I can see why this unit won a Red Dot Design Award this year! Recommended
This product has really made a splash in our home because it looks so different plus reduces mobile device clutter considerably. This charging station has for concealed full size USB outlets underneath 2 x 1 Amp ideal for most phones, and 2 x 2.1 Amp outlets for larger devices such as tablets etc. The base stands firmly on chunky rubber feet which allows clearance for cables to feed out from underneath the stand to the devices stored on the unit. There is an inlet at the rear for the supplied (BS marked) figure of 8 mains lead. The roof of the internal compartment is covered in a sheet of Velcro and four strips are supplied to "cable manage" your USB device's cables. The front third or so of the internal compartment is occupied by the power supply and USB sockets but there is ample space left to store spare excess cable from your devices.
Externally the stand looks great and is an uncanny match for the world's leading make of tablets and smartphones with a gloss white finish to the plinth, a rubber black rubber mat on the upper surface. On the mat are 6 strategically placed cubes in red, black and grey forming 4 slots for phones and smaller tablets with 2 larger rectangles in black and red for larger devices such as tablets etc. You can easily store 6 USB powered items on this stand. In addition, you get an alternative coloured mat, cubes, rectangles all in green to change the look if you wish although I prefer the "default" version".
All the devices I've used with this stand charge perfectly including an iPad, Samsung Galaxy Tab 3.0, Nokia Lumia and Moto G smartphones. The charging speed being pretty well the same as their own supplied chargers.
In summary, this high quality Avantree stand will keep you devices neat, tidy and charged, plus, they're all in one place when you rush out of the door in the morning. I can't think of a more stylish or convenient way to store your rechargeable devices that are an essential part of daily life now - I can see why this unit won a Red Dot Design Award this year!
