The device's circular, polycarbonate body, which looks something like an enlarged hockey puck, sits on steel inserts and houses five USB charging ports under a discreet rubber top. The fact that it plugs in sideways can be a little awkward depending on the outlet, and you'll find charging speeds are slower when using all four USB ports at once because the total output is limited. The wide base and rubber feet also ensure that it doesn't slide around, and the USB ports are slightly angled upward, making it easy to plug in and unplug cables.
There are no frills here, just ten USB-A ports offering 2.4A each up to 12A in total for a maximum output of 60W. It's black, slightly textured, with the Amazon Basics logo on top. There's a long power cord supplied and a power switch on the side. It's relatively compact considering the number of ports, but it's also quite light and because the power cord plugs into the back it limits your placement options a bit. Still, if you need a lot of ports this is a good bet. Nomad USB Charging Hub Ports: five Output: 27W Cord: three point nine feet Nomad's USB charger takes the cake in terms of design. The device's circular, polycarbonate body, which looks something like an enlarged hockey puck, sits on steel inserts and houses five USB charging ports under a discreet rubber top. It draws a maximum of 27W from a 1.2-meter cable connected to a wall source and divides it among two high-power 2.4A ports and three standard 1A ports. (Nomad says they're compatible with all iPhones, iPads, and Android devices, but notes that they don't support rapid charging.) A handy ring of LEDs -- which dim automatically at night thanks to a built-in ambient light sensor -- glow orange when plugged-in devices are charging, and white when charged. The Nomad USB Charging Hub isn't cheap, but you'll be hard-pressed to find a more stylish charger in its price range. Zendure Travel Charger Ports: four Output: 45W Cord: None (plugs directly into outlet) We're impressed with the design of this durable USB charging hub, which also serves admirably as a travel adapter. It's compact and portable, with four USB ports on one side and fold-out prongs to plug into a wall outlet on the other. One of the ports is USB-C and supports Power Delivery up to 30W, so can charge anything from a MacBook to a Nintendo Switch. The other three USB-A ports can deliver up to 15W apiece. You also get two adapters in the box, which slot on securely to work with outlets in Europe and the U.K. The fact that it plugs in sideways can be a little awkward depending on the outlet, and you'll find charging speeds are slower when using all four USB ports at once because the total output is limited. Nonetheless, this USB charging hub is a great value. Sabrent Desktop USB Charger Ports: six Output: 60W Cord: five feet If you're looking for a USB charging hub with plenty of ports, then this desktop option from Sabrent is worth your consideration. It boasts six USB ports, each of which is rated at 2.4A, allowing for 12A total and 60W of simultaneous output. The wide base and rubber feet also ensure that it doesn't slide around, and the USB ports are slightly angled upward, making it easy to plug in and unplug cables. The top panel is aluminum and comes in either silver or black. It's not the most attractive hub on the market, and there's no QC support, but it is fairly small and cheap. RAVPower Desktop Charging Station Simon Hill/Digital Trends Ports: five Output: 60W Cord: five feet Here's a USB charging hub from a trustworthy name -- one that also happens to be a great deal. RAVPower's Charging Station has five USB ports. The single USB-C port supports Power Delivery, offering up to 45W for tablets or laptops. There are four additional USB-A ports that are rated at 2.4A each and you can charge using all ports simultaneously for a maximum output of 60W. It also comes with a detachable AC power cable, and there's a green LED that lights up when it's connected. This is a very compact charging station, so it's a good choice if you want something portable. It even has a handy silicon base to prevent it from sliding off your desk or table. Anker PowerPort four Ports: four Output: 40W Cord: None (plugs directly into outlet) This is going to be enough to meet most people's needs for a busy household. You get four USB ports, and Anker's PowerIQ and VoltageBoost technologies ensure that your device is charged as quickly as possible without exceeding the supported rate. The maximum output for a single port is 2.4A, with a total maximum rating of 8A and a combined output of 40W. It plugs directly into the wall with fold-out prongs that slot neatly away for travel. This is an efficient, durable, and portable option. The design is functional and there's a small, blue LED that lights up when it's plugged in. The nice thing about this is that you can plug into any port and get up to 2.4A. Unfortunately, there's no Qualcomm Quick Charge support. Aukey USB Charging Station Ports: six Output: 60W Cord: three point nine feet
