Belkin Boost Up

Wire­less Charger de­signed for iPhones

T3 India - - Tested -

Belkin has been mak­ing wire­less charg­ers for quite some time but this is one of the first in­stances where we see a wire­less charger made for iPhones. The Belkin The Boost Up is sleek com­pared to other wire­less charg­ers and fea­tures an all-white de­sign, com­ple­ment­ing iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X’s clean de­sign. There’s an LED sta­tus in­di­ca­tor and even a rub­ber ring on the top to make the de­vice stay in its place while charg­ing.

All you need to use the Boost Up is to con­nect the ac­ces­sory to an AC socket and place the de­vice on top, iPhone will au­to­mat­i­cally de­tect the wire­less charger and start charg­ing. It can even charge de­vices with cases so you don’t have to re­move it every time

you want to charge.

Belkin claims the charger can charge up to 7.5W and in our test, we found the speed to be marginally faster than us­ing the stock 5W charger.

Boost Up uses the Qi stan­dard, which means any smart­phone sup­port­ing Qi can be used to charge. More­over, it also comes with a con­nected equip­ment war­ranty, a kind of in­sur­ance where Belkin will pay if some­thing hap­pens to the ac­ces­sory and the de­vice be­ing charged.

The ac­ces­sory is priced at `6,999, which we feel is steep and while it of­fers the con­ve­nience of charg­ing the phone wire­lessly, it does at a speed that is slightly bet­ter than a reg­u­lar charger.
