Charge Up To 5 Apple Devices With The Griffin PowerDock 5 iPad, iPhone, iPod

With the number of tablets and smartphones constantly increasing in each household, it gets more and more tougher to charge and organize your family’s gadgets while not in use.

The guy at Griffin have you covered tough. Their latest release, the PowerDock 5, consists of a high quality white charging base with 5 individual slots for storage as well as 5 USB slots for charging. While Griffin targets this charging dock to Apple devices, we see no reason why this could not be used with other OS devices like Android or Blackberry. At the end of the day, almost any gadget released today has USB charging capabilities.

Charge Your Gadgets On The Go With The AViiQ Portable Charging Station Charging

Since a couple of good years the electronic gadgets are part of our day-to-day life. Think how boring life would be without smartphones, tablets, MP3s, laptops, Bluetooth headsets … and so on.

With time, all these gadgets tend to become smaller and smaller for increased portability. But all this comes with a price … and that price is usually the battery life! A solar iPhone charger is great for outdoor use, but it’s a slow charge rate. An Emergency Power unit is great, but it’s too bulky.

So, what the perfect solution? While I am not sure the AViiQ Portable Charging Station is the perfect solution for everybody, it’s 5200 mAh battery pack and the possibility to charge up to 4 gadgets in the same time make it a good contender. Also, the leather casing is a good plus, giving the charging unit a sleek look.
