Worried about your nightly-charged Smartwatch? Check out this fancy universal charging station

Set to ride the smartwatch success wave, Chris V Woolpert has set out to create a limited edition charging station - adding class and style to your charging experience.




Recently releasing a Kickstarter campaign, Woolpert describes this project as a "derivative or "spin off" design from a larger parent design project called USDCS." Further explaining that "the goal of this Kickstarter project is to raise funds for the proper development of the USDCS smart technology design project."


The product itself will hold your smartwatch up high for all to see, whilst providing a charging cable threaded through the 'arm' of the device - allowing you to hold and charge your smartwatch in style. All new major-brand smartwatch releases will require nightly charging, so if you're looking to keep your watch safely off the ground or a desk, this might be the solution for you.




With only $72 raised of their $69,000 goal - this Kickstarter is in extremely early stages. There's still 25 days to go - can you see yourself using a product like this?


There's a plethora of different designs on offer ranging from standard wood-grain to a black and stainless steel edition, they've also shown off the capabilities for their model to charge three devices simultaneously. Although a little clumsy, it sure does look stylish either way.
