In the early 14th century, a floor globe would have looked like an alien contraption because Copernicus hadn’t convinced everyone that the world is round just yet. Now, such things are common and every library has at least a basic one, and for the technologically inclined libraries, they may even have one that could tell the time and temperature of the places on the globe. A mere 500 years after finding out that the world doesn’t revolve around the earth, progress has certainly made a lot of leaps, and along with those leaps came portability, and portable chargers.

There’s a charger for your mobile phone, another for your MP3 (4 or 5), yet another for your digital camera, and then there’s a possibility that you have a portable game console, and the next thing you know, you’re struggling with a snake’s nest of wires. Not to mention putting yourself in danger of the possibility of blowing a fuse, literally and figuratively.

Modern science is supposed to make life easier, isn’t?

All the Eggs in One Basket

The solution to that tangled spaghetti of chargers is the electronics charging station, a stationery port that has only ONE wire, yet you can charge up to three electronic devices all at the same place and it can save you a lot of time because you don’t have to wait for one gadget to be fully charged before you can use that outlet again, or save you from having to reach in to those tight places for other outlets.

An electronics charging station can look like the space age gadget that it is, sleek metal or smooth plastic or it can be disguised as a night stand organizer, made of wood or leather, and can have many useful little drawers that can help organize other little gadgets on your night table or desk, like pens, reading glasses, coins, or even paper clips.

To add to the utility of this charming port, you can get an electronics charging station with a night light in its design, or a vacuum cleaner (yes, a vacuum cleaner). To appeal to the more aesthetically inclined market, one can get a hand painted port that looks anything but an electronics charging station, or one with pastel polka dots for the younger generation, or a nice warm mahogany to blend with your desk and leather desk set.

Wireless Gadgets

There are useful gadgets like the wireless home weather stations that will not take up an extra outlet from your electronics charging station. A home weather station is a lot like a digital alarm clock, but it can tell you the weather inside and outside with forecast icons (clouds, sun, sun behind the clouds, etc.), through sensors strategically placed around your home. It can have up to three sensors feeding the display panel, and a radio-controlled date and time display. Some even have moon phase displays, and clothing suggestions, in digital or full color, or even an animated display.
