Belkin at CES debuted new wireless charging accessories, including the Belkin Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging Pad and the Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand, both of which are now available for purchase.

The Belkin Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging Pad is similar to the existing Belkin Boost Up Charging Pad, but it comes in a variety of colors that include pink, navy, black, and white.


It offers up to 10W output for fast charging on all Qi-enabled devices, and it supports the 7.5W charging necessary for fast wireless charging on the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

The Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand features the same circular design and the same colors as the Bold, but it features a frame that holds the iPhone in an upright position allowing the iPhone to be charged in landscape or portrait mode without the need for it to be flat on a table.


Like the Charging Pad, the Charging Stand supports the faster 7.5W wireless charging specification for the iPhone.

Belkin's Bold Wireless Charging Pad is priced at $60, while the Wireless Charging Stand is priced at $70. Both can be purchased today from the Belkin website or from Amazon.com (Pad) (Stand).

Yikes, $60? I bought 3 Samsung QI chargers for the same amount. Sure, they’re the “slower” 5W ones, but is 7.5W really worth triple the price? Mine work perfectly fine.

I’ll hold off until Apple releases AirPower in 2024.
I came here to write a joke about AirPower but this is better. I love how Belkin is releasing new versions of their charger and Apple still hasn't even shipped. They've been doing this with a lot of things lately.

Hopefully the new iPhone supports 10W wireless charging this year.

Man, the price on these makes the Anker Power Wave chargers at $50 (before sales and discounts) seem like a steal.
And Anker is a great product. Belkin isn’t a bad product any means, but I think Anker really has developed a name for it self with their cables and chargers as well, and I think the consumer knows that in comparison to paying something $20 or more the Belkin.

Anker is my go-to brand now for Apple accessories like cables, and chargers.

The Choetech ones work great for so much less. Belkin always seems to charge a premium but without the premium quality. I wonder why there are so few chargers that do 7.5, though?

"Hopefully the new iPhone supports 10W"...it probable will, and then they'll release AipPower. It will be capable of charging at 7.5W :confused: :cool:

Curious to know what the battery health implications are between a "cheap" 15 dollar one and a 70 dollar one...

Also, curious to know how the battery health holds up if one uses only wireless charging vs Lightning cable charging...

Yeah probably, but it would be some consolation if the reason they delayed AirPower was to provide support for faster charging rates on newer iPhone models or otherwise provide some sort of future proofing. If they release it with 10w now, then it might give away a new feature. However, I suppose they could add software support for it on newer iPhone models, but a teardown of the device will likely give away if it's 10w capable—at least I would think so?

Exactly. And their screen protectors for the X have been fantastic, too.

Apple just gave a sneak peak of their charger last year and said it will be available in 2018. They did not announce a release date. It will likely come in September with the new iPhones.

Apple is doing something different and not just sticking 3 coils in a pad and calling it AirPower. They are creating something new and want it to be part of the Qi standard, all this takes time.

I assume their sneakpeak was to put some pressure on Qi and because they assume that working with Qi meant there would be leaks.
