Ahead of this year's Consumer Electronics Show, which is set to kick off next week, popular accessory maker Belkin has announced several new wireless charging products designed for Apple's latest iPhones.

The Belkin Boost Up Bold Wireless Charging Pad is similar to the existing Belkin Boost Up Charging Pad available from Apple, but it comes in several different colors, like black, white, pink, and navy. It offers up to 10W output for fast charging on all Qi-enabled devices.

The Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Stand features the same circular design and the same colors as the Bold, but its charging surface is propped up by a frame that allows the iPhone to be charged while in landscape or portrait mode rather than when laying flat on a table. It works with all Qi-enabled devices and offers 10W output for fast wireless charging.

Belkin's Boost Up Wireless Car Charging Mount is designed to offer in-car wireless charging for Qi-compatible devices like the iPhone X, 8, and 8 Plus. It can be mounted on a dash or window, adjusted to fit different phone sizes, and it features an extra USB port for charging other devices. It offers 10W fast charging for all Qi-enabled devices.

The Boost Up Dual Wireless Charging Pad is designed to charge two Qi-enabled smartphones at once, side by side. Each charging pad offers 10W fast charging, and it works with all Qi-enabled devices.

For commercial applications, Belkin is introducing a Boost Up Wireless Charging System, which will be able to be installed in conference rooms, offices, user desktops, restaurants, retail stores, hotels, and more. Top-mount, flush-mount, and sub-surface mounting options are all available.

Pricing.. of course not.. Lets wait and see what Apple announces first. Good grief.
Or, and just work with me here, we could wait until next Tuesday and find out the minute details. I'm betting there will be plenty of info on offer during CES. Teasers like this one from Belkin and the ones from Samsung and LG are exactly that, teasers.

Why would one need to wait to see what Apple announces? 1. It's Qi wireless charging, not magic. 2. Apple already announced their product months ago - AirPower. What exactly are we supposed to wait on?

Can someone explain why this is better than a regular, lightning dock?

Oh yes, it’s CES time
I can probably tell you why it's different than a lightning dock. Better would be dependent on the user's preference wouldn't it? But I'm guessing you already knew that. Some people even like both.:eek:

Just gotta state the obvious... this is not wireless. What if the "wireless" on your phone of computer required your laptop to touch some device for network connectivity. Based on current Apple logic, my iPhone 1 dock counts as wireless charging. They are now using the Job's Reality Distortion Field for evil, instead of good.
Yes, actually it IS wireless.
People are really getting butthurt over semantics of this technology and play this game. The point in which the transmitter that is a pad on a desk, installed flush mount on a table or window mount -- and the receiver which is your phone, there are NO wires, hence wireless.
I get your point that sure we'd love to have what's called "power at a distance" that is meters away. This is technology that everyone really wants. But don't get upset with the marketing term of wireless when it's true to the word, just not to the extent of what you want.
Like saying "Tesla doesn't actually have autopilot, they need to be accurate and say it's lane-guidance with sensor assist speed controlled, crash avoidance with parking featured ..." Once the car can come pick me up at the bar when I'm drunk and take me home and carry me to bed, that's when they can say it's autopilot.
