Best List: AllDock USB charging station by AllDock

I have a gadget-friendly family. We’ve all got an iPhone, a few of us have iPads, and I’ve got an Apple Watch. All of these devices require charging, and all of them need a place to hang out when they’re not being used.

The AllDock is a gorgeous wooden universal charging station that lets me store and charge all the family devices in one location with ease, making it simple to grab any device and use it at a moment’s notice.

The walnut AllDock I tested is a medium-size charging station, which means it’s got enough capacity to charge up to four devices at once via the little USB power hub hidden discretely inside. There’s an adorable little Apple Watch charging addition that slips right into the top of the AllDock, letting me pop in my power charger and dock my Watch there every night when I go to bed.

I typically have my iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch set and ready, but also have another Lightning cable plugged in to charge up one of my kids’ devices (if they can bear to part with it).

The AllDock is super-easy to set up, comes with internal charging attachments to minimize cable clutter, and will look good no matter where you set it.

Price: $179 medium, $199 large (bamboo and plastic models cost less)

Buy from: Amazon, AllDock USA
