Wireless charging has increasingly become a standard feature when it comes to flagship smart phones. In fact its becoming so normalised that I saw wireless charging pads included in many of the cars I took on test drives this year.

One term that you'll find attached to many wireless chargers is 'Qi' - which is a type of wireless charging technology. It was one of the first to be introduced to market and having a device meet the requirements of 'Qi Standard' remains important.

But despite its popularity, a lot of people don't actually know how to say 'Qi' properly.

Belkin has just announced two new products to its Boost Up wireless charging range - the BOOST↑UP Wireless Charging Stand 10W for Apple, Samsung, LG and Sony and the BOOST↑UP Bold Wireless Charging Pad 10W for Apple, Samsung, LG and Sony.

But there's just one problem. iPhones are only optimised for 7.5W wireless charging.
