Perhaps most unique of the bunch is the Face Tracking Magnetic Phone mount. This allows you to connect your iPhone 12 atop a motorized base. An accompanying app follows your face as you record video which can then be shared directly to your social media. It will run $64.99 when available.

The BoostCharge Magnetic Portable Wireless Charger is very similar to the Anker and Hyper magnetic battery packs and it sits on the back of your phone to use while on the go. It costs $49.95 from Belkin when it launches.

While all of these devices magnetically connect to the back of any iPhone 12 model, none are official MagSafe chargers or mounts, unlike Belkin's other Apple-certified devices. Belkin's official MagSafe devices include the Car Vent Mount Pro and 2-in-1 and 3-in-1 BoostCharge Pro stands.

    Belkin says the portable magnetic charger (the one that doesn’t cover the camera) provides 2500 mAh and that it gives you 50% more power for an iPhone 12. Since an iPhone 12 has 2815 mAh, it seems that means we lose ~ 1100 mAh (of the 2500) via magnetic induction transmission, heat, etc. and are applying ~ 1400ish mAh net extra power to the iPhone. I guess that’s the only sad thing about all of this MagSafe stuff, its inefficiency. It sure is a nice feature though! I love my magnetic charging stand, w/ one handed removal in the morning.
