Despite my best attempts I cannot seem to eliminate Micro-USB charges in our house. The biggest offender right now is the Kindle e-reader devices. Amazon is so budget and cost-focused they won’t even spend the $$ to put USB-C in. So here we are with a multitude of things that require at least 3 charger tips:
USB-C - the future
Lightning Connector - the necessary and annoying present if you have any Apple devices
Micro-USB - the past
A few months ago I found a clever solution to this challenge - specifically for my children who have all 3 charger needs in their bedrooms.
The ElevationLab FamilyCharger is a single bundle of 5 cable types. It’s very convenient and tidy. It consists of 3 Lightning, 1 MicroUSB, and 1 USB-C. Each item is limited to 2.4A / 5W so this puts your charging limit at 12W. This isn’t enough to power some USB-C devices such as laptops but will charge almost every small device or iPad (slowly).
