Turn your MagSafe charger into a stylish iPhone stand for just $29

Apple’s new MagSafe system for iPhone 12 makes magnets magical, and with the right accessories, it can be even better. Check out Elago’s brilliant new MagSafe stands, which hold your iPhone in a comfortable position while it’s charging for a mere $29.

By itself, Apple’s standard MagSafe charger does its job brilliantly. It charges your iPhone quickly, and unlike other wireless charging pads, it won’t slip out of position, leaving your iPhone with a dead battery. But it’s not exactly the most elegant charging solution.

A simple stand that holds your iPhone properly is a lot better, and with Elago’s new MS1 and MS2, you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

Both options sport clean and tasteful designs that look terrific on any desk or nightstand. They’re made entirely out of high-quality silicone so they’re virtually unbreakable, and they’re fully compatible with your existing MagSafe charging puck, so you don’t need to spend extra on another.

The MS1 and MS2 keep your charging cable tidy so it won’t get in the way. They also keep your iPhone elevated and at an ideal angle for FaceTime calls, watching videos, and more. And because they’re soft and flexible, there’s no need to worry about the stands scratching your iPhone.

Almost perfect

Application was simple but despite careful cleaning/prep, two faint bubbles occasionally appear, but since they're along edge, don't affect functionality. Otherwise, performs as advertised.

Quality paper textured screen protector 5/5

Using the Apple Pencil 2nd gen with this gives far more control and a more traditional writing feel. It definitely makes sketching and even taking notes anymore natural experience. However, finger sensitivity does go down a bit. You’ll have to be more intentional as light touches will no longer be recognized as easily. It also completely removes screen glare which is awesome, but it does make greasy smudges more difficult to clean off, and you can still see smudges in the textured surface.

But the negatives are only mildly annoying. The benefits far out way anything negative.

My Thoughts on SwitchEasy PaperLike iPad Screen Protector

Lengthy product title....Yes, I ordered this screen protector based on Cult of Mac's product description that it's like writing on paper. Bottom's a far better screen protector that aids "writing" with an Apple Pencil (I have the 1st gen version), greatly reduces finger prints (always good) when using the Apple Pencil, input is immediate and precise. I'm a lefty and this screen protector allows minimal effort when writing electronically. I'm not an artist so I cannot rate how this screen protector handles an artist's desires. I will say my primitive artwork (cups, objects, etc.) drawn with my iPencil are spot on and represent my vision for my coffee cups, primitive as they may be,.

Overall, I have no buyer's regrets for this purchase. However, some caveats...the application instructions are verrry sparse (A and B on two tabs, that's it). Once on, the tactile sensation is has a "pebbly" like feel when you run your finger over the screen protectors surface. It's a strange sensation that always surprises me, yet, its this "pebbly" surface that allows the user to work their magic, whether writing or drawing as well as keeping fingerprints to a minimum. For use on a iPad, it works wonderfully and will capture your vision. However, this screen protector will never feel the same as writing with a fountain pen on quality paper.

Again, no buyer's remorse...just my thoughts on a quality product that works well on an iPad.


Very nice metal strap

Looks good, quality feels good as well.

Cute, yet effective protection for my AirPods Pro

This AirPods Pro case fits pretty snugly, and seems to protect my AirPods pretty well. Wireless charging through the case works great -- and it is also easy to access the Lightning charging port on the bottom. The ring for attaching to a backpack or belt loop is fairly solid. And it looks like a tiny suitcase :) Overall, it works great for me!
