ALLDOCK review
Posted on 5-Aug-2015 11:17. | Tags Filed under: Reviews.


It happens to everyone... We have more devices that need USB charging than we have space on a desk. And the cables. And the number of chargers with different space requirements. The ALLDOCK USB charging station is a beautiful way of getting around this problem.

The ALLDOCK system is the outcome of a Kickstarter campaign that turned into a success product.

Basically it's a docking station that can keep your devices together, charged and accessible. It is manufactured from a variety of materials, including ABS plastic (the one I have here), bamboo and beautiful walnut wood, to fit any environment and decor.





Inside there's a four port USB charger (or six port for the larger version) capable of an output per port of 5V and a max of 2,400mA. And all these ports can be used simultaneously, with different currents. When using good quality USB cables you will notice your devices (smartphones, tablets, eBook readers) charging fast. And depending on where you slot the device you can keep using it (or if you have the option perhaps have a screensaver with up-to-date information showing up while it is powered on).

The slots are wide and even the medium size one can accommodate a good sized tablet. What I did notice though was that some tablets may have the USB port too close to the edge, so it may not align well with the holes where the USB cable comes out. This is true for one specific tablet I tried with (an old ASUS Android tablet) - I even thought of reversing the top of the ALLDOCK but it is not reversible - the cover feet are design to fit in a specific position. Never mind, it still worked for that tablet - just a bit tight close to the edge.



Obviously I didn't have this problem with smartphones - or any other device really. Because you see, you can pull the USB cables through the slots so even if a device doesn't fit you can still take advantage of the charge's 5V 2,400mA port - handy for devices such as rechargeable mouse, keyboard, Bluetooth speakers, etc. Anything with a USB port really.

A nice solution for the tangle of cables in the modern house.
