Belkin's new BOOSTCHARGE TrueFreedom PRO Wireless Charger is a mat-style accessory rated to handle the demands of 2 Qi-compatible mobile devices thrown on it any old how. Therefore, it might solve the traditional problem of getting cable-less power to stay on without absolute precision in lining up contacts. Therefore, it may suit newer Android phones as well as iPhones up to the 11 series with ease.

Belkin claims to have produced the first ever product with a "Qi-certified multi-coil" design in the BOOSTCHARGE TrueFreedom PRO Wireless Charger. This means the mat is rated to accurately deliver charge to up to 2 compatible smartphones regardless of where they are placed on it.

In other words, its maker - which is now a Foxconn Interconnect Technology (FIT) subsidiary - ostensibly aims for the USP of the once keenly-awaited Apple AirPower with this new product.

This new BOOSTCHARGE variant is also directed at the high end of the wireless charging market, with a chrome border around a faux leather surface. Then again, it has a very standard speed of 10 watts (W), meaning that it could also support most Qi-enabled TWS earbud cases or other accessories.

Accordingly, this new TrueFreedom PRO Wireless Charger has also just missed out on full compatibility with the new iPhone 12 series. Then again, it could also match well with the 11 to 8 lines, as well as with many Android smartphones. The new BOOSTCHARGE mat is set at US$130 with certain retailers, with availability on belkin.com to follow shortly.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
