I can’t begin to tell you how many power strips, surge protectors and other similar items are in my computer room alone right now. This is where all the action takes place every day, regardless if it’s me just surfing the internet, writing articles or playing my favorite video game such as Destiny and Destiny 2. I can’t have enough outlets to plug all the various things into such as my game consoles, all the stuff my PC needs and then of course all the various things that supply power to all of my mobile devices I have laying around which on just my main desk currently is seven different mobile phones. So when the package from RND Power Solutions arrived and I saw the RND Power Solutions Wall Power Station with 2 USB outlets and dual phone holders, I was quite excited and knew it would be one of the first things I give a try.
About The Wall Power Station
The RND Power Solutions Wall Power Station is pretty simple so there’s not going to be an in-depth breakdown of the product in this review but the good thing is, that while it might be simple, it works and it works well. For me I have this plugged in between my computer desk and the L-Shaped desk that my TV sits where all of my game consoles are. I say all of them because I have a PlayStation 4, XBox One S, Nintendo Switch, NES Classic Mini and the newest addition to the family, the SNES Classic Mini. Now I know that’s more ports than what the RND Wall Power Station has available, but it’s just to give you an idea of how many things I have that need to be plugged in.
Not only does the RND Wall Power Station allow me to plug AC outlets into it, but it also sports two USB outlets. This of course is necessary since it does come with two little trays, one on each side, that fold out that you can place a mobile phone into. And of course as you can see in the image below I have all three power outlets being used as well as a phone in both plastic phone trays. I currently didn’t have anything plugged into the USB ports but you can clearly see them there.
This device from RND Power Solutions simply works as I stated above but there are a couple of things that I’d like to see changed on a future version of this product. The first is the fact that the outlets are a bit close together. We all know things like routers, modems and other things have those big bulky ends that you have to plug into that take up a lot of room, so using one of those on this you’ll certainly lose an outlet unfortunately. There’s room on this product to stagger the outlets a bit and I think that would allow you to plug bigger things into it.
The second thing I’d change is the fact that it only has two USB ports. While two is definitely nice, I feel there’s room for at least three if not four USB outlets. Utilizing the sides of the wall power station would have been great and would have given those of us that need all the ports possible more of what we need.
One thing to note and it’s actually something I show in the image above is the fact that using a case on a phone like the iPhone 7 Plus(the one on the right in the picture above) makes it barely fit into the phone holder tray. As you can see it doesn’t sit all the way down into the tray like the Note 8(the one on the left in the picture above) does which doesn’t have a case on it currently.
For the cheap price of only $19.99 you seriously can’t go wrong here with the RND Power Solutions Wall Power Station. You will gain an additional outlet once you plug it into the wall plus you also gain two USB ports and two phone holder trays. You also get a choice of either white or black which isn’t something that’s always possible as most of these types of products only come in white. So if you’re in the need of something other than white, this is your chance.
I did mention that this product will cost you $19.99 if you purchase directly from their site. However, the good news is, if you use code TECHD at checkout on the RND Power Solutions site you’ll save yourself 15% off your entire order. So stock up today and save money along the way.
