A dozen cables, wires, and cords. The average household of two people has at least 12-14 cables in use on any given day. From smartphones to devices plugged into your flat-screen, technology in need of a charge or an outlet is seemingly everywhere.
Surge protectors are a no-go as most don’t have enough or any USB ports. USB chargers also necessitate charging only one device at a time. The natural solution to having to charge a multitude of devices at any given moment is a USB smart charging station.
What Is It Like Having A USB Charging Station?
A USB charging station is kind of like a USB hub. It allows you to plug multiple devices into a centralized charging station put somewhere easily accessible to everyone. Built into the design are holders for phones and tablets. You just plug it in and your device charges. It’s easy.
- Never have to worry about finding a USB charger again.
- Charge up to 8 devices simultaneously with no loss in charge capability.
- Organize smartphones, tablets, watches, and more.
It’s a mess-free way to charge everyone’s devices. With plastic dividers, you keep USB cables separated as well as the devices themselves. This prevents eyesores and messes from accumulating as you charge.
Especially in a household with roommates, family, or friends staying with you, a multi-port USB charger will ensure there’s always somewhere to fast-charge a smartphone or tablet.
What is the Best USB Charging Station?
USB charging station models vary slightly per brand. The first thing to note is how many ports. Ensuring you have more than enough is key to making use of your USB charger.
Next up, you want to ensure the specifications are up to par. An eight-port USB station with 75 watts is enough power to charge devices simultaneously without any drop-off. Also, not every port’s likely to be PD-style fast-charging. Know how many there are and where they are located. This way, you can address any design issues before you buy.
We haven’t yet addressed the look of the station. To be honest, looks don’t matter much. Assuming the design is there to hold a device and to deliver a clean, simple look while multiple devices charge, that’s all you need really.
Lastly, it doesn’t hurt to have some over-charge protection and over-current protection in the charger.
