I’m brilliant! I made a charging station for our gadgets. Slots in this organizer are wide enough to accommodate the iPad, iPhone, Surface Pro, etc., without removing their protective covers.
Recharge up to six items with a desktop organizer along with a surge protector with six swivel outlets (here on Amazon). I already had this desktop organizer and saw some other ideas that would work on Amazon (like this acrylic one or mesh). And any outlet strip surge protector will work.
We use this overnight for all our gadgets and gizmos, all nice and neat, and didn’t have to spend $60 on a fancy one.
Any ideas on this are welcome in comments.
