The Anker 5-port USB charger is a way to take that cluster of chargers that's turning the power strip behind your sofa into a fire hazard and consolidate it down into something manageable. With enough ports to charge five devices at once, you're also freeing up much-needed power outlets.
Last year this hub was available for $16 on Amazon if you used a coupon code that dropped the price down from $20. Those of you who meander over to the device's page today may find that it's gone down a bit since then. That's right, now it's only $12. And no, you don't need to fumble with any promotional codes.

If you're a regular person, you might have a single phone that you can easily charge through the USB port on the side of your laptop. Maybe you have a tablet that just so happened to die at around the same time. You don't feel like getting up, so you plug it into your other USB port, and that is that.
But if Android devices mean a bit more to you. You read the blogs. You write for blogs. You develop apps. Read More
Ah, the great outdoors. With summer in full swing here in America, many of you are probably taking part in one of our nation's great pastimes, camping. Some of you may be purists who believe that camping is a great opportunity to leave the hectic world behind, including your phone, tablet, and other gadgets. The other 99 percent of you have a hard time deciding whether to bring two more bags of beef jerky or an extra 10,000 mAh battery in your backpack.
For those of you who like your camping with a side of tech, we have a good deal for you today. Read More
Do you have as many gadgets as you have fingers and struggle to charge them all at once? Well then, this is the deal you have been waiting for. Amazon has a pretty sweet promotion going on for the Sabrent 10-Port USB Charger.
If you purchase one today for $25 you will also get a six pack of highly rated Micro-USB cables thrown in for free. That's a savings of about 10 bucks. The pack of cables includes 3 x 1' cables and 3 x 3' cables. It kinda blows my mind that you still will need four more cables to max out this charger! Read More
There are so many gadgets nowadays that charge via USB that having a separate AC outlet dedicated to each one can be difficult, if not impossible. A multi-port hub can definitely solve this problem, though. Personally, I have a 5-port charger on my living room table where I have my G Watch's charging connector, a microUSB cord for my phones, and the cable to charge the heart rate strap I use during workouts all in one place. This deal on an ORICO 5-port hub for $10.99 might be just the reason you need to streamline your charging game.
As you can see in the image above, there are two "super charger" ports and three "universal." This is ORICO's way saying that the two "super" ports support 2.4A output while the others are limited to 1A. Read More
Multi-port USB chargers are my favorite new gadget accessory. I have a couple five port chargers in my house right now, and they have become my new go-to birthday / wedding / housewarming / bachelorette party gift as they are pretty cheap and universally well received.
The last one I bought a couple months back cost about $25 dollars, but today on Amazon you can pick up the Poweradd 50W 6 port USB charger for just $15.99 after entering a coupon code ($4 off the normal price).
This Poweradd charger has 3 pairs of ports (2.4, 2.1, and 1.0A) for a total of 10A of charging capacity. Read More
There's only so much you can plug into a wall socket at one time. It's pretty easy math: each one can hold one plug, though there are ways to twist this math to your favor. You could always get a surge protector, but if you're looking to provide power to things that all rely on USB, you might want something that takes up less space.
With a Vority 6-port charger, you can provide power to up to six devices from a single power outlet. The USB hub is small enough to fit at the back of a desk or on top of a PC tower.
The charger goes on Amazon for $39.99, but you can effectively get a 50% discount by entering the coupon code 8NZPPNOJ at checkout. Read More
Gadget lovers tend to accrue all kinds of electronic detritus on their desks, night tables, coffee tables, and any other flat surface where you can put down a tablet. And for keeping that detritus charged, there's nothing more convenient than a USB outlet adapter... except an adaptor with more than one USB port. If you find yourself short of places to plug in, Amazon is offering a Volmate 5-port charger for just $12.49 after a coupon. It's not quite as cheap as a song, but it's close.
This particular Volmate adapter has two 2.1-amp plugs, one 1.3-amp plug, and two more 1-amp plugs. Read More
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. Read More
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. Read More
