BREAKING NEWS: Boutique Design Meets Charging Powerhouse! Also, Thundersnow! in Boston! Dude, this weekend just keeps getting trippier. First all the dead flowers and rotting meat I got from my ex for Valentine's Day (obviously she misses me and wants to get back together), then God's continued overhead pummeling of the East Coast, and now--now!--a handmade wood and aluminum charger that will make your desktop look like a mack while juicing your smartphone like a pimp.

Truffol has taken ORICO charging tech and built a home decor-friendly wood and aluminum box around it to create a classy 5-port USB hub. Wood is sourced from the buyer's choice of grade A black walnut or cherry, and then milled to a precise 3mm thickness. Hand-polishing and mounting to a brushed aircraft aluminum case complete the aesthetic.

Hubs are equipped with a 12V3A, 36W power adapter, 2 x quick-charge 2.4A ports for tablets, and 3 x universal 1.0A ports. Charge any combination of phones, tablets, or other USB-charged devices simultaneously. Compatibility includes Apple iPad Air, Apple iPhone 5/5c/5s/6/6 Plus, Samsung Galaxy S3/S4/S5/A3/A5/A7, HTC One M7/M8, Galaxy Note 2/3/4, Galaxy Tab, Sony Xperia Z1/Z2/Z3, Google Nexus 4/5/6/9, Blackberry Passport/Classic/Bold/Curve, LG G2/G3, and most tablets and smartphones on the market.
