Description

This is an iPhone 12 Pro DIY Magsafe Stand. I wanted something that would work with my iPhone12 Pro, and with a cheaper Qi charger. Specifically, it's designed to perfectly fit a Yootech Magnetic Wireless Charger, which works with both USB A and USB C connections. At the time of writing this, the charger is $13.99 via Amazon Prime in the US. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08LZM5F1D/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B08LZM5F1D&linkCode=as2&tag=digitalarseal-20&linkId=bcfee80e1f02e43182f449ae3c247cf1

It should work the same with regular iPhone 12 and the older iPhone 11 and 11 pro as well, but just without that magnetic alignment. I also opened up the slot for the USB cable to run out the back. The charger module fits snugly without the need for any adhesives or fasteners.

The beauty of the magnetic aspect is that it slightly shifts your phone as you place it down so that you get the best positioning for the most energy transfer to your phone. This works very well with my Pelican phone case as well.

Materials and methods

I used PLA Hatchbox filament, but any filament should do fine. The print is sized so the charge module snugly fits without the need for any glue. Enjoy!
