Apple Begins Selling Belkin’s 70W Dual USB-C Charger Among Other New Accessories, Making Its New 35W Option Look Pretty Silly
Apple has begun to sell a new range of Belkin accessories in its online store, but the most notable of them all is the new BOOST Charge Pro Dual USB-C Wall Charger — because it offers 70W of charging power at the same price as Apple’s new 35W option.
Apple made two almost identical 35W chargers available last week, right alongside the new M2-powered 13-inch MacBook Pro.
That charger splits the 35W across its two ports and sells for $60. The new Belkin option sells for the same price, but has 70W of power to hand out — allowing it to fast-charge an iPhone and power a MacBook with 50W at the same time.
The Belkin BOOST↑Charge Pro Dual USB-C Wall Charger is a great choice for powering up quickly between meetings or on the go. It provides fast charging for USB-C devices in a compact and portable design. Charge a MacBook and fast charge an iPhone 8 or later from 0–50% in 30 minutes simultaneously. It features Dual USB-C Ports that can charge a MacBook up to 50W and iOS device up to 20W at the same time.
That, essentially, means Apple’s chargers are already pretty pointless.
Other products now being sold via the Apple Store included an updated 3-in-1 wireless charging stand and more. Apple also seems to have added new Philips Hue and Eve HomeKit accessories to the mix, too.
