Long-time accessory maker Apple has been offering Moft Iphone Stands plus magnetic battery – but there was one aspect of the stands we didn’t like.
Moft has several foldable accessories for the iPhone that work as stands, wallets, or both. they work with MagSafe It does not require adhesives to attach to the device.
We tested the Snap Stand Power Kit, the Snap Phone Stand and Wallet, and the Flash Wallet and Stand.
Snap Phone Stand & Wallet
Snap Phone Stand & Wallet is very versatile. It supports the iPhone in portrait and landscape modes for various workflows and content types. There is also a “floating mode” where the stand is vertical, but the iPhone is horizontal.
The landscape and portrait modes work fine, but the floating mode is unusable. It was out of whack with MagSafe’s magnetic alignment, and the connection just wasn’t strong enough to hold up our iPhone 14.
Moft says it can handle three cards, though two cards fit more comfortably in our testing.
We didn’t like the wallet side of the stand. There was no quick way to extract a card from it to present to the cashier.
Unlike competing products such as the one from Apple, there is no chance for people to use their thumb to eject the card. Instead, you have to fumble with the fold-out stand component to lift the top and try to pull the card out.
It can be a better experience for situations that require quick interactions, such as paying for goods with a credit or debit card in person.
Flash wallet and stand
This product has a similar problem. Works great as a stand and supports iPhone in portrait and landscape modes. The stand is also adjustable to change the viewing angle.
Moft says this wallet supports two cards, and our testing matches that spec.
Unlike the Snap Wallet, the Flash Wallet has a slot to slide a card into. But it does require lifting the stiff hinge to access the thumb hole, though the process is still a bit easier than the Snap Wallet.
We’re looking for a quick and easy solution to wallets that don’t require multiple steps or components to remove a card, and the holder doesn’t fit that desire.
Pick up the carrier power pack
Snap Stand Power Set is an external battery with a capacity of 3400 mAh similar to the Apple battery MagSafe battery But with more power.
It’s made of vegan leather, which gives the battery a premium, luxurious feel. It’s thin, lightweight, and supports pass-through charging so people can charge their iPhone and battery pack at the same time.
It’s our charge iPhone 14 in about 2 1/2 hours at up to 7.5 watts output. We did notice that it did heat up the iPhone during use — like all Qi-focused chargers — but other than that it worked beautifully.
Like other Moft products, the battery has a fold-out stand that doubles as a wallet. However, it does not have a sturdy battery attachment and slips off easily.
The stand is almost identical to the Snap Phone Stand & Wallet and has the same restrictions that will likely lead to the user getting confused in withdrawing their card.
