Multi-port USB power supply

My wife and I charge our tablets and phones in a central location.  There are so many wall warts and not enough outlets!  I would like to have a single USB type of power supply that can charge at least 6 devices at the same time.  Each port should be able to supply 5 volts DC at 1 amp or better.  I've purchased two different 4 port wall warts and they just don't have the juice to get the job done.  Any ideas?

2.: Buy a bag of USB-connectors like

or

3.: Wire up a bunch of USB-Ports in parallel
4.: Charge your gadgets.

Optional but recommended: Make a nice box for all where you can place the PSU and mount the USB-ports.
