First world problem #183: too many devices, and not enough USB chargers.

There’s just never enough in my family – not the good, high powered chargers anyway (the bulky white Apple one – that’s basically a gold nugget). Some chargers just don’t work at all with certain tablets, and even if I could find enough, I’d need a huge extension cord just to plug them all in. What I need is a single charger that can power all of my devices at once – the rest of the family could them fight it out for the remaining ones.

Bolse is attempting to solve that problem with their newest 7-port, 12-Amp “SmartIC” charger, available for just $35.99 from Amazon. It’s the largest charger I can find on the market – but the Anker 5-port, 8-Amp at $25.99 comes close, also featuring their own branded smart technology dubbed “PowerIQ”. Poweradd has a 6-port, 10-Amp model for the same $25.99 price, but the ports are not optimized and may not charge your devices at full speed.

Do You Really Need 7 Ports?

Two iPads, a Nexus 7, a Kobo e-reader, an iPhone 4, iPhone 5s, an HTC One, some Bluetooth speakers, and a portable battery or two. That’s actually more than nine devices that charge over USB, but I’d settle for charging seven at a time! It’s a constant juggling act – choosing which device deserves juice next. In theory, each device should have it’s own charger – but some aren’t supplied with one, and others just break or go missing. A deficit of suitable high speed USB chargers is a fact of modern life – but it needn’t be.

There is also the issue of mixing chargers: some devices just refuse to work with different chargers – Android tablets and mobiles in particular.

The Bolse 7-port charger includes a SmartIC detection chip on every port that identifies the devices and adjusts the voltage supplied, ensuring it charges at the maximum speed, perfectly, every time. A lot of generic multi-chargers either don’t provide enough power (slowing the charge), or provide too much (potentially damaging the device). Not so with the Bolse – every device charges as quickly as it should, correctly. It’s great when stuff just works – Bolse is the ultimate all-in-one charger.

Contents

There’s no fussing around with Bolse products, and I like it. Keep the costs low, and don’t provide anything unnecessary.

  • 1.5m IEC C7 standard power cord
  • 7-port charger
  • Brief instruction book in English and Italian

A separate warning note is also included to make it explicitly clear that charging seven high current devices simultaneously isn’t possible. If you’re attempting to charge a large number of iPads, for instance, you’ll be limited to five at once. It’s simple arithmetic: the LC128 provides a maximum of 60W, or 12 amps at 5V. A high power device may draw 2.1-2.4 amps. If you do try to overcharge, the indicator LED will flash and you should unplug one or more devices. The warning note stops short of saying precisely what will happen if you don’t – but I assume the overcurrent protection will simply cut out charging to everything, rather than spontaneously combusting. I didn’t experience this in testing, and I doubt you will either since literally no one in the world is rich enough to afford 5 iPads.

It’s All About The Cables, Too

It’s worth mentioning that the rate at which a device will charge has to do both with the detection chip in the plug socket, and the USB cable too. This isn’t so much of a concern with proprietary Apple cables as you can’t mix and match those (unless you’ve purchased unreliable third party replacements), but since most Android devices charge over a standard micro-USB port, it’s far easier to mix up them up.

Unfortunately, not all micro-USB cables are equal: the thickness required to carry just data, for instance, won’t carry enough current to charge some devices at full rate; shorter cables are also better. The general advice is to use the original cable – but unless you’re meticulous at labelling cables, you may need to experiment a little and identify those that are best for charging from your collection of cables.

Safety Concerns

Bolse is a reliable brand name and an extensive set of safety compliance tests have been passed, so I’m confident there are no concerns there. While testing with every device I own, the unit wasn’t even warm to the touch.

One minor note of caution though: the instruction booklet advises that you plug the power cord into the charger unit first, then the wall outlet. This is due to an initial burst of current drawn from the socket, which is safer when done on the plug end than with the internal electronics of the charger.

Living With The Bolse 7-port Charger

Unlike most USB chargers which plug directly into the AC outlet, the Bolse unit is a separate device, powered by a standard 1.5m IEC C7 power cord (the same used on the PlayStation 2 or 3, and many other consumer electronics) – so there is no separate “power brick”. This is a welcome move for a few reasons:

Firstly, it serves to provides 1.5m of additional reach on any USB charging cables you have, resulting in less acrobatics behind the bed or sofa as you scramble around for a socket, and a generally more convenient charging experience. Not only that, but you’ll only need one wall socket.

Secondly, for the purposes of sustainability, it means the cable can be easily replaced should it be damaged by any pets you may have — in my case, chewy dogs and/or ferrets.

Thirdly, it’s perfect for international use: the unit accepts any voltage from 100-240V, and will happily work with either a plug-adapter on the original cable, or a standard cable purchased in the country you’re travelling.

Should You Buy One?

The Bolse 7-port USB charger is the ultimate all-in-one charger: it frees up wall sockets, gives you greater reach, and charges every device at maximum speed regardless of make or model. Even if it saves me just two minutes a day of hunting around for a spare charger for the next years, that adds up to an entire day I’ll get to spend playing video games instead.

MakeUseOf recommends: Buy one – this is an essential item in every modern home.

    I have several devices in my home.
    This seems to be a awesome item.

    It would a HUGE help to be able charge them in a central location:
    a) we would (hopefully) know where any given item at any time.
    b) *Most importantly* We would know where the charging cables are!!!

    September 10, 2014 at 4:22 pm

    You won't believe how good this product is.

    For example, a Raspberry Pi won't run reliably on anything less than 1 amp at 5V.
    With one of these I would be able to run 7 all at once!
    That's a server farm all of my own!

  42. Gaurav B
    September 10, 2014 at 1:15 pm

    It's like owning a house - things you own expand to find the open space. I would end up using 3-4 ports right now but pretty sure it would become all 7.

  43. Gerald S
    September 10, 2014 at 1:09 pm

    There are more than seven in this household,quite possible close to use all ports.

  44. David Smith
    September 10, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    I think we have 4 or 5 devices that use USB for charging. Eventually we would use all 7 ports as we add more devices and as more devices use USB as a power connector.

  45. VANDA
    September 10, 2014 at 11:26 am

    OMG. I NEED THIS!!! Desperately! I've got multiple devices that charge through USB. This would also be AWESOME for traveling because it would only take one plug. Drives me nuts in hotels trying to find enough plugs for all my devices. It would be even MORE AWESOME for international travel because I would only need one adapter! I should recommend this to my study abroad students as well.

    As MUO is international, I thought I would pouint out that Amazon Uk is selling the Bolse for £25. Sometimes MUO trumpets stuff you can only buy in the States.

    Also "plug the power cord into the charger unit first, then the wall outlet" - The inrush current protection in all switch mode power supplies, like the Bolse, tend to cause a spark as the power is connected. The spark is normal and happens here at the power socket rather than inside the box where it can do damage to the coltrol chips.

    As usual, Apple needs all sorts of trick circuits to get round their proprietary charge current control.
    Whereas the Android charging function is open and simple.

    Regularly charge multiple devices using several chargers: two tablets, mobile phone, kindle and powerpack. This looks to be a good gadget to carry around. Fingers crossed!

    Makeuseof is one of my favorite sites. Bolse brand are very well built and quality are astonishing. I have the Bolse 5 Port 40Watt Charger, it is awesome and never had problems with it. However i ran out of port because I connected two Raspberry Pi, Galaxy S5, Galaxy Tab S 8.4, Plantronics Bluetooth, and sometimes I also charge the Anker Gen 1 E4 10,000 MA External battery pack. If i'll have this by winning then it would be great since spending more on another Bolse Charger is a bit out of the stretch right now. Goodluck to all of us though, who wins takes this badboy. :D

    Awesome, I have an Apple slow (500mah) charger and a fast Huawei one for my phone which is one of those big ones that takes up the sockets next to it so charging is a pain. The USB cable also is just not long enough that I have to charge my phone on the floor and not on my desk.

    If I was including all my pc peripherals along with charging items, I'm sure I'd be using all the ports occasionally.

    I have iPhone, Nexus5, Blackberry, portable mp3, 2 power bank .... in total of 6 devices that need a fast rapid charge at once, i think through this fantastic article - review of Bolse 7-Port USB Charger i found the ONE and the ONLY solution for my devices demanding needs to charge at ease :) Bolse 7-Port 12-Amp “SmartIC” USB charger truly are a MUST HAVE item.

    i just have about 3 devices. but may have to use about 7 usb ports when travelling since i may have to share the outlet with friends. this would came handy by then.

    I have 4 devices . But seven is enough as i will be buying some new gadgets in near future.

    This is perfect for home and my office. They will connect only connect in one charger now.

    At least 10 devices.. some i use often others here and there, tablets, cameras, ipods, smartphones. yes i see myself using all 7 ports. Thanks!

    I have about 4-5 devices. It's always a pain having to carry so many chargers EVERYWHERE I go!

  119. Silvia D
    September 9, 2014 at 1:45 am

    oh yes, would be able to use all 7. Would be so useful for our family.

  120. Ryan

    My house had 10 devices. Would be useful in the living room.

    At least 5 Android devices are in my vicinity right now!

  122. Kevin Smith

    LOL great for sharing with friends because I would only need 4 at most!

  123. Niraj K. yadav

    I could use this - I charge a bunch of low end devices and am always looking for extra plugs.

  124. jeff hirsch
    September 8, 2014 at 11:29 pm

    4 devices. Don't think I would use all 7 ports at this time.

  125. Jonah Jeleniewski
    September 8, 2014 at 11:23 pm

    I've got 9 devices. 4 Tablets, 2 phones, a smartwatch, and two iPod touches. Naturally, some of these things are shared with my family. Yes, I would use all the ports!

  126. Endracion

    I own too many devices for my own good and I often find myself having to prioritize which ones I should plug for charging. This would definitely alleviate that problem!

  127. Robert Tunnah
    September 8, 2014 at 9:19 pm

    At least 10 devices between three of us - cameras, phones, kindles, pads, ipods, laptops and more. Chargers go "missing" on a regular basis, so this would be in constant use, I would imagine.
    7 ports might not actually be enough, at busy times. Far better, though, than the existing arrangement! Sounds like a good piece of kit.

  128. Mike F
    September 8, 2014 at 8:22 pm

    I may not use all of the ports myself, but I could see having this out in our family room. Between me and my fiancé we have 6 devices. Plus it could be a charging station for visitors too!

  129. Serg

    This would be so useful in our household

  130. Darren Freeman

    We have 6 devices, so this would be well used

  131. Lorna Kennedy
    September 8, 2014 at 8:11 pm

    I'm surprised now - after counting up we could use at least six :-)

  132. Paul Harris

    Never enough USB ports. I have a Targus powered hub with 7 outlets and they are all full and every external seem to be working fine.
    I'm sure I didn't pay anywhere near the prices quoted above, so shop around; and I live in Canada where everything costs more.
    I connect my Bluetooth mouse, two different BT headphones, a Passport, an external drive, a Samsung Laser printer, and a computer fan under my laptop.
    This leaves two USB ports open on my laptop for jump drives, etc.

  133. Amelia Kennedy
    September 8, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    This would be so useful in our household - so many devices and so few USB chargers!

  134. David Vessey
    September 8, 2014 at 7:14 pm

    Not got more than seven, but I'd be tempted just to use all seven ports!

  135. Travis Faulkner
    September 8, 2014 at 7:00 pm

    I own at least five devices that would be great to be able to charge from one port. and Im always looking for more

  136. Amir M

    two tablets, samsung galaxy s3, samsung galaxy s4 mini, iphone 4s, galaxy s4

  137. Miguel L

    I have 3 devices in one room, and I think I might use all 7 ports in a couple of years

  138. moorandro
    September 8, 2014 at 6:25 pm

    I would only use 4, but the ones with me would get some slots too :D

    I'd definitely use this. I find these very helpful when traveling.

  141. Joe W
    September 8, 2014 at 6:03 pm

    I own way too many usb devices, and several hubs--all of which have not been as reliable as I would like. I would use all 7 ports most of the time.

  142. Deborah C

  143. Eric R

    I have my phone, my 7" Nexux 2013 and my old Trasnformer Prime 10" with Cyanogen. SO I have 3 devices, but sometimes I have frinds coming at home that can also use some rehcarging of their phones.

    So I would use it if I won it.

  145. Dave N
    September 8, 2014 at 5:36 pm

    We've got 4 kindle fire hds and 4 smart phones right now, and I often have to charge devices in shifts due to space/outlet constraints. This thing seems useful.

  146. Tate S
    September 8, 2014 at 5:30 pm

    Currently have 4 devices, but yes, I can see myself using all 7 slots soon

  147. Rebecca P
    September 8, 2014 at 4:58 pm

    4 right now, but if I had that, I'd probably use more.

  148. Ajith Sen
    September 8, 2014 at 4:35 pm

    About 5 including my Dad's. I don't see myself using all the 7 at once in the near future.

  149. Andrew
    September 8, 2014 at 3:33 pm

    I have five devices that I regularly use. Even if I include the ones that I don't use often, I don't see myself using all seven ports at once, since everything wouldn't need to be charged at the same time.

  150. Hector
    September 8, 2014 at 2:59 pm

    I have about 4 devices that I use regularly. I don't think I would end up using all 7 ports but it sure would be convenient.

    Speeking of devices... My wife and I own quite a lot! We will definitely use the 7 ports!! :-)

    I need 7 ports

  154. Min Xuan X
    September 8, 2014 at 1:51 pm

    My phone, my wireless earphones, my mobile WiFi modem, my dad's phone, my mom's phone, my mom's tablet, my brothers' phones, and countless portable batteries in the house. I need way more than 7 ports and about 20A of power. It's a good thing there won't be a time where they have to be charged all at once.

  155. Nicolas D
    September 8, 2014 at 1:27 pm

    I almost never use 7 ports at the same time, but I get pretty close sometimes

  156. Howell
    September 8, 2014 at 1:09 pm

    I own at least a dozen such devices.

  157. Eugenie
    September 8, 2014 at 1:04 pm

    I don't know how many devices I own, well over 7 though.
