Best USB charging stations for multiple devices iMore 2022

The great thing about the best USB charging stations is that there are so many different options available, and here are some of the most promising options.

Best overall: Satechi Dock5 Multi-Device Charging Station

If you are looking for a way to keep all of your devices charged up without having absolute chaos, then the Satechi Charging Station Dock is our favorite of the bunch. This dock can charge everything you throw at it. Satechi makes some of the most premium accessories on the market, and this 7-port charging station is no different. Velcro straps are included, so your array of cables don't end up too unruly while keeping your desk space clutter-free. Additionally, each slot is large enough to accommodate even the largest smartphones and any cases you may have installed.

Satechi thought about almost everything with this charging station, as there is even surge protection built-in. It even features a wireless charging pad.


  • Charge up to 7 devices simultaneously
  • Included Velcro straps for organization
  • Spaces are wide enough to hold the biggest of devices, with their cases
  • Surge protection included
  • Two USB-C charging ports


  • No dedicated smartwatch charging station

No need for extra frills

The Satechi Charging Station is one of the best you can get, especially if you care about keeping your devices organized.

Ambient lights: SIIG Charging Station with Ambient Light

This 90W charging station from SIIG is pretty impressive, thanks to the fact that you can charge up to 10 devices at once. Plus, an ambient light is included to make sure you are plugging everything into the right spot.

These, combined with SIIG's smart charging, ensure that your devices won't overcharge once they've reached 100%. Unfortunately, this station has the same issue as others since having so many devices in one place can end up wreaking havoc. And you are out of luck if you want to charge your smartphone with just the USB-C cable.


  • Charge up to 10 devices at once
  • Non-slip padded space to accommodate other products
  • LED ambient light makes it easy to get everything plugged in
  • Smart IC provides the best charging efficiency for each device


  • No USB-C charging port
  • Too many cables can become unruly
  • Lack of charging dock for smartwatches

Premium finish: Sabrent Premium 60 Watt (12 Amp) 10-Port Aluminum USB Rapid Charger - Silver

Some folks don't want an actual stand to charge their multitude of devices, and that's where Sabrent's desktop charger comes in. It sports a slanted design for access to the USB ports, but you simply plug in the charging cable for your devices and go.

This design looks extremely clean and will blend in rather nicely sitting next to your iMac or MacBook. However, there are no USB-C ports, and the LED indicator light cannot be turned on, so you'll have to resort to unplugging the charger if the light is bothersome.


  • Charge up to ten devices at once
  • Built-in circuit protector
  • Rubber bottom to keep dock stable
  • Horizontal ports make plugging in cables easy


  • No USB-C ports
  • LED light cannot be turned off

This charging station has an aluminum build and includes a rubber bottom so that it stays in place while you plug in your devices.

Best charging tower: Key Power Desktop Charger Station

This Charger Station from Key Power is pretty nifty as it is actually a tower that you don't need to worry about accidentally falling over when more devices are plugged in. While it's a tower, the charger is still compact enough not to take up a boat-load of space on the desk and measures in at just over 4 inches.

There is even an LED light to let you know when your devices are being charged. However, if you are hoping for some Quick Charge support, you'll need to look elsewhere. Plus, there is no dedicated On/Off switch to turn it off when all of your devices are ready to go.


  • Can detect your device to deliver its fastest charging speed
  • Compact and portable
  • Small LED informs you of when devices are charging


  • No On/Off switch
  • No Qualcomm Quick Charge support

Best to charge anything: Anker 100W 4-Port Type-C Charging Station with Power Delivery

The new Anker PowerPort Atom PD 4 is perfect for those looking for a desktop solution capable of charging all of your devices, including the iPad Pro. There are two USB-C ports with Power Delivery, capable of providing up to 100W of power with the correct cable. The two additional USB-A ports take advantage of Anker's PowerIQ technology to ensure the best charging speeds for other devices.

Not only is the Atom PD 4 small and lightweight enough to pack away in your bag, but you can also remove the wall cable to make it even more compact. Anker ensures that this charger is compatible with all kinds of devices and will evenly distribute the necessary power based on the plugged devices. Plus, Anker offers an 18-month warranty if something goes awry with your charger.

On paper, the PD 4 marks off just about all of the checkboxes that one could want. However, there is no dedicated power button to turn the charger on or off. This means that you'll need to unplug it from the wall if you want to turn the charger off. Also, there is no official Quick Charge 3.0 support, and PowerIQ will likely do the job, but we still would've liked to see QC 3.0 onboard.


  • Charge up to 100W
  • Full-speed simultaneous charging for multiple devices
  • 18-month manufacturer's warranty
  • Lightweight enough to pack away for travel


  • No On/Off switch
  • No Qualcomm Quick Charge support

Bottom line

When it comes to the best USB charging stations, you can't get much better than the Satechi Charging Station Dock. The fact that it features five standard USB ports and two USB-C ports is appealing enough as it is.

Add in that Satechi includes velcro for cable management, along with built-in docks for your devices, and this is a no-brainer. Each port is large enough to hold even the largest devices and compatible with many recent varieties. You would be hard-pressed to find a charging station that met all of your needs more than Satechi's offering.
