There is also a Dual Charging pad announced in the range, which essentially allows charging support for multiple device and accessories, simultaneously. A wireless charging system in the Boost Up range for publication application was also announced. The system includes a top-mount, flush-mount, or a sub-surface mount.
Also announced was Pocket Power USB-C 10K, which supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 enabled devices, and charges up to 80 percent in 35 minutes.
Finally among USB Power Delivery devices, Belkin announced Home Charger 27W, and a Dual Port Home Charger 27W. USB Power Delivery, or USB PD, is a charging protocol that uses high-speed USB-C connectors and cables. Smartphones, tablets, and laptops that are Power Delivery-enabled allow safe, faster charging and more power for larger devices, without the need of a separate power supply.
USB PD will charge your smartphone up to 70 percent faster than standard 5W charging. The USB Power Delivery chipset automatically detects the connected device, whether it’s a small phone or a large laptop. It then delivers the exact power required for fastest possible charging, but not too much which could damage circuitry.
