Belkin Boost Charge Pro 4-port GaN Charger review: Space saver

Belkin 4-port GaN Charger

The Belkin Boost Charge Pro 4-port GaN Charger is a boon for those with multiple smart devices. It can charge up to four devices at the same time via its USB-C and USB-A ports. Instead of having individual chargers for my laptop, smartphone, smartwatch and wireless earbuds, I now just need one. This frees up my power strip for other devices like my monitor or soundbar.

Quick specs

  • 2x USB-C and 2x USB-A ports
  • USB-PD 3.0 fast charging
  • Total output: 108W
  • 2-year warranty

Depending on the number of devices connected to its four ports (2x USB-C and 2x USB-A), the Belkin automatically adjusts the power output (up to 108W in total). The maximum power it delivers to a single device is 96W, which is sufficient for a USB-C notebook like the Apple MacBook Pro. Add a second USB-C device and it becomes 65W for the first USB-C port and 30W for the second USB-C port. Meanwhile, the two USB-A ports share up to 12W of power. To get the maximum 108W output, plug in a single laptop (96W) and either one or two USB-A devices (12W altogether). If you're connecting four devices, the total output is 107W (65W + 30W + 12W).

Belkin has helpfully printed the power delivered on the charger itself for easy reference. Given the power output disparity between the USB-C and USB-A ports, I recommend using the USB-A ports for slower devices like an older iPhone, a smartwatch or wireless headphones. The Belkin comes with a 2m power cord (no other cables included). This ample length means you can place it practically anywhere on your desk.

Like the Belkin Boost Charge GaN Wall Charger, the Boost Charge Pro uses the more efficient gallium nitride technology. As a result, it runs much cooler. In fact, the Belkin charger — with all four ports in use — felt cooler to the touch than some phones while they were being replenished using the latest super-fast chargers. Note that the charger does become uncomfortably warm after using it for some time. The Belkin is also relatively compact — another benefit of GaN tech — measuring just under 10cm at its longest edge.

At S$129, the Belkin Boost Charge Pro 4-port GaN Charger is slightly more expensive than the competition. However, Belkin does offer a longer-than-usual two-year warranty. It also comes with Belkin's connected equipment warranty of up to S$2,500. This means Belkin will pay up to S$2,500 for repairs or replacement if your device is damaged by power spikes or surges while using the charger. Get the Belkin charger now at Lazada and Shopee.
