Wondering how others charge their USB accessories all together.

I have 5 accessories I need to charge at once. Two thunderbolt lights, garmin 510, iphone, and HRM wrist strap. Switching them between the USB outlet on my laptop individually is a pain to remember so I bought a USB power hub to do it all at once. The hub has its own power source. Something with the hub and amount of power it was getting fried all my accessories (got them replaced luckily).


Anyone have a convenient solution?

Why not just use wall outlet adapters? The Garmin 510 comes with one stock. The iPhone comes with one stock. I assume you have more than just one outlet plug in your home?

Might be at work. I know my desk has a grand total of one spare socket once my phone, monitor, lamp, docking station and second laptop are all plugged in....... Luckily the docking station has 6 or 8 USB ports, and the monitor has another 3 or 4.

There are companies like Plugable that have multi-port USB docing stations that can support multiple iPads and the like, http://plugable.com/products. If you are US based take a look at Newegg for USB Charging Stations.
