  • Belkin Pocket Power 5,000mAh 10,000mAh Power Banks Launched in India

The first ever Lightning-charged power bank has finally arrived thanks to the folks at Belkin. Well, bulky battery cases or the good ol' cabled power banks, which are getting slimmer and more convenient by the day, as manufacturers are trying to free us from carrying more cables around.

Belkin stands ready to make life in Cupertino's walled garden easer with the inelegantly-named Boost Charge Power Bank 10K with Lightning Connector.

The need to use proprietary Lightning cables with your iPhone creates some complications, including for external batteries - you'll have to carry a separate cable just to top up your power pack. It's also the first Lightning-equipped battery that meets Apple's MiFi certification standards. Called the Boost Charge Power Bank Lightning 10K, the model has appeared on Belkin's website as a pre-order with a $59.99 United States dollars price tag; a shipping date isn't provided at this time.


If you're an iOS device owner like me, you probably have a number of Lightning cables floating around. It comes in black and white color options and is priced at $59.99.

One USB-A port charges at 1A and the other at 2.4A, making it suitable for tablets, as well. The new Boost Charge model is expected to start shipping in August.
