Realme announced a whole new ecosystem with the introduction of MagDart, the company’s new way to charge smartphones. Similar to Apple’s MagSafe mechanism, MagDart uses magnetic tech that powers various accessories for phones, either as charging or power solutions or other accessories.
The company will be bringing its MagDart tech to phones like the Realme GT, which will get a new case called the MagDart case, that will be able to add wireless charging support on the phone.
The case doesn’t look too bad either with a full carbon fiber back. It also leaves a USB-C port open for use, meaning you can still connect the phone to a laptop, for instance, while using the case to charge.
50W and 15W MagDart Chargers
Realme also launched a hefty MagDart wireless charger. The 50W adapter is currently the fastest magnetic wireless charger for phones right now and can charge a 4,500mAh battery in under an hour, as Realme demonstrated with the Flash concept phone.
A built-in fan in the adapter keeps it cool along with the device it is charging. While pretty powerful and fast (almost as fast as 50W wired charging), not everyone might want to carry this hefty adapter around.
This is why Realme also launched a less-powerful 15W magnetic wireless charger. The 3.9mm thin charging adapter is even thinner than Apple’s MagSafe and charges devices at 15W. Realme claims it can fully juice up a 4,500mAh battery in 90 minutes.
MagDart Power Bank Base
Realme also unveiled yet another charging adapter, this time, one that can wirelessly charge your device as well as act as an on-the-go power solution. The part that acts as the stand for the phone can actually detach from the base and be used as a wireless powerbank on-the-go. The accessory is also made out of vegan leather and aluminium.
Realme also used its MagDart tech to launch a few more accessories. These include the MagDart Beauty Light, which acts as a portable flash with 60 LEDs. It has no battery of its own but uses the MagDart mechanism to reverse charge some power from the phone.
There is the MagDart Wallet that can hold up to three credit or debit cards and also comes with a built-in kickstand that can be used to hold the phone up on a flat surface. This accessory is also made of aluminium and vegan leather.
Realme has not announced the exact availability or prices of the MagSafe accessories. The availability of the same is also not yet confirmed for India, but Realme is likely to bring the products in the country at a later date.
