It’s a common problem for most travelers and perhaps a concern also for some individuals and families who own a ton of smart devices at home… the lack of available electrical outlets to simultaneously charge your tablet and smartphones.
I’ve experienced this dilemma countless times during hotel staycations and out of town getaways.
Just imagine… each member of our family owns a smartphone, my son and my wife also owns a tablet, and apart from that, I carry along quite a number of power banks (five of them) just for good measure. The situation gets crazy when we all need to charge our devices at the same time and there aren’t enough outlets to accommodate the demand.
I’ve been to hotels where their rooms only have a single available electrical outlet. It is such a pain to take turns charging phones when we only have a couple of hours to juice up then head on out to travel again.
Using multiple plug adapters can also be a hazard if you overload an outlet with a ton of chargers.
Good thing, a couple of dudes named, Wayne and Terrence, who founded a new company called, thecoopidea, came up with a bunch of smart accessories that help make lives a little bit easier for digital natives, gadget geeks and families alike.
One of their truly neat accessories is a real lifesaver that I am sure you will agree is an important necessity for anyone in this day and age… it is called the Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea.
Now, the idea is quite simple. The Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea enables you to juice up 4 smart devices all at the same time using only one electrical outlet. Think of it like a multiple plug adapter without the hassle of bringing all your individual chargers.
The Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea – One charger to rule them all!
It has 3 USB ports that provide 1A of power each (for small devices such as smartphones and powerbanks) and 1 USB port that gives out 2.1A of power (usually for tablets). That’s a total of 4 ports with a maximum power of 5.1A!
Unlike other charging hubs with gradually decreasing power as the number of devices plugged into it add up, the Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea promises to maintain each port’s speed even at full capacity.
Don’t be confused. The Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea is not a power bank. It is, just as its name says, a charging station. It needs a power outlet in order to operate.
The Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea is roughly the size of a coffee mug with a 1.2m power cord curled neatly inside its silicone sleeve.
The silicone sleeve of the Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea is removable, thus becoming a compact and light weight charger for travel use.
Pretty cool, right? Admit it… you need this. It’s a travel must-have.
For those who haven’t encountered the complication of making do with the lack of power outlets yet, don’t wait until it’s too late and you suddenly realize that you actually need a Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea. Best to have one handy just in case. And hey… it also makes for a great gift to friends and family members, don’t you think?
Note that the Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea is compatible not only to Apple devices but to other smartphone and tablet models as well (Android, Windows Phone, etc).
The Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea comes in a variety of delightful colors. The color I featured above is blue, but it also comes in yellow, grey, pink & green.
The retail price of the Jelly Charging Station by thecoopidea is Php 2,200.00. Very reasonable considering how much headache this little buddy spares you from.
