We live in a world where most of us have multiple mobile devices such as a smartphone and tablet. If you have a family, then the device count is even higher. That means a lot of wires and clutter when it comes to charging up all these mobile goodies. Although some devices make things easier by supporting wireless charging, sometimes this just isn’t an option.
If you’re looking for a way to keep your devices more organized while they charge, you can already find quite a few docks and other charging systems that make things a bit easier, but none of these solutions are as elegant as All-Dock. Simply put, the All-Dock is a special docking station that allows you to use your devices in an upright position as they charge, all while hiding the cord clutter underneath the dock’s cord slots.
All-Dock comes in several flavors, including a white or black plastic version, or even a premium model with a wood-grain finish. The dock also comes three sizes: small (220 x 113 x 61mm), medium (220 x 142 x 61mm) and large (315 x 172 x 63mm).
The real magic for the All-Dock is its super-fast charging USB hub. According to the device’s creators, the hub will be able to charge devices at a rate of 2400 mA per port, which is enough juice to charge a smartphone from dead to 80% in less than a hour! The inclusion of a hub also means you only need to plug in one device to the wall, the rest of your cords will simply be plugged in and organized through the AllDock.

Now for the bad news: All-Dock doesn’t exist just yet. Right now it is seeking funding on Kickstarter, asking for just $40,000 to help it get off the ground and running. With 31 days left in the project, the All-Dock’s creators already have secured $16,990 in funding.
So how much do you need to pledge to get your hands on the All-Dock once it’s ready? It all depends. If you don’t want/need the fast charger, the small model can be yours for as little as $39, though larger models with the included fast-charger can set you back as high as $149.
As for when you can expect the hub/dock to ship, the goal is to have it out sometime in May — though keep in mind that this date could change. What do you think of the All-Dock, like the idea or not?
