Belkin’s sleek 3-in-1 MagSafe pad charges up your iPhone 13, other Apple devices

Belkin has announced two new additions to its MagSafe charging lineup. The first is the Boost Charge Pro 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad with MagSafe for the iPhone 13 and other Apple devices. And the second is the Boost Charge Pro Portable Fast Charger for the Apple Watch Series 7. Both are part of Belkin’s Made for MagSafe collection.

We’ve received a review unit of the charging pad, and will be testing it to see if it’s worthy of adding to our roundup of the best iPhone MagSafe accessories of 2021 before the year is up. Another of Belkin’s chargers, a different 3-in-1 MagSafe charger, is already on the list, but it is made for slightly older models of Apple devices.

“Out of all the accessory makers in the world, to consistently be the one that engineers premium products designed for the newest Apple devices is a badge we wear with pride,” said Steve Malony, CEO of Belkin International. “We are excited to provide consumers with new, innovative products that leverage Apple’s newest fast-charging feature to get the most out of Apple Watch Series 7.”

Charging speeds

The Belkin charging pad offers up to 15 watts of charging power with MagSafe for much faster charging for the iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 models, Apple Watch Series 7, and Airpods. With the use of fast charging for the Apple Watch Series 7, it only takes about 45 minutes to charge your Apple Watch from 0% to 80%, which is 33% faster than the charging time on the Series 6. And you don’t have to worry about it prioritizing any one device as it can charge all three slots at once. Included with the charging pad is a 40-watt power adapter.


The 3-in-1 charging pad has increased charging speeds with iPhone 13 models, iPhone 12 models, Apple Watch Series 7, and AirPods. It even works with any MagSafe-compatible case you might already have on your phone. The charging pad contains a module that can adjust to any Apple Watch case size and hold it flat or vertical so you can have it next to your nightstand.

Pricing and availability

You can order your 3-in-1 charging pad today for $150 in either black or white color, available at Belkin or Apple in the U.S., Japan, Hong Kong, and China. It will become available worldwide in the following months. The pad comes with a two-year warranty.

Charging speeds

Like the charging pad, this portable fast charger is claimed to take the Apple Watch Series 7 from 0% to 80% in 45 minutes with fast charging. According to Belkin, it can charge the Series 7 about 33% faster than the Series 6. While charging, the adjustable module can display your Apple Watch in a flat or vertical position on your nightstand.


Those with an Apple Watch Series 7 will be able to take advantage of the fast charger, topping the Series 7 faster than the previous generation. An integrated 3.9-foot USB-C cable will be included, but it’s important to note that you will need a USB-C-compliant power adapter to use this charger.

Pricing and availability

The fast charger is out today for $60 in black or white at Belkin or Apple. Currently, it is only available in the U.S., Japan, Hong Kong, and China. However, it will be getting a worldwide release in the coming months.

In this guide, we'll walk you through how to do it, from determining whether your phone has the capacity for fast charging to the equipment that will cut down your charge time.
What is fast charging, and why can't my charger do it?
We've written a comprehensive guide to fast charging, but let's review it. Fast charging uses a newer USB technology called USB Power Delivery (USB PD). This technology is only available in USB-C connections, which can route power as well as data and are suitable for charging a variety of devices. It's a very flexible and efficient option that can optimize power management. By upgrading to a USB PD connection, you can achieve charging speeds far faster than Apple's older Lightning cable connections.

Watch someone use MagSafe to save their iPhone from a floorboard disaster
iPhone 12 Pro Max with MagSafe charger

Dropping an iPhone through the cracks of the floor sounds like a nightmare for anybody who owns one. David Cogen, founder of, lived this particular nightmare when he dropped his iPhone 14 Plus and it slipped beneath the floorboards during a night out at a bar. Luckily, MagSafe came to the rescue.

Cogen shared a video on Twitter on Thursday showing the exact moment he dropped his iPhone 14 Plus through the floorboard at a local bar the night before — and everyone who attempted to help him fish it out from underneath, including the bar manager, using various tools to no avail. The next day, he returned to the bar, slipped a MagSafe Duo charger through the crack of the floorboard, and successfully fished his phone back to the surface and his hand.

Every app and website that works with Passkeys on your iPhone/iPad
The App Library on the iPhone 14 Plus

Cybersecurity is always a top priority for Apple. When it released iOS 16 in September 2022 and iPadOS 16 the following month, it was no surprise that it included one of its latest innovations in cybersecurity technology: Passkeys.

Apple already implemented the Passkey system into the Safari app to make it easier for people to surf the web and prevent hackers from stealing passwords. Other companies have also been jumping on the bandwagon to update their apps and make them compatible with Passkey — including Kayak and, more recently, PayPal -- to ensure that users' personal and financial information doesn't get compromised.
What are Passkeys?
