PowerBank Lightning battery backup for iPhone
Our take on the Scosche MAGPB 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 for my phone, but having one more device loose in my pocket or bag has always kept me from pulling the trigger. Scosche's MAGPB portable power bank is a persuasive solution. Equipped with safe magnet technology, the MAGPB stays securely attached to the included adhesive-backed MagicPlate™ affixed to the back of your phone. Scosche gives you two ultra-thin MagicPlate sizes that hide easily behind a protective case. Plug the MAGPB's Lightning connector into your iPhone and let the charging begin.
Unlike a battery-powered phone case, you can easily swap this power bank between Lightning devices. When fully charged, its rechargeable lithium-ion battery even has enough juice to power two iPhones (or the same phone twice!). With a 2.1-amp output, the MAGPB safely charges your device at its fastest rate possible. A built-in LED indicator lets you know how much power you have left.
The MAGPB is designed for charging the following devices:
iPhone: iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 6(s) Plus, iPhone 6(s), iPhone 5s, iPhone 5c and iPhone 5
iPad: iPad Pro, iPad Air (2), iPad mini with Retina, iPad 4th generation, iPad mini
iPod: iPod touch 5th generation, iPod nano 7th generation

MagicMount PowerBank (for Apple Lightning): Slim, stylish, lightweight and powerful; the Scosche MagicMount PowerBank (MAGPB) provides 4000mAh of power in a remarkably portable, compact design that secures seamlessly to your Apple Lightning device. 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 Apple Lightning device. Plus, there is a microUSB 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 iPhone 6 or 6S up to two times. At 2.1A, the PowerBank's battery will allow your iPhone with Lightning connector 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 (MAGPB) 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 Apple Lightning device. You can choose to apply the adhesive plate directly to your device, under the battery cover or to the outside of the case.
MagicPlate: Once the MagicPlate is applied to the back of your Apple Lightning device, simply hover your device near the magnetic surface of the MagicMount Power Bank (MAGPB) and it instantly locks securely in place. Two MagicPlates are included - Small & Large.
Protective Film: The Scosche MagicMount PowerBank (MAGPB) comes with a protective film that can be used when you plan to directly attach a MagicPlate to the back of your Apple Lightning iPod, iPhone, or iPad. 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 device securely in place and are 100% safe for Apple Lightning devices.
