BlueLounge Sanctuary4 Desk Charging Station On Shelf Charging iPhone And Tablet
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?

ALSO CHECK the Orico 4, the Griffin PowerDock 5 and the Mahogany Charging Station we featured earlier.

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. The device can charge up to 4 smartphones or two tablets at the same time and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, Android devices and any other USB powered gadget.

BioLite Wood Burning Campstove With USB Charger
The BioLite Campstove is a cool multifunctional device designed to help campers cook a quick meal and … charge their iPhone or Android smartphones!
The devices works on renewable biomass (twigs, pinecones, wood pellets, you know, the regular stuff you find on the ground in the woods!!!) and has an output of 2W @5V (max continuous), up to 4W @5V on it’s peak. In plain English an output power of 2W @ 5V means close to the same power as a PC USB plug (a 20 minutes charge will allow an iPhone up to 45-60 minutes of talk time). It’s not the fastest charge in the world, but still, I’d be glad to have it with me when outdooring for a couple of days, away of regular electric power sources.

So, for first, we’ll do what every sane geek would do – get some basic protection as well as find a way to improve the iPhone battery life and make sure you finish the day on one power charge!

Everpurse - The iPhone Charging Purse That Will Triple Your Smartphone's Battery Life
If you’re anything like me (or the other 1.75 billion smartphone users on Earth) you must know how annoying it is to look at your phone’s screen at noon and see your battery only has 30% left for the rest of the day!
This is a constant problem of smartphones and I really hope manufacturers will be able to squeeze-in 5x-10x batteries in the near future! But, until then, although I tried many improving battery gadgets like iPhone Power Pack Cases, magnetic back covers and even the TsirTech battery wristband, finishing my day with battery juice left seems to be a rare miracle! (P.S. I even tried some of Gargamel’s highly rated black magic … still no luck!!!).

But, there seems to be some light at the end of the tunnel! At least for the ladies in our lives! Enter the EverPurse!
The EverPurse can be used as a standalone purse or as a purse insert and contains a built-in battery and charging dock for smartphones. Once you finish using your phone, simply slide it into the EverPurse and it starts charging right-away!

While on the outside it looks like real magic, here’s how things work on the inside: EverPurse features a special pocket with a smartphone charging dock. When you insert your phone in this special pocket, the bag guides it to perfectly connect with the dock and starts charging your phone. The EverPurse has an internal battery which can give 2 extra charges to your iPhone and can be charged by USB cable or wirelessly, using the included wireless charging pad that comes with the bag.

The EverPurse is made of natural leather, comes in a range of colors and models, can be used with iPhone 5/5s/5c or Samsung Galaxy S5. Available for pre-order with delivery in December 2014.
