Charging a house full of mobile devices means dealing with a lot of cables and wires. FamilyCharger is a cool accessory that can power up to five devices in one go with just one integrated cable. That’s just the simple clean solution you need for your home.
FamilyCharger is basically a sturdy cable with a braided black and silver nylon design that is not only beautiful to look at but is also highly durable.
ElevationLab also offers a couple of silicon cable management mounts that let you can install it anywhere you want, even up a bookshelf, according to the developers.
One of the problems with most multi-charge cords is that they share a single USB port and therefore charge very slowly. FamilyCharger sports an independent copper to each connector, allowing dedicated power to flow to each connection.
FamilyCharger has a small footprint. Not only can you charge all devices in one place without cord clutter, but it also takes up just a fraction of the size of multi-charging docks. You can charge five devices at a time using just one plug on a power strip or outlet.
FamilyCharger comes with 3 Lightning, 1 MicroUSB, and 1 USB-C connector. The array of connectors makes it convenient to charge almost anything. However, if you’re hoping to charge a Macbook, we suggest you use a dedicated Apple charger instead because it can output much higher wattage.
- Connectors: 3 Lightning, 1 MicroUSB, 1 USB-C
- Power supply: 52W
- MFi (Made for iPhone, iPad, iPod) certified
- Input: 100-240v – 50/60Hz, 1.5A
- Plug: US 2-prong power cord to C7 connector on power supply. Other options available for international customers.
- Each connector gets up to 12W power
- MicroUSB supports QuickCharge 3.0 up to 18W
FamilyCharger is a handy accessory that can truly make life better. It is a simple, yet highly functional cord that can take the hassle out of charging multiple devices. Coming with a 9ft long cable and mounts, the charger offers the added convenience of setting it up at anywhere you want. Plus, it delivers full dedicated charging to each device, so there is no question of slow charging.
This is also a great option for people who still have devices that do not support wireless charging, like iPad, tablets and older smartphones.
One thing you won’t like with this charger is that you won’t be able to use your device while it is charging. If that is important to you, you may not find much value in this.
FamilyCharger also comes with a one-year warranty and 30-day return policy.
You can pick up FamilyCharger for $75 with the power adapter or without the power adapter for $50.
