Laser’s ChargeCore Power Bank Will Solve Your Smartwatch Recharge Problems

Published

on

I think the Apple Watch is a wonderful piece of technology. I absolutely love it. But like all portable tech, keeping it charged can be a challenge. It’s especially important now with the extra benefits you get from sleep tracking data.

There are many portable smartwatch chargers out there but the Laser ChargeCore Keyring Power Bank is just perfect for me. I stumbled across it while searching for something else on Laser’s website.

As I said on Sky News Weekend Edition with Tim Gilbert in the video above, it can be hard to lock down a time to recharge your watch if you’re out and about all day. A portable smartwatch charger is a good idea but only if the form factor means it’s easy to carry. Fortunately this keyring model takes care of that issue.

Only last week I took a flight to Melbourne for the F1 Grand Prix but my Apple Watch was flat. Thanks to the ChargeCore I was back up and running during the flight. It says on the box that it’s good for two to three full recharge cycles and I found that to be the case.

Inside the charger you’ll find a 1,000 mAh battery with a power output of 3 watts. The charger is recharged via USB-C cable. Please note – you can’t charge another device via this port.

Initially I thought it would be too big to travel with but I found it takes up about the same amount of space as my car key.

The great news is there’s a version for Galaxy Watch too. Both are priced at A$59.95.

Published

I’m a massive fan of Qi (pronounced CHEE) wireless charging, especially on the iPhone with Belkin chargers. Apple’s MagSafe charging is a step above the rest due its perfect alignment with magnets. But now everyone can get the benefits of magnetic alignment with Qi2.

WHAT IS Qi2?

Qi2 will deliver 15-watts (for now) to supported devices and unify the wireless charging industry under one global standard. Like the move to USB-C, Qi2, will mean one wireless charger for all devices. This includes Magnetic Power Profile technology which aligns devices and chargers perfectly for improved energy efficiency, faster charging, and easier usability. So Android users can enjoy a MagSafe like experience out of the box.

Using Qi2 standard, Belkin’s 3-in-1 wireless charger offers perfect alignment and reliable charging for Qi2-enabled devices at 15W, fast charging for Apple Watch Series 7 and later, and optimal charging for wireless earbuds. The adjustable hinge allows users to move the angle of the phone for optimal viewing while watching videos, reading articles or video chatting.
