If you are using an Apple iPhone, Apple Watch and Apple AirPods Pro, the Belkin BoostCharge 3-in-1 Wireless Charger might be the charging dock you ever need.
Available in white and black (version reviewed), this 3-in-1 wireless charging dock has a rather simple one-piece design.
PRICE: $199 (available in Lazada and Shopee)
COMPATIBLE DEVICES: Apple iPhone 8 and above, Apple Watch Series 1 to 6, Apple Watch SE, Apple AirPods Pro, Apple AirPods 2
In fact, it looks like Belkin decided to place all the required charging pads and charging puck together in the most space-saving manner and voila! You get this charging dock.
It comes with a 7.5W wireless charging stand to charge your iPhone and a vertical magnetic charging puck for charging your Apple Watch. Sited closely behind the charging puck is a circular 5W wireless charging pad to charge your AirPods Pro or AirPods 2.
There’s no assembly required. All you need to do is to plug the power adapter’s cord to the charging dock, turn on the power switch and you are ready to charge your Apple devices.
The wireless charging stand puts the iPhone at an angle of 20 degrees. This makes it easy to look at when notifications appear on the iPhone’s display.
And being a 7.5W wireless charger, it charges the iPhone at the fastest possible speed. I found that my iPhone 12 Pro Max (with a MagSafe Case) being wirelessly charged without any issues. The wireless charging stand also worked with a Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra and a Huawei P40 Pro.
+ Able to charge iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods Pro simultaneously
+ Convenient one-piece design without need of assembly
– Not cheap
– Apple Watch charging puck too close to AirPods charging pad
The magnetic charging puck charges an Apple Watch in a landscape mode, or Nightstand Mode. So, you can place this dock at your bedside table to charge all three devices simultaneously while you sleep.
But the charging dock has a tiny LED light in front and at the side to indicated charging status. This might be a tad irritating for those who need complete darkness to sleep.
Not to mention, the some Apple Watch straps, especially closed-loop straps like braided solo loop, will get in the way of the AirPods charging pad due to its close proximity with the charging puck. So, you will need to be careful.
The charging dock is also not cheap at $199. That said, Apple’s own MagSafe Duo Charger costs the same but can only charge two devices.
Apart from these niggles, this wireless charging dock is able to seamlessly charge all three Apple devices efficiently at the same time without any problems.
It might be a tad pricey, but the Belkin BoostCharge 3-in-1 Wireless Charger will serve you well. Especially so if you are an Apple user with the triad of iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods Pro.
VALUE FOR MONEY: 7/10
