BOOST↑CHARGE USB-C Cable with Lightning Connector + Strap (made with DuraTek) Review
Summary: BOOST↑CHARGE USB-C Cable with Lightning Connector + Strap (made with DuraTek) is not only strong and fast but is also pure style!
Welcome to Belkin’s new family of fast, stylish and strong cables that are made from DuraTek and are 10-times stronger than standard cables. The BOOST↑CHARGE USB-C Cable with Lightning Connector + Strap is available in two colours (black/white) and retail from $39.95AUD (July 2019) and happen to be 33% longer than standard USB-C cables with a lightning connector, are MFi certified and come with a 5 Year Warranty.
More importantly, this new cable from Belkin supports fast-charging when paired with 18W or higher USB-C power adapters. Aesthetically it’s quite a nice looking cable thanks to its speckled design as well!
Strength is essential in a cable, so that they can endure the day to day challenges that we put them through. We’re passionate about continuing to innovate in this space, and with DuraTek Plus we have managed to produce our strongest cable yet,
– Stephanie Ogden, Managing Director, Belkin Australia.
Out of the box, the first thing that we noticed about BOOST↑CHARGE USB-C Cable with Lightning Connector + Strap (made with DuraTek) is how sturdy it is. This is great for travelling or just replacing your existing cables because the Duratek design feels very strong. According to Belkin, Duratek cables are laser-welded connectors that resist breakage while aramid fibres and a tightly woven jacket come together for a supremely-durable cable. Given that, it feels super sturdy!
Another impressive feature is that this cable is 1.2 metres in length that makes it considerably more useful than smaller cables, especially those that come with your smartphone. There is even a leather strap for cable management in order to keep things neat which is Belkin once again being innovative.
So if you need a new cable for your iPhone or iPad, the BOOST↑CHARGE USB-C Cable with Lightning Connector + Strap (made with DuraTek) is not only affordably priced ($39.95AUD) but is jam packed with useful and “almost” super heroic features.
