Started in 2018, MAGFAST was built out of necessity from its founder and inventor Seymour Segnit, when he was trying to find the correct chargers for his family. Since he could not find what he was looking for, he chose to make it himself. Seymour received his degree in engineering at Oxford University. He has had a diverse career, working at Saatchi & Saatchi and Ogilvy & Mather. He also worked at London’s largest radio station as an on-air personality. He has had experience as a co-founder in another startup and also worked at another USB charger company.
MAGFAST chargers offer a solution that is wireless. Instead of wires, components connect to each other with magnets. The compatibility that is needed between devices is built into the device. It has the ability to charge numerous devices at one time.
MAGFAST contains two power banks. It is able to handle two devices on the left and two on the right. MAGFAST also has an extremely powerful charger. It is actually strong enough to give your car a jump-start despite being so small and portable. The USB charger gives you the advantage of being able to charge your devices when you are on the go. The MAGFAST Air is a charging stand. You can put it on your desk, as a place to charge your devices. It can also attach to the MAGFAST power bank magnetically.
