Belkin has launched its latest Boost Charge Smart Cable range with new technology that allows users to see an iPhone’s charge status at a glance.

The range offers two cables, the Boost Charge Smart USB-A cable with lightning connector for RRP $39.95 and Boost Charge Smart USB-C cable with lightning connector for RRP $44.95, available in black, silver, and grey.

Using a custom circuit board with proprietary firmware to communicate with the iPhone’s battery, the cables display an amber light when the device is charging and a green light when it is fully charged.

Compatible with iPhones and MFi-certified devices, a universally compatible USB-A connector allows users to charge up to 12W using a wall or car charger. Users can also fast charge an iPhone 8 or later from 0% to 50% in 30 minutes when combining the Smart LED Cable with a PD-enabled USB-C charger. 

Manufactured with a durable aircraft-grade aluminium overmold and double-braided nylon exterior, the cables have been designed to withstand wear and tear.

Belkin is a business built on delivering convenience and ease of use to consumers through high quality and well-designed innovations, Belkin Australia and New Zealand head of product management, Jamie Laing-Reece said.

“The launch of the Boost Charge Smart Cable range brings this to life. By adding the convenience of indicative lighting to an MFi-certified, highly durable cable that can be matched with a PD-enabled charger for fast charging, we continue to innovate in the cables category to add further convenience to the lives of our consumers,” she said.

Belkin’s Boost Charge Smart Cable range is now available at Belkin online, Big W and other major retailers.
