Our charging stations are primarily powered by Anker USB Chargers

Which Anker USB Charger Do You Need?
USB charging can be confusing. The industry is torn between adopting universal standards and creating unique features that let there new products stand out.
Despite the overwhelming technical bable used to refer to charging standards - the industry established safety standards which assure chargers and devices work together. Connecting phones, tablets, and cameras to an over or underpowered charger will cause no harm. An article at consumer reports about this topic is available HERE
When choosing a charger consider...
- How many devices you need to charge simultaneously,
- How long you expect to leave them attached to the charger
- How reliant you are on the fast charging options
- If you need a charger for unusually high demand devices like Macbook or Nexus SP / 5X
If you want to use your charger for extended periods - overnight or 1 -2 hour blocks of time.
Choose one of the "Original PowerPort" units.
Original PowerPort - 40 Watt 5 Port
5 Standard USB Charging Ports
Original PowerPort - 60 Watt 6 Port - for review click HERE
6 Standard USB Charging Ports
Our favorite of the 3 Original PowerPorts because it will supply full 2.4 amps to all 6 ports - thus providing top charging capacity even when all ports are being used. (this is not true of the 40 watt 5 port or the 60 watt 10 port unit they are slightly underpowered when all ports are used, but they will still charge nearly any set of devices when attached overnight)
Original PowerPort - 60 Watt 10 Port
10 Standard USB Charging Ports
If you are highly reliant upon the "Quick Charge" capacity available on some devices choose.
