There is no denying that we use technology is almost every aspect of our lives. This includes out smart phones, tables, fitness trackers, smart watches and so much more. This usually leaves all out power outlets full of different chargers. Luckily we can now choose a piece of technology that frees us from all these cables and it is known as a USB charging station. Our devices take up so much space leaving little to no room for anything else that might require a power outlet. While some people are happy with a bulky power strip it still takes up a lot of space, a USB charging station for multiple devices reduces this clutter all while looking elegant.
Now some of you might be thinking of those old charging stations that look like bulky racks, this is not what I’m referring to. I’m talking about the new sleek and slim multi USB charging station, so how do you know what to look for when going out to purchase one? Well, there are a few factors you need to take into mind which includes the form factor, the number of ports and much more all of which we will cover below.
The first thing for you to decide on is what form you like most. USB charging stations come in three various forms which include wall chargers, organizers, and corded hubs, which one you choose is your personal choice. The wall charger type plugs directly into an outlet with an outer box that fits all the USB cords you need. A corded charger is basically the same as a wall charger only instead of directly sitting on the outlet it gives you a few feet of wire in between the box and the outlet, this is great for people who have hard to reach outlets. An organizer charger is quite a bit bulkier but offesr you room to hold your equipment, this is great for people who use their desk for everything as it keeps everything in one place.
The number of ports you choose is also an important factor and while you may think it’s an easy step it is usually one that most people get wrong. First you should make a list of any devices that you already have so you know the absolute bare minimum amount of spaces you will need. You should also make sure to have a few extra slots just to make way for the future as you never know how many more items you will end up buying. Also, make sure you choose a model that offers more than one charging mode, these should either be clearly labeled on the box or model itself. Last but not least you should also consider any specialty features available to you and which ones you might want. Some models come with fast charge technology which may be useful to those of you who don’t have time to wait for your devices to charge, or for those who need extra battery life all day long. Hopefully, after reading this article you feel more competent in knowing what to look for when going out to purchase your own USB charging station.
