As our families grow, so do our device charging needs. Besides of our iPhones, we now have iPads, cameras, Kindles, Bluetooth speakers and more laying around that constantly need to be charged. Thankfully, there are dozens of options to pick from, if you need a spare USB charger.
1. Griffin MultiDock
This mean and lean charging machine has 10 high-powered USB outputs so you can charge and sync up to 10 power-hungry gadgets at the same time. What’s more, Griffin’s premium-grade charging station intelligently detects the charging characteristics of the smartphone or tablet being charged and adjusts its power flow accordingly.
2. Converge 4-port desktop USB charger
The Converge is made to charge up to 4 USB devices simultaneously, and will look great on your table or desk while doing it. It is designed to hide those dangling wires while it is doing its thing.
3. Kinkoo 40W 6-port desktop USB charger
A category-high 40 watts through six ports lets you charge all your phones, tablets or other devices simultaneously while taking up less space than a wallet (only 4.1 × 2.2 × 0.9in). It has a maximum current output of 8 amps, up to 2.4 amps per port, and intelligent circuitry regulates the power delivered for optimum charging.
