Belkin now 36 accessories for the new iPhone X series. They thoughtfully delivered a truckload over to GadgetGuy for testing. All work very well.
Rather than cover the entire range (click here) we have curated our ‘Best of Belkin for iPhone’ picks.
Wall chargers – iPhone X series
The iPhone X series shipped with a lousy 5V/1A charger (5A). Belkin offers some faster alternatives.
All the following will need a USB-C to Lightning cable for $39.95.
BOOST↑CHARGE 27W USB-C + 12W USB-A Home Charger $69.95 and it’s handy to have a USB-A port offering 5V/2.4A for everything else.
USB-C 45W Home Charger + USB-C to USB-C Cable $79.95. This is a 45W/3A Qualcomm Fast charge compatible that will fast charge the iPhone X series too.
USB-C Car Charger + Cable (USB Type-C) $69.95 offers 27W/3A charging and supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 5 volt / 9 volt / 12 volt USB-PD profiles.
iPhone X series
Belkin offers three grades
- ScreenForce Invisiglass Ultra $49.95 (flat). It uses Corning Accessory Glass 2 that is .29mm thin. It offers 3-5X improvement in scratch-resistance and 25% increase in drop performance.
- ScreenForce TemperedCurve $59.95. It uses Japanese made 9H, .33mm glass that wraps around the edges. A precision applicator is supplied to ensure a perfect fit. It is the best but
makesure you increase touch sensitivity in the iPhone settings.
- ScreenForce TemperedGlass $29.95 (flat). It offers scratch resistance but not drop protection.
Power Banks – iPhone X series
Now that we know the iPhone X battery capacities (iFixit Teardown here) we can recommend Belkin’s range of Pocket Power 5000, 10000 and 15,000 USB-A power banks at $39.95, $59.95 and $79.95 respectively. These use the USB-A to Lightning cable that comes with the iPhone or buy another MIXIT↑ Metallic Lightning to USB Cable for $29.95.
BOOST↑CHARGE Power Bank comes in 5,000 and 10,000 mAh and includes a Lightning Connector cable at $69.95 and $89.95 respectively.
Other cables – iPhone X series
Belkin 3.5 mm Audio Cable with Lightning Connector $39.95 converts the digital signal from the Lightning port to analogy 3.5mm to plug into car audio, amplified speaker etc.
