Now that Apple has embraced wireless charging, Belkin has unveiled a slew of wireless chargers that seem to have been made for the iPhone, including fast chargers, a battery pack, and a car mount that doubles as a charger to boot.
These are the Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging Pad, Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand, Boost Up Wireless Charging Car Universal Mount, Boost Up Dual Wireless Charging Pad, Boost Up Wireless Charging System, Home Charger 27W, Dual Port Home Charger 27W, and Pocket Power USB-C 10K.
The Wireless Chargers
First off, the Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging Pad is as simple as it gets, which is reminiscent of the current Boost Up wireless charger but comes in a slimmer design with more color options to choose from.
Second, there's the Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand. It's basically an adjustable wireless charging stand that lets users place their phones on it in either portrait or landscape modes. Arguably the best part is that phones are positioned at an angle, and that means devices that use face-unlocking technology such as the iPhone X and Face ID or the Galaxy Note 8 can leverage on it.
Third, the Boost Up Wireless Charging Car Universal Mount is already pretty self-explanatory. It's a, well, car mount that can hold a phone and charge it at the same time.
Next up is the Boost Up Dual Wireless Charging Pad, which also has a straightforward name. It's more or less similar to the Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging Pad, but in this case, it comes with two pads to support two phones simultaneously.
Last but not least is the Boost Up Wireless Charging System, a commercial-grade wireless charger that's designed restaurants, offices, and more.
All of these are finetuned for the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone 8, providing up to 7.5W. They also work with Samsung phones and provide a rate of up to 9W, supporting any Qi-enabled devices up to 10W.
Belkin has yet to disclose the pricing for each one, but the Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging Pad and the Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand are slated for a release date sometime between spring and summer, while the rest are expected to roll out in summer.
Home Charger 27W, Dual Port Home Charger 27W
Moving on from the wireless chargers, the Home Charger 27W and the Dual Port Home Charger 27W are two USB-C wall chargers that Belkin is rolling out. Thanks to their specifications, they can juice up an iPhone X in quick-charging mode.
The main difference between them is that the latter has a secondary port — a 12W USB Type-A, to be exact.
Just like the others, they're scheduled to be available sometime in summer, but there's no word on their prices too.
Pocket Power USB-C 10K
The new battery pack coming to town is the Pocket Power USB-C 10k. Under the hood, there's a 10,000 mAh pack, and it sports USB Type-C and USB Type-A chargers.
It's expected to launch in spring, but pricing is still unknown as well.
