Unlike other third-party manufacturers, Belkin has 100% control of the manufacturing process, allowing for more stringent quality control and compliance testing throughout the design and manufacturing process.

Belkin wireless chargers are constructed of premium materials like stainless steel, polycarbonate and silicone. Inside, Belkin continues to set impeccable standards with high-end components. These top-of-the-line resistors, capacitors and chipsets mean each Belkin wireless charger will last longer and be less likely to experience a malfunction.

Though every mobile device is different, some manufacturers don’t optimize their chargers to match device power and capabilities of each mobile device. This can lead to a slower or incomplete charge. Belkin’s BOOST↑UP™ wireless charging pads feature a variety of power outputs. The BOOST↑UP family also offers charging pads fine-tuned for iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8. Each Belkin wireless charging pad is designed to pair perfectly with a specific phone and is fully Qi certified to safely power up your device. Speed and safety, together at last!

If you’re not using a Belkin wireless charger, you could experience these issues:

  • Your device could become damaged
  • There may not be any foreign object detection
  • Your device may overheat, shut down or stop charging before it reaches 100%
  • You may not be able to use your device while charging
  • The charger may be more prone to malfunction
  • An AC adaptor may not be included with the charger


To ensure maximum functionality and safe operation, Belkin chargers include an LED light that alerts you to any foreign objects on or near the wireless charger that could affect charging. These LED lights also provide confirmation that your charger and phone are correctly aligned and that charging has begun. This feature is standard in the latest Belkin wireless chargers.

When it comes to wireless charging, certification could mean the difference between a quick power up and finding your device is only half charged after spending all night on the charging pad. Belkin meticulously maps out the efficiency and power of each charger to ensure maximum surface area for charging while allowing smartphones and other devices to power up through lightweight plastic cases, up to .3mm without sacrificing safety.

As a full-member of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), Belkin works closely with the WPC to provide Qi-compatible chargers that are totally safe and exceptionally reliable. In addition, Belkin works closely with device manufacturers like Apple to ensure that wireless chargers meet all required and preferred standards, ensuring your safety and power needs are met.


In addition to a robust warranty on each wireless charger, Belkin goes above and beyond to offer a Connected Equipment Warranty. This means that if a consumer is using the wireless charger correctly and their device is damaged by a power surge, Belkin will replace or repair the device.
