Belkin's new Portable Wireless Charger Pad with MagSafe is Apple-certified, but comes with a hefty price premium versus Apple's own.

The Portable Wireless Charger Pad with MagSafe uses official MagSafe components to deliver up to 15W of wireless power to any supported iPhone. What differs it from Apple's is an integrated pop-up stand that will hold your iPhone as it charges.

Belkin is touting a longer cable than Apple as well. Apple's MagSafe charging puck is only a one-meter cable while Belkin's is double that, measuring a full two meters. The Belkin cable is reinforced with nylon for improved durability.

The longer, stronger cable and kickstand come at a price, however. Belkin's new Portable Wireless Charger Pad with MagSafe will set you back $59.99 if you'd like one. They are available to order now from Belkin's website in white or black.
