What’s the best way to charge multiple USB devices — particularly multiple phones and/or multiple tablets? A multi-device charging hub like the Zentree from GELID.
I know there’s a high-demand for these types of charging hubs because a roundup of 10 of the best that I made a few years ago remains one of the top articles on DailyTekk. And that makes sense: the number of phones and tablets in American homes continues to multiply. I’ve personally got two phones and a tablet that I use frequently — and that’s not even counting my wife’s phone and tablet. And the devices just continue to stack up for families with kids.
And as we continue to make our homes smarter the list of rechargeable USB devices in them is going to continue to grow. My Apple TV remote charges via a lightning cable. New Vizio TVs are shipping with phablets for remotes. Smartwatches are on the rise. You get the picture.
So charging multiple devices as conveniently as possible is a big deal.
Among the many solutions that exist in the wild, the Zentree uniquely appealed to me because of it’s clean look and unique design. It’s comprised mainly of a soft green silicon top which sits on a white plastic base. The overall aesthetic is clean and fresh and evokes a modern, plant-like feel.
