ESR touts its in-house HaloLock system as like MagSafe, but better. To this end, the OEM asserts that its latest version of Apple’s own wireless charger can restore a full battery to devices such as those of the new iPhone 14 series “30 minutes faster than other MagSafe chargers“, thanks to an advanced cooling mechanism.
The new HaloLock nini Wireless Charger is also backed to be more robust than its competitors, thanks to a new braided nylon cable”tested to stay looking and working like new after more than 6,000 bends“.
This upgrade, combined with “powerful” magnets is rated to hang on to up to 1,200 grams of weight: potentially ideal for those who would like to dangle their 14 Pro Max by the cable while using its third-gen MagSafe features.
On that note, ESR also now offers the HaloLock Universal MagSafe Ring 360, a new, thin, adhesive adapter for those who want to make their current case MagSafe, or generally convert it to wireless charging compatibility.
It comes with plastic guides to help ensure precise alignment with the internal coils of several generations of iPhones, from the X to the 14 series, as well as a select model from the Samsung Galaxy S10, S20, S21 and S22 lines.
Furthermore, unlike Apple’s alternative solutions, it comes in black, blue or green rather than merely white.
They have launched alongside new Cyber Armor Tough and Orbit Hybrid cases for the AirPods Pro 2, which also support HaloLock to allow the new ANC earbuds’ own case to charge wirelessly right through them while protecting it from drops and shocks.
ESR has announced all of these new accessories via Amazon, but has yet to reveal pricing for all of them.
I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
