PowerBank battery backup for USB-C devices
Our take on the Scosche MAGPBC by Crutchfield's Alexander Hrabe
Scosche's MAGPB is magnetically secured to the back of your phone.
Bye-bye to bulky power
I've always liked the idea of having backup power, but having one more device loose in my pocket or bag has always kept me from pulling the trigger. Scosche's MAGPBC portable power bank is a persuasive solution. Equipped with safe magnet technology, the MAGPBC stays securely attached the included adhesive-backed MagicPlate™ affixed to the back of your device. Scosche gives you two ultra-thin MagicPlate sizes that hide easily behind a protective case. Plug the MAGPBC's USB-C connector into your device and let the charging begin.
Unlike a battery-powered case, you can easily swap this power bank between USB-C devices. When fully charged, its rechargeable lithium-ion battery even has enough juice to power two devices (or the same phone twice!). With a 2.1-amp output, the MAGPBC safely charges your device at its fastest rate possible. A built-in LED indicator lets you know how much power you have left.

MagicMount PowerBank (with microUSB-C): Slim, stylish, lightweight and powerful; the Scosche MagicMount PowerBank (MAGPBC) provides 4000mAh of power in a remarkably portable, compact design that secures seamlessly to your smartphone with microUSB-C. Inside the package that comes with the PowerBank are two MagicPlates. These metal plates allow the powerbank battery (which contains the actual magnets) to magically mount to your smartphone device. Plus, there is a microUSB-C port and an included microUSB-to-USB cable to recharge the PowerBank itself.
4000mAh Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery: The internal 4000mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery can charge a dead USB-C device up to two times. At 2.1A, the PowerBank's battery will allow your smartphone with microUSB-C to charge safely at its fastest possible rate. The MagicMount PowerBank comes partially charged right out of the package and has an LED indicator so you can quickly check out how much juice is left.
Powerful Neodymium Magnets: The MagicMount PowerBank (MAGPBC) uses powerful neodymium magnets to grip safely and securely to the MagicPlate, which is a small adhesive metal plate that can be attached very easily to the back of your smartphone device. You can choose to apply the adhesive plate directly to your smartphone, under the battery cover or to the outside of the case.
MagicPlate: Once the MagicPlate is applied to the back of your smartphone, simply hover your device near the magnetic surface of the MagicMount Power Bank (MAGPBC) and it instantly locks securely in place. Two MagicPlates are included - Small & Large.
Protective Film: The Scosche MagicMount PowerBank (MAGPBC) comes with a protective film that can be used when you plan to directly attach a MagicPlate to the back of your smartphone device. The film is designed to assist in plate removal should you decide to do that at some point in the future.
Compatibility: The powerful earth magnets of the MagicMount system hold your smartphone device securely in place and are 100% safe for most smartphones - like the Google Pixel, HTC 10, Motorola Moto Z, and Samsung Galaxy S8.
- The MagicMount system does not work with hard drive devices. The strong magnetic fields produced by these neodymium magnets is enough to damage hard drive devices.
- MagicMount is not recommended for use with a mobile device encased in a wallet-style case cover.
