Indulging into Apple’s ecosystem is great, but sometimes it also can be a bit messy. You need to handle and maintain a host of devices every day that you might use on a regular basis. And plugging each of them individually with wires could be a daunting task.
Belkin solves that problem with its Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand. If you haven’t learned yet, Belkin has a fantastic reputation when it comes to offering great accessories for Apple devices. This one isn’t any different.
The stand contains two built-in wireless chargers–one meant to charge your wireless charging-compatible iPhone (from iPhone 8 and up) and the other meant to charge your Apple watch. Moreover, it also features a USB-A power output that you can use to charge any other device; for example, an iPad.
Belkin boasts that it offers the fastest possible wireless charging speed for Qi-enabled iPhones at 7.5W and Apple Watch at 5W. That’s quite fast for a wireless charger.
Designwise, it’s quite attractive. Its elegance lies in its simplicity. However, the design does feel like it could have been a little sleeker. It comes in two colors–black and white. However, I suggest you consider the piece of furniture that you are ultimately going to rest this stand on before deciding on which color to choose.
One of its drawbacks is that it kind of hums a little while charging an iPhone wirelessly. It’s not that loud and you won’t even notice it most times.
Another drawback is that even though Belkin touts that its wireless charger on this stand is the fastest wireless charger, the additional USB-A output is not that powerful. It will work out for you just fine if you charge your AirPods using it. Albeit, charging an iPad using that port could mean you’ll have to wait for more than usual for it to complete charging.
