At the ongoing Consumers Electronic Show (CES) 2018, being held in Las Vegas, Belkin unveiled a bunch of charging accessories, along with power banks, and cables. All these accessories will be available starting Spring/Summer 2018.

Among the announced accessories is Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging pad, which will support 10W output charge for Apple, Samsung and other Qi-enabled devices. It includes a power adapter, and is only 3mm thick. From the same Boost Up range, Belkin also launched a Wireless Charging Stand.

Also included in the Boost Up range is a 10W wireless charging car mount. As Belkin highlights, the car mounts will charge upon contact while maintaining full-device functionality including the use of WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth, LTE and other forms of data consumption. The mount will include an extra USB port for additional charging option.

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.
