When I travel, I have a number of gadgets that I bring with me. A laptop, cell phone, tablet and a few others are all must-haves, depending on where I’m headed and for how long. Naturally, all of them require power to function, which means carrying a bunch of different charging cables. It also means trying to find enough outlets in the hotel room to get power to everything. This new Aviiq Portable Charging Station aims to help with both of those issues.
This Charging Station† is a small pouch that holds all of your charging cables, and a USB hub. The hub allows you to use a single wall outlet to charge up to three separate gadgets. Yes, it will even put out enough power for your iPad, if needed. While I can agree that this would be handy, I’m not sure that I could justify the $80 price tag for a USB hub with a fancy carrying case.
