Abstract

It has become imperative to find ways to organize different devices of varying functions and sizes. This problem was introduced to us through customers who believed the current designs on the market could use improvement, or through the lack of organization that they have when charging multiple devices. A solution is a modular concept with a base station that will include a wireless pad and a few charging cords. Additionally customers can purchase specialized add ons that fit into the base station. The housing station will seamlessly charge a plethora of devices including; smart-phones, smart-watches, and speakers in a centralized location; integrating wireless and tethered charging without the hassle of fraying and messy cords, lack of outlets, and slow charging. The housing of the charging station would be designed so that ordinary technology users can use their preexisting chargers and adapters or use new cords or wireless technology. Keeping all of the chargers in a stationery place will also increase the lifespan of the cables.
