Best Multi Device Charging Station Organizer

Updated on December 1, 2014

A Multiple Device Valet Charging Station Declutters Your Desk

Do you run out of desk space when charging your mobile devices? Are you tired of seeing a growing mess of cables about your house or office? These problems are worse if family members have multiple devices, but you can get things under control by using a multi device charging station organizer to juice up all devices at the same time while also keeping your table or desk neat looking.

You can take your pick in designs, from simple stands with 2 or more device placeholders, to mini desks that hide away a power strip and give you additional space to store other small items. It's pretty easy to find one to match your room's decor.

Let's take a look at the top rated styles on offer. In addition to the following selection, there are a few more valet charging stations to choose from.

Below you'll find stations in 4 groups - stations with USB ports, a travel charging case, stations with hidden cable and power strip storage, and docking charger cradles.



Simple Valet Charging Station Organizer for Cell Phones and Tablets

If all you need is a valet organizer for a desk or counter top to hold multiple devices while they are charging, there are some simple and inexpensive options available. These do not come with charging ports, but have cubbies or slots to hold devices while you plug them in directly with their own cables.

ClearTech Acrylic Desktop Organizer

This clear acrylic valet is unassuming and can blend into any room décor but is very effective in keeping your desk free from clutter. There are 3 front compartments for smart phones and accessories like batteries, keys and chargers, and a back compartment that is large enough to hold one iPad and one mini tablet standing on their long sides.

The center front compartment is tilted towards you to allow you to access your phone easily while it is being charged. Each compartment has a notch on the edge to allow power cables to sit in tidily while charging and to stay in place when unplugged. This full sized valet measures 10-1/2"L by 6-1/2"W by 4-5/8"H.

If you don't own a tablet and find the size of this organizer too large, you can opt for the smaller version which only has the 3 front compartments for smart phones.

Multiple Device Charging Station with USB Ports

If you find your home with fewer power outlets than mobile devices, you'll need to use either a power strip or a power adapter that plugs into one outlet but has several cables that connect to each device. This way you can charge many devices at the same time.

The most convenient and neatest option is to use a charging station that comes with several USB ports so that a single power connector is needed. Just plug in each device's USB charging cable into one of the ports and set your phones and tablets in a slot to charge.

Universal Charging Station for Multiple Devices

The whole family can get their mobiles juiced up from a single power source with this station! This sleek looking unit has a top tray fitted over the station. There are 6 slots on top to hold your devices - 4 of them in the center are 19mm thick and the two end slots are 11mm thick. This means you don't have to remove the protective cases from most of them as they charge. And you can use this unit for any Apple or Android device.

It comes with a single 4 foot long power cord that plugs into the side and there are 6 hidden USB ports underneath the top tray from which you plug in each device's charging cable (not included). You'll also get three 8" long micro-USB cables that are compatible with devices like the Galaxy S5 and Note 3 that use micro-USB 3.0 ports.

The cables come out from underneath through a slot in the tray, so there's no hint of clutter and enough room to bundle all wires out of sight.

This One Even Holds a Laptop!

If you're averse to the modern office-looking stations, consider this eco-friendly bamboo unit that will go with most home interiors. The best thing about this one is that it can hold even a laptop as long as it does not exceed 1.25 inches in thickness. Add a tablet and up to three smartphones and even the most tech savvy families can stay organized!

The bottom of the base is lined with microfiber to prevent scratches on your desktop. The device holder then sits securely on the base as it is magnetized. So, where do all the wires go? The holder has various grooves through which they are pulled out and if you lift it up, a hidden compartment with built in elastic straps reveals itself. You can neatly secure all the wires with these, so they can remain hidden.

Similar as Above but in Black Leather

Portable Charging Station for Travel

These days we even travel with multiple devices, and organizing and keeping them powered when you have a packed schedule isn't easy.

A charging station that is light and compact makes life a lot easier as you can pack the entire unit as an organizer for all your devices and cables. Then just open it up at your hotel and plug in everything in one go!

This would make a cool gift for a frequent traveler.

AViiQ Portable Charging Station

Forget about tangled cables and space-guzzling adapters while commuting to work or traveling. This compact all-in-one charging station charges up to 4 devices at a time while keeping all the cables tidy. The whole unit comes in a handy zipped travel case of either grey nylon on black leather.

There are 4 detachable winders that wrap and separate all the USB cables from each other. If you want to charge all your devices at the same time from one electrical outlet, just plug them in with the cables without unwrapping them from the winders. Alternatively, if you want to just charge one from your laptop or data sync with your laptop, remove that cable's winder and unwrap it before plugging it in.

Use the integrated international power adapter, that provides up to 15 watts, to plug into an electrical outlet to quickly charge all mobile devices.

Now there's no need to travel with multiple chargers and power adapters! If you'd like to see exactly how it works, scroll down for a video demonstration.
