Fans were excited when Apple quietly revealed the new iPhone MagSafe Battery Pack last week. While previous MagSafe accessories haven't been up to scratch, this seemed like exactly what the tech was made for. But we've just been given our first real-world glimpse of the Battery Pack, and it isn't quite as pretty as Apple's glossy marketing images might suggest.

One Apple customer took to Reddit today after getting their hands on a MagSafe battery pack early. And if their photos are anything to go by, this thing is thick. Very thick. Maybe you shouldn't discount any of the best power banks just yet.
