TYLT Energi Desktop Charging Station Lightning Review: A Smart Solution To A Common Problem

I have a lot of devices. Currently on my desk, you'll find the following: Nexus 5, Nexus 6, Nexus 6P, Nexus 7, Nexus 9, Pixel C, Blu Vivo 5, Huawei Honor 5X, and a Blu Life One X…and that goes without mentioning everything that's on the bookcase beside my desk. I never know which one I'll need on any given day, so it's imperative that they're all juiced up all the time.

Now, I realize that my situation is uncommon for one person, but I don't think it's uncommon for a family to have multiple devices — aside from my slew of devices, my wife has a phone and tablet, my oldest son has a phone and tablet, and my youngest son has like four tablets.

[Deal Alert] Anker 40W 5-Port USB Charging Station Discounted To $19.99 On Amazon With Coupon Code

If you want to charge all the things in one spot, you're probably going to need more USB ports. Today we've come across an Anker 40W USB charging station rocking five of them. We previously pointed one of these out back at the beginning of this year, and this model is just like that one, only better. Rather than 25W, we're looking at 40.

Since this model spits out more juice, the price is slightly higher. Instead of $19.99, it's going for $25.99. But there's a way to bring that number right back down to 20 bucks. Just enter the coupon code 20DF7105 at checkout to knock $6 off the price.

The CYSPO OmniStation Combines A Qi Charger With Six Modular USB Cables, And It Just Hit Its Kickstarter Goal

Sometimes you just need to charge everything you own at the same time. And when that happens, you have two options: a cluster of cables all in one place, or cables tethered to wall warts all over the house. Personally, I strongly dislike both of these options. I need the organization in my life.

The CYSPO OmniStation wants to save me, you, and everyone else with at least $80 to throw at a Kickstarter campaign from this charging hell. How? By combining a Qi charger and six modular USB chargers into one unit, with one AC adapter. It can charge everything at once.

[Charge All The Things] Yubi Power Tower Has 40 USB Charging Ports, Because Why Wouldn't It

Like most technology blogs, Android Police is decentralized. Our writers and editors work out of their homes, and occasionally in hotels, bars, or under bridges. We have no traditional office. But if we did, the Yubi 40-port USB Power Tower would sit proud in the middle, like some kind of plastic altar to electricity. We would come, bow down to the Tower, offer up our unworthy phones and tablets, and humbly take our blessings of sweet, sweet gadget juice.

This "40 Port Family Charging Tower Station" does indeed have a total of 40 USB ports for charging pretty much anything, though the fine print in the Amazon listing says that it can only charge 32 1-amp devices (phones) or 15 2-amp devices (tablets) at once.

Update: The coupon code has already expired. Sometimes that's just the way the cookie crumbles.

Update 1/27/14 12:17pm PT: New code Y8WGAYUM (via SD) should work today for the same $4 off.

Another device, another charger. That's the way the story goes. I personally leave a USB charger hanging from at least one outlet near every resting place in my apartment, but if you happen to need all of your devices in roughly the same place, my system won't exactly meet your needs. For you, there's the Anker 5-port USB charger on Amazon that's currently available for $19.99 on Amazon.
