Top 8 Charging Stations iPhone

For those that spent a lot of money acquiring an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus early on, they may been somewhat dismayed to find that Apple had decided not – at least for the moment – to release an official dock with the product. This may change in the near future, but that hasn’t stopped third party developers of stands and charging stations of taking advantage and coming up with their own products that fit the record breaking smartphone. Here we take a look at a bunch of different options if you are an iPhone 6 user, or even if you aren’t! If you have many different device, including both smartphones and tablets to charge up, a stand may not be the option. A larger charging station or some kind of USB hub is usually, in this case, the route to take. Either way, whatever you require for your charging needs, we take a look at some of the best charging stations and docks out their for the current generation of smartphones, tablets and of course phablets. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below, and feel free to suggest your own favorites!

8. Bamboo Universal Charging Station ($35.95)

You might be surprised to find that there are many different wooden charging stations like this one by MobileVision available on Amazon: those that are designed to blend into the surroundings of your home in the most organic way possible, but also support many different devices, often at once. There are also leather options available if you don’t like wood, and this is really the perfect pick for those who have multiple devices and often want to charge them all at once! – Buy from Amazon

7. Anker 5-Port Charger ($13.99)

Anker have quickly become one of the go to names when it comes to smartphone charging. We recently reviewed their portable charger, which holds a ridiculous amount of hours and has been picked out by a bunch of other tech sites around the web as being the go to product if you want something that you can really rely on for an emergency charging platform when out and about, or perhaps driving with your iPhone. They also provide some excellent desktop chargers too, including this 5 port charging station which is great it you want something simply but with a lot of capacity. Anker also offers the ability for you to organize your devices by removing the charging pins and placing them as you wish. – Buy from Amazon

6. Photive 6-Port Charger ($24.95)

Another nice multi port charger is this one offered by Photive, which again stacks the USB ports on top of one another vertically rather than laying them out horizontally. It is perfect for the desktop and is an excellent space saver when it comes to charging multiple devices through your laptop or your wall sockets, and has the latest autodetecting technology to make sure each device is charged properly. – Buy from Amazon

5. Poweradd 6-Port Charger ($29.99)

Yet another excellent multiple USB desktop charger for smartphones and tablets, and another that sacrifices looks in favor of simplicity and functionality, is this one from Poweradd. It offers 6 slots for your Android or iOS devices, whether they be smartphones or tablets, and is durable enough to be carried around should you need to take it with you – perhaps when traveling. It’s quite expensive for what is essentially just a multi plug USB charger, but is great if you have multiple devices and need something that is simple but works well. – Buy from Amazon

4. Twelve South HiRise ($34.99)

Now, we all know that when it comes to smartphone accessories for the home, there is often a very broad line between the functional and the fantastical. Do you invest your money in something that works first and foremost, and then worry later what it looks like or what it says about you? The same goes for third party versus first or second party products – do you go for the official option, or do you save money and buy a potentially better third party accessory? All of this stuff definitely counts when considering accessories for the home, since you often want something that will fit in with your current interior design. And this is certainly the case when considering the Twelve South HiRise stand, which is almost like a statement rather than a stand! It fully supports the newer iPhone models, and is made of zinc alloy so weighs a hefty 1.2 kg. – Buy from Amazon

3. Bolse 7-Port Charging Station ($29.99)

Ther are 5 and 6 port charging stations, but this one from Bolse is actually the only product we tested that supports the charging of 7 different devices at the same time via USB. Using its built in smart chip the Bolse charging station will recognize the device that you plug in and then act accordingly, providing the correct level of charge and power to suit the particular device, even if all 7 devices are plugged in and require a different kind of treatment. It also has LED based notifications and safety features, to ensure that your devices are in safe hands. The list of supported devices is really endless, with just about every model of the iPhone and iPad and iPod, but also Samsung Galaxy models and your Nexus or Kindle. – Buy from Amazon

2. HardNok 6-Port Charging Station ($29.99)

Perhaps the best of these multi USB charging stations we found for smartphones and tablets however is this offering from HardNok. One cool feature that this accessory offers over other charging stations and desktop chargers is that it allows you to connect just the one simple power cable to the wall, which means that you will have less space taken up by needless wires. This is especially useful if you will typically be charging 5 or 6 devices at once and the USB cables can be a real pain. This one, like the others mentioned above, has a built in technology – here known as Smart IC – that means the charger will react to the device that has been plugged in and provide the correct charge and for the correct length of time. It als has safety features, and supports a huge range of devices. – Buy from Amazon

1. Avantree Powerhouse ($49.99)

When it comes to a charging station, what some developers don’t seem to understand is that this object will be on show in your home. Most people consider their home as their private space, and as a reflection of their personality in the same way their smartphone or mobile device is. As such, creating a product that is functional is key, but just as important is making something that is aesthetically pleasing in a design sense – something that you won’t be ashamed to place on your mantelpiece, so to speak! Enter the Avantree Powerhouse charging station, which might be one of the more expensive options out there at $50, but is worth this if only because it looks wonderful. And what’s more, it’s incredibley innovative! No, this isn’t just a pretty piece: it allows you to customize the top layer of your charging station, and make sure that all the devices you own can be stacked neatly while they are charging. Truly, the postmodern masterpiece of charging stations! – Buy from Amazon
