Belkin launches 10W BOOST↑UP Wireless Charging Stand and Pad in Australia

By

A 10W wireless charging pad and separate 10W wireless charging stand from Belkin has now arrived in Australia with fast charging benefits, but they're priced at a premium.

Showcased at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Belkin has a wide range of wireless charging solutions that "deliver universal wireless charging for Apple, Samsung and other Qi-enabled devices at optimal speed".

The company reminds us that it "debuted a range of home, in-car and commercial applications at this year’s CES, unveiling new wireless charging options that deliver more choices in colour and form factor for personalisation and device matching".

Receiving a CES 2018 award, Belkin's Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand 10W and the Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging Pad 10W both offer "efficient and fast wireless charging, and deliver optimal wireless charging speeds for iPhone X, iPhone 8/8Plus, Samsung, LG, Sony, and other Qi enabled devices".

Belkin says its stand promises "an original, thoughtful design making it easy to align your device for optimiSed wireless charging in either portrait or landscape mode", while "a soft LED light indicates when your Qi-enabled device has been correctly aligned on the pad and charging, giving users peace of mind to wake up to a full battery".

Priced at $99.95 for the pad, and $109.95 for the stand, they're a lot more expensive than much cheaper charging pads out there, but usually those other pads are 5W or 7.5W models, and while iPhones only charge at either the 5W or 7.5W speeds for now, the latest Samsung can charge at 10W, and future devices will surely charge at this faster new standard too.

So, what are the produce features of both the pad and stand?
