Looks good

By Untechsavvy

Am giving this as a gift to a disorganized person, so don't know yet how dependable it is. However, it is attractive and well designed so that different sized devices will fit in nicely.

Griffin PowerDock 5 Charging Station

By Jaime Kerry

The charging station does what it’s supposed to do. You will find it helpful and well worth your money if you have a wide range of mobile gadgets. It charges your gadgets simultaneously and at a rate as they would when plugged in to a wall socket. My iPad mini, which reaches full charge in about 6 hours or so on a power outlet, gets around the same charge time in the Griffin PowerDock 5.

The build of this device is also noteworthy. The Plexiglass allows you to use your gadget while it is charging. It also organizes a wide range of devices from the nano to the iPad. The dividers are nicely spaced out from one another to make sure that even encased iPads or iPhones will fit in. The dividers also feel solid and durable.

At 9 by 6 inches, the charging station can sit nicely on any standard-size desk. Just be sure to keep the side with the cables away from you because they can look untidy. The dock also has a power status to indicate which is charging and not. All in all I find this a good product and would recommend this to a friend.

Really useful and convenient Power Dock from Griffin

By Don Pritchett

Nice to have this Griffin PowerDock. It brings convenience to our household of about 8 or so mobile devices, phones and tablets both. Before this, the kids usually fight over wall sockets to see whose phone is going to get plugged in first. We even turn on the living room iMac sometimes just to get a charge, which is something really wasteful. So I got this power dock from Griffin and problem solved.

The PowerDock 5 is big enough to accommodate 5 devices. It can be used with any USB-powered gadgets, from my iPad to the wife’s iPod touch and the kids’ phones. And it does not only charge Apple devices. My BlackBerry charges here, too, making it ideal for any household regardless of the device it has. The dock makes charging well-organized so if there are one too many mobile devices in your house, you will find this very useful.

Also, compared to my experience with other charging stations, the PowerDock 5 offers the best experience. We used to have a similar device from Kanex but I find it cramped and frustrating. The PowerDock 5 comes with an open top and a plexiglass divider. It can accommodate mobile devices of any size, even if they have their cases and covers on. Just plug them in and they are ready to go.

Ok, but...

By Joe

This looks like a good product to not only charge your mobile device but also organize them while they charge. From my experience, it does the latter far better than the former. When I placed my iPad, BB Playbook 2, wife's BB Playbook 2, and my iPod Touch on the charging station, not all charged. The iPad and the Playbooks charged, but the iPod did not. I don't have the number of iOS devices to fill all five slots, so I don't know whether it works as I experienced. As it is, I'm not sure it's worth the price.
