Belkin intros tougher Boost Charge cables in USB-C, USB-A & Lightning versions
Foxconn-owned Belkin on Thursday introduced a new line of charging cables known as Boost Charge with DuraTek, including versions for USB-C, USB-A, and Lightning devices.
Originally revealed at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show, all of Belkin's new USB to Lightning cables are available in white or black and employ aramid, a material said to be used in products like surfboards and tennis racquets. The outer jacket of each cable uses double-braided nylon, while connector joints are deliberately flexible. A leather snap makes coiling or folding easier.
Options include USB-C-to-Lightning, USB-C-to-USB-C, USB-A-to-Lightning, and USB-C-to-USB-A. The USB-C-to-USB-C model has an additional pink color, and USB-A-to-Lightning buyers can choose between 4-, 6-, and 10-foot lengths.
Prices range from $24.99 to $34.99, the latter for 10-foot USB-A-to-Lightning cables.
Only some of the cables are available on Belkin's website as of Thursday. The entire run of new releases are slated to appear at Apple's online store and at retail, in conjunction with other sellers.
