Belkin announced a bunch of new USB-C cables and products at CES and they’re coming to Australia

Untitled
CES is a great big hive of new technology, but it’s also the showcase for new cables and the little accessories that help you to use the new technology on the market. Belkin has launched a range of new cables, adapters and accessories that connect to the new USB-C connector that we’ve seen launch on a few phones so far and will launch on many more this year.

USB-C is of course reversible, there’s also other bonuses as well which Duncan has already looked at, but until recently finding USB-C cables that weren’t from Apple or even Google in retail has been hard. Belkin has a wide reach when it comes to retail in Australia with great quality products and we should be seeing these in-store very soon. So, what has Belkin got to offer?

On their new range of USB-C cables and accessories, Aaron Shooter, Business Unit Manager, Synergy at Belkin ANZ said

USB-C eliminates the need for countless cables, making everyday functions simpler and easier. Our new range will help consumers adapt to this new technology, letting them connect, charge and transfer data rapidly and safely. As industry leaders, we have also developed a devoted USB-C resource center where consumers can learn more about the benefits of USB-C, and find the right cable for their devices, to ensure the transition is as flawless as possible.

The new range should be heading into stores now, with a full rollout expected to be completed by mid-year.

I’ve had the Belkin F2CU032bt06 cable since November. I ordered it through the Belkin Australian website.

What’s ‘NEW’ is that Belkin makes high quality cables AND they’re available in-store across big box retailers in Australia. What you have is most likely some garbage cables from some no-name manufacturer you found on AliBaba or eBay that you’ll claim are superior to every form of cable ever released.

Belkin releasing cables is big news, because it means it’s easy to get access to them, easy as in walk out to a shop and grab one when you need it.
