I’ve seen a lot of travel gadgets in my time, and I’ve used a heck of a lot of them too – but this new BoostCharge Hybrid Wall Charger + Power Bank from Belkin is just pure genius. It’s your wall-charger to power up your phone or laptop whatever you need, but also, take it with you and it’s an on-the-go battery too.

It’s a simple idea really. Those little power bricks we all have plugged into the wall, and we take with us travelling – why not harness some of that power and store it right there in the brick – and take it with you when you need it! Boom.

In the box you get plugs for US/EU/UK and Australia, so it’s not just a great idea, it’s legit a ready to go Travel accessory and should be the biggest seller at Airports from this point forward.

Launching at JB HiFi (who are also in airports) and Belkin online for $119.95 it’s a fantastic value travel accessory and is just the start of a massive year for Belkin according to Jamie Laing-Reece, Head of Product Management and Belkin “In what will be a huge year of new product introductions for Belkin, our latest two-in-one hybrid charger stands tall as a solution that delivers the best in charging technology, delivered in a robust and beautiful design,”

Built-in is PD3.0 Programmable Power Supply technology which allows for safe high-speed charging for almost all USB and PD enabled devices, and in line with Belkin’s commitment to sustainability is made from 72% post-consumer recycled plastic and comes in plastic free packaging.

Included is a 1meter USB-C to USB-C cable, and the device itself has a single USB-C port and a single USB-A port to charge two devices at once.

Cracking product!
