Review: Belkin 3.5mm Audio + Charge RockStar

Review: Belkin 3.5mm Audio + Charge RockStar
The removal of the headphone jack on the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus last year caused no small degree of angst among tech enthusiasts; despite the fact that Apple included a Lightning to 3.5mm headphone adapter in the box, many raised the valid concern that this still didn't provide a way to power, charge, or sync an iPhone while also listening to music. While Belkin was quite to respond to this need last fall with its $40 Lightning Audio + Charge RockStar, this initial solution left us a little perplexed, since instead of actually providing a 3.5mm audio jack, it simply offered two Lightning connectors, allowing you to connect power to one and using the Apple-supplied Lightning to 3.5mm adapter in the other — a functional but awkward solution. We suspect the usual arcane restrictions of Apple's rather opaque MFi program were to blame for this rather kludgy approach, but whatever the reason, we're definitely happy to see Belkin's new 3.5mm Audio + Charge RockStar delivering what the original adapter should have in the first place.{/exp:char_limit}
