The price of the MagSafe Duo
Along with the opening of reservations for the new iPhone 12 Pro Max and iPhone 12 mini, the apple company also added the new charger to its Apple Store Online MagSafe Duo among other accessories such as the new covers. However, it is this new charger that had aroused the most interest and attracted the most attention after knowing its price. 149 euros is what it costs This dual wireless charging base and of course, does Apple stop braking with its price?
MagSafe Duo is, as you can see from the images, a wireless charging base designed so that users of iPhone, AirPods (with a case compatible with Qi charging) and Apple Watch, can charge their devices two by two. Although to give it something more value, it is a folding solution. So if you want to carry it from one place to another, in a bag or backpack during your day to day, it will be much more comfortable.
However, seeing what it costs, you have to stop and think carefully if it is really worth it or not. Because this base arrives alone, without a power adapter. Therefore, you will have to get a charger and if you want it to be Apple’s 20W, then you will have to add 25 euros more to the total cost.
That is, 149 euros of the charging base and 25 of the power adapter make a total of 174 euros. That’s what it would cost to get this solution. At least the USB C to Lightning cable is included in the box. But why have not used USB C to power the base? Okay, the iPhone uses Lightning, it is assumed that you will have a Lightning cable before a USB C, etc., but if the rest of the products are migrating to that new connector this starts to be a madness.
However, despite all the inconveniences that may be found due to price, connectors or limitations in the total charging power that we already know will be 12W in the iPhone 12 mini and 15W in the rest of the new iPhone, this new accessory It is one of the most anticipated of the entire catalog of official proposals that make use of MagSafe. So there are already many who are waiting for them to start accepting orders or for it to arrive in stores to get one. Because in the Apple Store Online for now it only appears listed, but cannot be added to the shopping cart.
Logically everyone is free to do what they want with their money and it is clear that you also have to give value to the product in question. It is not just another base, it has striking design details and that Apple finish. But if after seeing the price you have been somewhat down, we can only tell you that there are multiple very interesting wireless charging bases as an alternative to this one from Apple.
