Griffin PowerDock 5 USB Charging Station Review

It seems every new device that we get comes with a USB charger. Phones, tablets, speakers and more and all charged using USB. When you start to load up on devices and they come with their own power brick and after a while you run out of places to plug them in! That is where USB charging stations come in. They make it easy to charge multiple devices at once and typically you are only taking up a single power outlet. Griffin’s PowerDock 5 gives you 5 powered USB ports for your devices and on top of that is designed to keep everything relatively organized and clean. If you have multiple devices that need charged via USB then this is definitely a product you want to look at. Let’s take a look and see what it’s all about.

Special thanks to Griffin for providing us with the PowerDock 5 to review.

Packaging
Taking a look at the packaging the PowerDock 5 comes in Griffin’s typical retail packaging, although it does not say PowerDock 5 anywhere on the front. Instead you have two photos of the unit and it says “Ultra-Powerful 5-Port Charging Station”.

On the back it goes into more detail on what the unit is all about and back there we find the PowerDock 5 branding.

Getting everything out of the packaging we have the PowerDock 5 unit, six plastic dividers, power brick, power cable, and a set of power adapters for different locations.
