The BoostCharge Pro 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad with Qi2 and the BoostCharge Convertible Qi2 Wireless Pad to Stand will both feature the newest Qi wireless charging specification. With Qi2, Apple's iPhones that support the protocol will be able to charge at up to 15W without the need for Apple's specific MagSafe charging equipment.

Qi2 allows accessory makers to make more affordable wireless charging hardware because there is no need to license technology from Apple. Apple plans to support Qi2 in future iPhones, but it is not yet clear how the technology will work with existing iPhones. The 3-in-1 Wireless Charging Pad will be able to charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods, plus it is designed to be compact so that it can be used for traveling. The Wireless Pad to Stand is convertible and also easy to fold up and take on the go.

Belkin's BoostCharge Pro 140W 4-Port GaN Wall Charger has three USB-C ports and a USB-A port, allowing it to charge a MacBook Pro, ‌iPhone‌, and iPad at once with the power split between the ports.

Perfect timing with yesterday's report that the earlier models are all failing now! LOL

Planned obsolescence? Of course THEY are going to say no!

Remember, this is the same company that refused to push a serious security update to their WeMo plugs that could compromise your entire network that were just a couple years old at the time, and also the same company that there was a report about yesterday where their chargers just stop working. STOP BUYING BELKIN CRAP. We shouldn't be supporting bad companies like this.

What is this weird setup in the last photo where they have two M1 iMacs side by side but one keyboard/mouse? This is what happens when you put art directors in charge :)

Is it just me or is the application shown (AE?) on the monitors not running on the MacBook on the desk?
The screens on all of the photos look like extremely bad photoshop attempts, similar to the comp sci course my high school offered for grade 10 where one of the projects was to photoshop something
