I've got a few Belkin devices in my travel arsenal that have been long time companions when on the road. They're reliable, they look good, and they often have that one extra feature that makes them a cut above.
The new hybrid wall charger is a very smart addition to the ranks, offering a 5K Power Bank built into the wall charger so you have power with you all the time without having separate devices to stay topped up before you get to where you're going.
You get dual USB-C / USB-A ports with fast charging on USB-C, and you get interchangeable power plugs to suit US, EU, UK and AU power points.
The device I wish this had updated is my Belkin international travel charger that offers two USB-A ports and two Australian power points. I'd pay serious money if that had evolved to have USB-C fast chargers and a power bank inside. A boy can dream...
But my actual complaint is Belkin's refusal to give this thing a proper name. Having to call it the BoostCharge Hybrid Wall Charger + Power Bank 5K with Travel Adapter Kit is ridiculous. It's faster to ask for "that new Belkin hybrid charger power bank thing". It's $119.95.
