Belkin’s $150 MagSafe charging stand can now fast charge the Apple Watch Series 7
Belkin’s back at it again with its funky multi-device charging stand, but this one now supports fast charging for the Apple Watch Series 7. The new BoostCharge Pro three-in-one charger offers 15W fast charging for your iPhone 12 or 13 and 5W charging for your AirPods or AirPods Pro.
Just as Apple claims its special magnetic fast-charging cable can charge your Series 7 Watch from 0 to 80 percent in 45 minutes, Belkin says its device can do the same. While the charging stand is compatible with all older Watch models, too, fast charging is only available for the Series 7 (because it’s the only one that has the feature).
Design-wise, there isn’t much of a change between this model and its predecessor. It still has a tree-like appearance with MagSafe chargers on the chrome “limbs” of the device and a Qi pad for your AirPods’ wireless charging case at the base. When your iPhone’s mounted on the charger, you can rotate it to use your device in landscape mode to watch videos while it charges.
This isn’t the first of Belkin’s devices to support fast charging for the Series 7 — last year, it showed off a three-in-one charging pad with similar specs and pricing. Both devices are priced at a steep $149.99, but at least now you can choose between a surfboard or tree.
The new BoostCharge Pro stand is available for preorder on Belkin’s site and will start shipping in July.
