How to have a stylish charging center for mobile devices

The Tower by The Art of Power is a portable charging center and free-standing surge protection in a shapely frame.

The Tower can give power to six electronic devices while blending with the decor of your home and staying clear of your desk, tables and counter tops. The long neck means you won’t have to bend over to plug in or monitor your devices while you’re sitting or lying down. The base can be converted to stand flush against a wall.

The Tower has two USB ports for tablets and smart phones, as well as four standard AC plugs for laptop power adapters, lamps or anything else you might need to plug in. It is UL certified as a power distribution and surge suppression device and has storage for your cords. $99 at www.theartofpower.com.
