Coming with a USB-C cable and available in both 5,000mAh and 10,000mAh, the built-in magnets align the phone to the power bank and automatically enables MagSafe-style charging as soon as the power bank is attached. Super convenient and fast, users can choose from 7.5W or 12W wired charging and the powerful magnets have 1000g of holding force keeping the phone safe, and securely locked to the power bank.

A Closer Look
The Power Bank is quite small and can easily be carried out.
When you want to use it you have two options – either using MagSafe mode by either placing the phone onto the Power Bank, or by placing the Power Bank onto the phone, or by using a cable connecting from the Power Bank to the phone you want to charge. If you are in a rush, charging using a cable is quicker as it charges at 12W where as its 7.5W when using MagSafe.
When using MagSafe charging, the charging begins the moment the Power Bank and the phone connect. The Power Bank supports all caseless iPhone 14/13/12 series phones, MagSafe and HaloLock cases, and standard cases with the HaloLock Universal Ring.
The Power Bank is held onto the phone with very powerful magnets using 1000g of holding force so the Power Bank isn’t going to fall off when you are carrying the phone and Power Bank connected.
The Power Bank also supports pass-through charging so you can charge both the Power Bank and your phone at the same time.
When fully charged, the Power Bank can provide a range of charging – for example, you can fully charge an iPhone 13 mini from empty, or provide about 60% charge for an iPhone 13 Pro Max. The Power Bank is designed to provide a charging boost rather than multiple full charges for your phone.
One other interesting feature is that because the Power Bank is quite small, when connected to the phone via MagSafe it doesn’t obscure the camera, so you can continue to take pictures when it’s attached.
The ESR Halolock mini Wireless Power Bank is available now priced around £35.99 for the 5,000mAh version and is available in either black or white.
