I had been looking for all in one charging solution for some time but finding something in stores was just not an option, a lot of online searching led me to the Quirky range of solutions which seem pretty cool. They have quite an unusual design aesthetic which I really like. Unfortunately I couldn’t get delivery to South Africa from their site but I found the Converge model on Superbalist for R499.
So to end off I’d say there are probably nicer ones out there and even Quirky themselves make other models which look better so perhaps mine was just first gen! It’s such a pity you can’t try before you buy because these are devices you actually need to physically look at and use to see if they are right for you.
