Belkin, one of the world’s leading consumer electronics accessories companies, has released the new BOOST CHARGE smart USB charging cable which can show users at a glance if their iPhone is fully charged.

The BOOST CHARGE cable uses a custom circuit board and proprietary firmware to communicate with the iPhone’s battery to display an amber light while still charging and a green light when charging is complete.

It is available in two versions – Lightning connector with USB-A and Lightning connector with USB-C.

The cables are compatible with all iPhones and is MFI-certified and can charge up to 12W using a wall or car charger.

Anyone with an iPhone 8 or later will also be able to charge from 0 to 50 per cent in 30 minutes when you combine the Belkin Smart LED cable with a PD (power delivery)-enabled USB-C charger.

The cables are manufactured with durable aircraft-grade aluminium overmold and double braided nylon exterior so they can handle daily use while maintaining their physical integrity.

“Belkin is a business built on delivering convenience and ease of use to consumers through high quality and well-designed innovations, and today’s launch of the BOOST CHARGE Smart Cable range brings this to life,” says Jamie Laing-Reece, Head of Product Management at Belkin ANZ.

“By adding the convenience of indicative lighting to an MFI-certified, highly durable cable that can be matched with a PD-enabled charger for fast charging, we continue to innovate in the cables category to add further convenience to the lives of our consumers.”

The cables are available in three colours – black, silver and grey.
