The Belkin BoostCharge works with the current iPhones:
– iPhone 14 Pro
– iPhone 14 Pro Max
– iPhone 14 Plus
– iPhone 14
It is a MagSafe wireless charger 15w full power not a 7.5w.
It is larger than the Apple MagSafe but sturdy and has a stand plus 6ft braided cable and it’s cheaper
I just bought this a week ago and I love it.
I am new to MagSafe and wireless charging as I had a trusty iPhone 8 Plus since launch and never used the QI charging.
The Belkin BoostCharge Pro is full power 15w with a sturdy stand, braided 6ft cable and cable organiser.
It is official MagSafe and you get the MagSafe animation on your iPhone.
The Belkin BoostCharge is official MagSafe backward compatible and works with:
– iPhone 13 Pro Max
– iPhone 13 Pro
– iPhone 13
– iPhone 12 Pro Max
– iPhone 12 Pro
– iPhone 12
– iPhone 12 Mini
If you are using a case, you need a MagSafe compatible case.

What is MagSafe?
What makes an electrical cord safer for your computer is called a power source safety device (PSED). A PSED uses magnetic forces to prevent electric current from flowing through a plugged in cable.
Originally, Apple designed their own power connector for iPhones. They called it “Power Connector with Universal Plug System.” The company let other companies use that patent free so they all used the same plug. But then Amazon bought those patents to develop their Power Supply With USB Port.
That is when third-party manufacturers really took off as people made cables out of whatever materials would work best! Now you can find almost any phone or iPad charger that uses a standard mag safe cord instead of the older iPhone style.
These are good because they do not require access to an outlet which makes them more portable. Some even have built in battery packs!
Why might someone want one of these types of chargers? Well some individuals cannot easily locate an electrical socket due to poor health or disability. Or maybe there was a natural disaster and cell phones now days are very powerful so having a regular wall adapter isn’t helpful.
Magsafe comes in two versions, either plugged into a power source or cable connected. When you have both of these pieces attached, then your device can be recharged.
This includes iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, and even Apple TVs! There are some models that only have one piece though, so make sure to check before buying new electronics.
There are several different types of cables that come with your magsafe adapter. Some are flat while others stick up slightly like a antennae. You want to make sure those are solid and do not break easily.
The PowerPort connects in parallel with one or more computer ports using two discrete components — a coil and a capacitor. When you connect your MacBook Pro to a charger, the port detects the presence of this component pair and then transfers current directly from the wall socket into the battery.
This process happens very quickly (referenced at 250-350 milliamps), so users don’t feel any lag while charging. The technology also helps protect your laptop by acting like a short circuit when there are signs of damage.
Because these components can be purchased individually, people have made their own alternative cords that use similar concepts. However, none have received wide spread recognition until now.
The most common reasons people buy this product are because it does not need a cable to work, and/or it is more efficient than using a normal USB cord.
There are two main parts to a mag safe adapter: The base and the top shell. You simply place your device on the base, pull up the top shell, and it connects wirelessly!
This seems pretty straightforward, but there are some rumors about how it works. Some say that the magnets in the bottom of the base stick to a magnet in the back of the device while others claim it uses resonance waves instead.
No matter what method they use, it works by creating an electric field around the device which then gets transferred onto a separate receiver surface. Once again, it doesn’t really matter what model it is, just make sure it has a strong enough bond for all types of devices.
