Nice!
by kavlito (4 out of 5 stars)
January 17, 2016

Bought this for the obvious reason - to charge multiple devices in an organized, stylish fashion. 100% satisfied. I even bought 4 more for gifts. And they have a lot of great colors to choose from, which made it possible to tailor the gifts to the recipients favorite colors. The 'feel' quality is very good, doesn't feel too cheap, and the rubberized texture feels nice.

The reason I reduced a star is because the power adapter is HUGE. It is 4"Lx2"Wx1.5"H. It's bigger than my laptop power adapters. And they don't show this in the advertised product shots (I guess, for obvious reasons). For most people, that might not be a big deal (no pun intended) if you're plugging it into a wall socket that is hidden out of the way. But for me, it is plugged into a desktop power strip that required reorganization of my stuff to make it fit. The strip sits behind stuff, so it's not all that visible, but everything had to be moved 3 inches closer to me to accommodate this power brick. And it takes up 2 socket spaces. So keep that in mind when considering this product. But I really do like it.

Good idea, slightly flawed execution
by Chris W (2 out of 5 stars)

Originally, when Quirky was created I was really interested in how they created projects via crowd-sourcing ideas. I believe that this was one of those ideas. I wanted something to organize my bedside table as it was getting pretty overwhelming with cords and devices.

First the good:
1.) There's a dedicated high output USB slot for tablets and other devices that need that power
2.) The bands on the rear hold most of the shorter cords to the dock to eliminate the nest of wires in the rear.

Now the not so good:
1.) It's big - I feel like I have a pretty normal sized bedside table and it took up at least a third of it. That being said it does hold a phone and a tablet, so it needs to be big - but the rear seemed to be bigger than necessary.
2.) Those bands on the back are great for maintaining all of the excess cord, but if you're like me and you're using your device in bed while charging you really can't utilize those.
3.) It's fiddly to plug devices into their chargers. The channel at the bottom allows for all types of charging cords to come through but then you're stuck with a small amount of cord (assuming you used the bands to keep the cords under control) to plug into and then feed back through to stand your device against the arm. It's hard to describe and not a huge hassle but something I'm not a fan of on this "dock"
3.) If your device doesn't lean nicely then it's useless. I have an Apple Watch and there is no way you can lean the watch on this, I just ran the cord through the bottom and charge it in front of the dock; again, I knew this going in.

For me, I wanted this to help with the mess of cords a little more, but for the price it's a good way to dock odd sized items from different manufacturers (Think an Android phone and an iPad) semi-neatly. Personally, I would pay slightly more for a dock that was easier to plug things in and out of next time.

Perfect solution for multi devices
by Ridvan Ucar (5 out of 5 stars)

I'very happy with this, I think it'a perfect solution if you need a charging stationg for multi devices. I sometimes need a fifth line but 4 is a optimum number. I also combined with belkin short charging cables and they fit perfectly preventing long cable problem at the back. I like it very much.

AC Plug Adapter is Huge!!!
by Scott J (2 out of 5 stars)
November 16, 2014

What Quirky doesn't tell you is that this product has a HUGE AC plug adapter. The AC plug adapter is 4" X 2" X 1.5" and weighs almost a pound by itself. Make sure that you have the space for something this large hanging off your wall before purchasing...

I love the way this helps organize cords at our family ...
by English Teacher (4 out of 5 stars)

I love the way this helps organize cords at our family charging station. I saw it first at the Container Store, but found it for a better price on Amazon. Having several ports that provide higher power for ipads is great, but since the rack can't really hold an iPad and anything else, we still end up with iPads on the counter. It does reduce the number of outlets needed to provide a charging space for everything. It's sturdy and I expect we will use it for years.

Love this Quirky product
by DeenaS (5 out of 5 stars)

I've bought two of these. One sits on my night stand to power my phone, iPad, Kindle and wirless headphones. The other is at my office to power my wireless bluetooth, two iPads and my phone. Cords are hidden, power works great, stand looks good and everything is charging in an organized manner.

Frustrated!
by Maureen Mercer Wali (1 out of 5 stars)
June 18, 2016

It looks like it would be useful but I can't get it to rotate to its open position. I am hopeful I will get an answer to my question posted to the community. I do not want to break it and it seems like it should be easier to open /look like the picture but it won't rotate. There aren't any instructions if there is some magic button to push. Frustrated! I have other Quirky stuff and like it.

This is the perfect device, and it looks really nice to boot
by David Nelms (5 out of 5 stars)

Some people have mentioned problems with it not being deep enough. I've charged iPads, iPad minis, iPhones, and iPods (we are an Apple family in case you were wondering) and never once had anything fall. This is the perfect device, and it looks really nice to boot. 1 star off for the high cost.

The one thing I'll agree with that others have said is that the power brick is quite large, but it hides neatly behind the charger for me, so no issue here.

Works as Designed
by Robert (4 out of 5 stars)

Good product, however the power converter is quite large and I think a better design would have been to include the converter with the unit rather than separate. It does work as designed.

Excellent purchase.

Not only does it hide the wires well, but it also doesn't give you a heart attack when your device vibrates (a problem we've had with other products). Excellent purchase.
