Belkin BoostCharge Hybrid Wall Charger 25W + Power Bank 5K + Travel Adapter Kit Review

According to Google, innovation is “a process by which a product, or a service is renewed and brought up to date by applying new processes, introducing new methods to create new value”. The creation of value is a defining characteristic of innovation. Now we know what innovation means. That’s the word that I thought of when I first saw the new Belkin BoostCharge Hybrid Wall Charger 25W + Power Bank 5K + Travel Adapter Kit. 

What is it?

Essentially it is a wall charger that has a built-in powerbank bundled with multiple travel adapters. Dare I say, this product is designed for people who love to travel. It’s such an innovative idea. It’s one of those things that you’d say “Why didn’t I think of that?”.

The built-in powerbank is capable of fast charging and has a 5,000 mAh battery. It comes in a pre-charged state where you can just use it out of the box. 

What’s in the box?

  • Hybrid Wall Charger 25W + Power Bank 5K
  • 3.3ft/1m USB-C to USB-C cable
  • Interchangeable regional power plugs 

Design & Functionality

The Belkin BoostCharge Hybrid weighs about 174 grams which is compact enough for your travel needs, and it has both USB-A and USB-C ports, along with a power button indicating battery capacity. The USB-A port is able to give 12W max output and the USB-C port can give 20W max ouput with 15W max input. It’s more than enough for most smartphones and tablets. 

The built-in overvoltage protection is a nifty feature that ensures your devices safety while connected to it. 

It comes with interchangeable plug adapters for various regions from Australia, Asia, Europe to USA.

As a wall charger, it is capable of delivering up to 25 watts of power, it efficiently charges smartphones and small gadgets. However, it may not adequately power high-demand laptops (like your Macbook for instance) that require more than 25 watts.

As a power bank, it provides 20 watts of power, suitable for charging devices on the go. Its 5,000 mAh battery capacity may offer one full charge for some phones.

Priced at AUD 119.95, it targets frequent international travellers. While offering versatility and convenience, its relative higher price point compared to similar products may become something to consider for potential buyers. But I must admit this product will always stay in my luggage wherever I go. 

In a nutshell

  • Hybrid portable charging technology 
  • Dual ports (1x USB-C and 1x USB-A) support two devices charging simultaneously 
  • 25W USB-C PD3.0 PPS wall charger for fast charging 
  • 20W power bank 5K for a quick power boost to your device

Should you buy one?

Yes, absolutely!

In conclusion, the Belkin BoostCharge Hybrid Wall Charger + Power Bank 5K with Travel Adapter Kit is a versatile device that combines a wall charger and a 5,000 mAh battery that is perfect for your travel needs. It saves you the hassle from bringing a separate travel adapter, a powerbank, and a charger.
