    A plethora of chargers
    I suppose we are an Apple household. We own a few of their devices, and each one comes with it's own charger.
    If you line them all up in a row, they take up an awful lot of power sockets. And then there are the cables from the charger to the device.
    Has anyone out there come up with a neat solution to lots of chargers and a spaghetti of cabling?
    TIA

    I would say that a powered USB hub would fit your requirements.

    I had a quick look around the web, and I can't find a powered hub that is capable of what I need.
    I would like to allow for charging 2 iPhones and an iPad. The iPad alone needs 2.1Amps, and the hubs I saw specifically said they didn't cater for iPads.
    Thanks for your help.

    Many will not say that they cater to iPads though they may work. I have a hub similar to. It is from the same company. I have it connected to the USB port on my Time Capsule. It charges my iPad (1st ten) though I think the screen says it is not charging. I have not tried charging multiple iPhones and iPad at the same time but it might be worth a call.

    That company also produces some 7 port industrial hubs but they run around $200.00 US IIRC.

    I use a couple of these - works on the iPad 1 - can't say with the newer ones.

    You can check the link on that page for the newer model which specifies it handles 2.1 amps.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
