If your household is anything like mine then you have Smartphones and Tablet chargers all over the place or a 4 or 6 gang trailing socket full of various chargers. Well today a Belkin Conserve Valet Smart USB Charging Station dropped through the door and what a device it is.

The Belkin Conserve Valet Smart USB Charging Station lets you charge all of your mobile devices in one convenient place, and automatically shuts off power, including standby power, after devices are fully charged. Belkin Valet Smart even senses when new devices are added so you always get a full charge, and has an innovative cord management system to keep things neat.

So what do you get:
Well first off it comes in a resealable bag, not retail packaging that I was expecting. A 2-pin plug which in the UK is useless, you will need a 3-pin adapter. Now is this the fault of Belkin or MyTrendyPhone, we have emailed MyTrendyPhones  to find out where the responsibility lies.

  1. One Charging station,
  2. Four USB cables 320mm (12.5 inches) long,
  3. One Power cable 1.3m (4ft 3 inches) long.

Setting up:

Very simple to set-up, just plug in the USB cables and power cable. Connect your devices and press the lime green button and away you go.

Technical data

  • Charges up to 4 mobile devices at the same time (USB output)
  • Replaces up to 4 charging bricks with one simple power cord to free up wall outlets
  • Integrated timer turns off after 4.5 hours of charging time to save energy
  • Creates a designated charge spot, so you always know where your mobile devices are
  • Cord management system to reduce clutter

The only bad point of this is that it comes with a 2 pin plug! Now I would put this down to Belkin rather than MyTrendyPhones and feel let down by such a big company that they do not supply you with the correct plug, in my case a UK 3-pin plug.

Now in my eyes Belkin should have either:
1. Supplied a cable with a 3-pin UK plug,
2. Supplied a cable without a plug, or
3. Supplied an adapter.

Either way Belkin, poor customer support from such a large company.
