Although the designers of this desk companion envisioned the cup portion as a pencil/pen/scissor holder, I found this neatly designed device to be much more useful as a charging station for my many battery-powered gadgets. Their cords fit well in the sectioned cup, and removing the cup reveals the six-plug power disk (or strip). My smartphone, Bluetooth headset, and iPod sit nicely in the cup while charging, and replacing the cup conceals the plugs again. The only downside: This charmer is expensive.
