About this product


Product overview

• Mains powered building block design charge station
• Eight USB charging ports fitted to charge all of your devices at once, up to the total power of 9A
• Four USB sockets auto-detect the power requirements of your device to give you the fastest recharge
• Four USB sockets are fixed at 2.4A to charge powerful items such as tablets in quick-time
• The station is ideal to leave on the desk at home or in the office for a shared central charging point

Why should I buy this charging station?
Many of us have multiple devices and it can be annoying when you’ve only got the space to charge one at a time. Often, you have to unplug a USB device from your PC or laptop so that you can charge one of your devices – but with this USB charging station you can charge up to eight devices at any one time.

What can I recharge with this charging station?
This charging station connects directly to your power socket and gives you eight USB sockets to plug your devices into. You can recharge up to four tablets or iPads at the same time, or up to eight smaller devices such as smartphones or dash cams.

How powerful are the USB sockets?
Four USB sockets are fixed to output 2.4A constantly for fast recharges on devices like tablets or laptops. The other four USB sockets auto-detect the perfect current to recharge your device, allowing you to recharge your smaller devices in super quick time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous for our holiday I bought this to take on holiday as we needed one that would work in the USA. It was fabulous as everyone could charge their items without fighting over plugs.

Could I use this to charge my Nintendo Switch Pro Controller? I have tried another USB hub rated at 3.5A with 7 ports but it didn't seem to work.

Asked by: Jack26
If the pro controller charges by USB i can't see any reason why this wouldn't work.

Can you use your device's while they are charging ?

Asked by: bristo
That would depend on the device itself, for most smart phones and tablets this should not be an issue.
