The new USB-C Boost Charge Pro 60W charger joins Belkin's lineup of other gallium nitride (GaN) power adapter options. GaN technology has become widespread over the last few years and allows for much smaller power adapters that take up less space than the standard silicon power adapters.

According to Belkin, the Boost Charge Pro 60W is 53 percent smaller than standard 60W laptop chargers and is able to work with USB-C Apple devices including MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, and iPad Pro. It can also fast charge an iPhone (including the new ‌iPhone‌ 12 models) when paired with a USB-C to Lightning cable.

The compact Boost Charge Pro 60W is equipped with overcurrent and overvoltage protection to keep devices safe while charging.

Belkin is selling the Boost Charge Pro USB-C PD GaN Wall Charger 60W for $50, and it can be ordered from the Belkin website.

What... really?

$50 for a tiny charger that is powerful enough for a laptop? That's too high?

I wouldn't pay that for a phone charger... but this is a little more than that.

Spigen’s PowerArc, although only 20W, looks much better imo, and cheaper alternative, if it’s meant to charge only phones/tablets.
Well obviously a charger that is lesser and doesn’t charge laptops will be cheaper than a more powerful one that can also charge laptops.

The iPhone can only accept a set maximum amount of current and this 60 watt charger can provide way more power than any iPhone can accept. So this charger is overkill and unnecessary for just charging iPhones. No speed benefit over using a 20 watt charger.

Edit:
Just found this video clip on YouTube.
Speed difference charging an iPhone with 100 chargers vs 1

I have the 65w version of this. Works great for my phone, iPad and work MBP. It’s pretty compact as well.
