The Belkin BOOST↑UP 5W Wireless Charging Pad is not fast charge enabled, with a maximum output of a 5W.

Size and Aesthetics
The Belkin BOOST↑UP 5W Wireless Charging Pad is sleek and minimalist whilst with a distinctive Belkin look and a bold Belkin logo in the middle. The design of the 5W BOOST↑UP is a square shape in contrast to the circular 7.5W and 15W pads, this may provide a more secure base for rectangular phones. Whilst the product does have a low-profile compared to other fast chargers it is quite wide and may take up more space.
This Belkin wireless charger functions like a standard wireless charging pad.
There is a rubber pad on the base of the Belkin BOOST↑UP 5W Wireless Charging Pad to keep it in place and the front of the charger is covered in a matte surface which grips your device.
While this product only has one transmitter coil built into it, a circular black ring in the centre of the front side of your charger indicates where to place your phone.
An LED indicator on the corner of the product flashes green when your Qi enabled phones are in position and stays a consistent green when a device is fully charged. This may be bright for smartphone wireless charging at night. The LED will also turn red if a foreign object is placed on the charger.
This Belkin wireless charger is not the cheapest for a 5W charger, but is reasonable enough considering the Qi certification and professional brand quality that we have come expect from Belkin products.
