What it is: Belkin Boost Up wireless charging pad

Yesterday, we brought you the latest and greatest Apple product: the iPhone X. And no iPhone is complete without a way to keep it charged and running! Keeping up with the trend of wireless earbuds comes the Belkin Boost Up wireless charger.

The Boost Up is compatible with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus as well as the iPhone X, and it’s as effortless to use as it sounds. You simply set your iPhone down on to the charging pad, wait a little while and there you go—all charged! The Boost Up works with most phone cases up to 3mm thick and is faster than previous chargers, delivering up to 7.5W to your phone (as opposed to 5W). The charger also features an LED indicator light so you can easily tell when your phone is placed on the pad and charging, and an AC adaptor is included as well.

How much it costs: $59.95

Luckily, it costs a lot less to charge the iPhone X than it does to buy it! The Belkin Boost Up can be bought directly through the Apple store, retailing at $59.95. You can also find it on Amazon with free shipping for the same price—but beware, it is currently out of stock. The Belkin Boost Up is available through other major iPhone retailers such as Best Buy and Office Depot as well.

Who to buy it for: The iPhone 8 or iPhone X owner in your life

Most likely, you know someone who waited in line for the latest Apple phone release in September. If they don’t already have this charger, you need to snag it for them fast so they can go completely wireless and be completely cool! The rest of us will just have to watch with envy as we untangle our earbuds and charging cords.
