Belkin is a leading brand in technology accessories and is the number one third-party maker of wireless charging accessories. Offering a range of different sizes, variations and capabilities in wireless charging for different mobile devices. You can have one on your nightstand, on your desk or even in your car. Wireless charging will keep even your hardest working device charged all day long.

A faster and more convenient way to charge your devices that eliminates unsightly cable clutter, wireless charging is one of the hottest technologies right now but can also seem overwhelming when you are faced with so many options. Here are 3 tips to consider when purchasing your Belkin wireless charger.


To use wireless chargers, you first need to know whether your device is compatible, and this is as simple as confirming Qi certification. Qi is an established evolving wireless charging standard that is backed by over 200 leading companies including Apple, Philips and Belkin. Some standard Qi products include the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 8, Samsung Galaxy S8 and Samsung Galaxy Note8. Look for the logo Qi logo on your packaging to check compatibility with your Qi phone before you purchase your charger.


Wattage and speed are important when considering what charger to purchase, as specific phones are most efficiently charged by a particular wattage. For example, iPhones best charge at 7.5W, but this doesn’t mean that they won’t charge on a 10W charger. It’s about finding out what is the most efficient for your device. Furthermore, opting for a 15W charger might be a good purchase decision to future-proof, so that when you purchase your next new device your wireless charger can handle it.

Belkin wireless charging pads are fine-tuned to ensure your iPhone or Samsung device charges optimally. For example, the Belkin BOOST↑UP 7.5W Wireless Charging Pad has been specially designed for the iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 to minimise the amount of electromagnetic interference that other chargers aren’t engineered to handle. The significant amount of shielding, precision resistors, premium materials and components inside of the charging pad provide maximum charging efficiency. The Belkin BOOST↑UP Wireless Charger is optimised to deliver up to 7.5W fast charging speeds while maintaining full device functionality including use of WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, LTE and other forms of data consumption.

The new Boost Up Wireless Charging Pad 5W is the most affordable yet still fast and reliable way to charge your mobile device. It is a good starter charger if you were after something convenient and affordable.


Safety is always an important factor when it comes to purchasing any mobile accessory, so it’s important to look for Qi-certification on the packaging. If you don’t use a certified charger, you may experience issues such as:

  • Your device could become damaged
  • There may not be any foreign object detection
  • Your device may overheat, shut down or stop charging before it reaches 100%
  • You may not be able to use your device while its charging
  • The charger may be more prone to malfunction
  • An AC adaptor may not be included with the charger

As a full-member of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), Belkin works closely with the WPC to provide Qi-compatible chargers that are totally safe and exceptionally reliable. In addition, Belkin works closely with device manufacturers like Apple to ensure that wireless chargers meet all required and preferred standards, ensuring your safety and power needs are met.
