Now that I am a Huawei Mate 20 Pro convert, I wanted to take full advantage of wireless charging. Looking around, Belkin seemed to have the product that fit my needs – Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand 10W. As the name implies, the QI charger is capable of charging at 10W. However, it should be noted that some phone models such as the Google Pixel 3 and iPhones will charge at a lower rate due to the limitations on those handsets.
To achieve the fastest charge rate possible on the Mate 20 Pro, I needed a 15W charger but as this was more for overnight charges on the bedside stand, 10W is plenty.
The charging stand is available in black or white and can support phones in either landscape or portrait orientation. The charging pads surface was more than sufficient for a phone the size of a Mate 20 Pro.
The charger has a soft LED built in to indicate correct alignment and charging of your phone. Pretty useful when the charge status from your device turns off. The light is also subtle enough to not bother you in a darkened room.
Another great feature was the foreign object detection. An LED alert will come on if there is something near the charging stand that is affecting the charging process.
Overall, the charging stand worked as expected. Not a lot can go wrong with installing or using these types of devices but for a piece of mind, Belkin does have a Belkin Connected Equipment Warranty. Check their website for the terms and conditions of the warranty.
