Phones, tablets, wearables, and Bluetooth headphones—keeping all your devices charged up can be a hassle. Not only are there lots of electronics to keep topped up when you travel, but you have the added hassle of managing a jumble of adapters and cables or carrying around portable chargers.
Fortunately, there are a fairly wide range of charging options you can use to cut down on the clutter, like the five new wireless charging solutions Belkin just announced under its Boost Up brand.
The Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging Pad, Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand, and Boost Up Wireless Charging Car Mount support Apple, Samsung, and other Qi-enabled devices with 10W output charge, allowing for faster wireless charging. All three can charge through most cases up to 3mm thick, and according to Belkin are specially insulated and shielded so they don't interfere with device functionality like Bluetooth and LTE. The car mount also comes with an extra USB port to charge an additional device.
If you have many different devices or accessories that support wireless charging, Belkin is also offering a Boost Up Dual Wireless Charging Pad. Like the other options, it supports all Qi-enabled devices at 10W output, but it comes with two pads to support charging more devices at the same time. Most of this is for consumers, but businesses can also get the Wireless Charging System, allowing for wireless charging pads to be added in places like restaurants, hotels, and conference rooms.

For those who still haven't moved to the wire-free lifestyle, or need to have juice on the go without access to a plug point, Belkin has the Pocket Power USB-C. As the name indicates, it's a 10,000mAh battery that supports the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 standard, letting it juice up compatible devices to 80 percent in 35 minutes. That's similar to the Anker Powercore 10000 we reviewed earlier this year, so we'll be sure to take a look at how they match up.
Finally, Belkin has two USB adapters that support Power Delivery, a charging protocol that allows for high-speed fast charging for tablets, laptops, and other large devices, while still remaining safe for smaller phones by automatically detecting what the connected device is. The Home Charge 27W supports devices like ultrabooks, MacBooks, and tablets and the Dual Port Home Charger supports the same large devices, but has two ports along with a USB-C to USB-A cable for charging multiple devices. It supports a 27W output from the USB-C port and a 12W output from the USB-A port.
We don't have pricing yet, but most of the newly announced products will be available by summer 2018.
