Introduction: USB Gadget Charging Station

I had an old printer paper organizer lying around and decide to turn it into a charging station.  The top drawer holds either my ipad and Keyboard or an ipod and my Nook.  The second drawer charges my Touchpad and my cell phone.  The third drawer holds the the power bar.  (not all of the USB chargers are shown in the picture)  Everything is nice and neat and put away for charging.

My only concern with this or other enclosed charging stations is the retention of heat within the enclosure. I'd worry about the long term effect of heat on the life of the transformer/wall-warts.

It is working great, everything is nice and neat and hidden away. The paper tray has enough venting through the drawers, etc. that heat hasn't been an issue. If you look closely at picture two, you will see that the drawer bottoms have large holes in them that allow air flow.
