I remember, a few years back, induction charging was all the rage. People were investing absurd amounts of money in specialty cases for their electronics, which cut down the expression of such devices, in exchange for a drag and drop charging system. The concept was revolutionary, at first, until the production of such charging 'cases' couldn't keep up with the demand of newly released devices, and the technology soon fizzled out. It seemed, even in our wireless age, we were destined to be slaves to the unstoppable force of tangled cords and overcrowded outlets. And, as someone who despised untangling her Walkman headphones in high school, I am no friend of cables and cords. There is something about seeing a pile of wires protruding across your workspace and over the edge of one's desk that simply stresses me out.
The LEITZ 6520 has a slender workstation profile that accommodates up to 3 smaller mobile devices (iPods, smartphones, handheld gaming units) lengthwise, though larger Phablet style phones will have to rest horizontally when a tablet is charged into the top mount. On the face of the unit are 6 lime green 'grip' ledges that help keep your electronics in place and prevent sliding, though the color may be a little bold for some home office decor. A lip at the base of the unit acts as a shelf for smaller mobile devices, so you can always see the screen of your devices while charging, to keep an eye on mobile alerts. A groove at the top of the station allows tablets to sit upright, in a small ledge for viewing and interaction while charging. This also makes the Multi-Device Charging Station great for staging in the kitchen where it can also double as a stand for digital recipes and such.
What Daughter Says: Keep cords contained with a multi-charging station solution.
