Pros and Cons

Pros4

The anker 525 charging station is a 7-in-1 setup. It can speed charge seven devices at once. It's the heart of my tech setup at my home away from home.

Anker's legendary durability continues to shine. Sturdy and well built. Well worth owning.

The only thing 2 things i could think of to make this product better, which are overshadowed by the pros, is the grips on the bottom to keep it planted on a surface. They are quality and comparably less expensive to other high powered brands. My only ...  Read More

Cons2

It feels horrible to plug and unplug things into this outlet. Tentioners that hold prongs in have a weird snap to them that doesn't seem to normal outlet spec. The plugin receptacles are all loose in the unit and all the things i plug into it, fall ou...  Read More

This is a major fire hazard, and amazon should not be shipping this product. Buyer beware on this one guys. Will probably disintegrate with 6 months of use.
