If your bedside table has become an unmanageable menagerie of phones, tablets, and other devices charging overnight, Griffin wants to bring order to your chaos of cables. The company's new PowerDock 5 charging station has a footprint no larger than an iPad, but can accomodate up to five tablets, or a mix of devices, and charge them all from a single power outlet.

Available sometime in the spring for $100, the PowerDock 5 is a bit more pricey than just dedicating a powerbar to the task, but it also promises to keep your stack of devices neat and tidy. And while Griffin is positioning the charger for use with the entire gambit of Apple mobile devices, since they all connect to a series of USB ports along one side, there's no reason it can't be used with any hardware slim enough to fit in its slots and capable of charging over USB.

It only makes sense that someone owning redundant devices would buy an overpriced rack to charge all their redundant devices. I understand repurposing an old iPod touch for a dedicated music player, but owning two iPads and using them in the same general space makes no sense—I'm assuming this was made for couples who share Apple phandom?

Edit: my bad—their picture and the title of this article made me think this was only for Apple nutjobs
