Quirky Converge Multi-Gadget USB Charging Docking Station
Have a bunch of electronic gadgets that need to be fed power regularly? Instead of having them lie dangerously on the table with tangling wires waiting to be tripped over, here’s a multi-gadget docking station from Quirky that is capable of holding more than a single gadget for USB charging.
The Quirky Converge docking station isn’t just big enough to hold an iPad, but can also accommodate an additional smartphone like the iPhone with its length. In place of an iPad you can also charge two smaller devices such as a portable media player or an external backup battery too.
The input source for this docking station is from the AC mains and accepts a voltage range of 110-240V which is compatible worldwide. Since the power comes from the AC mains, the USB hubs will be capable of providing full power to each port independently instead of offering only power split from a single USB port, which is the case for typical USB hubs. This means if you have multiple gadgets connected simultaneously to the docking station, charging time will not be slowed down.
Since the power input comes from the AC mains and not from the computer, the docking station will not be able to perform data transfers like syncing and file transfers.
Not only does it help to keep your table clear of clutter from messy cables, the large docking area also acts as a convenient stand for watching videos clips and movies on your devices in either portrait or landscape orientation while they’re sitting in the docking station.
