I like: Belkin Audio + Charge Rockstar

Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Belkin Audio + Charge Rockstar is an accessory that allows you to charge and listen via headphones to a modern iPhone at the same time. Apple’s move to the Lightning connector leaves a lot to be desired; but you have to work with what you have.

It has come in handy listening to voice memos, audio books and miscellany whilst I’ve been working at client offices.


I started off by trying an alternative product that I bought on Amazon. It the sound was barely audible, full of noise and clicks.


It was rather like listening to a numbers station shortwave transmission.

By comparison, the Belkin Audio + Charge Rockstar, adds nothing. No cracks, no hisses, no white noise that wasn’t there beforehand. And it charges.
