Belkin 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Dock with MagSafe 15W review: Nice StandBy

Belkin 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Dock

The Belkin 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Dock with MagSafe 15W is a pretty neat charging dock. I like how compact it is, and the soft-touch material is nice to the touch. Most importantly, it can hold your phone up at a max 70° angle, which is perfect for viewing the iPhone's StandBy mode.

Quick specs

  • Wirelessly charge iPhone up to 15W with MagSafe
  • Viewing angle from 0 to 70 degrees 
  • Non-slip weighted base 
  • 2-year warranty

Like most MagSafe devices, the Belkin 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Dock features up to 15W of charging. It's honestly not the fastest way to charge your phone, but again, this dock is meant to be on your bedside. Your iPhone will be fully charged by the time you wake up in the morning. If you need a quick charge, you should be using a fast wired charger like the Belkin BoostCharge Pro 140W.

Anyway, I like that I finally have a nice compact charger to put next to my bed. I tried the Belkin 3-in-1, but it's much bigger, and takes up quite a bit of horizontal air space. The Belkin 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Dock is much smaller. The charging pad flips upwards, or you can leave it flat to charge a Qi-compatible device that does not magnetically attach to the pad. The Apple Watch charger is located at the back. I like this placement since the Watch display won't clash with the StandBy mode screen on your iPhone.

Normally, you use the Belkin 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Dock to charge your phone and Apple Watch at the same time. But you can also charge your AirPods and iPhone together, or the AirPods and Apple Watch instead. I like the flexibility. One thing to note is that you may have to get a separate charger for this dock. My review unit doesn't come with one. The website lists a version with a charger, but I couldn't find it on any of the ecommerce platforms. That said, a 30W charger is all you need, so something like the Ugreen Nexode Robot GaN 30W will work fine.

At S$179, the Belkin 2-in-1 Wireless Charging Dock with MagSafe 15W is pretty pricey for its basic charging speed. But it's cute looking, and feels premium. The design and size will fit in most homes. It comes in either black or white, but I prefer the former. Get it from Shopee or Lazada.
