2 Types Of Charging Stations To Consider And Their Benefits

One of the most annoying aspects of the spread of handheld and portable electronic devices, such as smartphones and tablets, is the need to devote multiple outlets to charging them. Listed below are two types of charging stations that can help resolve this issue and the benefits that each type provides.


One of the most convenient charging station options available to you is a wireless charging station. This option will allow you to simply set your compatible cell phone or tablet down on the charging pad without having to fumble around with charging cables or trying to make it sit just right in the charging cradle to enable the charging to begin. While this option can be quite convenient, you will want to check with the manufacturer of any wireless charging option that you are considering to ensure that your device is compatible.

In some cases, cell phones and tablets may have a wireless charging component built in. However, you do not have to worry too much if your phone or tablet does not have built-in wireless charging support as many of the most popular cell phones and tablets have the option to purchase a back cover or case for your device that enables wireless charging.


Another charging station to consider is a multi-slot station that is ideal for you if you have multiple mobile devices that you use frequently. This option will allow you to charge anywhere from two to six or more devices depending on the unit that you buy. The biggest benefit to this approach is that it will charge all of those devices without taking up more than a single outlet in your home. 

However, you will also want to consider this option if you and someone else in your household has devices from multiple manufacturers that utilize different charging cables, such as having an Apple and a Samsung device. The reason for this is that many of these charging stations will have charging cradles for multiple types of charging connectors or will have a range of generic USB slots that can be used to charge pretty much every cell phone or tablet on the market.

A wireless charging station is ideal if you want a simple and convenient solution while a multi-slot system is a great choice if you need to charge multiple devices at once, even if those devices are from different manufacturers.
