A few years ago, I was at a convention and I saw a device called a ChargeHub. It is one of the brands of Limitless Innovations, and they also make cool things like the CableHub, some personal cable organizers.
The ChargeHub X3 3 Port USB Charger
I have recently reviewed a very similar product from Nomad with their 3-Port USB Hub. This particular ChargeHub X3 has 2.4 amps per port, unlike the previously mentioned one with 2.1 Amps on one and 1 Amp for each of the others.
So this really can charge three different USB devices quickly. What you do is you plug it into the wall, and then plug it into the Hub itself for 25 watts of total power. It’s pretty much as simple as that, but did you expect anything more complicated?
It definitely belongs on any desk or office, and what is interesting is that it comes in eight colors: Black, White, Red, Blue, Pink, Purple, Orange, and Green. You can even design some special photo of yourself on the free online DesignStudio. You can find it on the ChargeHub site for $39.99.
The ChargeHub X5 5 Port USB Charger
Well, it is pretty obvious what the difference between the X3 and the X5 is: one of them has more USB ports. Not only does the X5 have 5 ports, but it has 40 watts of total power.
Everything else is pretty much the same. Like it has the plug-in as well as the DesignStudio for you to put a picture in. It is also available in the same eight colors. It is available on the ChargeHub site for $49.95
Then there are some great accessories, like this Travel and Storage Case for the ChargeHub. All you need to do is zip it open, and it has 2 dividers, as well as places for the ChargeHub and the accessories. It is available for about $19.99 on the ChargeHub site.
I’ll go ahead and talk about the other accessories that I have to review, the 4-part Micro to USB Value Pack for $23.99. Then there is the USB-C to USB-A Charge Cable, and the Lightning to USB cable for $7.99.

Get Charging With The ChargeHub X7 USB Supercharger
Sometimes all you want is something simple that does one thing and does it well. So when it comes to charging up a smartphone or tablet or any number of USB power inputting devices, simple is best. But simple doesn’t mean you have to put up with things when patience is lacking. That’s why the ChargeHub X7 USB Supercharger is sitting on your desk or night table or wherever. Because it knows what to do with these devices — up to 7 of them at the same time too
The X7 is safe to use so lets get that out of the way first because safety is important. It’s UL/cUL Listed, has been tested to comply with FCC Standard Part 15, Energy Level VI Efficiency and is RoHS Compliant for optimum quality, safety and durability. Again what all that means is that it’s safe to use, and that its 48 watts of power can do the job without being bothered by any inconsistencies.
Now what the job entails is letting you plug in up to 7 devices so they can all share in getting a recharge simultaneously. The X7 sits where you put it and is plugged into a wall outlet, so yes it’s portable in that you can take it to other place with or without the optional charging carry case (or use it in a car with the proper adapters), but no it’s not waterproof or designed to be used on the trail.
There’s two things added just for show — make that as a way to make it visually more appealing. The first is that the top has a clear lens where an insert can be placed. Software for doing this is included. There’s also more than just the blue glow showing that the X7 has power: the underside puts out its own glow which is intensity adjustable.
The ChargeHub X7 USB Supercharger helps to keep all your cables in one place so the frustration of looking for them can be eliminated. That alone could be worth it’s $59.99 retail cost, but obviously it’s the charging that it does that makes for the value in having it.
ChargeHub 3 Port USB Charger Reviewed in Weekender Extended Magazine
The Weekender Extended recently reviewed our ChargeHub X3 among other top Electronic Gadgets in the industry. They touted the X3’s unique ability to charge multiple mobile devices with only using one outlet! ChargeHub X3 is ideal product for travel to hotels where outlets can often be limited.

In my family, there are a total of six iOS devices: A pair of iPhones and iPads for the wife and me, and another pair of iPads for the kiddos. That means we’re often scrambling to find AC adapters and spare outlets when it comes time to charge everything.
Enter ChargeHub, billed as “the power strip for the 21st century,” a bold claim that’s more than marketing hype. After all, for most smartphone and tablet users, it doesn’t make sense to use wall outlets and traditional power strips with bulky AC adapters when a few simple USB cables get the job done.
That’s exactly what this is: An inch and a half tall, 3.5-inch round polycarbonate puck that provides multiple USB ports from a single AC outlet. Weighing only half a pound, the charger accepts dual voltage 110-240V input, making it compact enough for international travel.
ChargeHub is available in three models, distinguished by the number of ports and how much power they output. The three-port, 25-watt X3 ($39.99 MSRP; $30 on Amazon) and the five-port, 40-watt X5 ($50; available on Amazon), but there’s also a seven-port, 44-watt X7 ($60; available on Amazon).
The six-foot, two-prong AC cable at the back of the unit is detachable, and conveniently includes a Velcro strap to reduce the amount of excess cables. That doesn’t help when plugging in multiple devices with stock Lightning cables, but the company sells 3.5-inch flat cables designed for this purpose; unfortunately, none are included with the X3 or X5, but a pack of four sells for $24.
ChargeHub makes up for that stinginess by offering the ability to customize. Each model is available in your choice of eight colors: Black, white, red, blue, pink, purple, orange or green. (X7 is also available in clear, or with a square design.) But the customization doesn’t stop there.
Users are encouraged to swap out the company’s logo on the top with one of your own, courtesy of a web-based Design Studio. Here you can add photos (your own or from a large image gallery), add text, and export a PDF file to print at home. It’s a fairly basic, Adobe Flash-powered affair, but gets the job done.
Otherwise, ChargeHub delivers where it counts. Each port is capable of pushing a maximum of 2.4A for the fastest charging speeds currently available with iOS devices. The hardware is solid and well-built, and I liked the rubberized ring around the bottom that keeps the unit from sliding around on a kitchen counter.

We Review the Mother of all Phone Chargers: The ChargeHub
Remember the good old days of flip phones? You know, those indestructible pieces of mobile tech with a seemingly everlasting battery? Well, those days are gone. Nowadays, you’re lucky if your phone is at 50% before lunchtime. Probably because we use our phones as our personal radios, TVs, cameras, game consoles and, oh yeah, phones.
Compounding this problem, the old-fashioned phone charger won’t always be the solution to your dwindling battery. After all, in these primitive times, there are only so many outlets handy. Well, this inspired me to try out the ChargeHub.
As the name implies, the ChargeHub is a hub for charging. Just thought I should explain that. The device comes in a number of different styles, even allowing you to implement your own photos into the design. You can also customize the amount of USB ports for your individual ChargeHub, anywhere from three to seven. Additionally, the device comes with USB cables for each individual port.
One thing that definitely sticks out about the ChargeHub is the design. With all of its USB cables plugged in, the device has a charming octopus-like appearance. This design also allows for numerous devices to charge at once, perfect for a boardroom or party setting. Unless you’ve got seven devices to charge yourself. No judgement here.
But let’s get to the most important part of the ChargeHub: providing your phone with power. The device touts its ability to charge devices quickly with a 2.4 amp max output for every port. And, I must say, it delivers on this claim. The first time I plugged my phone in, I was (quite pleasantly) surprised to see that it was back to 100% in record time. Which could only mean one thing: time to unplug it, burn some battery life by watching some Netflix, and repeat the cycle.
From the design to the execution, I really enjoyed using the ChargeHub. In the current world of phone battery famine and overcrowded outlets, I think the ChargeHub is ideal for charging multiple devices in a quick fashion. And, as somebody that plays way too much Pokemon Go and is constantly listening to podcasts, I could definitely use the extra juice.
MacSources reviewed our ChargeHub accessories that help keep you charged on the go. They had great things to say about how useful and handy these products are to have around especially if you’re a frequent traveller!

ChargeHub was recently featured in a Tech Review by Geekscape. They had a lot of great things to say about how simple and effective this product is! Read the full review at the Geekscape website here.
Welcome to the world of the ChargeHub! If you aren’t familiar with them, they create these things that you can plug in and get more USB ports than you had before. Yes, ’tis the season, and the ChargeHub X7 could be the perfect gift for…anyone.
The reason why is because everyone now has a whole bunch of electric devices, and everyone needs some way to power them. The ChargeHub X7 is a 7 Port USB Universal Charging Station, a place where you can just plug it in and plug in your smartphone, tablet, Bluetooth headset, Bluetooth earbuds, and anything else you want to do.
In fact, this particular device is so simple to use and so useful, I am not certain if I should even write about it anymore. I do admire how the ChargeHub comes in a circle or square shape, and when it is plugged into the wall, it exudes a lovely glow. Oh, it also comes in many colors.
You should be able to purchase the ChargeHub X7 for $59.99 on the company website, and it comes with a Micro USB CableLinx.
