While charging stations are a dime a dozen, few are able to be more than utilitarian things that stick out like a sore thumb. Of the few that are sleek and elegant, even fewer are able to charge multiple high demand devices that are so prevalent today.

Here is the Zip USB Touch-n-go Multi-Charging Station. Looks do not come at the expense of usefulness; rather the unique look and overall style flows directly from the basic design. Unlike most charging stations where you plug in a device into Slot A, then another into Slot B, the Touch-n-go uses proprietary cables with magnetic power adapters on one end. Simply plug in the USB port to your device and “flip” the other end over one of the 16 depressions (which have positive, negative and ground contacts in the center).

The magnets take care of the rest and your device starts getting power nearly instantly. While it is on pre-order right now for 79.95, expect to shell out even more when the Zip Touch-n-go with maximum output of 2100mA becomes available (release date unknown at this time) as this starter kit only comes with one USB and two micro USB connectors. This is a shame as you have 16 slots, so it should have come with more than a measly three dongles.
