The little table that sits just inside my kitchen is always cluttered with electronic devices either plugged in and charging or waiting until an electrical outlet is free. Its top drawer is filled to the brim with USB cables and their charging units.

I despise clutter and loathe the time and effort wasted untangling the snake’s nest of cables. To alleviate this problem, I decided to purchase a unit capable of quickly charging all my electronic toys at once.

When I began my search, I discovered that several manufacturers had developed charging stations that were designed somewhat like a bookrack. My cellphones, Kindle, and tablet could all be stored atop the station and, when their batteries ran low, recharged through the unit’s USB outputs.

After checking out the specifications of several likely candidates, I purchased Vogek’s five-port charging station.

Description

The central unit of this charging station weighs 14 ounces. It is 6.5 inches wide and five inches deep. The station rises 1.4 inches but, once the ABS dividers are inserted, overall height increases to 3.1.

Five standard USB ports are fitted to the front of this 50W, 10A charging station. Each of these five-volt ports can handle up to two amps of current.

Smart Charging Technology automatically identifies multiple connected devices and their charging requirements. Each port of the USB charger delivers exactly the right amount of power to meet the devices’ needs. Please note, however, that this station does not support Quick Charge 2.0 or 3.0.

Short-circuit, over-voltage, over-current, over-charge, and overheat protection are employed to ensure the safety of connected devices.

An input AC voltage of 100V – 240V is required. Unlike many of the oversized plugs associated with electronic devices, the power plug for this station will not crowd its neighbors.

Six ABS plastic dividers are provided. They can be inserted into slots located on the upper surface of the station. Up to five electronic devices may be placed vertically atop the station.

Vogek provided four short USB to Lightning connector cables, which are used to charge Apple products. Also included were two USB to C connector cables and two USB to micro USB cables.

Vogek recommends utilizing the cables that came with the devices that are being charged. However, because the Vogek cables are shorter, I generally use them to connect my equipment.

The Manufacturer

Vogek is trademarked by the Shenzhen AiWoLi Technology Co., Ltd. This company is based in China.

Visual Appeal

This device is a short flat box with what appears to be a row of cooling fins pushing up from the top. These fins—actually they are plastic dividers—hold and separate the devices being charged. The eight supplied USB cables are short enough to minimize clutter.

Durability

All ports performed correctly, without indications of overheating. The dividers proved sturdy enough to provide support for my seven-inch tablet.

Capability

I was able to charge two phones, a Kindle, and a Lenovo table simultaneously. The time required to charge a single device did not increase when additional equipment was connected to the station.

This station allows for storage of up to five electronic devices and, if required, is perfectly capable of charging all of them simultaneously. If you want to reduce clutter, increase storage, and provide a method of quickly charging your devices, Vogek’s five-port charging station is an excellent option.
