The BoostCharge Pro is one of the rare species of power banks that can charge the Apple Watch through inductive charging. You don’t have to plug a cable into the BoostCharge Pro’s USB-C port; you can just place the watch on the edge of the power bank. You can even charge a 2nd-generation AirPods Pro case this way. Not needing to use a cable is very convenient.

Its power capacity of 10,000 mAh is sufficient to charge an iPhone 15 twice, but also to provide an iPad or MacBook with energy for a short time. We measured the charging speed and found very good times. After every 30 minutes, the iPhone 15’s battery reached 55 percent and the Apple Watch 48 percent. The BoostCharge Pro’s 20W output limits how fast it can charge larger devices, such as an iPad Pro and MacBook Air–we measured a respectable 29 percent on the iPad Pro and 18 percent on the M1 MacBook Air.

The LED display doesn’t shine bring enough for certain situations.

Belkin includes a 12-inch (30 centimeter) USB-C charging cable with the BoostCharge Pro. A four-level LED display on the device that gives a rough estimation as to how much power is left was difficult to read in a bright environment. The BoostCharge Pro has the optimal size for a power bank that you always like to have with you; its curves and its soft-touch surface fits perfectly in the hand. The surface of the device does attract lint, however.

Should you buy the Belkin BoostCharge Pro?

The BoostCharge Pro is one of the faster power banks for charging the iPhone and Apple Watch we have tested so far. It holds a good amount of power, is easy to use, and is comfortable to carry. It’s one of the best power banks we’ve tested and easy to recommend.
