The removal of the 3.5mm audio jack was inevitable and it has happened in the recent launch event where the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were announced. Apple is providing new earpods with lightning connector to listen to music much like the LeMax 2 which came with the Type C earphones. But this leaves you with an option to choose from either listening to music or charging your phone as the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus does not come with Wireless charging option.
So to all those who are in love with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus looking to upgrade to either of the one but are disappointed with the lack of 3.5mm jack, Belkin has a solution for you with the new Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar adapter which lets you listen to Audio while charging your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.
Belkin’s Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar is compatible with Lightning Audio headphones and Apple Lightning to 3.5mm Headphone Jack Adapter. It supports pass-through charging up to 12W for iPhone and iPad. In the Audio aspect, it supports up to 48 kHz, 24-bit audio output. The connecter works with the Apple iPhone 7 Smart Battery case and battery packs as well for on the go charging which is pretty useful.
So as you see with Apple and any of its accessories, nothing is ever cheap and so is the Belkin Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar which is available only in White color and is priced at $39.99 which is approximately Rs. 2600 and is said to be available in Belkin.com along with Apple.com and at the Apple retail stores. It is a useful option but if you are travelling imagine using a power bank or a battery pack while connecting this connector with the convertor and the headphones which will be a pretty complicated set up making it quite uncomfortable to carry around. This is a good option for any user who cannot live without music on the go and wants to charge the device at the same time.
