Belkin’s new Lightning-enabled power bank comes with Apple certification

Share:
Sure, there are plenty of power banks out there that can charge your iPhone. The ability to charge up via Lightening cable, on the other hand, is a pretty rare thing — and from the looks of it, the Boost Charge Power Bank is the first to do so with Apple’s blessing.
Belkin’s new portable charger sports a Lightning port in-between two standard USBs, so it can be charged up with the same cable you use for your iPhone/iPad. As someone who’s had some issues with Apple’s proprietary cables in the past, it’s something of a mixed bag — though as someone who also just came back from a week-long trip with a carry-on bag full of cables, there’s something to be said for only having to pack one.
The battery pack sports a 10,000mAh battery — which is nearly four times the size of what you get on the iPhone X/8 Plus. At $60, however, it ain’t cheap. As a quick pop over to Amazon demonstrates, you can get a lot more battery for a lot less. If Apple MFI certification and cable consolidation mean something to you, however, this is probably your best bet.

It’s up for pre-order now from Belkin’s site.
