It’s fair to say that MagSafe didn’t have the most auspicious start on the iPhone. Introduced with 2020’s iPhone 12, charging technology has given way to ugly accessories and weak magnetic attachments. But two years later, MagSafe’s true potential has finally been unlocked – Pikachu style.

A YouTuber has shared his own homemade Pokémon MagSafe charger, which sees Pikachu charging an iPhone with his electric cheek. The clay model is seriously impressive – not to mention downright adorable. (Check out the best iPhone 13 deals if you want to experience MagSafe for yourself.)

Clay Yoshirin Pokemon Clay Art is, as the name suggests, an account dedicated to clay Pokémon art. The artist creates super realistic models of the creatures – and the Pikachu Charger is arguably the coolest yet. Due to Classes Pikachu’s electric cheek can charge a phone.

The 11-minute video details the painstaking project of creating the model, starting with a rather crude-looking clay mould. But by the time it’s finished we’re looking at something I still can’t believe it’s not officially licensed. (Apple, Nintendo – go for it.)

Needless to say, the project is raging on Reddit. “I absolutely need these,” commented one user, while another added, “I need 5! I know he doesn’t sell them, but if he did, that would be a great daytime.” Indeed, it seems the only downside to the project is that the artist is an amateur – so we probably won’t see them for sale anytime soon. Which undoubtedly makes each edition all the more special.

From the lousy MagSafe battery to the drop-prone leather wallet, Apple’s own MagSafe offerings haven’t really been a winner so far. But this is an example of how fun and creative technology can be. Looking for new equipment? Check out today’s best iPhone 13 deals below.
