Whenever we get a charging device, we like to start with the math. Limitless Innovations sent their ChargeHub 7-port USB charging station; its power transformer is rated for 44 Watts, roughly 1.2 Amps per port if they were ever all pulling down all they could; in real life, with most ports pulling more nominal draws, some of the ports could pull as much as 2.4A. That’s good service, a lot better than we’ve seen from many USB power products. With this, of course, there’s a plus in having 7 available power ports all in one place. Bottom line: the Limitless Innovations ChargeHub offers USB charging to the seventh power.
The team at iPhone Life Magazine just gave our ChargeHub a perfect 5 star rating. See below for the article or check it out at iPhone Life Magazine’s website.
When it comes to powering our multiple devices, it seems there’s no end to the amount of cords and power outlets needed to keep all the batteries charged. Seeking a solution to this disorganization, I gave ChargeHub ($59.99) a try for myself after hearing that a box the size of a hockey puck could handle seven USB chargers at any given time. That means more than just my iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, but also my Bluetooth headphones (one for sports, one for work), activity trackers, battery packs, and more can be charged. So, can ChargeHub really do it all?
ChargeHub is available in both a round and square edition with multiple color options. I received a white, circular charging hub with the super value pack ($89.99). Upon unboxing ChargeHub, the first thing I noticed were the various, short charging cords included with the value pack so that you don’t need all of your own longer cords unless desired. This I found particularly convenient, because I can leave the included cord plugged into the hub and take my Apple cord with me for travel or general portability.
I can see where the ChargeHub would be ideal for a family. You could easily set up a single charging station for everyone, and it would be an easy way to limit phone or iPad time having the only charging source in a family room where devices could be stationed during family dinners or get togethers. The package also included a car charger if you prefer to keep your ChargeHub in your vehicle. The top of the charging hub has the company logo; however, on the ChargeHub website you can make custom labels with your own photo, logo, or artwork.
I’ve been using my ChargeHub at work for a few weeks now, and I’ve already become spoiled by the ease of having an open charging slot at all times. ChargeHub was recently at CES in Las Vegas as well and was awarded as one of our Best of CES 2016 winners by iPhone Life editors. After my experience with the ChargeHub, I can certainly see why. It’s a simple product that makes life with technology a little easier.
