Charging all my devices, and plugging in a lamp
I think it’s pretty obvious at this point that I have a million products. I have “gadgets and gizmos a plenty” and I actually use quite a few of them on a regular basis. That’s great in practice, but when they all need to be charged, that’s where the dilemma comes in. Could I use one or two plugs and charge them one after another? Yes. But do I want to be that patient? Absolutely not.
Further, I have found that in most areas where I want to plug in any of these devices, I already have devices plugged. For example, where I wanted to be able to charge my son’s iPad, a baby monitor, and more, I already had a lamp. My “catch-all” end table was dangerously close to becoming cluttered. If there is one thing I cannot stand, it’s clutter. With that being said, if there is any way to help me clear out a few cables or chargers here or there, I’m in.
That is when I found the Baseus USB C Charger 65W. This is more than just a USB charging hub — which I have plenty of. Baseus was smart enough to add in two standard AC outlets with their two USB-A and two USB-C ports. This makes a power strip that literally anything can be plugged into. What I’m used to having to do in the past is have a USB-A/C hub with a regular power strip as well. This works, but can get cluttered in certain areas. Having the Baseus USB C Charger helps clear these things up.
Now, I am able to have this run to my side table that has a lamp, and without needing to run extra cables, extensions, and the likes, I can plug in all of my devices — and lamps. This has not only cut down on the amount of clutter I have in my living room, but has also made it more likely to actually charge all of my devices.
Some incredibly helpful features that this charger has includes an angled, flat headed plug. This allows for you to be able to plug it into even the top outlet without blocking whatever is plugged in below. This charger has been surprisingly useful for my living room setup.
One thing that took a minute to figure out is the charging speeds of the different ports. I had to go onto the amazon link to figure out which ports were designed for which output. At first, I was pretty disappointed with the charging speeds. But then, I found out I simply had to swap the ports I was using to utilize each port how they were designed and then I was much happier. For example, I tried charging my son’s iPad via the bottom left USB-A port.
All around I am pretty pleased with this charger, and I am happy with the functionality it gives me — especially in such a small form factor!
