Belkin has announced a new BOOST UP Wireless Charging Dock, enhanced for iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and Apple Watch Series 4, and other iPhones capable of wireless charging (iPhone 8/8 Plus/X).
BOOST UP is MFi-certified and can charge up to 7.5W for Qi-enabled devices and 5W/1A for Apple Watch, with support for Nightstand mode. The charger can also charge through phone cases up to 3mm thick, and includes a 45W AC adapter for instant setup.
This new BOOST UP includes the option to charge a third device with an additional USA-A port. The charger also includes a three-year warranty and will retail for $159 USD.
“The BOOST UP Wireless Charging Dock is highly engineered for function and designed for aesthetic and beauty,” said Oliver Seil, vice president of design at Belkin, in an issued statement to iPhone in Canada. “From the outside you see a beautiful piece of hardware, on the inside is a complex charging system that allows you to wirelessly charge your iPhone and Apple Watch at the same time. The beauty of Belkin products is that people don’t need to think about the complexity of the technology, the technology simply works and works beautifully.”
Belkin is also announcing an updated PowerHouse Charge Dock for Apple Watch + iPhone ($99 USD), enhanced for 2018 iPhone models, geared towards customers who prefer charging with a Lightning connector. A new red dial will raise and lower the Lightning connector.
These new Belkin chargers will be available in Canada. When updated Canadian pricing is available, we will update this post.
