WERO Multi function Apple Charging Station

img_2915If you are a fan of Apple devices then you might want to have a neat and tidy way of charging them all, your iPhone, your iPad, your iWatch and even the AirPods.

A few months ago I was sent 2 products from WERO to test and review, you may have read my review on the WERO Apple Watch desktop stand and noticed that I mentioned another item – This item.

But there was a slight issue upon assembly…..

Now don’t get me wrong, the build quality is excellent – It looks like something Apple would sell themselves, it’s a sleek aluminium charging station that fits together well, looks good and in theory would charge all your devices.

I say in theory because there is a problem.  The charging cable for the iWatch fits perfectly, the space for the Airpods is perfect but the charging section for the iPhone is the issue.

I can understand it being manufactured not to accept 3rd party cables (An oversight if you ask me though) but mine wouldn’t accept my official Apple cables – None of the 3 I had at home and not even the new one I purchased!

Cable slides in from underneath and is clamped on….

No matter how you try it, that hole isn’t big enough.

Of course there are a couple of options, neither of which I would recommend.

  • Strip some plastic off the charging cable – either cut it or sand it.
  • Elongate the hole in the stand itself.

Being the person I am, I did make the company aware of the issue, sent them the same images (they suggested stripping the cable!) but they did admit it was a flaw and they would pass it on to their design team then send me another unit.

This was almost 3 months ago now, I’ve not heard anything back and have noticed this item is still being sold – Hopefully with the modifications done.

It’s a shame really as assembled it looks really smart.

My only wish for these types of stands would be to include the charging adaptors and have a single input as you still have to run 3 cables up to the stand and if you don’t have a suitable multi-port USB charger then you’ll have 3 plugs too!
