If you need to charge multiple devices at the same time without a lot of clutter, the Griffin PowerDock 5 ($99.99) is for you. The charging station also serves as a handy place to store all of your digital devices such as your iPhone, iPod, and iPad.
As you can see from the photograph, there are slots for as many as five devices. The unit does not come with any cables. You have to supply your own, which is fine, assuming you have your own USB cables.
While it says on the box that it’s intended for charging iOS devices, it will actually work with any USB chargeable device.
A nice consideration is that it is case friendly. The slots are wide enough to accommodate most cases so you don't have to go to the trouble of removing the case before charging in the cradle.
It automatically senses your power needs and will deliver up to 10 watts of power.
The suggested retail price is $99.99.
