Belkin Launches New Collection of Durable Lightning, USB-A, and USB-C 'Boost Charge' Cables

Belkin today announced a new range of charging cables, called the Boost Charge made with DuraTek collection. The company said these cables were built with durability and strength in mind, and each one comes with a leather strap for organization.


There are four total cables in the collection: one Lightning to USB-A, one USB-C to USB-C, one USB-C to USB-A, and one USB-C to Lightning. Prices range from $24.99 to $34.99.

Each cable comes in two color options (white and black), while the USB-C to USB-C cable includes a pink color option. For the basic Lightning to USB-A cable, you can choose between 4ft, 6ft, and 10ft sizes.

The USB-C to Lightning cable supports fast charging on iPhone, which can charge up your iPhone 8 or later by up to 50 percent in 30 minutes. All the cables in the new range are touted as having a strengthened design that lasts 10 times longer than standard cables.

The new cables are available to purchase now on Belkin.com, but some of the cables haven't gone live for purchase yet. The Boost Charge cables will also be on Apple.com.

No thanks. That’s way too much for cables. Stick with Anker.

Anyone who thinks paying $35 for one of these cables is a good idea deserves to be ripped off.

I just picked up a lightly used 2018 11" iPad Pro early last week, I need to pick up a longer USB-C.

Heads to Amazon to look for Anker... Thanks MR commenters.

Compared to Anker, this isn’t competitive. No thanks.

does the name imply charge only and won't do full USB3.2 or T3 speeds for data transfer?

Anker does not make their own USB cords. There are a couple of manufacturers in China that OEM for them and often Belkin has them OEM for them as well. What the manufacturer makes for them and what goes inside the cables depends on what their engineers from both sides agree on. Anything over 3 feet long and performance numbers/levels drop. The longer the more expensive too. Often manufacturers use the shortest cords to quote performance specs or don’t tell you what length they used to get those numbers. A company like Belkin can not use the knock off chipset for usb cable to be MFi compliant with Apple. Because they use the real chipset they have to fork out 3 times more of what a USB cable without the Apple MFi would cost.


Anker is MFi certified and uses thicker cabling for longer cords. They save money on less marketing. And also the break point in high end cables isn’t the cable but the connector.

I bet my kids could destroy these in a minute as with most other cables. I'm thinking of hiring them out as product durability testers. I should just start a subscription to the "cable of the month" club.

These look nice - maybe a bit high in price.

Monoprice used to have this metal braided lightning cable - they don't seem to carry it anymore. That this is truly durable.


Those are pretty much banned by reputable brands after Target was forced to recall metal USB cables. People got shocked when they got tangled in wall outlet prongs.
