iPhone 12 accessories-3

Happy 2021! If you were gifted a spiffy new iPhone 12 under the tree this year, we’ve got some great accessories to pair with it from Belkin and Speck, including grippy cases, cable, charger and screen protector.

BOOST↑CHARGE™ Dual USB-C GaN Wall Charge

BOOST↑CHARGE™ Dual USB-C GaN Wall Charger 68W + USB-C Cable

Belkin’s new, simple and compact BOOST↑CHARGE™ Dual USB-C charger uses Gallium nitride (GaN) technology for fast charging a couple of devices at once.

We’re also new to GaN tech, but basically it’s a high-performance alternative to the traditional silicone found in regular charging devices. Using less heat allows components to be closer together, translating to a much smaller charger, great for taking it on the road.

Not only suited to the new iPhone line-up, the Dual USB-C GaN charger can power up a 15” MacBook Pro from 0% to 50% in an hour; iPhone 8 models or later can get that same boost in 30 minutes.

The intelligent charger senses when each port is in use and suitably directs optimal power to each device. You can use a single port to charge one USB-C device and get up to 60W, or charge a laptop or tablet up to 50W with one port and a smartphone up to 18W with the other.

Belkin’s charger also supports non-Apple USB-C compatible devices such as Samsung and Google. Included is a 2 meter (6.6 foot) USB-C to USB-C cable. I’ve been using the wall charger with Apple’s own single-USB-C MagSafe power adaptor.

Belkin UltraGlass Screen Protector for iPhone 12 | 12 Pro

Belkin’s chemically-strengthened new German-engineered UltraGlass shield is twice as strong as tempered glass to offer your iPhone’s screen the ultimate, next-gen protection it deserves. It’s ultra slim at 0.29mm too!

Lithium Aluminosilicate (LAS) provides upgraded strength, flexibility and premium scratch resistance, and can can sustain drops from twice the height of conventional aluminosilicate/tempered glass.

Once installed via the included easy align tray, your iPhone benefits from precision-touch sensitivity through intelligent glass composition that reacts like your phone’s own screen.

I’ve used a Belkin screen protector on my iPhone Xr and it’s been a dream, never once slipping off or causing scratches to the display. If it’s your first time using one of Belkin’s screen protectors, we highly recommend that you watch their quick online video to get aquatinted with the process (belkin.com/How2EasyAlign).

In addition to the align tray, this screen protector ships with a cleaning cloth and dust removal sticker. CAD $49.95/USD $39.99

Speck Presidio Perfect-Clear with Grips for iPhone 12

Speck Presidio Perfect-Clear with Grips for iPhone 12

Speck’s Perfect-Clear with Grips case has all-over protection with rows of textured grips on the sides. Speck promises a coating that resists discolouration and yellowing, which I’ve seen happen to cases over the years and it’s not pretty.
