Best Family Charging Stations for Android

Seems like everyone, their brother, and even their dog have a phone these days. These stations can help keep them all charged. If you live in a household with a family of three, four, or more, and you have kids who are at the smartphone stage, then keeping them all charged up all the time can be a bit of a pain. Smaller wall chargers go missing, the cat chews the cables, and kids can just outright forget (a lot of good a dead phone is in an emergency!). These family charging stations can help you charge multiple devices at once, all in one spot. Anker PowerPort 4 Vogek 6-port charging station RAVPower desktop charging station Simicore charging dock iClever BoostStrip SIIG 10-port charging station Unitek 10-port charging station with USB-C Anker PowerPort 4 Anker makes some of the finest charging products you can buy, from cables to wireless charging pads to charging stations. The PowerPort 4 has four USB ports and simply plugs into any AC wall outlet (can also accept an adapter when traveling abroad), and it can supply up to 2.4A per port. You can snag one of these for around $25 in either black or white, and Anker provides an 18-month warranty should anything go wrong. See at Amazon Vogek 6-port charging station This sleek, round charging station kind of looks like something out of "2001: A Space Odyssey," and it has six ports around its circumference, so everyone can get juiced up at once. It features an LED indicator to let you know when it's properly plugged in, and the silicone pad on the bottom makes it perfect for the kitchen counter, nightstand, or coffee table. The power cable is nearly 5 feet long, so you won't have to awkwardly place this near an outlet and then even more awkwardly get your phones and other devices hooked up to it. It comes in black, blue, silver, or white, starting at around $16. See at Amazon RAVPower desktop charging station RAVPower's desktop charger has six ports and provides up to 2.4A per port, not offering fast charging, though it does provide that 2.4A to all six ports simultaneously. Its compact design makes it fairly inconspicuous, and it provides overcharge/overcurrent/overvoltage protection so that all six of your devices don't get fried should some electrical calamity strike. Comes in black or white for about $25. See at Amazon Simicore charging dock Simicore's charging dock is similar to Pezin & Hulin's, but it has a more modern design and charges up to four devices, organizing them for you in slots. The minimalist design is sleek and should fit right in on your desk or wherever you need to charge up. The four ports provide up to 2.4A simultaneously, and the on/off switch is handy for when no one's charging and you want to conserve some energy. Comes in silver or space gray for around $30. See at Amazon iClever BoostStrip For about $20, you can snag this charging station that has four USB ports and three AC outlets, so you can charge up to seven devices at once if you have three adapters handy. Coming in black or white, this station essentially resembles a power bar with an on/off switch for the USB ports and for the AC outlets, so you can conserve some energy when not using either. Each of the USB ports supplies 5V at 2.4A, and if you have a quick charging adapter, you can make use of that with the AC outlets. Comes in black or white. See at Amazon SIIG 10-port charging station If the whole family comes over for the holidays, then a 10-port charging station will likely come in quite handy. The 90W charging station from SIIG has a silicone surface so that your phones and tablets don't slide around as they charge up in their slots. Each port provides up to 2.4A, and there are eight slots for phones and a larger pad for resting your smartwatch or other devices while they charge. One great detail is that the slots are wide enough to fit phones that are in bulkier cases. At $50, this is one of the most expensive charging station on this list, but it's worth it if you want to charge all the things at once. See at Amazon Unitek 10-port charging station with USB-C The Unitek charging station truly can charge it all; it features 10 charging ports — 8 2.4A USB-A ports, one Quick Charge port, and a USB-C PD port. This lets you quickly charge phones of every type, laptops, Chromebooks, tablets, and more. And the best part is that no one ever has to wait for an open charging port (unless you're one of the Duggars). At $90, this type of charging doesn't come cheap, but it does provide you with virtually every option you could need or want. See at Amazon Bototek 6-port charging station with USB-C This 6-port station has five 2.4A USB-A ports and one USB-C, so you can charge up to five devices at normal speed and one quickly simultaneously. The upright slots organize your devices so that they're not just strewn all over your counters, and at roughly $28, this is a great way for the whole family to get its charge on. Bototek even throws in the USB-C cable. See at Amazon
