REVIEW – After a few years of testing and reviewing wireless charging devices, I have lost track of how many I have tried. Most of the solutions I tested either offer a single wireless charging option in an awkward or unbalanced position, or they try to offer multiple options, but on a footprint that is either too large for my practical use on my desk or nightstand. In some designs, they offer built-in popup jacks that make connectivity frustrating. I had given up on finding any device that included a design that is practical for my needs until now. Enter the Intelli Powerhub!!
What is it?
The Intelli Powerhub is an all-in-one charging/powering device that is capable of charging up to 4 devices at once as well as providing power via its 2 built-in power outlets. Additional features include Wireless Charging, fast-charge USB, and type-C charging as well as a Power Delivery port.

The Powerhub is a clean design with the wireless charging surface on the front, the 2 AC ports on the back behind the wireless charging surface, the USB ports on the sides, and the on/off power switch on the back.
I use this Powerhub on my nightstand. As shown below, I am able to plug in my lamp, my CPAP machine and charge my phone. When needed, I can also charge things like my earbuds, and I can power some USB-C devices.
This hub works well and is very convenient. My phone charges easily just by placing it on the charger, and the angle is good for me to glance over at the phone while it is charging. I can also use the touchscreen on my phone while it remains charging, and the rubber feet at the bottom of the device ensure that it does not slide.
On the nightstand lower shelf, I have the CPAP machine that I plug in the Powerhub. In the morning, when I get up from bed, I am able to turn off the Powerhub via its on/off switch, as opposed to having to plug out my CPAP machine, etc.
What I like
- The build quality
- The number of charging/powering options
- The wireless charging option
- The 2 built-in AC ports
- The practical on/off switch option
What I’d change
- It does exactly what it is designed to do
After testing and using the Intelli Powerhub for about a month, it has earned a permanent place on my nightstand. For my use, the phone sits at the perfect angle, the extra USB ports allow me to charge my additional phones and earbuds, etc and the 2 AC ports allow me to power my nightstand lamp and my CPAP machine. This simply works for me!! Well done!!
