Fast and snappy

Apple brought magnets in phones back in fashion with the iPhone 12, and now the Android universe has its first real competitor. Realme has taken the wraps off its answer to MagSafe, and it’s called MagDart. This new charging ecosystem includes a 50W MagDart Charger, which is claimed to be the world’s fastest magnetic wireless charger. It is capable of charging a phone from 0-100% in just under an hour. But there’s a catch, unless you’re Magneto, this charger won’t work for you for the simple reason that there aren’t any compatible Android phones out there. The only phone with built-in MagDart support right now is the Realme Flash, which is a concept. The MagDart ecosystem also includes a 15W Charger, which is quite thin (3.9mm), and can charge a 4,500mAh battery in 90 minutes. There’s also a magnetic power bank that will snap onto the back of your phone. Last two are more of a snap-on accessory for your phone. The MagDart wallet will hold your cards, and also act as a kickstand for the phone. The MagDart Beauty Light is a ring light to let you click well-lit selfies.
