of the power bank. In the real world, you can expect the power bank to charge a regular iPhone from 0 to 75-85 percent on a full charge. And it can charge a Plus/Pro Max iPhone from 0 to 60-70 percent on a full charge.

Should you buy it?

  • Transparent design with a beautiful PCB
  • Strong magnetic snap (without a case or with a MagSafe case)
  • Appealing space grey finish on the side
  • PD charging speeds
  • Kickstand
  • Build quality could be better
  • Priced slightly on the higher side
  • Doesn’t snap and fit well with any third-party case. Needs to be used naked or with a MagSafe case

The Momax Q.Mag Power 8 is priced at 39.99. It is priced correctly for what for the utility it offers. However, the USP is not its battery capacity or charging speed or the fact that it also comes with a kickstand, rather, it’s the product’s design that speaks volumes.

Cons

Power banks are usually compatible with various devices, such as charging various phones and tablets. Some power banks can charge laptops, too, but those are ones with much more powerful charging power. There are some power banks that are for specific devices only and are not the best to use with others.

In this review, we’re looking at this MOMAX 5,000mAh power bank with a narrow usage regarding what devices you can use within it. This MOMAX power bank has only one output charging method and a single Lightning input port to recharge it with.

Power Capacity:

This MOMAX power bank has a 5,000mAh power capacity, and that’s definitely on the very low side, but it fits its wireless charging only output. A 5,000mAh capacity will get you one full recharge for phones that you charge with this power bank, and of course, it matters most what phone you’re going to be charging with the power bank.

This power bank is made to charge the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 models; this power bank uses MagSafe magnetic wireless charging. If we’re considering the two top-tier models, such as the iPhone 12 Pro Max with its 3,687mAh battery and the iPhone 13 Pro Max has a 4,352mAh battery. You’re likely going to get near a full charge with this MOMAX power bank; however, getting an actual full charge is unlikely because a 5,000mAh power capacity is not a lot compared to modern phones, especially when factoring in batteries that most moderns phones have.

Output Charging:

As we mentioned before, this is a wireless charging-only power bank. There are no output ports, and you can only charge wireless charging compatible phones with it, which is most phones on the market. However, the most crucial factor is using an iPhone 12 or an iPhone 13 with this MOMAX power bank because both of those iPhone models are MagSafe compatible. MagSafe enables the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 13 to attach magnetically to the charger; most other phones cannot do that. Therefore this MOMAX power bank isn’t really usable for other phones.

You can still place the power bank flat down and place an Android phone on top of the power bank to wirelessly charge. The same is true for any wireless charging iPhone, such as the iPhone X, 8, and 11, but these phones will not magnetically attach to the power bank.

The wireless charging speed available is 5W, 7.5W, and 10W. 7.5W is mainly meant for iPhones, and 10W is intended for Samsung phones. We did charge a Galaxy S20 from this power bank, but it was only able to standard charge at 5W; otherwise, with 10W wireless charging, the screen would read “fast wireless charging”. So we definitely think that the charging rate maxes out at 7.5W and not 10W.

Input Charging:

Another indication that this power bank is meant for charging iPhones is that it only has a Lightning input port to recharge from. The recharge rate is 5V/2.4A (12W), so you’re alright with using a regular USB-A wall charger to recharge the power bank. Not many power banks use a Lightning input port, but this being mainly an iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 power bank, it makes sense.

Size and Weight:

This power bank has a mini size, with it having a length of 4 inches, a width of 2.4 inches, and a thickness of 0.6 inches. The weight of the power bank is 6 ounces. You’re going to easily hold the power bank in your hand while charging your iPhone 12 or an iPhone 13 as it’s magnetically attached to the power bank. You can also place it into your with no problems.

You can likely tell by now that this MOMAX power bank has an incredible design with a clear glass showing the power bank’s inner circuitry, including the charging coils and the magnets that can keep an iPhone 12 or an iPhone 13 attached to the power bank. Very few power banks have this type of transparent design, with this TEGIC power bank being the only other one we’ve reviewed.

You have to place your phone on the charging pad and press the power button to activate wireless charging. It will be easy to center an iPhone 12 and the iPhone 13 as they can magnetically align themselves to the center of the charging coil.

For a Galaxy S20, we had to do a bit of maneuvering to get phone centered and start charging.

At the back of the power the bank is a stand you can set up, which makes the power bank into a wireless charging stand. Once again, this is most beneficial for iPhone users as you can even place your iPhone horizontally. We did use the power bank in stand mode with the Galaxy S20, and it did well enough, but it’s not exactly an optimal user experience without the magnetism.

Structure and Material:

The build quality of this power bank is excellent. The front has glass showing the inner circuitry, the back is made of plastic, and the siding is made of thick Aluminum Alloy. It all comes together, which makes the power bank feel incredibly strong and will last a long time.

Tech:

During wireless charging, your phone and the power bank will get warm. They won’t get hot, but they will get warm, which generally happens with wireless charging.

Reliability

This is an excellent choice if you have an iPhone 12 or 13 and only want a power bank used for wireless charging. If you’ve got any other phone, it’s best to look for a power bank that has ports that you can charge from. To get the most out of this MOMAX power bank, you’ll need a MagSafe compatible phone and currently, that’d be the iPhone 12 and the iPhone 13.

Summary:

Charging power is okay because the power bank only features wireless charging and only has a Lightning input that can recharge the power bank at 12W.

The design of this MOMAX power bank is beautiful, with a see-through glass that shows the inner circuitry of the power bank. It’s also easy to use with a power button to begin wireless charging.

The charger has a great build with a glass front, plastic back, and Aluminum Alloy siding.

You should get this power bank if you have an iPhone 12 or iPhone 13. It’s not very reliable for other phones due to their lack of MagSafe compatibility.

Conclusion:

Few power banks on the market have very concise compatibility. This MOMAMX power bank is one of them, with it only featuring MagSafe wireless charging and a Lighting input; this is a power bank made for iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 users.
