Full Review

While you can plug into every wall socket with a separate cable and wall charger when working from home , that’s not always an option when traveling. As such, all-in-one chargers like Apple’s MagSafe Duo and Satechi’s Quatro Wireless Power Bank have an understandable appeal. Sure, they’re not the fast-charging monsters touting triple-digit wattage, but they offer simultaneous charging for a one-stop spot to your devices, and you can simply pack up by the end of your trip.

SnapWireless PowerBase Go For Apple Watch

In this review, we’ll look at SnapWireless’ PowerBase Go. It has three charging spots, each designed for a specific device: an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods. Short of charging a MacBook, this is pretty much a complete package—or is it? It is missing some features, is relatively large for travel, and it doesn’t come with a charging adapter. Deal-breakers? Only one way to find out…

…But before we jump in, we have to point out that we’ll specifically be looking at the Apple version of the PowerBase Go, as that’s the model we have. There’s also a Samsung-specific version for Samsung, and SnapWireless says to get that version if you use Samsung devices. That being said, since the PowerBase Go uses Qi wireless charging, it should be quite brand agnostic so long as the device in question also supports the standard.

The Rundown

The first thing you should know about the PowerBase Go is that it doesn’t come with a charging adapter, though it comes with a USB-A to USB-C cable. SnapWireless says it’s to reduce waste, and it should also translate into savings. Regardless, you’ll need a separate charging adapter to supply 18 watts of power. The power requirement is understandable, given that it’s charging up to three devices.

SnapWireless PowerBase Go For Apple Full Set

As for the PowerBase Go itself, it’s quite aesthetically pleasing. Each pad is its own square base with a heathered gray fabric around it for style. The housing around the edges is a bit plasticky when you poke and prod around it, but it looks quite elegant on any bedside or coffee table. Lastly, the pads connect via rubber segments. They’re arguably the cheapest-looking part of the PowerBase Go but they don’t really hurt the overall stylishness.

What could hurt the styling is the fabric finish. Anyone with anything made of fabric can tell you that it inevitably stains. Whether from accidental spills or simply the dust in the air, the material can accumulate dirt. Our sample has remained pristine throughout the testing process, though we’ll have to see how it holds up during long-term testing.

SnapWireless PowerBase Go Material

But now, let’s talk about the practical side of the PowerBase Go. From left to right, you have the MagSafe-compatible charging pad for an iPhone, the charging pad for an Apple Watch, and the charging pad for a pair of AirPods. All three charge via the Qi wireless charging standard. The included cable plugs into the USB-C port on the far edge of the Apple Watch charging pad. Kudos to SnapWireless for using USB-C, by the way. As prevalent as USB-C is, we’ve had our fair share of devices that still use micro USB or even proprietary ones. *Ahem* Lightning *Ahem* .

The charging pad for the iPhone supports up to 15 watts of power. Some (we’re looking at you, Android users) may scoff at that, but it’s arguably more than enough if you primarily charge at night while sleeping. There are magnets built into the pad that correspond with MagSafe-compatible iPhones. If your iPhone doesn’t support MagSafe, have no fear, as SnapWireless includes one of their SnapMag Rings in the box. Stick that to the back of your non-MagSafe iPhone (or the back of your case if you’re using one), and presto: your phone now snaps securely to the pad.

SnapWireless PowerBase Go Charging

Next up is the built-in magnetic Apple Watch charger in the middle. It flips up so you can still see the watch face while lying in bed pondering the mysteries of life or if the 3 watts of charging is fast enough for you. We can’t give any insight into the former, though we can shed some perspective on the latter. For context, fast wireless charging is supported on Series 7 and Series 8 Apple Watches at a rate of 5 watts, while normal charging speeds top out at 3 watts. Like with the iPhone, the slower charging speed isn’t as big a deal if you primarily charge your devices overnight. However, if you’re looking for a 0-100% top-up while on the go, we recommend using either a faster charger or a more convenient one like Satechi’s Quatro since you can carry it while charging.

Lastly is the charging pad for the AirPods, which charges at a 5-watt rate, which is more than enough for the AirPods. We don’t have much to complain about, though it’s missing MagSafe compatibility. Certain AirPods models support MagSafe, so it would’ve been nice to see it here, as well.

SnapWireless PowerBase Go Charging Cellphone

We really dig the clever theater mode feature, so you can use the PowerBase Go as a wireless charging phone stand. Arranged in a triangle, this puts your iPhone in front and your Apple Watch at the back, with the AirPods charging pad as the base. This arrangement makes sense since, if you’re watching a movie, you’d ideally be looking at your iPhone, charging your Apple Watch at the back, and wearing your AirPods anyway.

Packability

For travel purposes, the PowerBase Go is on the chunkier side of the wireless charging size spectrum when folded. Don’t get us wrong; it’s not like it selfishly occupies the entirety of the Aer Slim Pouch we’re using. But it’s notably thicker than Apple’s MagSafe Duo, even on a per-charging-pad basis.

SnapWireless PowerBase Go In Pouch

Then again, you do get a lot of functionality for its size since it can charge three devices simultaneously and works as a phone stand. With that in mind, it’s not that difficult to justify its chunky size.

Quick Comparison

We have a bunch of different solutions that are comparable to the PowerBase Go. First is a combination of Apple’s MagSafe Duo and the included charger for the Apple Watch. In terms of charging speed, it’s more or less the same, and any difference is super minimal. For context, the MagSafe Duo tops out at 14 watts for charging an iPhone, which is only one less than the PowerBase Go.

SnapWireless PowerBase Go Comparison

Size-wise, this combination is arguably smaller than the PowerBase Go, even once you factor in the required cables for both. Then again, you’d have two cords versus only one for the PowerBase Go, not to mention you’d need an adapter with two ports. Alternatively, swap out the default Apple Watch charger for Satechi’s USB-C Magnetic Charging Dock . However, it still needs its own USB-C port, so you’ll have to plug it in directly to a charging adapter or into your MacBook.

Lastly, there’s the Satechi Quatro Wireless Power Bank. Like the PowerBase Go, it can wirelessly charge your Apple Watch and AirPods at the same time. If you want to charge your iPhone quickly, you’ll have to plug it in using a cable since its Qi wireless charging tops out at 5 watts. So you can use it away from any wall sockets, though you’ll have to keep it topped up.

Usage Timeline

Condition: Excellent

  • Clever design unfolds to reveal 3 charging pads, though it’s much bulkier than Apple’s MagSafe Duo
  • Felt material feels nice in the hand
  • Apple Watch charging puck folding mechanism doesn’t feel the most durable on first test and won’t fast-charge your watch at 3W max output
  • A little bummed about the watch charger not being rated for fast charging
  • Great look to it, though the hollow plastic makes it feel a tad cheap
  • Theater mode is a great touch for propping a phone up in a pinch
  • Fit nicely inside of a tech kit, but still much bulkier to pack than Apple’s MagSafe Duo

mophie snap+ multi-device travel charger review – power all your devices wherever you go

mophie snap+ multi-device travel charger

REVIEW – Charging on the go while traveling, at the office, or even at a coffee shop can be a real pain. You need separate chargers, multiple types of cables, and finding enough power outlets can be a problem, too. Chargers with multiple USB-A and USB-C outlets are nice, but you still need to keep a variety of cables on hand. With the mophie snap+ multi-device travel charger, you can leave some of those cables behind and charge multiple devices, including two of them wirelessly, with a kit that includes everything you need to get started.

What is it?

mophie’s snap+ multi-device travel charger (I’ll call it the snap+ from now on) is a portable, folding charging kit that includes a Qi pad for a compatible phone, a Qi pad for compatible Bluetooth headphones, and a USB-A and USB-C output, along with a charging brick, a USB-C cable, and a pouch to carry it all in.

mophie snap+ multi-device travel charger unfolded

Design and features

The mophie snap+ multi-device travel charger is made up of three black plastic charging squares, two of which are Qi-compatible wireless charging pads, the third has the USB-C input on one side and a USB-C and USB-A output on the other. The three squares are connected to each other by a soft, flexible plastic and the whole thing folds up into a compact size for traveling. There are magnets in the small flap at the end which help keep the charger closed when folded. Also included in the package is a 30W USB-C charging block and a USB-C to USB-C cable, both in black. The whole kit packs into a nice thick, gray, felt travel case, which has an elastic loop that hooks over a button on the flap to keep it closed.

The charger can support up to four devices at one time, two of them being wireless and two wired. The wireless pads can support iPhones or Android phones on one side and AirPods or other Qi-compatible Bluetooth earbuds on the other. The USB-C port can output up to 20W and the USB-A port can supply up to 12W.  

Included charging block and USB-C cable

Installation and setup

All that needs to be done for the mophie snap+ multi-device travel charger to be ready to go is to plug the USB-C cable into the charging pad and the charging block, and then plug the charging block into the wall. Once that’s done simply place your device on one of the Qi pads or plug a USB-A or USB-C cable into the center charging square.  

The larger Qi pad is MagSafe compatible so it magnetically holds onto iPhones, although it only outputs 7.5W for iPhones, it will also charge Qi-compatible Android phones at up to 15W. My Pixel 6 easily charged on it, and even magnetically attached to the pad, but the alignment was a little tricky to get right. mophie included a small magnetic ring that they call the snap adapter, which can be stuck to the back of a phone to aid in charging alignment. mophie includes an alignment guide to aid in placing the adapter on the back of the phone. I temporarily placed the adapter on the back of my Pixel 6 and placed the case back on the phone and the charging rate went up noticeably (as measured in the Ampere Android app).

Charging Google Pixel 6 on the main Qi pad

The mophie snap+ multi-device travel charger is convenient for traveling or anywhere you need a multi-device charger to help reduce some of the clutter from cables and charging blocks plugged into what usually ends up being too few outlets. On a recent trip, I used the snap+ to charge my iPhone 13 Pro Max, my Series 4 Apple Watch, and a pair of Bluetooth earbuds, which unfortunately don’t support Qi charging. I used the larger Qi pad for the iPhone, the USB-A output for my Apple Watch charging puck, and the USB-C output for the Bluetooth earbuds. Because I was charging these devices overnight I didn’t have to worry about the slower charging speeds while charging multiple devices. I would say this charger is better for overnight charging if you have multiple devices because you don’t get the full amount of wattage out of each output when charging more than one device at once.

I also tested several scenarios with my two phones, a TCL Android tablet, a different pair of Bluetooth earbuds that are Qi compatible, and a rechargeable flashlight. All four devices charged simultaneously, although when I plugged in the TCL tablet it limited the main Qi pad output and the Pixel phone had trouble staying in charging mode. The charging indicator at the top of the screen next to the clock stayed on but the Ampere app kept telling me “Not charging,” and “measuring.” I assume it was getting confused because there wasn’t much current coming into the phone. I let it charge for five minutes this way and the phone’s charge percentage didn’t go up. I tried the same thing with the iPhone, which also indicated that it was charging, but after five minutes its charge percentage hadn’t gone up, either. I’m sure that given more time it would have charged a little bit but much more slowly than the fastest speed available.

Charging TCL Tab 10 5G and Google Pixel 6 simultaneously

The TCL tablet also slowed its charging rate with multiple devices attached, charging at a rate of about half the speed as when it was on its own. I did notice one interesting thing when charging this tablet. I initially tested the charger with my iPad Pro and I used the USB-C cable that came with the iPad. I used the same cable with the TCL tablet and noticed it seemed to be charging pretty slowly. I switched to another USB-C cable and the charging speed more than doubled. I guess the Apple cable isn’t rated for the higher speeds available with PD charging of an Android tablet. This is interesting proof that not all USB-C cables are created equally.

I didn’t notice the charging block or the charging pads getting hot while charging although I’m sure they’ll warm up with extended charging time.  

Everything fits nicely into a nice, soft-sided case

What I like

  • I like being able to charge multiple devices, especially not needing any extra cables when charging only a Qi-compatible phone and Bluetooth earbuds
  • Everything fits into a nice case for travel

What I’d change

  • 15W MagSafe charging would be nice
  • More overall charging output power when charging multiple devices

Final thoughts

I find that I rarely use single-device chargers anymore. Most of my chargers can charge at least two devices at once, although several can do more. The mophie snap+ multi-device travel charger fits right in as a perfect solution for the times when I want to keep multiple devices charged up without carrying so many different chargers wherever I go.

The Best Wireless Portable Chargers and Power Banks

snap wireless travel charger review

Most wireless power banks, including both Qi and MagSafe options, are finicky to use while on the go, and none of them will charge an iPhone or other fast-charging device at top speed. But the ESR HaloLock Kickstand MagSafe Battery Pack (2G505) comes closest to nailing both tasks, offering plenty of power and capacity to keep your phone charged throughout the day, while adding a strong magnet to lock it firmly in place while it’s charging and a kickstand to prop it up for easy viewing.

Everything we recommend

snap wireless travel charger review

ESR Kickstand Wireless Power (HaloLock)

The best wireless power bank.

This power bank is MagSafe-compatible, can charge most phones up to three times, and includes a sturdy kickstand. It’s less powerful than many wired chargers but can still charge most phones at top speed.

Buying Options

snap wireless travel charger review

Anker 633 Magnetic Battery

A wireless power bank with two usb charging ports.

This model can charge most phones up to three times, and its MagSafe wireless charging pad, USB-C PD port, and USB-A port have a combined output of 18 W. Its kickstand is a bit flimsy but still handy.

Upgrade pick

snap wireless travel charger review

Satechi Duo Wireless Charger Power Stand

A wireless power bank with two qi charging pads.

This power bank has a combined output of 20 W and can charge most phones up to three times. It’s hefty and lacks MagSafe, but it can wirelessly charge multiple devices and its stand is super sturdy.

The ESR HaloLock Kickstand MagSafe Battery Pack (2G505) is the best choice for charging an iPhone 15 or other compatible device wirelessly when you’re in transit—whether you’re commuting, traveling, or just need a portable boost of power. It works with any Qi and/or MagSafe device, offering up to 10 W wireless charging speeds.

The sturdy metal kickstand works in landscape or portrait orientation, making it useful as a desktop dock or as a source of backup power while you’re watching movies on your handset. It weighs just 7.8 ounces and has a compact, streamlined shape that makes it easy to slip into a pocket or small purse.

Its USB-C Power Delivery (PD) port supports up to 20 W charging, allowing you to charge most phones (or the power bank itself) at top speed, and its pass-through charging capabilities allow you to recharge the power bank while simultaneously charging a phone or other device. Its combined maximum output of up to 20 W is as high as any model we tested, and with a rated capacity of 10,000 mAh it can fully charge most phones up to three times.

If the ESR HaloLock is unavailable, or you’d prefer a USB-A port to charge a third device, get the Anker 633 Magnetic Battery (A1641) . It’s about as compact and lightweight as our top pick, has just as much battery life, and (though not quite as sturdy as the ESR’s stand) includes a similar built-in kickstand.

Its MagSafe wireless charging pad can pass up to 7.5 W to compatible devices, its USB-C PD port supports up to 20 W charging speeds, and it adds a USB-A port, which can be handy for charging an additional device at up to 18 W charging speeds. Like our top pick, it has pass-through charging capabilities, though its combined maximum output (18 W) is slightly lower.

If you want the option to wirelessly charge multiple devices—say, an iPhone and a set of AirPods—the Satechi Duo Wireless Charger Power Stand is your best bet.

Like our top pick, it has pass-through charging, enough capacity to charge most phones up to three times, and a total maximum output of up to 20 W. Its USB-C PD port has up to 18 W of charging (output) or recharging (input) power. Its main wireless charging pad supports up to 10 W charging, and the entire top surface pops up to become a phone stand that’s more stable than the built-in kickstands of most models we tested.

Its second wireless charging pad is smaller and supports up to 5 W charging—making it well-suited for a smaller accessory, such as an Apple Watch. And while the Qi wireless charging pads lack the magnetic alignment of MagSafe, so they can’t easily be used in transit, both have a sufficiently grippy texture to keep devices in place during stationary charging.

The only notable drawback is its size—at 10.3 ounces, it’s slightly heavier than our other picks.

The research

Why you should trust us, who this is for, how we picked and tested, our pick: esr halolock kickstand magsafe battery pack (2g505), also great: anker 633 magnetic battery (a1641), upgrade pick: satechi duo wireless charger power stand, other good wireless power banks, what to look forward to, the competition.

I’ve been a science writer for nearly a decade, covering a wide variety of topics from particle physics to satellite remote sensing. Since joining Wirecutter in 2017, I’ve reported on electric vehicle chargers , rechargeable AA and AAA batteries , surge protectors , and more.

This guide builds upon the reporting of Nick Guy, a writer who has reviewed mobile accessories since 2011.

All three picks together.

A portable charger allows you to carry a backup source of power with you at all times, rather than having to track down a wall outlet when you’re running out of juice. And if you have an iPhone, AirPods, an Apple Watch, or another device with Qi or MagSafe charging capabilities, a wireless power bank saves you the hassle of packing separate charging cables.

Perhaps the most practical way to use one is to keep it plugged in with your phone resting on top of it when you’re stationary (at home or in the office, say) and then take both devices with you when you’re ready to leave.

MagSafe power banks support wireless charging speeds up to 15 watts, which is the fastest wireless charging speed that iPhones and other compatible devices can achieve, while Qi and some non-certified MagSafe wireless charging accessories are limited to 7.5 W output. Our testing shows that MagSafe is faster than the fastest Qi charging, though not twice as fast. Neither is capable of attaining the 20 W needed to fast-charge most phones.

Qi2, a new standard supporting wireless charging speeds up to 15 W for both Apple and Android mobile devices, was announced in January 2023, but no Qi2-certified devices are available as of this writing.

All three picks collapsed, stacked on top of each other, next to an iPhone for size reference.

To find the best wireless power bank, we combined the criteria we’ve previously used for Qi wireless chargers and portable power banks , including the following:

  • Design: We considered how well the power bank was built, how it looked, how portable it was, and how effectively its surface or magnets held a phone in place. The thin coils inside the charger and phone transmit and receive power, respectively, when you place them next to each other, and if they’re misaligned, the connection may break and prevent your phone from charging.
  • Capacity: More power is always better, and we especially looked for power banks offering the most battery life (measured in milliamp-hours, or mAh) for the weight and price.
  • Charging ports: We considered each power bank’s number of ports as well as their capabilities. For models with at least one USB-A output port, we valued those with faster charging speeds (including 12 W and Quick Charge 3.0 ) more highly than those limited to 5 W or 10 W charging. We also preferred power banks with USB-C Power Delivery (PD) ports supporting at least 20 W power input and output.
  • Wireless charging speed: Our tests have shown that a charger’s output level has little impact on how quickly most phones charge—that is, you don’t get a much faster charge from a higher-wattage charger. So although we tested for charging speed, the difference in results wasn’t particularly important. We just wanted to make sure none of the models performed far below average speeds.
  • Safety-standard compliance: A charger certified by the Wireless Power Consortium has been tested in an authorized lab and found to be both safe and in compliance with the Qi standard. If a wireless charger isn’t certified, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s unsafe or noncompliant, but (all other things being equal) we preferred it.
  • Maker reputation: We considered models only from companies that we knew from past experience had a good reputation for warranty coverage and customer support. Even if a charger is WPC-certified, there’s no guarantee it will never have a problem, and help should be available if you need it.
  • MagSafe: We gave preference to MagSafe-compatible battery packs, since they offer faster charging speeds and a more stable connection between the power bank and phone. Although only Apple products currently have built-in MagSafe compatibility, some protective cases can add MagSafe capabilities to Android phones as well.

We then tested both the wireless and wired charging capabilities of each model that met our criteria.

  • Wireless charging: We tested wireless charging output from each power bank by completely draining the battery of an iPhone in airplane mode, placing it on the charging pad, and then measuring the charge level after 30 minutes and one hour.
  • USB-A ports: We tested the maximum power draw from each port by plugging in an ammeter and a variable power load, and gradually increasing the power draw until the device overloaded and shut off.
  • USB-C ports: We used the Total Phase USB Power Delivery Analyzer and its Data Center Software to verify the advertised charging speeds of each USB-C port.

A close up of the ESR HaloLock

The ESR HaloLock Kickstand MagSafe Battery Pack (2G505) is the best power bank to wirelessly charge an iPhone 15 or other compatible device while traveling between home, school, work, and more. It has as much battery capacity as any model we tested, a MagSafe wireless charging pad, a fast-charging USB-C PD port, and a handy built-in kickstand—and it’s small enough to tuck in a pocket or small purse, too.

It wirelessly charges any Qi and/or MagSafe device. This power bank is capable of passing up to 10 W wirelessly. If you have a phone or other device that supports Qi charging, you can place it atop the wireless charging pad to top off the battery. If your device supports MagSafe charging, it’ll adhere firmly to the surface of the charging pad, so you can charge it wirelessly while on the go (it’s also less likely to get disconnected if bumped or jostled during stationary charging).

It has a sturdy built-in kickstand. This model’s metal kickstand blends in seamlessly with the back of the unit, and it can be easily flipped open to prop up your phone for video chatting or streaming (at either a landscape or portrait orientation). Unlike some kickstands we’ve used, this one feels robust and firmly fastened to the body of the unit.

the ESR 2G550 standing with the help of its kickstand

It’s compact and lightweight. Weighing just 7.8 ounces, or less than half a pound, it won’t add much bulk to a purse or backpack. And its sleek, slim shape makes it easy to slip into a pocket.

It has great battery life. With a capacity rating of 10,000 mAh, it has the potential to fully charge a phone thrice over. That’s more than enough battery life to keep most phones going throughout the day, even with moderate to heavy use.

It has a fast-charging USB-C PD port. Not only does this power bank support pass-through charging, but its 20 W USB-C PD port is capable of fast-charging most phones (or recharging the power bank itself) at top speed. When the port and wireless charging pad are both in use, their individual charging speeds will drop slightly, offering a maximum total output of 20 W.

It’s made by a reputable brand. We’ve had generally good experiences with ESR’s products and customer support in the past, and the company backs this model with a one-year warranty.

Flaws but not dealbreakers

  • With a maximum output of 10 W from its wireless charging pad, it’s not quite as powerful as some models we tested. But it’s still on the higher end of wireless charging speeds, and since MagSafe allows you to charge while in transit, you won’t have to loiter next to a wall outlet while waiting for your phone to top up.
  • It isn’t WPC-certified, but none of our picks are (and we didn’t notice any safety or performance issues in our testing).

Close up of the Anker 633

The Anker 633 Magnetic Battery (A1641) is a similarly great option if our top pick is unavailable, or if you want more USB charging ports. In addition to a MagSafe wireless charging pad and USB-C PD port, it gives you a USB-A port to charge a third device. And its power, capacity, and overall design are on par with that of our favorite model.

It works with Qi and/or MagSafe devices. Like our top pick, you can use this power bank to wirelessly charge any phone or other device with Qi and/or MagSafe capabilities. If your device supports the latter, it’ll attach firmly to the main surface of the power bank, so you can toss both in a bag to charge while you’re out and about.

Its kickstand is flimsier than our top pick’s, but still handy. Though not quite as robust as that of our top pick (it seems a bit more likely to snap off unexpectedly), the metal kickstand on this power bank will keep your phone propped up during a Netflix binge or video call.

It’s small and light. About the size of a standard deck of playing cards, this power bank fits easily in most pockets and even the mini-est of mini bags . It’s a hair lighter than our top pick (7.6 ounces) and has an equally slim, sleek shape.

It has plenty of power. This model’s MagSafe wireless charging pad can pass up to 7.5 W to compatible devices, which (though slower than our top pick, and somewhat sluggish compared with others we tested) is within our preferred range of wireless charging speeds. Plus, it offers even more power over USB (up to 20 W in or out of the USB-C PD port, and up to 18 W out of the USB-A port).

It can charge up to three devices at once. Since it supports pass-through charging, you can charge up to two devices (on the wireless charging pad and/or from the USB-A port) while recharging the power bank itself via USB-C. When charging three devices simultaneously, the available power is split between them, resulting in a combined maximum output of up to 18 W.

It’ll keep your phone charged throughout the day. Like our top pick, this model has a capacity rating of 10,000 mAh, which is enough to fully charge most phones up to three times. Of course, if you use your phone a lot, or if you’re charging multiple devices simultaneously, the power bank will need to be recharged more frequently.

It’s made by a brand we trust. We’ve recommended numerous Anker products over the years and have found the customer support to be fast and reliable. Plus, the company backs this model with a two-year warranty, giving you plenty of time to use it and ensure you don’t have a dud.

A close up of the Satechi Duo

If you regularly carry more than one device with wireless charging capabilities, get the Satechi Duo Wireless Charger Power Stand . It combines most of the features we prize in our other picks with the added versatility of our favorite multi-device wireless charging stands . It also has one of the most topple-proof phone stands of the power banks we tested, and it’s one of just a few with two wireless charging pads. But on the downside, it’s a few ounces heavier than most competitors and lacks MagSafe.

Its pop-up phone stand is the sturdiest we’ve tested. The entire top surface of the power bank, which contains the main wireless charging pad, can be folded upright into a phone stand, revealing a second wireless charging pad beneath it. The rest of the power bank forms a stable base for the propped-up phone, and four rubber dots on the bottom keep it from skidding across the tabletop.

It works with all Qi-compatible devices. Since it’s not MagSafe compatible, this power bank can’t be used for charging while on the go. However, once you get to your destination, it’s easy to set a device on top of the main Qi wireless charging pad. Three rubber dots help keep a phone or other device in place while it’s charging wirelessly, and when it’s propped up, a rubber ledge offers even more support.

The secondary charging pad, located in the base, has a grippy texture and shallow grooves around the edges to keep a small accessory—such as an Apple Watch or set of AirPods—from sliding out of place.

The Satechi Duo sitting with the kickstand erected.

It’s on the heavier side but still highly portable. Weighing 10.3 ounces, this model is slightly bulkier than our other picks, but its rounded edges and slim shape still make it relatively easy to stow in a bag.

It’s powerful and can charge up to three devices simultaneously. The Satechi Duo has two wireless charging pads (the main one supports up to 10 W charging speeds, and the other up to 5 W) as well as a USB-C PD port that can charge a third device or the power bank itself at up to 18 W. It has pass-through charging capabilities and a total maximum output of 20 W.

It has enough juice for several commutes or a weekend trip. Like our top pick, this model has a capacity rating of 10,000 mAh, which is enough to fully charge most phones up to three times. Of course, if you use your phone a lot, or if you’re charging multiple devices simultaneously, the power bank will need to be recharged more frequently.

It’s made by a brand we trust. Satechi is a reputable brand that has been around since 2005. This particular model is backed by a one-year warranty, and we’ve generally found the company’s customer support to be fast and reliable.

If our top pick is unavailable and you don’t mind a slightly pricier model with a flimsier kickstand: Get the Baseus PPCXZ10 . Like our top pick, it has a MagSafe wireless charging pad and USB-C PD in/out port with pass-through charging capabilities. Also like that model, it weighs less than half a pound (7.5 ounces) and has enough capacity (rated for 10,000 mAh) to charge most phones up to three times. Plus, its warranty is twice as long (two years).

However, the Baseus model’s combined maximum output (up to 15 W) falls short of what we saw with our top pick. It also costs more, at the time of this writing, and the kickstand (the size and shape of which are not unlike a toothpick) seems like it could easily snap off.

If you want something lighter and cheaper than our top pick that doubles as a wallet, and don’t mind that it has half the capacity and no kickstand: Get the Mophie Snap+ Juice Pack Mini Wallet . Like the ESR HaloLock, this power bank has a MagSafe wireless charging pad and USB-C PD in/out port with pass-through charging capabilities. It’s one of the lightest models we tested (4.9 ounces) and costs just $25 at this writing. It also has a fabric exterior that’s extra comfortable to hold and a small slot in the back to hold a few credit cards (its stretchy material keeps cards snugly in place, but I still wouldn’t trust it to hold cash or anything irreplaceable).

On the downside, it has half the capacity of our picks (rated for just 5,000 mAh), and it’s less powerful (it maxed out at 12 W in our testing). Plus, it lacks a kickstand.

If you prefer a power bank with a fabric exterior and tripod mount, and you don’t mind that it’s heavier and pricier than our top pick: Get the Mophie Snap+ Powerstation Stand . Much like our top pick, it has a rated capacity of 10,000 mAh, a combined max output of 20 W, a MagSafe wireless charging pad, a USB-C PD in/out port, pass-through charging capabilities, and a built-in kickstand. Plus, it adds a tripod connector and a comfy fabric exterior. However, it weighs more than the ESR model (9.3 ounces) and costs more ($70) at this writing.

If you want something lighter than our top pick with a super-sturdy kickstand, and don’t mind that it has half the capacity and costs a bit more : Get the Mophie Snap+ Juice Pack Mini . Weighing just 6.5 ounces, it has a MagSafe wireless charging pad with a maximum output of 15 W, and a USB-C port with up to 12 W output and up to 20 W input. Its aluminum kickstand is as tall and wide as the unit itself so it’s especially sturdy, and it has a small rubber lip on the bottom to make it even more skidproof. However, it costs a few bucks more than our top pick ($50 at this writing) and has a lower capacity (5,000 mAh, or enough to fully charge most smartphones at least once).

If you want a MagSafe power bank with more power than our upgrade pick , and you don’t mind that it’s heavier and pricier: Get the OtterBox 77-89452 . Like the Satechi Duo, this power bank has a rated capacity of 10,000 mAh, two wireless charging pads, a USB-C PD in/out port, pass-through charging capabilities, and a built-in kickstand. It’s also twice as powerful, with a combined maximum output of 40 W, and it adds the benefit of MagSafe on its wireless charging pads. Still, it’s one of the bulkiest and most expensive models we tested, weighing 12.2 ounces and costing $150 at this writing.

A slew of new products with Qi2 charging capabilities were announced in late 2023 and at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January 2024. Qi2 uses rings of magnets to ensure easy alignment between phone and charger, but unlike MagSafe it’s not exclusively compatible with Apple products. It also allows any compatible device to charge at up to 15 W, which is twice as fast as the original Qi specifications.

We plan to test the following models against our current picks this spring, along with other Qi2-compatible power banks that are likely to launch later in the year:

  • Anker MagGo Power Bank (6.6K) and Anker MagGo Power Bank (10K)
  • Belkin BoostCharge Pro Magnetic PowerBank
  • Hyper HyperJuice 10,000mAh Qi2 Power Bank
  • InfinaCore P3 Pro
  • Mophie Snap+ Powerstation Mini Stand

This is not a comprehensive list of models we’ve tested. We have removed discontinued models and those that no longer meet our criteria.

Qi chargers

The Anker PowerCore 10K Wireless costs about the same as our top pick and performed similarly in our testing, but it doesn’t have a kickstand, MagSafe compatibility, or any other noteworthy features.

The Einova Power Bar has more wireless charging pads, safety and performance certifications, and included accessories than any of our picks. But it also offers less capacity for the size and price compared with those models, it lacks MagSafe compatibility, and it doesn’t have a kickstand.

The Lenovo GO Wireless Power Bank lacks MagSafe compatibility, and it has a flawed built-in cable design that makes it nearly unbearable to use.

The OtterBox 78-52163 offers less power for the size and/or price compared with otherwise similar models, and it’s not MagSafe compatible.

The RapidX MyPort comes with a desktop dock, but it’s not as convenient or reliable as the built-in kickstands of most models we tested, and it’s not MagSafe compatible.

The STM PowerKick performed fine in our testing, but it lacks MagSafe compatibility, and its most noteworthy feature (a suction-cup attachment system) only works reliably with bare phones or some case materials.

The following models offer ample capacity for the size and price, but they’re not MagSafe compatible, and they lack a kickstand:

  • Mophie Powerstation Wireless XL with PD (fabric)
  • OtterBox 78-80642
  • OtterBox 78-80690

MagSafe chargers

The Anker 621 Magnetic Battery (A1610) , Anker 622 Magnetic Battery (A1611) , and Anker 622 Magnetic Battery (A1614) , are lighter and cheaper than our picks, but they have half the capacity and no additional features.

The Baseus PPCXW06 is lighter and cheaper than our picks, but it has a lower rated capacity and no additional features.

The Baseus PPCXM10T has a handy built-in cable, but it’s relatively short, and otherwise comparable models offer more power for the size and/or price.

The ESR HaloLock Power Bank with Wallet (2G513) offers less power for the size and/or price compared with similar models. Also, the kickstand seems more likely to snap off than others we tested (and if it does, you also lose the attached card holder).

The OtterBox Multi-Mount Power Bank with MagSafe (15W) 77-89445 comes with a desk stand, car vent mount, and wall charger. However, the power bank itself isn't exceptional, and we think most people would be better off buying each of these devices individually if they need them.

The Scosche GoBat MS 5K (PBQ5MS-SP) is lighter and cheaper than our picks, but it has half the capacity and no additional features.

The Zens Magnetic Dual Powerbank supports wireless charging to a second device, but it has a smaller battery capacity and is more expensive than otherwise comparable models.

The following models offer less battery life for the size and/or price compared with otherwise comparable models, and they lack any other standout traits or features:

  • Apple MagSafe Battery Pack
  • Belkin BPD001
  • Belkin BPD002
  • Belkin BPD004
  • Hyper HyperJuice Magnetic Wireless Battery Pack
  • Mophie Snap+ Juice Pack Mini
  • Mophie Powerstation 10K Stand with MagSafe
  • OtterBox 78-81175

Swap Your Old Travel Plugs for This Slim, Lightweight Universal Adaptor (With Its Own Battery)

snap wireless travel charger review

If you’ve ever found yourself lurking around an airport lounge looking for a power point – or in a contortion trying to reach the plug once you’ve located it – you’ve probably considered buying a portable charger for your travels. But many of the options on the market are clunky (read: heavy) and still require a tangle of cords to function.

Snap Wireless’s Power Pack Universal is the ultimate travel charger. Weighing just 276 grams (because every gram counts when you’re packing carry-on), it's a compact solution to charging on the go, as well as plugging in once you reach your destination.

Even though your phone might function fine on the daily, travel tends to suck the juice from our devices pretty quickly. From digital boarding passes to Google Maps and playlists that make long-haul flights a little bit more bearable, we’re increasingly reliant on our devices.

Gift them their favourite dining experience. The Broadsheet Gift Card can be used at thousands of restaurants around the country.

The Power Pack Universal is designed to streamline your travel tech by offering built-in lightning and USB-C cables to charge Apple and Android devices, as well as a wireless charging option for compatible Qi-enabled items – this includes any smartphone that’s iPhone 8 or later, Samsung Galaxy S6 or later, or Google Pixel 4 or later. The battery capacity is 10,000mAh @3.7V (37Wh), which translates to roughly two full charges for a smartphone, depending on the model.

Interchangeable power adaptors will keep you connected in North America, Japan, China, Hong Kong, the United Kingdom and Europe. There are also additional ports for USB-C and USB-A cords so you can leave power supplies for your laptop, tablet and even some electric toothbrushes at home and rely on the Power Pack Universal to charge multiple items at once.

High school friends Mark Johnston and Michael Wang founded Snap Wireless in 2017. The Adelaide brand now counts more than 170,000 people from 83 countries in its customer base and has reportedly sold more than 63,000 units of its Power Pack Universal in the past six months.

Travel tech hacks – like using an Apple Airtag to mitigate lost luggage and investing in accessories to make life on board a little more comfortable – are the answers to staying sane and avoiding airport anxiety on your next trip.

What’s Included

What’s Included in The Box 1x PowerBase Go 1x USB-C Cable 1x SnapMag Ring

Note:18W USB adapter required for power supply (not included)

What devices can I charge with the PowerBase Go? The PowerBase Go is designed to charge your Apple devices, with dedicated charging areas for your iPhone, AirPods and Apple Watch. The Apple Watch charger can only charge Apple watches, however the iPhone area and AirPods area can also charge other Qi enabled wireless devices, such as Galaxy Earbuds.

Do I need to install my own Apple Watch charging cable? No! The PowerBase Go has an Apple Watch charger built into it meaning you will not have to install your own charger or cable.

Do I need a quick charge plug? Yes, in order for the PowerBase Go to charge multiple devices you will need the minimum output required which is a 18W USB adaptor.

Do I need a SnapMag phone case? To have the best experience in terms of magnetic alignment, we suggest to use a SnapMag case. Devices that are MagSafe compatible without a case will still be able to Snap in magnetically. However if you use a case over your device that is not MagSafe compatible you will not feel the magnetic hold.

Can I charge two iPhones on the PowerBase Go? There is 1 dedicated phone charging area on the PowerBase Go. Although you can charge another mobile device on the AirPods side, please note that this side is limited to 5W max and therefore will not fast charge.

Can I charge Samsung watches or phones? To charge your Galaxy devices and Samsung watch, you will need to purchase the PowerBase Go for Samsung here.

Took a while to arrive but very good

My mum loved the product that arrived. Well worth the wait.

  • Apple Watch
  • Apple iPhone

I'm really happy with this charger. It charges quickly, I love that I can change it's configuration and it packs down nice and compact, and it looks great too. I only took away one star because of how bright the lights are either side of the cable port, a bit too bright to have in the bedroom at night.

So convenient

This has simplified my afternoons/evenings and saves time not plugging/unplugging the correct chords. I wish I’d done this earlier.

Love this for travel. Make sure you get the Apple ordered.

Very practical design. I’m using mainly as a bedside dock /alarm clock. The charger is able to hold its shape solidly. I’ll be bringing just this on my next travels, not needing multiple chargers again.

Great Business Hotel

I travel to Moscow very often and due to its superb location my first choice for the hotel is generally Novotel Moscow City. It is located right in the heart of the Moscow City business district next to the mall and the metro station. Rooms are clean and spacious enough for a few nights stay. Breakfast is rich and the food is good. More

  • Sleep Quality

The hotel is very nice, exceptionally clean, and well decorated. The interior design of the entire hotel is modern. The breakfast was very tasty and delicious and had a very good variety. There was a nice bar and a spa which we didn't use. We also had a dinner in hotel restaurant including a spaghetti - which we didn't enjoy (no meat apposed to what we have in Iran)- , and a grilled duck with rice which was fantastic. The downside of our stay was the coldness of the room. Although we visited the hotel during early September which is the start of fall season, the heating system didn't work!! and as we called the desk, they sent us an electric heater which barely heated itself. Somehow since the weather wasn't that cold, we managed to get used to the room temperature. The shower was also not so hot, just warm enough to prevent you from freezing. The biggest strength of the hotel was its location, in the heart of the Moscow city (a business district) which was very close to a big shopping mall and to a metro station which directly take you to red square (and nearly everywhere in Moscow). This also makes the room view not so good (some high raised sky scrapers, with cars and people rushing around).

Dear Meisam N! Thank you for your detailed review and for your kind words. It is such a pleasure to know that you enjoyed your stay with us! We also happy to know you benefited from our location. I will share your comment with our chef especially about spaghetti. May be we have to think about new suppliers of meat. I am sorry that your room experience did not meet your expectations; please allow me to express my sincerest apologies. We had indeed an issue with our hot water, sorry about that. Moscow city cut hot water and we had to rely only on our hotel boiler which is sometimes not enough on the peak times, this impact our AC system as well that cannot provide hot air in that case. We have already solved this issue. And we are going to install 3 more boilers to make sure that issue won’t occur again. Thank you so much for your reply again. We'll be glad to welcome you back in the nearest future! With best regards, Eugenia Solovieva Quality & Attitude Manager

Great hotel for a solo female was very safe, from picking me up from the airport (private hotel transfer). The hotel was great location for the metro and great access to shops and food locations.The breakfast was also great and a good selection.

Dear Petra1705! Thank you for your feedback and for your kind words! I am happy to know you enjoyed your stay and i am glad to know you benefited from our location and our breakfast. I will definitely share your comments with my colleagues. I am sure it will be great motivation for them. Thank you again for your review. We will be glad to welcome you very soon. With best regards, Eugenia Solovyeva Quality & Attitude Manager

I believe I said just about everything about this hotel in my previous reviews. Not much to add this time which is an achievement in itself (for the hotel, I mean). I was about to rate it 5 points this time but something held me back - it is a dry apple core right near a lift on the 8th floor where I resided. It was there for a few days and nobody took care of it. Another trifle worth mentioning is the fact this was my third stay within one year. It would be very nice if the hotel rewarded its loyal guests by an upgrade or at least a welcome drink. [Yes, I know about the loyalty program...don't tell me - I just cannot reach the required thresholds due to my travelling habits].

Dear Ariel857! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. It is such a pleasure to know that you enjoyed your stay with us! I would like to thank you for your loyalty and for choosing our hotel for your stay in Moscow. I have well noted your comment about apple core. And it is very important for us that you mentioned it. We have already made a training for our housekeeping team. Don't hesitate to contact me directly during your next stay. (84956648989 ext 3106) I will be happy to assist you with any of your requests. Thank you so much again for your review. Looking forward to welcoming you in the nearest future! With best regards, Eugenia Solovyeva Quality & Attitude Manager

This hotel is right in the middle of the busy business district. It has a great location near the Moscow river and a running train nearby. The hotel itself is clean and comfortable with modern furnishings. Breakfast in the morning was plentiful and delicious. Right next door to the hotel is a large mall with plenty of dining options. This is a great hotel for a business trip. It's not very near the main sights of Moscow so I wouldn't recommend staying here for a sightseeing trip.

Dear Rodrick S! We very much appreciate your comments regarding your stay at the Novotel Moscow City. It's really nice to hear you enjoyed your stay in our hotel. We are happy you appreciated our breakfast and business facilities. Thank you so much again for your kind and detailed review. We'll be glad to welcome you back in the nearest future!

Travel Itinerary For One Week in Moscow: The Best of Moscow!

I just got back from one week in Moscow. And, as you might have already guessed, it was a mind-boggling experience. It was not my first trip to the Russian capital. But I hardly ever got enough time to explore this sprawling city. Visiting places for business rarely leaves enough time for sightseeing. I think that if you’ve got one week in Russia, you can also consider splitting your time between its largest cities (i.e. Saint Petersburg ) to get the most out of your trip. Seven days will let you see the majority of the main sights and go beyond just scratching the surface. In this post, I’m going to share with you my idea of the perfect travel itinerary for one week in Moscow.

Moscow is perhaps both the business and cultural hub of Russia. There is a lot more to see here than just the Kremlin and Saint Basil’s Cathedral. Centuries-old churches with onion-shaped domes dotted around the city are in stark contrast with newly completed impressive skyscrapers of Moscow City dominating the skyline. I spent a lot of time thinking about my Moscow itinerary before I left. And this city lived up to all of my expectations.

7-day Moscow itinerary

Travel Itinerary For One Week in Moscow

Day 1 – red square and the kremlin.

Metro Station: Okhotny Ryad on Red Line.

No trip to Moscow would be complete without seeing its main attraction. The Red Square is just a stone’s throw away from several metro stations. It is home to some of the most impressive architectural masterpieces in the city. The first thing you’ll probably notice after entering it and passing vendors selling weird fur hats is the fairytale-like looking Saint Basil’s Cathedral. It was built to commemorate one of the major victories of Ivan the Terrible. I once spent 20 minutes gazing at it, trying to find the perfect angle to snap it. It was easier said than done because of the hordes of locals and tourists.

As you continue strolling around Red Square, there’s no way you can miss Gum. It was widely known as the main department store during the Soviet Era. Now this large (yet historic) shopping mall is filled with expensive boutiques, pricey eateries, etc. During my trip to Moscow, I was on a tight budget. So I only took a retro-style stroll in Gum to get a rare glimpse of a place where Soviet leaders used to grocery shop and buy their stuff. In case you want some modern shopping experience, head to the Okhotny Ryad Shopping Center with stores like New Yorker, Zara, and Adidas.

To continue this Moscow itinerary, next you may want to go inside the Kremlin walls. This is the center of Russian political power and the president’s official residence. If you’re planning to pay Kremlin a visit do your best to visit Ivan the Great Bell Tower as well. Go there as early as possible to avoid crowds and get an incredible bird’s-eye view. There are a couple of museums that are available during designated visiting hours. Make sure to book your ticket online and avoid lines.

Day 2 – Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the Tretyakov Gallery, and the Arbat Street

Metro Station: Kropotkinskaya on Red Line

As soon as you start creating a Moscow itinerary for your second day, you’ll discover that there are plenty of metro stations that are much closer to certain sites. Depending on your route, take a closer look at the metro map to pick the closest.

The white marble walls of Christ the Saviour Cathedral are awe-inspiring. As you approach this tallest Orthodox Christian church, you may notice the bronze sculptures, magnificent arches, and cupolas that were created to commemorate Russia’s victory against Napoleon.

How to Get a Decent Haircut in a Foreign Country

Unfortunately, the current Cathedral is a replica, since original was blown to bits in 1931 by the Soviet government. The new cathedral basically follows the original design, but they have added some new elements such as marble high reliefs.

Home to some precious collection of artworks, in Tretyakov Gallery you can find more than 150,000 of works spanning centuries of artistic endeavor. Originally a privately owned gallery, it now has become one of the largest museums in Russia. The Gallery is often considered essential to visit. But I have encountered a lot of locals who have never been there.

Famous for its souvenirs, musicians, and theaters, Arbat street is among the few in Moscow that were turned into pedestrian zones. Arbat street is usually very busy with tourists and locals alike. My local friend once called it the oldest street in Moscow dating back to 1493. It is a kilometer long walking street filled with fancy gift shops, small cozy restaurants, lots of cute cafes, and street artists. It is closed to any vehicular traffic, so you can easily stroll it with kids.

Day 3 – Moscow River Boat Ride, Poklonnaya Hill Victory Park, the Moscow City

Metro Station: Kievskaya and Park Pobedy on Dark Blue Line / Vystavochnaya on Light Blue Line

Voyaging along the Moscow River is definitely one of the best ways to catch a glimpse of the city and see the attractions from a bit different perspective. Depending on your Moscow itinerary, travel budget and the time of the year, there are various types of boats available. In the summer there is no shortage of boats, and you’ll be spoiled for choice.

exploring Moscow

Travel Itinerary for One Week in Beijing

If you find yourself in Moscow during the winter months, I’d recommend going with Radisson boat cruise. These are often more expensive (yet comfy). They offer refreshments like tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and, of course, alcoholic drinks. Prices may vary but mostly depend on your food and drink selection. Find their main pier near the opulent Ukraine hotel . The hotel is one of the “Seven Sisters”, so if you’re into the charm of Stalinist architecture don’t miss a chance to stay there.

The area near Poklonnaya Hill has the closest relation to the country’s recent past. The memorial complex was completed in the mid-1990s to commemorate the Victory and WW2 casualties. Also known as the Great Patriotic War Museum, activities here include indoor attractions while the grounds around host an open-air museum with old tanks and other vehicles used on the battlefield.

How I Planned My Trip to Vietnam

The hallmark of the memorial complex and the first thing you see as you exit metro is the statue of Nike mounted to its column. This is a very impressive Obelisk with a statue of Saint George slaying the dragon at its base.

Maybe not as impressive as Shanghai’s Oriental Pearl Tower , the skyscrapers of the Moscow City (otherwise known as Moscow International Business Center) are so drastically different from dull Soviet architecture. With 239 meters and 60 floors, the Empire Tower is the seventh highest building in the business district.

The observation deck occupies 56 floor from where you have some panoramic views of the city. I loved the view in the direction of Moscow State University and Luzhniki stadium as well to the other side with residential quarters. The entrance fee is pricey, but if you’re want to get a bird’s eye view, the skyscraper is one of the best places for doing just that.

Day 4 – VDNKh, Worker and Collective Farm Woman Monument, The Ostankino TV Tower

Metro Station: VDNKh on Orange Line

VDNKh is one of my favorite attractions in Moscow. The weird abbreviation actually stands for Russian vystavka dostizheniy narodnogo khozyaystva (Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy). With more than 200 buildings and 30 pavilions on the grounds, VDNKh serves as an open-air museum. You can easily spend a full day here since the park occupies a very large area.

Moscow sights

Places to Visit in Barcelona That Aren’t Beaches

First, there are pavilions that used to showcase different cultures the USSR was made of. Additionally, there is a number of shopping pavilions, as well as Moskvarium (an Oceanarium) that features a variety of marine species. VDNKh is a popular venue for events and fairs. There is always something going on, so I’d recommend checking their website if you want to see some particular exhibition.

A stone’s throw away from VDNKh there is a very distinctive 25-meters high monument. Originally built in 1937 for the world fair in Paris, the hulking figures of men and women holding a hammer and a sickle represent the Soviet idea of united workers and farmers. It doesn’t take much time to see the monument, but visiting it gives some idea of the Soviet Union’s grandiose aspirations.

I have a thing for tall buildings. So to continue my travel itinerary for one week in Moscow I decided to climb the fourth highest TV tower in the world. This iconic 540m tower is a fixture of the skyline. You can see it virtually from everywhere in Moscow, and this is where you can get the best panoramic views (yep, even better than Empire skyscraper).

top things to do in Moscow

Parts of the floor are made of tempered glass, so it can be quite scary to exit the elevator. But trust me, as you start observing buildings and cars below, you won’t want to leave. There is only a limited number of tickets per day, so you may want to book online. Insider tip: the first tour is cheaper, you can save up to $10 if go there early.

Day 5 – A Tour To Moscow Manor Houses

Metro Station: Kolomenskoye, Tsaritsyno on Dark Green Line / Kuskovo on Purple Line

I love visiting the manor houses and palaces in Moscow. These opulent buildings were generally built to house Russian aristocratic families and monarchs. Houses tend to be rather grand affairs with impressive architecture. And, depending on the whims of the owners, some form of a landscaped garden.

During the early part of the 20th century though, many of Russia’s aristocratic families (including the family of the last emperor) ended up being killed or moving abroad . Their manor houses were nationalized. Some time later (after the fall of the USSR) these were open to the public. It means that today a great many of Moscow’s finest manor houses and palaces are open for touring.

one week Moscow itinerary

20 Travel Tips I’ve Learned From Travelling The World

There are 20 manor houses scattered throughout the city and more than 25 in the area around. But not all of them easily accessible and exploring them often takes a lot of time. I’d recommend focusing on three most popular estates in Moscow that are some 30-minute metro ride away from Kremlin.

Sandwiched between the Moscow River and the Andropov Avenue, Kolomenskoye is a UNESCO site that became a public park in the 1920’s. Once a former royal estate, now it is one of the most tranquil parks in the city with gorgeous views. The Ascension Church, The White Column, and the grounds are a truly grand place to visit.

You could easily spend a full day here, exploring a traditional Russian village (that is, in fact, a market), picnicking by the river, enjoying the Eastern Orthodox church architecture, hiking the grounds as well as and wandering the park and gardens with wildflower meadows, apple orchards, and birch and maple groves. The estate museum showcases Russian nature at its finest year-round.

If my travel itinerary for one week in Moscow was a family tree, Tsaritsyno Park would probably be the crazy uncle that no-one talks about. It’s a large park in the south of the city of mind-boggling proportions, unbelievable in so many ways, and yet most travelers have never heard of it.

The palace was supposed to be a summer home for Empress Catherine the Great. But since the construction didn’t meet with her approval the palace was abandoned. Since the early 1990’s the palace, the pond, and the grounds have been undergoing renovations. The entire complex is now looking brighter and more elaborately decorated than at possibly any other time during its history. Like most parks in Moscow, you can visit Tsaritsyno free of charge, but there is a small fee if you want to visit the palace.

Moscow itinerary

How To Stop Procrastinating When Trip Planning

Last, but by no means least on my Moscow itinerary is Kuskovo Park . This is definitely an off-the-beaten-path place. While it is not easily accessible, you will be rewarded with a lack of crowds. This 18th-century summer country house of the Sheremetev family was one of the first summer country estates of the Russian nobility. And when you visit you’ll quickly realize why locals love this park.

Like many other estates, Kuskovo has just been renovated. So there are lovely French formal garden, a grotto, and the Dutch house to explore. Make sure to plan your itinerary well because the estate is some way from a metro station.

Day 6 – Explore the Golden Ring

Creating the Moscow itinerary may keep you busy for days with the seemingly endless amount of things to do. Visiting the so-called Golden Ring is like stepping back in time. Golden Ring is a “theme route” devised by promotion-minded journalist and writer Yuri Bychkov.

Having started in Moscow the route will take you through a number of historical cities. It now includes Suzdal, Vladimir, Kostroma, Yaroslavl and Sergiev Posad. All these awe-inspiring towns have their own smaller kremlins and feature dramatic churches with onion-shaped domes, tranquil residential areas, and other architectural landmarks.

Two Weeks In Thailand: The Perfect 14-Day Itinerary

I only visited two out of eight cities included on the route. It is a no-brainer that Sergiev Posad is the nearest and the easiest city to see on a day trip from Moscow. That being said, you can explore its main attractions in just one day. Located some 70 km north-east of the Russian capital, this tiny and overlooked town is home to Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius, UNESCO Site.

things to do in Moscow in seven days

Sergiev Posad is often described as being at the heart of Russian spiritual life. So it is uncommon to see the crowds of Russian pilgrims showing a deep reverence for their religion. If you’re traveling independently and using public transport, you can reach Sergiev Posad by bus (departs from VDNKh) or by suburban commuter train from Yaroslavskaya Railway Station (Bahnhof). It takes about one and a half hours to reach the town.

Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius is a great place to get a glimpse of filling and warming Russian lunch, specifically at the “ Gostevaya Izba ” restaurant. Try the duck breast, hearty potato and vegetables, and the awesome Napoleon cake.

Day 7 – Gorky Park, Izmailovo Kremlin, Patriarch’s Ponds

Metro Station: Park Kultury or Oktyabrskaya on Circle Line / Partizanskaya on Dark Blue Line / Pushkinskaya on Dark Green Line

Gorky Park is in the heart of Moscow. It offers many different types of outdoor activities, such as dancing, cycling, skateboarding, walking, jogging, and anything else you can do in a park. Named after Maxim Gorky, this sprawling and lovely park is where locals go on a picnic, relax and enjoy free yoga classes. It’s a popular place to bike around, and there is a Muzeon Art Park not far from here. A dynamic location with a younger vibe. There is also a pier, so you can take a cruise along the river too.

How to Save Money While Traveling in Europe

The Kremlin in Izmailovo is by no means like the one you can find near the Red Square. Originally built for decorative purposes, it now features the Vernissage flea market and a number of frequent fairs, exhibitions, and conferences. Every weekend, there’s a giant flea market in Izmailovo, where dozens of stalls sell Soviet propaganda crap, Russian nesting dolls, vinyl records, jewelry and just about any object you can imagine. Go early in the morning if you want to beat the crowds.

All the Bulgakov’s fans should pay a visit to Patriarch’s Ponds (yup, that is plural). With a lovely small city park and the only one (!) pond in the middle, the location is where the opening scene of Bulgakov’s novel Master and Margarita was set. The novel is centered around a visit by Devil to the atheistic Soviet Union is considered by many critics to be one of the best novels of the 20th century. I spent great two hours strolling the nearby streets and having lunch in the hipster cafe.

Conclusion and Recommendations

To conclude, Moscow is a safe city to visit. I have never had a problem with getting around and most locals are really friendly once they know you’re a foreigner. Moscow has undergone some serious reconstruction over the last few years. So you can expect some places to be completely different. I hope my one week Moscow itinerary was helpful! If you have less time, say 4 days or 5 days, I would cut out day 6 and day 7. You could save the Golden Ring for a separate trip entirely as there’s lots to see!

    Packability. For travel purposes, the PowerBase Go is on the chunkier side of the wireless charging size spectrum when folded. Don't get us wrong; it's not like it selfishly occupies the entirety of the Aer Slim Pouch we're using. But it's notably thicker than Apple's MagSafe Duo, even on a per-charging-pad basis.
