Chances are you own a variety of electronic devices, including a smartphone, tablet, Bluetooth earbuds, or a smartwatch. If this is the case, you probably have a number of tangled charging cords lying on your nightstand or office desk. Ready for an upgrade?
Charging stations are typically more durable than flimsy USB charging cables, can often charge multiple devices simultaneously, are easy to use, and may even elevate a room’s decor with an appealing design. Best of all, you can eliminate the charging cables littering your space.
There are many stylish charging stations on the market; While some have a subtle look, others make a statement. Additionally, there are three main types: flat versions, stands, and ones that double as lamps. You’ll find multiple options for each style below. Furthermore, keep in mind that some products are lumped together with wireless charging stations but still require a charging cable to operate. However, these "charging stands" tend to hide the cable and sport a design that blends in with your existing decor.
1. Floral pattern
Beginning with some flat versions, this charging station has two gorgeous floral pattern options, each sold for $60 on Case-Mate.
2. Natural stone
For $69.99, you can purchase this natural stone charger from Target, which comes in seven options: black, cream, wood, and white marble, along with dark lava stone, travertine, and sandstone.
