We recently told you that Ikea has announced a line of furniture and lamps with built-in Qi chargers. What about people who don’t use Qi charging? We want nice things, too! Well, Hammacher Schlemmer has a Device Charging End Table that has a built-in charging station for those of us who still need to cable up. A compartment flips open at the back and has a dual electric outlet with an additional USB charging port built in. (The image actually looks like two USB charging ports to me.) The cover of that compartment has a cut out at the edge to guide the charging cables out neatly. A storage drawer in the front holds remotes, your reading glasses, and the like, and an open shelf at the bottom adds even more storage. There’s even a little tray that pulls out at the middle front to hold your drink. It measures 23″ tall x 22″ wide x 16″ deep, and it’s made of hardwood solids and birch veneers with a warm chestnut finish. Assembly is required. The Device Charging End Table is $249.95 at Hammacher Schlemmer.
