Brilliant or Baffling? Deluxe Charging Station

Savvy says: Brilliant
When I first saw the name of this product, I thought it was a Deluxe Changing Station, which definitely doesn't interest me at this point in my life since I don't have kids! A few years ago, the actual product wouldn't have caught my eye either. I was a low-maintenance gal back then, and my only go-to gadget was my cell phone that had an antenna and a screen that only worked sometimes. I'm the first to admit those times, well, they've changed.

Like many of you, there's always a Blackberry, iPod, and cell phone in the depths of my enormous bag. All of these items need to be charged, and my fiancé has his own necessities that also come with cords. The corners of our apartment are becoming tangled eyesores, so I'm thinking of investing in one Deluxe Charging Station ($60) for each of us. I know these aren't brand new inventions, but I'm finally coming to terms with my not-so-low-maintenance self. Do you already have one of these, and if not do you think you need one?

I would say brilliant. I think Pottery Barn is now doing them in white also, possibly other finishes. A great idea!

I'd love to have one of these but I definitely wouldn't spend the money on it.

We got one for Christmas and we hooked it up inside one of our cabinets. I wanted it hidden because it is so masculine and not very eye-catching. But, it does the job and it's nice to have all your chargers in one place....

Brilliant! All of my portable items in one place is something I need. I have seen a nicer one that had room for a PSP.

I just got one for Tom this past Christmas. I used to have the cell phone in the bedroom, wallet in the dining room, iPod in the living room. I saw it at the store and my eyes lit up! Plus, he thinks it makes him feel "grown up".

I have one! hahaha That's crazy. Yeah actually it does come in handy. My boyfriend and I have an Ipod, a PDA, an IPhone, a RAZR, and a Treo! So we thought it would be useful and it is! It's also a good place to keep our business cards and there is a little place on top we like to put our keys and spare change!

I don't have one, nor would I need one at this time... however, I do think it's a fabulous idea. What a good way to keep everything neat and tidy - and in one spot!

I just use the iphone so I don't need all three - its a phone, ipod and mail/internet. However I might need one for my husband.

just got one from santa! i'm excited to hook it up, but so far its still sitting in its box in the bedroom. mine looks very similar to the example... wish it was a lighter wood or white though.

I love my charging station from Pottery Barn. It's worth the organization and aesthetics. This one is a bit masculine, the one from PB is more gender friendly.

I love love love this! Right now, we have a shoebox labeled Charging Station that stores all of our cables and whatnot, but I think this little box could help us better organize, especially since we have the same phones and other electronics. Hopefully I can find one in a different finish though, or get one for cheap that I can repaint.

I agree, if it had a laptop station I'd love it a lot more! I have one of my own though - I find it muy helpful. xoxo

I asked for one for Christmas, because I HATE wires. But my S.O. doesn't like it for some reason. There's one at JC Penney's too that looks similar/nice and it's about $20.00

It's a good way to organize. I have found one and it costs lesser $40.00 at

I really like this product! They sell them at pottery barn. Very smart solution to all those pesky wires.

i just consolidated some gadgets by getting the iPhone (which is the raddest thing ever). I don't think I need this much ports, but maybe in the office for both mine and Brendans it would work. I like the idea tho!

Msdyanelk....Pottery Barn has some nice ones too...and they're not too masculine :) I could definitely use one of these!

We have one very similar to this, but the second level also has three divided charging slots. Works like a charm, and the middle lower section holds a 3x3 sticky pad and pencil, great for quick notes. (The station lives next to the regular phone.) As a bonus, it has helped my teen son keep track of his cell phone, and keep it charged. Well worth the $25 or so it cost!

great idea! i like to have things all in one spot so they are easy to find. my husband on the other hand likes to empty his pockets all over the apartment.

I don't have one of these. It looks pretty masculine! Great innovation but I'd prefer somthing maybe 1/2 this size, possibly acrylic, offered in a variety of colors to choose from.
