Just saw a supplier announce this which might be helpful for a gadget-rich family or office:

Should retail for around the $100-$130 price region.

Just got that email, might be better than my five port USB charger which stops charging when four devices are plugged into it i.e. two iPhone, iPad and Tab3.

Is it just me that would be worried at 21 Amps in a single device?

21A at 5v is only 100w, assiming you have 10 dead flat tablets connected at the same time.

The device itself won't be giving off 100w of heat, as most of the power should be forced into the attached device's batteries.

Still, you would not want 10 tablets and this stacked in a pile with no airflow (i.e. in a drawer).

Still think the Anker 40W 5-Port Desktop USB Charger ones are more economical. You could buy two and I think they'd be less than $100 shipped to your door.

true I failed to consider voltage...

Was thinking of the massive 32A distribution boxes but those would be 240V @ 32A

They do look very good.

My kids are charging their phones off a USB extension cable attached to the back of our Tivo, as the USB plugs on it are useless for anything else and the Tivo doesn't seem to be bothered by it.  I do want to de-clutter the entertainment cabinet though so either solution would do the job.  Local supply = local warranty support, though I would hope this simple device would have no reliability issues.
