Charging Stations

Dec 7, 2006

In our house a power strip has become our ad hoc el cheapo Multipot Personal Electric Charger. It's a muddle of wires and charging devices and we cuss it every time we plug or unplug one of the six devices that call it their hitching post.

DWR's glowing drum solution (currently on sale for $178 ) has been around for a while now, and it still gets the job done with the most style. But while we wait for the solution we really want (a rumored BlueTooth wireless charging platform) we're starting to notice cheaper solutions to this problem popping up at more utility-oriented retailers like and Organize Everything. Here are two that are better-looking than our power strip and that we have half a mind to try:

The faux leather station (bottom pic) can pocket up to 4 devices simultaneously and looks like it was separated at birth from one of those executive desk accessory sets. It's really just a power strip costume: you make it functional by attaching your own power strip to the back.

The Power Station by Resource® (top pic) is, in our mind, a better solution. This product has nooks for only 3 devices, but because it's essentially a glorified power-strip (the strip is built-in) it's an all-in-one solution.

Faux Leather Charging Station, $29.99
Power Station by Resource®, $21.95
