Review: ElevationLab FamilyCharger is great for home or office

Keeping track of your own chargers can be enough of a task but when you throw a family into the mix, there’s bound to be issues like borrowing stealing each others’ cables, not enough chargers where and when you need them, and more. Enter ElevationLab’s Family Charger that can power up to five devices at once with one robust integrated cable. Read on for our full review of this fantastic MFi family (or business) charging solution that offers power for Lightning, USB-C, and microUSB devices.

When you’re thinking about charging up a house full of mobile devices, it’s easy for things to quickly become messy as it often involves lots of charging bricks and lots of cables. FamilyCharger offers a clean and simple solution with a five cable-in-one braided nylon design.

Not only is this wired charging solution a lifesaver for families but can also be a killer addition to businesses or office spaces.

Materials and build

No surprises here. We’ve reviewed a good amount of ElevationLab’s Apple accessories over the years and FamilyCharger continues the company’s ethos of creating products with great form and function.

The main cable is made up of a robust braided black and silver nylon for a nice aesthetic to go along with the durability that will stand up to whole family use. ElevationLab also includes two silicon cable management mounts so you can install it practically anywhere.

Another neat aspect of FamilyCharger’s design is that the 52W of total power output and ability to charge five devices at a time only takes up one plug on a power strip or outlet.

More thoughtfulness, the charger can be purchased with or without the USB power adapter so if you already have one or need to replace it in the future, no worries.
