Belkin, the connected things division within the newly merged Belkin International and Foxconn Interconnect Technology (FIT) entity, today launched availability of its most robust cable range yet, BOOST↑CHARGE made with DuraTek.
Available in three different lengths and three colours, the BOOST↑CHARGE made with DuraTek collection has been re-engineered to maximize cable durability and strength, while also featuring a convenient leather strap to keep your cables organized, tidy, and tangle-free.
The cables are reinforced with aramid, a super-strong material traditionally used to reinforce protective clothing and strengthen products such as tennis racquets and surfboards. The m material can flex without stretching, providing a protective structure for the wires inside.
The outer jacket of the cable is a hard-wearing double braided nylon that resists damage as well. And the cables offer improved strain relief: the point where the cable joins with the connector head is made flexible with TPE and longer than that found on other cables. This added length and flexibility absorbs stress and reinforces the juncture between the cable and connector head, preventing separation, says Belkin.
The collection includes a Lightning to USB-A cable and strap, USB-C to USB-C cable and strap, USB-C to USB-A cable and strap, and a USB-C cable with a Lightning connector and strap. They come in four, six, and 10-foot lengths, in black, white, or pink, and are compatible with USB Power Delivery for fast-charging USB-PC chargers. Pricing ranges from US$25 to US$35 for each cable and strap.
