Boost Up Wireless Charging Dock for iPhone® and Apple Watch
Ever since I upgraded from my iPhone 7 Plus to my XS, I've been wanting a dock that could wirelessly charge my iPhone (since I have a waterproof case), charge my Apple Watch and iPad Pro as well. There were several options I was able to find online, but the reviews were mixed and the companies were one's I'd never heard of before.
That's when I finally found this all-in-one dock solution from Belkin. I trust Belkin products, I've never had one steer me wrong. Most of my third party accessories, from cables to docks to adapters are Belkin products.
The design of the dock is pretty straightforward - there's a vertical stand for your iPhone, and a built-in puck for your Apple Watch. On the rear of the dock, there's a standard USB-A out for a lightning cable or other charging cable to charge another device.
One aspect of the design that I really found thoughtful was how Belkin handled the power cable. It is designed to fit flush with the base of the dock and even includes a little rubber foot that is the same as the rubber feet on the bottom of the dock. This helps provide the dock with a sense of balance and surety, while making the cord melt away seamlessly with the base.
Given that this is designed to charge up to 3 devices at once, the power brick is huge. At first I was surprised to see how large it was, but then I also realized I was able to free up 3 outlets on my power strip because I didn't need the 2 5-w pucks for my watch and phone or the 12-w one for my iPad. The power brick and cord are proprietary - so if you lose it, you're out of luck.
I love this dock because it enables me to charge all my devices in a clean, minimalist design that it's blocky or require routing separate cables. The fact that it's also made by a reputable providers of accessories like Belkin can help you sleep better at night.
Lately I've been searching for a system to charge my iPhone Xr and Apple Watch 4 and help to consolidate all of my cubes, cables and accessories. Well, that search has finally ended with the Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Dock.
Belkin has always put out great products and this charging dock is no exception...featuring Qi wireless charging technology for iPhones (and any other Qi supported phone) and a connected Apple Watch charger in a single stylish dock that looks great on the nightstand or just about anywhere. The phone charger is 7.5W and the watch is 5.0W for quick and efficient charging. There's also an additional 5.0W USB-A port which I use for my iPad Pro 11".
The dock itself is really well built and feels solid, yet not to big or bulky. I was worried about the size of my Xr maybe knocking the stand over or tipping in the stand, but that is not the case. With the combination of the grippy base on the dock and sold build, even the Xr or Xs Max phones fit perfectly and don't budge the dock. The watch connection is the shape you'd expect and perfectly connects with the magnetic "click" when the watch is put on the charger. I use nightstand mode and have actually trashed my old alarm clock.
- Stylish looking and solidly built dock
- Single cord design cuts the clutter
- Fast charging
- Extra USB-A slot for additional charging options
- AC Adaptor is a bit large
Overall, if you are like me and have multiple Apples devices and want to cut the clutter, look no further. The Belkin Boost Up Wireless Charging Dock provides stylish looks and efficient charging for your iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X, Xs Max and Xr phones and Apple Watches.

This Belkin wireless charging dock features a Qi-compatible stand that holds your iPhone upright while charging as well as an Apple Watch charging puck beside it. While it may look like the bottom of your iPhone can slip and slide forward in the stand, this is no the case. There is a discreet bump at the base of the unit that prevents your iPhone from sliding forward.
The charging puck for the Apple Watch holds it upright horizontally which allows you to take advantage of "Nightstand mode" where the current time is displayed on the Apple Watch when it detects movement. I noticed that the Apple Watch does not rest on the stand; it is somewhat suspended above it. The magnet seems sufficient to hold the weight of the Apple Watch and any of the available bands attached to it.
The charging cord connects to the back. The wall wart is somewhat large, so you'll likely need to plug it into the bottom outlet to avoid blocking two outlets. Power strips might be trickier.
-= Features =-
On the back of the stand is a standard USB charging port so you can connect other devices to charge, like AirPods or another phone. Therefore, this dock can actually charge 3 devices: iPhone, Apple Watch and virtually any device that can be charged by USB.
-= Performance =-
I would say that 95% percent of the time, my iPhone charges fine with a slim TPU case on my phone. However, I've noticed occasions where my phone would start charging but then stop sometime later (the LED on the stand turned to an amber color). On another instance, my iPhone went into a loop of charging, not charging, charging, not charging, etc. My phone actually lost power in this case when I caught it happening about 20 minutes later. Therefore, I usually set my phone on the charger before I get ready for bed to ensure it is charging properly before I fall asleep. You do need to make sure your iPhone is sitting flat against the wireless charging pad and that it is centered in order for it to charge properly. The iPhone will not charge if sitting in landscape mode, so no movie watching before bed.
The Apple Watch, on the other hand, has worked properly and I haven't noticed any issues.
The USB charging port on the back fo the unit has a maximum output of 5V 1A. While this can charge an iPad, it does so slower than the stock iPad charger (which is 5V 2.4A). This port can also be used to charge other devices such as Bluetooth speakers on headphones, but you'll need to use your own charging cable as there is no additional cable included with the unit.
-= Summary =-
Overall , the Belkin F8J235 Charging Dock is a nice way to keep your nightstand tidy, but the angled iPhone charging stand -- while nice for viewing your phone -- can be somewhat finicky for charging your iPhone if it is not placed just right. The Apple Watch charger works fine and the additional USB port is appreciated, but a higher 5V 2A output would have been icing on the cake.
I like multi-purpose devices, in this case, the Belkin Boost Up Wireless charger that can charge 3 devices at once. On every photo it appears you can charge only 2 devices (iPhone X-series and the Apple Watch). But surprise! There is a USB-port where you can plug in another charger for another Apple device or Android one. After a few days using it here are my thoughts:
-Design. Very sleek and minimalist design. I guess that's where the trend is going for. The Matte White looks great and the charging docks are very sturdy. Underneath is the power cord slot that runs securely in position there. I was worried at first for my iPhone XR on how stable it would be on the dock. There is a half-semi-circle that cups the phone in there. I have used other docks where you run your charging cable underneath into a slot that is cut out in a rectangle for your specific phone model. Here, my phone sits perfectly in place as the magnet alone can keep it secured. The Apple Watch rests nicely there as well.
Clean Look: As stated above, since the two charging docks are already built into the device, you don't need to have 2 cords connected and making a mess.
-Third Charging station. As mentioned earlier, you can connect via usb at the back another charging cable. I connected my lightening cable to charge my iPad.
-Speed of charging. It charged my iPhone XR pretty fast. I was at 75% when I connected it to the dock and it was at 100% in about 7-8 minutes. That's pretty fast compared to the lightening cable.
-Temperature. As it does need to charge quickly, the back of my phone was hot. I'm always a little paranoid when third-party chargers get hot, and usually try to stay away from them.
-Apple Watch dock: You can only place the watch in one position and that is with the dial facing in the UP position. The dial will not fit in the down position because of the dial. I know that sounds petty, but I like the idea of options.
Overall I am really happy with this combo charger by Belkin. I will drain my phone and see how fast it charges, but am worried about how hot it will get. The design is great and I like how I don't have too many wires and cords all around it.
I was looking to simplify charging for my wife with her phone and watch, I have a similar setup for my Android and when I saw this product I figured it would be a great option.
I like how this charger has a spot for the watch, with a built in charger, there are other stands I have seen for the watch but require you to fit your own charger into the stand.
One thing to note, since this charger works for both the watch and the phone (with fast charging) the power plug is a bit larger than your current plug. I did also place my Android phone on this charger and it did support Fast Charging, so that was a good indication to me that the iPhone will be charging quicker than what comes with the phone.
This is a great charger, minimizes the cables ran to your nightstand or desk, while keeping your devices up right and visible at a glance. No more hunting for loose cables simply set your device down and forget. Just remember metallic cases will not work with wireless charging!
I love that this dock can charge all my devices in one spot without the cable clutter. I normally charge my iPhone X and apple watch on my nightstand. This dock eliminates a need for two different chargers and combines them into one.
• Modern and nonintrusive way of charging your devices
• Rests phone at a perfect viewing angle
• Charging indicator is only on the right side of the pad. What happens when your nightstand is on the left of the bed?
• Premium price for a charger
Other reviewers state that this charger creates a high pitch noise that makes it hard to sleep next to. I haven’t experienced this yet so YMMV.
I would recommend this Qi charging dock to anyone looking to clean up the cable clutter from their nightstand.
If your an apple fan this is a great wireless charging dock for your iphone and watch in one with an usb slot for your ipad too. Has a nice stylish design looks nice on my night stand. A few things to note. If you use a case on your phone it will need to be one that it compatible with wireless charging. Basically if your case is too thick it may not work on this wireless charging dock and if your watch has a cover on it you may have to remove it to use with this charger. As the watch doesn't lay on the charger it self and is hold up by its magnets to work properly. I my self don't have a cover on my watch and my phone case is made for wireless charging so all is good here. Very happy.
If you use this dock next to your bed like I do, the design let’s you use your phone without having to remove it from the dock while charging! This has been one of the things I’ve hated about the majority of wireless charging docks, you can’t really use it while charging like you can when using a cable.
The charge dock itself feels very premium, just like my other Belkin products. The charging indicator light is on the side so your phone hides it at night. Standing in portrait mode while charging, the phone feels very secure on the dock. It charges the phone @ 7.5w which I believe is the max allowed by Apple and the watch charges @ 5w. It charged my watch from dead to fully charged in a little over an hour. Your devices will get warm when charging, but that’s the way it is with all wireless chargers I’ve used. You know when purchasing a Belkin product you’re getting quality that matches the product it’s charging, and this dock is no different.
A:AnswerHi. The BOOST↑UP Wireless Charging Dock is engineered to work with most lightweight plastic cases up to 3mm (not compatible with metal cases).
If your case is thicker than 3mm, you may experience intermittent to no charging.
