Belkin’s new 45W USB Type C charger will charge smartphones, tablets and laptops


Accessory maker Belkin has today announced new 45W USB Type C charger which they say is designed to charge ultrabooks, tablets and smartphones.

The Belkin 45W USB Type C charger is available to purchase from their website – and likely other retailers stocking Belkin products, for $89.95. It’s a tad more expensive than the Pixel charger available on the Google Store, but offers some versatility in terms of power with Belkin advising that it can charge all your gadgets, including the Galaxy S9, Google Pixel, BlackBerry KEYone, and they say it can even charge your Macbook Pro (2016).

Like any USB-C cable, or charger there’s always some trepidation from consumers, though Belkin are looking to assuage that with a $2,500 Connected Equipment Warranty, to cover any damage that you may think will occur.

The charger supplies 45W USB PD charger includes a 6-foot USB-C to USB-C cable, and can be ordered from Belkin Australia’s website and delivered to your door for an additional $6.99 Delivery fee.

As you pointed out, at least one of yours failed. If that fails badly it could fry my MacBook or Pixel. I think I’ll investigate a little more into the Belkin.

At least Belkin has the guarantee, it’s also not the 6-12 weeks away that AliExpress usually takes.
