Kanex Sydnee : Smart Recharge Station


It’s the era of technology!!

Does that statement age me a little? Oh c’mon, you’re reading this so you have to agree!

Let me ask you a question, how many tablets and cell phones do you have in your household? Bet you that number is increasing more than you thought you would.

Batteries seem to die all at once {I think it’s gadget law}, and I know at times I’m charging items in the most obscure of places. Even at home, you’ll often find a phone plugged in behind the couch or right between the toaster and coffee maker. Look close and you’ll see 3 cords peeking out from side tables.

Kanex Sydnee has a really smart recharge station, which saves counter space and is more organized {as well as saves you from running all over the house trying to recall where your items are}.

This multiple charging and organizing station can hold up to 3 iPads/ tablets or smart phones yet it also has an extra port to charge an additional tablet or smart phone simultaneously. The front charging shelf is perfect for charging and also acting as a holder, so you can use the tablet while it charges.

While there are three openings {hence charging 3 iPads}, but you can easily stack a 4th in there if needed and you don’t need to take them out of their cases either. It’s shaped to hold those iPads or tablets, yet keep in mind that you can charge anything with a USB port like other brand of phones or a kindle for example.

I think my favorite aspect of using the Kanex Sydnee is that there isn’t a ton of cords laying around everywhere anymore. It’s so nice to have everything all stacked neatly in one place, and only taking up one electrical socket.

At the top it has a yellow clip to hold cords in place, and a spot to neatly wrap longer cords that you use with your devices right now. It comes with 3 short cords to use on iDevices, yet they don’t have the end for the new iPhone5. While that’s ok because you can easily use your own cord and wrap it around and out of the way, it would be nice to see the new cord added ‘in the shorts’ as well.

Not to get technical on you or anything, but each USB port pumps 2.1-amps so all the devices, meaning that they all charge at the same time and at the same rate as they would charge individually {maybe a little less, but I haven’t timed it}.

It also has full surge protection, plus a built-in short circuit breaker so you don’t have to worry about power surges and thus and damage to a device. Which makes me wonder what a surge would do to my devices if plugged in the usual way … that’s a lot of money on the line there!

Yet, I can see this as a great product for businesses as well. Have you ever looked around while out, only to find people charging their devices in every nook and cranny? So, I think public places like offices and coffee shops would benefit from Kanex Sydnee, for the speed and convenience. Same goes with schools, it’s been a *few* years yet I can bet that there’s a mad rush to reserve a free outlet in college classrooms and meeting areas.

You can purchase right off the site:, each station costs $149 and comes in either black or white. It’s a bit on the pricier side, yet for organization and simplifying life a little, it’s something that you’d appreciate once you have.
