[CES 2018] While wireless charging isn’t exactly new technology, it seems that there appears to be an increase of interest in the tech following Apple’s announcement of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X in 2017, all of which support wireless charging. So much so that accessory maker Belkin has since unveiled a bunch of new wireless mobile chargers.
The company has announced five different wireless mobile chargers for a variety of different situations. First would be the Belkin Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging Pad, followed by the Wireless Charging Stand, the Wireless Charging Car Mount, the Dual Wireless Charging Pad, and the Wireless Charging System, the last of which has been designed more for commercial-grade applications, such as used in conference rooms, restaurants, hotels, hospitals, and more.
For the most part Belkin’s wireless charging systems all offer similar functionality, which is that they’re compatible with Qi devices, which means that brands such as Apple and Samsung will be compatible with them. They also offer 10W output charge and can also be used together with cases up to 3mm thick.
Belkin did not mention pricing for these chargers, but they are expected to be available in the Spring/Summer of 2018, depending on the particular model in question.
