The Anker MagGo 633 Magnetic Wireless Charger is a great-value multi-function iPhone and AirPods charger, stand and portable power bank
There are many third-party MagSafe accessories on the market but few as adaptable as Anker’s MagGo 633 Magnetic Wireless Charger.
It’s a versatile, multi-function 4-in-1 device that is help at home and when you’re on the go. It’s compatible with all series 12 and 13 iPhones, although when used a portable magnetic power bank it will not as easily fit the iPhone mini.
Design and functions
Calling it just a wireless charger doesn’t cover the 633’s multi-use functions.
Yes, it looks like just a wireless charging stand for the iPhone 12 and 13 series models, but its charging pad is removable, so it is also a portable MagSafe battery pack like its little brother the Anker MagGo 622 – more details in our
Anker MagGo 622 Magnetic Battery review.
On top of this, or rather on top of the stand’s base, it can wirelessly charge an AirPods case as well as the iPhone.
Plus, it’s an iPhone stand that can magnetically hold the screen in either portrait or landscape mode, with a 40-degree adjustable angle for comfortable viewing.
When removed from the stand, the battery pack is almost identical to the standalone Anker 622 portable MagSafe power bank. The main difference is at the base where there are additional connectors to charge the pack in the stand’s holster.
A USB-C port remains so you can charge it outside of the stand, too.

It also lacks the 622’s built-in stand, which makes sense as it is part of a sturdier stand itself.
Otherwise, it’s basically the same product, with identical battery capacity – although it’s thinner and 14g lighter.
Unlike other MagSafe battery packs, the Anker 633 comes with a wall charger and USB-C cable.
The Anker 633’s detachable battery pack has a 5,000mAh battery, which sounds massive but needs to be high because of the vagaries of inefficient wireless charging.
5,000mAh is still much higher than Apple’s MagSafe Battery Pack, which boasts a mere 1,460mAh – although if you consider Apple’s higher voltage, it’s more like 2,920mAh; more details in our
Apple MagSafe Battery Pack review.
To get a more real-world comparison, we tested the battery packs with a simple drain and charge routine. We waited till our test-unit iPhone 13 Pro faded to 5% battery and then set the battery packs to work.
The Anker MagGo 633 Magnetic Battery made it to 89% before running out, so we have awarded it a score of 84% recharge – beating Apple’s 60% and even the 622’s 80%.
Anker’s 7.5W charging speed now matches that found in the Apple battery pack – before a firmware update Apple’s charged at just 5W. But an advantage of the Apple pack is that you can simultaneously wired and wirelessly charge a phone at up to 15W with the Apple battery pack, which isn’t possible with Anker.
The Anker MagGo 633 is priced at $119.99 or £99.99. That’s not far off the same price as the Apple MagSafe Battery Pack, which lacks the charging stand, wall charger and cable.
It is available in three colours: Dolomite White, Interstellar Gray and Misty Blue.
The Anker MagGo 633 Magnetic Wireless Charger is a great-value multi-function charger (MagSafe for iPhone and Qi for AirPods), stand and portable power bank that costs around the same as Apple’s underpowered but admittedly smarter MagSafe Battery Pack.
It will recharge a drained iPhone 12 or 13 to 85%, which should be enough for most people on the go.
Back at base, it works as both a charger and a stable iPhone stand and will even charge an AirPods case at the same time as the iPhone.
