With the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X, Apple has introduced fast-charging capabilities to these phones albeit with a catch, and that is it will require users to use a USB-C charger to charge their iPhones. For those who charge while driving and who also want fast charging, you’ll be pleased to learn that Belkin has recently announced a new solution for you.

The company has taken the wraps off a USB-C car charger that will offer users up to 36W of power to charge their devices. Given that this is USB-C, it means that it is more than capable of charging other devices as well, such as the new Pixel phones that charge via USB-C. Alternatively if you own a micro USB device or a Lightning device, you will need to find yourself an appropriate cable as Belkin will not be bundling a cable with it.

Instead for a price of $30, it will just come with the charger itself. As it stands Apple sells a USB-C to Lightning cable for $25, which means that to complete the package and to facilitate fast-charging in your car, you will have to fork out a total of $55, which we have to admit is rather pricey just for the convenience of being able to fast-charge on the go.
