With so many smartphones and tablets in a modern family home (not even mentioning smartwatches, Bluetooth headsets, digital cameras, etc…), finding a free charging spot for your device it’s not an easy job! Sometimes, I even feel charging a phone is like a contagious disease … as soon as you plug in your device, someone always appears from nowhere … “Can I plug mine for 5 min only, than it’s all yours? Please … Please…“!
Of course, you can use multiple chargers like everybody else does, but again … if your family is anything like mine, no one is ever unplugging the chargers and store them away of sight. And seeing every electrical plug around crowded with chargers it’s not a lot better, isn’t it?
This is where desk charging stations like the BlueLounge Sanctuary4 come into the game to fix the charging management issue! The Sanctuary4 is a cool Appleish style squared charging box that features 4 USB charging ports (total output of 4Amps), rubberized device tray and an adjustable tablet stand for charging and movie watching.
