If a snarl of tangled cords irks your sense of calm, Nomad has thought long and hard about the best way to tame the technological rat’s nest. Start with sleek and round wireless charging for your iPhone X, 8 or wireless-enabled Android. That’s one cord eliminated right there. Then for your headphones, speakers, portable chargers, tablets — or whatever other device, gadget or whatsit you need to juice before you go — there are four USB ports smartly hidden beneath the hub (along with a cable routing passage to keep it all straight).
LED lights tell you when your stuff’s charged, molded steel bars and a rubber base make sure the hub stays put, and the matte black finish keeps the look subtle. Charge five devices at once, with cords properly wrangled and your sense of order restored. – $80
