has anyone made a multi-USB wall charger? Answered

I'm looking for a USB charger that would charge, for example, two iPhones, while only using one outlet.
And doing it safely. :)

I was looking at that yesterday.  I was also wondering how much heat they generate when charging at max.  Since they were meant to be used in the open air and installed in a tight wall box they are not going to get the ventilation they need.

Nice idea if they don't melt though.

Its a pretty idea, not sure its a good one though myself. It'd be illegal here.

Hmm, they're called USB-Hubs, but some are non-powered. And you want one without the signal cable, just the power.

I bought a D-Link hub like this for about 25$ CDN.
