Review: Belkin PowerHouse Charge Dock for Apple Watch & iPhone
As technology becomes increasingly smarter and more convenient, you may have noticed your home is filling up with charging cables required for each device. In most cases, these are distributed throughout your home for devices such as laptops, iPads, Bluetooth Speakers etc. I didn’t notice until I turned to my bedside table and realised I had nowhere to charge my new Apple Watch – oh dear! I did a quick count and determined I had 3 chargers by my bed not including my lamp. That's crazy! Choosing not to have my bedside table covered in cords, I decided to explore my options and I quickly discovered the Belkin PowerHouse Charge Dock for Apple Watch & iPhone. Let me begin by saying I’ve had this product for about six months and it wasn’t until I travelled overseas that I realised how convenient it actually was. Well, that’s not entirely true because I instantly replaced two apple chargers with one AC cable.
The stylish 2-in-1 Belkin PowerHouse Charge Dock simultaneously charges your Apple watch and iPhone. It features a built-in Magnetic Charging Module for the Apple watch, which aligns magnetically and begins charging instantly. The best thing about this is the dock elevates the watch meaning the band is suspended allowing perfect contact with the charging base. For anyone who owns an apple watch, I’m sure you’ve had times you thought your watch was charging only to find the watch has separated from the charging base due to interference from the band. This has happened to me a few time and it’s super annoying; however, the dock eliminates this from happening. Another benefit of having the watch suspended means you’re less likely to scratch your watch.
The charge dock also features a built-in VersaCase™ Lightning connector for your iPhone that can be adjusted so you don’t need to remove your phone case. The dock also supports the phone in a standing position meaning during the night you can turn to your phone and quickly see any notifications or tap for the time without picking it up. I also find this handy for charging additional Apple devices such as my iPad and most importantly my Apple TV remote – there’s nothing more annoying than trying to watch Netflix only discover the remote is flat!
Overall the Belkin PowerHouse Charge Dock is incredibly easy to set up and operate, creates space on your power board and reduces the number of chargers required by your bedside.
