iPhone X and iPhone 8 owners that still haven’t tried wireless charging just got two great reasons from Belkin to take the plunge.

Belkin’s BoostUp wireless charger and wireless charging stand that debuted earlier this year at CES are finally available to purchase at a store near you.

The Belkin Boost Up is an induction pad (aka. “wireless” charger) that fits into the Boost Up Stand. You have to by them together, but when you combine them, they make one of the most impressive wireless charging units we’ve seen.

The new Boost Up Bold wireless charging pad is designed to deliver a 10W output for the fastest possible wireless charging. It supports iPhone, as well as Samsung and other Qi-compatible devices, and comes in a range of colors to match your decor.

Most charging pads lay horizontal, so you can just drop the phone onto them. But that’s about all you can do, because you can’t pick up the iPhone and use it like you can when you charge with a cable. With the Boost Up stand you can prop up your iPhone in the dock, allowing you to touch the screen and watch content while getting juiced up.

The Boost Up charging pad alone costs &59.99, while the Boost Up stand costs an extra $69.99. Supplies are available starting today online at at local retail stores like Best Buy.
