Loyal readers know I am a huge fan of wall plates that include USB ports. I like the Belkin wall plate so much that I got a couple more for my house last week. Of course there are times that even two USB ports aren’t enough. While the ports on that plate are great, they don’t provide the extra juice needed for devices that have a “fast charge” option.
So whether you get one for a location in your home where charging takes place or you get one to take on the road, the Anker 40W 5-Port USB Charger (see photo below) is something you should seriously consider. It is currently selling for under $26 on Amazon.
Not only does this awesome little charger have five ports, it also includes technology to deliver the extra juice for devices that support fast charging. It is an elegant solution for putting a charger on a desk, counter or nightstand. It is also small enough it can easily fit in your travel bag. As we all get more devices that charge via USB, we’re going to need this kind of charger to keep the power flowing.
