Keeping things tidy
on 17 July 2011
I was looking into some sort of way of keeping my cables tidy when charging my devices as I have several items and leads to match that can look very messy when all of them are on charge together.. I originally looked into those devices that you simply just place on a mat...BUT.. in the advertisements they neglect to tell you that you have to buy the attachment that goes on the back of the phone for each individual item... that and the fact it adds considerable bulk to the phone or device your charging .. so that method was a no no for me..This however is very similar in style and uses the original cables (but not the charger) and is kept neat and tidy wrapped inside the unit itself.. no extra cost and really does keep things to a minimum where cables are concerned. You can actually charge 4 devices at once supplying 5v x 500mA to each one... more then enough for phones ..ipods and the such like..
When you attach your usual cable, sit it down, you simply press the button at the rear of the unit and a subtle neon light comes on to tell you it's charging.. when the device is charged it turns itself off..Unlike the chargers that are supplied with phones etc... but the nice thing is... while that unit is being charged ,all you have to do is add devices as required and as long as one of the devices is still being charged you do not have to keep pressing the start button.. it automatically knows you have added a device and starts to charge that one too.. when all of the have been fully charged it turns itself off again..
It's well made and looks quite smart sitting on my computer desk.. but it wouldn't look out of place on any piece of furniture as long as you have ONE power socket (not 4) close by,then you have a central position for all your devices knowing they will be fully charged when you pick them up for the day.. The cable on the device supplied is 3' 6'' which is fairly generous...Oh.. and you do get 2 cable connectors supplied.. 1xusb to Micro Usb And 1xusb to mini usb..
Yes it is a bit pricey.. and I'm sure it will come down eventually.. but if you are looking for that item that keeps things neat and tidy (especially cables) then look no further.. this is the one to get.
