Soon after I bought an Apple MagSafe charger (Apple/Amazon) for my iPhone, I became really annoyed because it was constantly falling off my nightstand, either when the cable got pulled accidentally, or when one of my cats knocked it off on purpose. After months of that, I finally looked for a solution.

I found the highly-rated Etsy seller 3DofMind, who 3D-prints charging stands that accommodate iPhones, Apple Watches, and AirPods. The one I bought is designed for the iPhone’s sideways StandBy mode. It looks unobtrusive on a nightstand or desk and it does what it says on the tin. The non-slip rubber feet are a nice bonus.

I do have to remove my phone case to use the stand, but that’s probably because my case is a slippery and slightly bulky OtterBox, and my phone is small (iPhone 12 Mini). The product page does feature a video with a case-clad phone being charged.

This MagSafe charging stand is $21.99 at Etsy and available in eight colors and two options: iPhone Pro Max and iPhone/iPhone Pro. It’s compatible with iPhone 12/13/14/15 models as well as AirPods.

While the Apple Store sells MagSafe charging stands, of course, and you can find lots at Amazon, here’s an opportunity to support a small business.

P.S. Happy Holi and Happy Purim to those who celebrate!
