Review: One Power Strip for A/C & USB, Ideal for the Conference Room

Unfortunately, not all of our devices can charge wirelessly; so as long as we need A/C and USB ports, we will need a product like the ChargeHub Powerstation 360 ($59.99) that Limitless Innovations gave me the accessory to try. This is a well-built, serious power strip that addresses the deficiencies most competitors forget about.

First, it has six well-spaced A/C outlets and four USB-A ports. Even if you have large power bricks this should accommodate up to six of them, given the spacing. The four USB-A ports are close together, but that should be okay for most use cases. I would have liked to see some USB-C ports, as that is coming on strong.

Powerstation

The ChargeHub Powerstation 360 comes in a choice of colors, namely black, white, gray or putty, so it should fit in well in most offices. In fact, I could see it being used in the center of a conference room table which will allow all attendees to plug in for those marathon meetings! It's even wall-mountable, should you wish to save desk space, but if you keep it on a table, it should stay put thanks to the solid design and rubber footpads which will protect your surface.

Pros

  • Six well-spaced A/C outlets
  • Four USB-A ports
  • Choice of colors
  • Wall mountable
  • Solid, heavy-duty design, well-suited for stationary use

Cons

  • Six-foot cable could be longer

Final Verdict

If you need to charge a bunch of devices, particularly a mix of USB and A/C devices, with large power bricks, the ChargeHub Powerstation 360 from Limitless Innovations should meet your needs.
