Belkin today shared details on its first two accessories that are compatible with Apple's new MagSafe charging system. Both of the devices, a 3-in-1 charger for iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods, and a car vent mount, were briefly shown during the MagSafe portion of Apple's event yesterday.


Belkin's BOOST↑CHARGE PRO MagSafe 3-in-1 Wireless Charger includes a flat base with a 5-watt wireless charging spot for AirPods or AirPods Pro, and a chrome stand portion with two arms for charging an iPhone and an Apple Watch.


As with other MagSafe chargers, up to 15 watts of power can be delivered to an iPhone, twice what is supported through regular Qi charging. Belkin says the 3-in-1 charger will be available "winter 2020" for $149.99, and it will come in black and white versions.

For traveling in your car, Belkin is introducing MagSafe Car Vent PRO, which offers a slim profile and multiple orientations to easily snap your iPhone into place.


The Car Vent PRO is simply a mount and does not have any charging capabilities of its own, but Belkin says it offers convenient cable management in the back so your charging cable can be kept close at hand. As with the 3-in-1 desktop charger, the car mount will be available this winter, and it will be priced at $39.95.

Finally, Belkin has one non-MagSafe iPhone 12 accessory to announce, which is a set of UltraGlass screen protectors made of lithium aluminosilicate glass for impact and scratch resistance. There are both regular and privacy versions available, with the privacy versions limiting the viewability of the screen from the side.

Apple's new iPhone 12 models come with new Ceramic Shield displays, which are hardened with ceramic crystals that Apple says provide four times greater drop protection, but some users may still be interested in supplemental screen protection. Belkin's UltraGlass screen protectors will be launching this Friday through Apple and will be priced between $39.95 and $44.95.

They are too late I already have wireless chargers all throughout my house and car, cool concept with the magnets but I can get wireless chargers for $5-$10 each, I know only 7.5W but I haven't had a problem with charging speeds really....

I have a Magic Mouse and Powerbeats Pro, both of which lack “wireless” charging, so, I have a lightning cable always present on my desk anyways... I cycle through charging iPhone, PBP, mouse, etc. not really hoping on the “wireless” party bus atm and certainly not for $150 plus tax, this product plus VAT will end up costing around $200 total in my country. Certainly a luxury item.

Beautiful and pricey, but this is the market for that - it looks really nice.

The car mount is very good idea, no need to shoehorn a steel plate into the back of your iPhone case for that anymore - bit tragic they didn't do a charger there, but maybe a future product.

If only Apple included a way to fast charge your phone and plug it into a wall...
All this hoopla just to charge your freaking phone. Phones that are touted to last you all day 🤦🏽‍♂️

LOL, I love comedy. Since you're still flagged as a newbie maybe an explanation of the articles on this site is in order - its all about all Apple related products here, even wireless chargers...might seem crazy but alot of people use and buy them.

I refuse to by a stand with built in connectors now. I have a Belkin PowerHouse that is not compatible with any iPhone past the X (using the lightning connector) and will not charge any Apple Watch after the Series 3. I get technology moves, but the stand has both made for iPhone/Apple Watch Certification and was out of date in 2 years.

Most people use a wireless charger while
They sleep so just buy a cheap £10 one and doesn’t matter if it’s slower at night, £150 is a joke for a charger

I guess most people don't use wireless chargers at all and instead use the Lightning cable included in the box.
