MagSafe® Products

Do the Magsafe® products charge your phone?

No, you will need to remove the Wallet to charge your phone wirelessly 

Does the MagSafe® Wallet drain the battery?

No, the Wallet will not drain the cell phone battery 

Can you keep cash in MagSafe® Wallet?

Yes!  You can keep cards, cash or your ID 

Does Magsafe® Wallet damage credit cards?

No, the Wallet will not damage the strip on your cards

Does Magsafe® Wallet demagnetize credit cards?

No, the Wallet will not demagnetize your cards

How do I avoid demagnetizing my cards?

-Regular credit and debit cards contain High Coercivity (HiCo) strips, meaning they are stronger and hold their own against demagnetizing in general. MagSafe magnets do no harm against these

-Avoid carrying your cards loose inside your pocket, especially if you carry items like keys and coins in the same pocket. These items can scratch the magnetic strip on the card and damage it. 

-Coming into contact with refrigerator magnets, clasps on wallets, and magnets on the back of tape measures and flashlights can demagnetize a credit or debit card. When you place your card in your wallet, be sure not to rub it up against the metal clasp and place it as far away from it as possible.

-Store your card in a way that the magnet strips avoid getting scratched
