Belkin boldly brings bounty of wireless chargers to CES 2018 Featured

Whether you have a compatible iPhone, Samsung or other Qi-enabled wireless charging device, Belkin's bounty of new wireless chargers, to be unveiled at CES, should bob up on your radar. 

Belkin's new range of universal wireless charging solutions for the home, car or in commercial scenarios will be birthed at CES 2018, and are set to be available a little later this year, with no specific timeframe offered as yet. 

The range is part of Belkin's 2018 portfolio of mobile power, with the company proudly boasting that it "reigns as the number one 3rd party brand in mobile power category at CES 2018".

Being showcased at the annual Consumer Electronics Show, the company's wireless charging solutions "deliver universal wireless charging for Apple, Samsung and other Qi-enabled devices at optimal speed, while delivering more choices in colour and form factor for personalisation and device matching".

Steve Malony, general manager and vice-president of Belkin, said: "This year we are taking our extensive knowledge of consumer trends, expected changes in charging behavior, and experience building the best wireless charging and mobile power products to the next level.

“From our vantage point of being first and best to market, we expect to see a race to deliver wireless charging products given the spike in adoption in 2017. Our focus remains on delivering a cohesive, seamless, convenient and optimal mobile power experience for the consumer – whether they are at home, at work, or on the go.

"We are confident that our continued focus on people-inspired design, user testing and prototyping processes, strict adherence to compliance and safety, manufacturing, and warranty programs will keep us in the number one position to provide the highest quality products to consumers around the world.”

While no pricing or availability has been released for Australia, as a key and early adopting market for Belkin globally, the company assure us that Australia will be "one of the first countries to receive stock a little later in the year".

So, what are the new devices? They're listed below, and while I've been provided links to all but one of the products below at Belkin's website, the links aren't live as yet and bring up a page not found error, even though the media release has passed its embargo date. But I'm sure if you try again over the next week or so, as the products are demonstrated at CES, the links should go live.
