One of the biggest complaints with the Apple iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus was the omission of the 3.5 mm headphone jack. Starting with these iPhones, Apple extended the headphone capabilities to the lightning port, with the help of an adapter. While it does the job well, the options of listening to music, while charging the phone is not available. To solve that problem, Belkin yesterday launched the 3.5 mm Audio + Charge RockStar adapter, for a price of Rs 4,999.
The new Belkin adapter comes with a lighting connector and offers both a 3.5 mm headphone jack and a lightning port at the bottom. This means users can plug-in a charger and a 3.5mm headphone jack simultaneously next to it. Not just that, it also allows data syncing through the lightning port and can even carries support for a microphone and remote controls through the headphone jack.
The device compatible with both iPhone and iPads, with its pass-through charging support of 2.4A. It also works with iPhone charging cases and battery packs. The Belkin 3.5mm Audio + Charge RockStar comes in a single white color and will be available in India through Amazon India and other offline stores for a price of Rs 4,999. Belkin is also offering a 2-year warranty on the product.
