We cannot imagine our lives without them, but they can’t run for long without getting charged at regular intervals. Whether it is your laptop, mobile phone, power bank or wireless headphones, charging them is a chore that you must do. But what makes this task more arduous is when you are forced to charge them at different times only because you do not have that many sockets in one place.

Not any longer.

A relatively new addition to the tech accessory repertoire, multi-port charging stations or hubs can make your life easy. There are so many options available in the marketplace that you are spoilt for choice.

It is almost a godsend for people on the move—you don’t have to jostle for space with fellow travellers at the airport charging station. With one of these multiple ports in hand, all one needs is a socket to plug it in. 

What to look for?

These charging stations come in all colours, shapes and sizes with varying number of ports. But, there are some ground rules you should know when buying this accessory.

One of the most important feature is the length of the cord. If you have a long cable, you can have all the devices charging at your workstation at home or in office.

Also go for a hub that can identify the amount of power each of your devices needs—it will ensure fast and optimum charging of your device. Overcharging can damage your expensive mobile phone, tablet, or headset.
