4-Port USB Travel Charger
Convenient for every day and travel
I was excited when The Container Store started carrying this, as I'd had my eye on some similar products out there. I use it in my bedroom so I can charge all of my devices at night. It is great because it only takes up one outlet and lets you charge multiple items quickly.
Be aware, though, that the instructions inside the box tell you that to obtain optimal results, the top two ports are for "iPad, iPhone, iPod, and most Android devices" and the bottom two ports are for "BlackBerry, iPhone, iPod, Android, and other USB devices". This works for me, but it may affect others' ability to charge all the devices you want. Also, it says that "when charging an Apple iPad, do not charge any other devices at the same time".
One last critique is that the indicator light showing that it is receiving power is extremely bright. It lit up my room the first night, until I covered it with painters' tape.
All in all, it is a good product and I'm happy with my purchase.

best thing since sliced bread
I love this charging station. I charge some of my apple and samsung products on this and also my headphones. It's a one stop shop. Nothing else like this on the market for the price. Definitely would recommend for anyone with multiple electronic devices that require usb charge. Very convenient.

1st one died... will give it another try
Purchased this for an extended vacation I was going on, and a few days into my trip, this unit died.
It was great while it lasted, but i see they are back in stock, so I will give it another try.
Only gave 2 star .... hoping that the first one was just defective.
