The Kanex Sydnee 4 port tablet charger is designed for people who have multiple devices that can benefit from high speed 2.1amp USB charging ports. Kanex bills it as appropriate for iPad tablets, but in our testing we found it worked perfectly for any sort of tablet, as well as for high capacity phones such as the Samsung Galaxy Note II.
Introducing the Kanex Sydnee
The Sydnee offers a unique and attractive design, which differs from the competition’s spartan blocky chargers. It’s designed to present one tablet to the user in a position that is available and useful, while two others rest in slots behind the first. Each of the three tablets can plug into its own full 2.1amp charging port (using your own USB cables), and there is one additional port available for a device that might be laid on the table beside the charger.
One other significant differentiator with Sydnee is the integrated power supply. Sydnee only requires a single power cable be plugged into the wall because the charge controlling hardware is built into the unit. Other chargers I’ve encountered often come with a power brick similar to one you’d find with a laptop – a most annoying shortcoming for a device meant to stay put.
In testing we tried every Android and iOS device we had (and that’s a LOT) and all worked flawlessly. Combined with the Kanex Sydnee’s good looks and functionality I’d highly recommend this unit to anyone who needs to keep a stack of tablets charged.
