Ok, this isn't really pc related, but I'm sure it's an issue many of you face every day. I have a PDA/GPS, cell, bluetooth headset and blackberry. I use each every day, which means every night I have to plug all four devices in to charge. Does anyone know of some kind of charging station that would house all four power adapters neatly and allow me to charge all four devices from one outlet? Is there some kind of travel charger that would let me plug all four devices in to charge at once? Such a hassle taking all four adapters every time I travel.

Thanks

Well, the problem you run into is that most of those devices will use a different shaped plug for each device. I think there are adapter kits available at places like Best Buy or other electronic stores, but finding one with ALL those adapters will likely be as bulky as just taking your stock chargers.

BTW - Why on earth do you need a PDA and a cell phone in addition to your Blackberry. The blackberry can perform all the functions of those other two, so you really only need the one device instead of 3.

a power strip that can handle all four wall wart changers
would work. hard to find. there are extension cords
that have recepticles on the end of a 1 ft.extension
so a bunch of chargers of all size could fit.

all those devices take different voltages, currents
so it would be hard to have one charging unit.
a person skilled in electronics could design and
build one. for that effort easier to live with the
seperate units.

The PDA I use is actually my GPS device. I don't use it for anything besides GPS. It's a Pharos 525 unit that has the GPS built right in. I don't use the blackberry for a phone. The settings and controls for the phone aren't intuitive and easy to change on the fly. Things like changing the ringer volume are more than five clicks away, so it's too hard to do throughout the day.

I found this thing, but it only holds three devices....

There's also this that will hold four, but it looks like my wife's jewelry box:

Yep, that's exactly what I've been looking for! I can't believe someone hasn't thought of a solution for this before.

Thanks!
