  • Ports: 6th
  • Output: 60W
  • Electric wire: 5 feet

What allows you to charge six devices at the same time offers a maximum output of 60W – 2.4A per port, up to 12A total – and yet is fully portable so you can put it in your pocket or in your pocket ? This USB charging station from RAVPower. Small but powerful, it keeps your devices charged on the go or at home and comes with a long charging cable. If you’re not into the black option, it’s also available in navy blue or white – and their consistently positive reviews make it well worth the money.

AmazonBasics 6-Port USB Charger

  • Ports: 6th
  • Output: 60W
  • Electric wire: 5 feet

There are no frills here, just six USB-A ports with 2.4 A each, a total of up to 12 A for a maximum output of 60 W. It’s black, lightly structured and has the AmazonBasics logo on top. A long power cord is supplied and a power switch on the side. It’s relatively compact when you consider the number of ports, but it’s also pretty light. However, because the power cord is plugged into the back, your placement options will be somewhat limited. However, if you need a lot of ports this is a good choice. If we had to say something negative, it has a really bright blue light that glows when it’s plugged in even when you’re not using the USB ports – so it’s not one for the bedside table.

Vogek 6-port USB charger

The Vogek Multi-Port USB Charger Hub is useful, but also a cute and elegant device in fashionable metallic colors, with which up to six devices can be charged at full speed at the same time. It’s compact enough to fit easily in a backpack or briefcase for meetings or travel, and looks great in your home too. The 4.65-foot power cord is a useful length for any room. The device’s intelligent charging technology identifies each device and its charging needs, so each port delivers just the right amount of power, while a built-in LED indicator keeps track of whether the charger is properly connected to a power source. The non-slip silicone rubber circle underneath keeps the device steady to avoid damaging the furniture. The device is UL FCC CE RoHS certified with 110 V to 240 V input for worldwide use. It is available in black, blue or black / silver.

Wyness 6-port desktop charging station

  • Ports: 6th
  • Output: 30W
  • Electric wire: 5 feet

  • Ports: 5
  • Output: 48W
  • Electric wire: 4 feet

This versatile charging station offers a USB-C connection with a rated output of 3 A, a USB-A connection for Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 and three USB-A connections with a rated output of 2.4 A each. The total maximum is 9 A. at 48W combined power. It’s a cube design with connectors on top and a rubber base that prevents it from sliding around on your desktop. This isn’t one for the bedside table as each port has a green LED, but it should come in handy for sharing a cargo space at work or maybe in the kitchen at home. It’s sturdy and, aside from the unfortunate Xcentz logo, looks pretty low-key.

Zendure travel charger

Zendure travel charger
  • Ports: 4th
  • Output: 45W
  • Electric wire: None (plug directly into socket)

We’re impressed with the design of this durable USB charging hub, which also works great as a travel adapter. It’s compact and portable, with four USB ports on one side and fold-out prongs for plugging into a wall socket on the other. One of the ports is USB-C and supports a power supply of up to 30 W. So you can charge anything from a MacBook to a Nintendo Switch. The other three USB-A ports can deliver up to 15W each. The scope of delivery also includes two adapters that can be safely used for sockets in Europe and Great Britain. The fact that they plug in on the side can be a bit of a hassle depending on the outlet, and you’ll find that charging speeds are slower when using all four USB ports at the same time as overall performance is limited. That said, this USB charging station is a great value.

Sabrent desktop USB charger

  • Ports: 6th
  • Output: 60W
  • Electric wire: 5 feet

If you’re looking for a USB charging hub with lots of ports, this desktop option from Sabrent is worth considering. It has six USB ports, each of which is rated for 2.4 A and enables a total of 12 A and 60 W of simultaneous power. The wide base and rubber feet also ensure that they don’t slide around. The USB ports are angled slightly upwards, making it easy to plug in and unplug cables. The top is made of aluminum and is available in either silver or black. It’s not the most attractive hub out there and it doesn’t have QC support, but it’s pretty small and cheap.

Anker PowerPort 4

  • Ports: 4th
  • Output: 40W
  • Electric wire: None (plug directly into socket)

This will be enough to meet most people’s needs for a busy household. You get four USB ports, and Anker’s PowerIQ and VoltageBoost technologies ensure your device charges as quickly as possible without exceeding the supported rate. The maximum power for a single port is 2.4 A with a maximum total power of 8 A and a combined power of 40 W. It is plugged directly into the wall with fold-out prongs that can be neatly pushed away for travel. This is an efficient, durable, and portable option. The design is functional and there is a small blue LED that lights up when plugged in. The nice thing is that you can plug into any port and get up to 2.4A. Unfortunately, there is no support for Qualcomm Quick Charge.

Aukey USB charging station

  • Ports: 6th
  • Output: 30W
  • Electric wire: 3.9 feet

This USB charging hub has two ports that support Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 standard, which is clearly marked orange. There are another four ports that go up to 2.4A with Aukey’s AiPower technology, so they determine what rate you want to charge when you plug in your device. That gives you a maximum output of 9.6A and 60W. There is a detachable power cord that is 3.9 feet long, which should be enough for most people. There’s also a little green LED on the side to indicate it’s plugged in and ready to go.

Powkey power bank with socket

Powkey power bank with socket
  • Ports: 4 plus 2 sockets
  • Output: 200W

Powkey’s power bank isn’t particularly pretty, but it’s very powerful. In addition to four USB ports, it also offers two AC power outlets for charging larger devices when a USB device just doesn’t work. We are fans of the LED lighting system, which shows how much power is left in the charger. Also note the two available charging input options, one for a conventional socket connection and an alternative for solar energy. As you can imagine, this power bank is especially good for fishing and camping trips that require multiple devices to be charged. However, you will need to spend at least several hours charging this bank. So make sure you allow enough time.
