Since Apple’s unveiling of its new MagSafe charging standard, officially approved wireless chargers using the standard have been few and far between. But Belkin is increasing those numbers with its new BoostCharge Pro MagSafe 2-in-1 wireless charger, which also offers a more tasty price tag of $ 99.95.
Like the BoostCharge Pro MagSafe 3-in-1 Wireless Charger, the BoostCharge Pro MagSafe 2-in-1 Wireless Charger can – as you may already guess – charge two products instead of three. Now, the futuristic charging tree will offer only a MagSafe cushion and a standard Qi charger for AirPods (or other devices that fit), and drop the Apple Watch charger found on the 3-in-1
And as a 3-in-1, the new BoostCharge Pro MagSafe 2-in-1 is an official, MFi-approved MagSafe device, which means it’s one of the few options out there to take advantage of MagSafe’s faster 15W wireless charger. And a one-third reduction in functionality comes with a similar reduction in price: the BoostCharge Pro MagSafe 2-in-1 costs $ 99.95, compared to the $ 149.95 that Belkin charges for its larger counterpart.
The BoostCharge Pro MagSafe 2-in-1 Wireless Charger is set to be released later this year in March or April, when it will be available from both Apple and Belkin websites.
Along with the new wireless charger, Belkin also announced its second set of wireless earbuds, Soundform Freedom True Wireless Earbuds. Where the original Soundform True Wireless Earbuds were a $ 59.99 budget option (with matching features), Belkin is betting higher with the Soundform Freedom buttons. The new knobs have better battery life (up to eight hours, with an additional 20 hours in the case), USB-C charging and improved isolation of background noise (although there is no active noise reduction).
In particular, the Soundform Freedom earbuds will also be one of the first third-party products to work with Apple’s Find My network (something Apple announced it would offer as an alternative last year). This means that – like Apple’s own AirPods – you will be able to use the Find My app on iPhone and Mac devices to find your missing headphones, using the same popular network of Apple products that the company’s own first-party devices can use. .
The Soundform Freedom earbuds also offer both Qi and USB-C charging, interchangeable earbuds, and are classified as IPX5 for sweat and splash resistance. Belkin has not yet announced prices, but they will be available for purchase sometime in March or April.
