Our world is forever changing and evolving. Gone are the days of handwritten letters, camera rolls and phones mounted to your wall. These days it’s all about technology and the latest and greatest piece of equipment created to make our lies easier.
With all this technology comes a greater demand for charging locations in your home.
Finding a place to charge your smart phone, iPad or similar devices can be challenging when there is more than one person in your home vying for the same outlet/outlets.
In our home we usually use the counter in the kitchen to charge our phones and iPads. We have found that plugging them in elsewhere in our home only leads to chewed up plugs, compliments of our cats. Not only is that dangerous for them, it also means we have to keep a supply of power cords on hand, which isn’t cheap. The safest place is on the counter in the kitchen where the cats have no access to the plugs (our cats know they are not allowed on the counter).
Even on our counter we are limited to the number of things that can be charging at one time. One outlet is close to the sink and dish rack, so we don’t charge there in fear our phones or iPads will get wet. Another plug is located by the microwave. To use it we need to unplug the microwave and my e-Brewer which means we’d have to reset the clocks after we unplug the charger. That is way too much of an inconvenience. So that leaves us with just one viable outlet which can charge two things at a time.
What we, and many other households, need is a place to charge multiple devices at the same time.
Introducing the Accell Powramid Air Power Center and USB Charging Station – Accell’s new power solution that features six adapter friendly outlets and two USB charging ports. The charging station is ideal for home, school and office use.
The charging station is also a surge protector.
Even though we NEED more charging options for our smartphones and iPads, I opted to use the Accell Powramid Air Power Center and USB Charging Station under/behind my desk to help organize all the power cords that I need (laptop docking station, desktop, lamp, fan…). It was a jumbled mess behind my desk. It was also impossible to know what plug went to what.
I had my husband re-organize the plugs under my desk and using my Brother label maker I labeled each plug on my charging station.
It’s hard to get a photo of it because it’s buried behind the router and another box (I forget what it’s for) under my desk. It’s dark (and dusty!) under there. I have a corner desk and everything (plugs) are tucked in the corner – literally.
The Accell Powramid Air Power Center and USB Charging Station is not too big, but it does give you ample space between plugs allowing you to plug in larger plugs (those big square ones).
I like that there is one on/off switch which allows me to turn off multiple items at the same time instead of individually. This makes it much easier when you are going away for a few days and want to un-plug your powered devices.
The six foot cord to plug the charging station in is also great. It allowed me to place it exactly where I needed it under my desk instead of having it too far over to one side.
I can’t really use the USB plugs because of where it’s located behind my desk, but it’s nice to know they are available should I need them.
The Accell Powramid Air Power Center and USB Charging Station looks like a flying saucer. LOL! It’s also available in black or white (I have white).
The charging station is also flat and has a skid and scratch resistant base so you don’t have to worry about it marking up your hardwood or laminate flooring (we have carpeting so it’s not an issue for us).
The Accell Powramid Air Power Center and USB Charging Station is a great solution for families who need a lot of charging options. It would also be great for a conference room where people will need a lot of power options. Or you can use it for the same purpose I use it for and that is to get control of the mess of cords under my desk and get them neat and organized.
The unit is “budget friendly” too at only $35.99 on the Accell website.
