Looking for the Best Charging Stations to help keep your family’s devices charged but organized? We’ve got you! Here’s what we learned and found when trying to find the best device organization solution for our family.
Finding Charging Stations for Phones
I don’t know what your technology situation looks like, but our 4 kids are growing. Our 2 teenagers have phones and our younger 2 boys have iPads. In addition to that we have a plethora of “other things” that need charging. We have multiple external batteries (phone bricks – as my husband likes to call them,) a Nintendo Switch, an older iPad, a Kindle – the list goes on and on.
Thank you Marie Kondo, we threw out a bunch of charging cords that didn’t work, recycled devices we no longer used and tidied up. (If you KonMari – make sure you get a LOL with our Marie Kondo memes!) That said, now we have a bunch of devices that we need to find a phone charging station for. So off I set off to find the best cell phone charging stations to organize devices, cords and create some zen to our newly purged home.
Best Cell Phone Charging Stations
Well – come to find out, on my search the the best cell phone charging stations, I realized that what I actually needed was to find charging stations for multiple devices. It’s not all phones that need to be charged, so – multiple devices charging stations became my new target.
Charging Stations for Multiple Devices
So off to find charging stations for multiple devices. Here is what I found. Hoping that these can help with a technology and device organization issue that you may have. If you have multiple devices and are needing a charging station for multiple devices – these are perfect.
Valet Phone Charging Station
Next, let’s look at a valet phone charging station. I really liked the looks of this valet phone charging station, it looks very Pottery Barn! While this may not be optimal for charging iPads or other tablets and devices (see below for more!)- this is a great practical approach if you have a few phones to charge and want them kept neat.
Something to note is that this phone charging station is a valet – phone organizer. While it’s great if you don’t have bigger devices, you will need to purchase a power strip with USB ports, in addition to the organizer. Here is a good option for a multi-port USB power strip.
This shows you how nice it looks, and would make a great place to keep your keys!

Our Charging Station Solution
Let’s face it. A pile of electronics, just ain’t pretty. (See, a small pile of my kids’ devices – who knows where the other things were!)
Here is the charging station solution that we’ve adapted. The designated charging station place in our home is on a wall build-in. I wanted somewhere that I could find all of the iPads and phones quickly, but it needed to hide the devices since this could be the first eye sore you see when you look into our living room!
I found this basket at an estate sale. It was tall and wide enough to store the devices. I am contemplating cutting a hole out for cable management. That sounds super organized and not me, but who knows – may surprise you and myself in 2019! hahaha
To charge the device, I am using a multi USB power strip. It is kept behind the basket. Looking at the build-in, the basket disguises the devices well and tastefully works with the room decor. This is a major mom win for me! I know where the devices are, since there is now a designated charging station spot. AND it’s not ugly. SO many things I have had to compromise and deal with for sanity but having the devices look neat is NOT one of those things I have to compromise on anymore!
(Now if you want to talk about the list of things, like the numerous TOTES of cords that my husband is keeping, just in case we need – we can totally dish on that but not now. Just kidding, husband – I love you, and your 3 totes of misc cords.)
If you need to charge multiple devices, this solution from HiTrend would work well.
Nightstand Charging Station
Last, I thought about the nightstand. While it can be easily piled with books and medicine bottles (again, no judgement!) – let’s see what we can do about our devices.
This nightstand charging station is the perfect bedroom organization solution for charging multiple devices. I have an iPhone, Amazon Kindle and an Apple watch that need to be charged regularly.
This little stand has really upped my nightstand organization, allowing me to have all of my devices charging in an organized manner. This requires the purchase of a multiple USB power strip. Here is an option that should work well.
Organizing Your Devices
In closing, I hope you enjoy our best charging station finds! Also hope that this gives you some direction in your management of charging cords and charging cables and multiple devices. I know with kids, any organization can be a win. You can do this, mama!
