The only thing I don’t like about Belkin’s 3-in-1 MagSafe wireless charger is its name. And, until now, its availability and price.
Those last two problems just disappeared, however briefly, as the hard-to-find 15-watt MagSafe charger is back in stock on Belkin’s website — and with a sweet 25% Black Friday discount to boot! Just be sure to use the promo code when you check out.
The best 3-in-1 MagSafe charger
What’s not to like about the name, you might ask? Well, the official name of the product is “BOOST↑CHARGE™ PRO 3-in-1 Wireless Charger with MagSafe 15W.” Just look at all those capital letters, not to mention the upward-pointing arrow and the trademark symbol.
Luckily, we don’t do that stuff at Cult of Mac, so I can just call this $149 stunner the best triple-threat MagSafe charger you can buy.
You can find lots of other three-way chargers these days with magnets to hold your iPhone 12 or 13 in place. But note that this one delivers 15 watts of power. That’s the max you can get currently, and it means your iPhone will charge more quickly than with a less-powerful model.
Fast charging for iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods
The burly magnetic pad on the Belkin 3-in-1 holds your MagSafe-endowed iPhone in place quite securely. You can spin it around from vertical to horizontal without any worries, making it perfect for watching FaceTime calls or watching videos while charging.
The Apple Watch and AirPods charging stations prove similarly flawless. (A white LED gives you peace of mind that your AirPods are aligned perfectly in their wireless charging case; an amber one tells you when you need to adjust them.) And the whole package comes together in a minimalist design that just works.
The charger’s shiny stainless steel stem looks gorgeous and feels incredibly sturdy. And its white base looks clean and sleek. (The black model is currently sold out on Belkin’s website — the company can’t keep these things in stock.)
I know it’s a great charger, because I told my wife she could try it. Big mistake. Now it’s permanently ensconced on her nightstand and she can’t stop raving about it.
Hey, that’s what Black Friday sales are for …
