    Charging Station

    I have several things I need to charge when I'm done riding. I use my pc and the usb charging cords for :
    Wahoo Element Bolt
    Rear Red Light
    Arm band HRM
    My wife Garmin
    Her rear Light

    I have cords laying all over my pc desk.

    I was wondering...and thinking about getting some kind of " Charging Station" put together.
    With cords and holders for the lights, computer, HRM

    What do some of your pc desk look like ?
    Mine looks like a mess with cords and items laying on the desk and top of the pc

    It would be neat to have some kind of Charging Station.

    Just get a USB hub, with enough sockets to plug in all your cables. I used one with a 12V DC power input and connect that to my solar battery bank:

    Later on, I updated that charging station:

    It's got all the different USB cords plugged in, mini, micro, old Ipod adapter, magnet clip for my rear light, etc. Anything that needs charging, goes out there.

    I have this on a small shelf with a little basket. It charges my Wahoo Bolt, Scoche Rhythm Plus, lights, and pretty much anything else I need it to do

    I use one of these. Put in a small basket. Cut a hole in the back of the basket to run the power cord. Keeps everything organized and out of sight. Pretty simple

    I needed extra 110 outlets and USB ports for a workbench area I was building. I bought one of these: https://www.ebay.com/itm/BESTEK-Surg...item2157a9fac3
    Works great. I charge both bike lights and garmin along with several other items.
