• New proprietary firmware allows cable to read iPhone’s battery and indicates when phone is charging and fully charged
  • Constructed from double-braided nylon for enhanced strength and increased durability

Tuggerah, Australia – March 3, 2021 – Belkin, a global consumer electronics leader, today announced the launch of its new BOOST CHARGE™ Smart Cable range. Featuring Belkin’s latest technology which allows you to see an iPhone’s charge status at a glance, the range will include the BOOST CHARGE™ Smart USB-A Cable with Lightning Connector and BOOST CHARGE™ Smart USB-C® Cable with Lightning Connector.

Belkin’s latest cable range uses a custom circuit board with proprietary firmware to communicate with the iPhone’s battery, displaying an amber light when charging and a green light when the device is at 100%. This allows consumers to easily see at quick glance whether their phone is fully charged or still charging, adding further convenience to their everyday lives.

Compatible with iPhones & MFi-certified, and featuring a universally compatible USB-A connector, users can charge up to 12W using a wall or car charger. Users can also fast charge an iPhone 8 or later from 0-50% in 30 minutes when combining the Smart LED Cable with a PD-enabled USB-C charger.

Manufactured with a durable aircraft-grade aluminium overmold and double-braided nylon exterior, the cables can withstand wear and tear while maintaining an elegant look and feel. The BOOST CHARGE™ Smart Cable range comes in three classic colours, to suit any style, including black, silver and grey.

Belkin is a business built on delivering convenience and ease of use to consumers through high quality and well designed innovations, and today’s launch of the BOOST CHARGE Smart Cable range brings this to life. By adding the convenience of indicative lighting to an MFi-certified, highly durable cable that can be matched with a PD-enabled charger for fast charging, we continue to innovate in the cables category to add further convenience to the lives of our consumers.” says Jamie Laing-Reece, Head of Product Management at Belkin ANZ.
