JOTO Power Port Station a great charging option for devices.
I cannot be alone when I say that my nightstand tends to look like a tech graveyard. I have, at any given time, an Apple Watch, iPhone 6s Plus, iPad Air 2, The New Nintendo 3DS XL, Bluetooth headphones/earbuds, a lamp and a Sandman Alarm Clock. I have turned to surge protectors and have 2 on the outlet by my nightstand. It is hard to deal with all of the various power bricks and charging cubes and it turns into a chargers Tetris. I don’t mind the wires/cables/cords as I can slide them behind the nightstand. However, it is really difficult sometimes to plug in all of the power cubes into a surge protector.
I have been given a JOTO Power Port Station, in white. This is a 3 USB-A port, 1 USB Type-C Port and 2 outlet surge protection. It has a rating of 120V/10A/60HZ/1200W with a max spike of 10.0A. The outlet will surge protect 4320 J and has a total of 5V/7.4 total output from the 3 USB ports. USB C, is a change in the actual port on the device. One mistake people make, is assuming that this refers to the cable. USB C is an oval port that is fully reversible, similar to the Lightning adaptor. This will likely replace the USB A (rectangular USB port) that we have known so far. The next thing to consider is the connection speed that the USB C can accommodate. USB 3.1 is coming (turquoise port) and is replacing 3.0. In fact, it is blowing 3.0 out of the water, doubling the transfer speed, up to 10 Gbps. WIth the full output of USB C and USB 3.1, this type of port can transmit HDMI and is powerful enough to charge a laptop. Will this replace the AC port/power outlets on future devices? Only time will tell. Interestingly on this JOTO charger, this port allows for 3A max charging.
I think it will be a trend, moving forward, to have most tech powered by USB. I think the typical power brick will be a thing of the past. I am really pleased with this device. I added a 4 port USB HUB on one of the Type A wall outlets. The spacing is done well and I really like the orientation of the outlets and the USB ports. Combine this with the fact that the station has 5.5 feet of cord, and this becomes perfect for your desk, nightstand, motorhome and business. I do find it odd that there is no power switch or reset button on this device. Most surge protectors have the typical power off/on slider and some even have a rest button. I have never had a surge or issues with my devices, so I use these more as a precaution. Lastly, I love that the company thought about the consumer and included a flat wall plug. There is nothing more annoying than have a really big plug to try to fit behind your furniture.
In 2016 it is likely impossible to power all of the items we use without surge protectors. It is funny, homes have multiple outlets spaced throughout them. Yet, we overpower just a few of them to keep our tech ready to use. I love devices like the JOTO as it provides multiple options for charging your devices, in a compact design. If you do not like this resting on your desk, it is possible to add a piece of 3M Velcro tape and attach it to the back of your nightstand. Long story short, I really cannot find a reason to dislike this device. I have not had any issues charging my iPhone, iPad, Sandman Clock, P6 Bluetooth headset, Apple Watch all from a single wall outlet. This was a device I did not know I needed, until I had it. Now, it is part of my nightstand organization system. I rate this at 5/5 stars. I do not yet have any USB C devices to test the USB C port, so I will have to trust the developers at this time about the rate of charge. I did get about 1% charge per minute from my iPhone and iPad Air 2 charging simultaneously. This supports the 2.4A suggestion. The device did get a little warm but not hot enough to raise any concern.
