Redesigned Griffin Multidock shipping, charges 10 devices at once

updated 06:50 pm EDT, Thu September 5, 2013

Up to three units can be stacked with compatible Mac Book Pro drawer

Peripheral and accessory manufacturer Griffin is rolling out a newly-designed MultiDock for charging, storing and syncing multiple iPads, tablets and smartphones. Griffin's exclusive ChargeSensor technology in MultiDock adapts on-the-fly to any connected iOS or Android device by providing the fastest charging rate for that device. Connecting a device that uses Apple's new Lightning connector activates MultiDock's Quick Charge Mode to charge these devices at the fastest possible rate, even while syncing.

A single MultiDock is designed for easy securing to a table, desk or countertop, and comes with hardware to stack up to three units in one space with charging for 10 - 30 devices from a single computer. Available in two configurations -- a single 10-bay unit, and a stacked 30-bay cart complete with smooth rolling wheels, handle and a lockable laptop tray large enough to secure a 15-inch MacBook Pro.

One 10-device charging unit is 13 inches high, 15 inches wide, and 12.5 inches deep. Without devices, each MultiDock weighs 18.6 pounds. Each port provides 5 volts at 2.1 amps to a device. The unit supports the USB Battery Charging 1.2 specification.

Multidock's outer shell is made of aluminum with a clear, anodized finish. The locking front door, made of steel, slides into place to secure any device inside. Individual, color-changing LEDs indicate charging and syncing status for each bay at a glance, no matter if the front door is open or closed.

The new MultiDock will be available this month for $699 to $2,399, depending on configuration and cable mix.

    I think I will pass - I could make my own for less than $200.
