Do you find that your desk or your bedside table is getting far too cluttered with all the things that you need to charge every day? You’ve got your smartphone(s), your tablet(s), your smartwatch(es), your fitness tracker(s), your USB power bank(s) and more. It’s just a nasty and unsightly rat’s nest of cables that only gets tangled. For an approach that’s a little more grounded and organized, the Zentree by GELID Solutions could what you need in your life.

Basically, what you get with the Zentree is a four-port USB hub that’s been covered in a 3D flexible pin array. It’s like a zen forest, I guess. Because the “pins” are different heights and they’re loosely arranged in a grid, you can safely accommodate devices of varying sizes without any fuss. You simply take off the soft silicone cover, feed the USB cables through, and plug in the devices that need charging.

The aesthetics of the Zentree are certainly a matter of personal preference, but at least you don’t have cables running everywhere. Each of the four USB ports is good for up to 2.4A of power and the whole thing has 48W of power output. That’s enough to charge up to four iPad Pros at the same time.

GELID Solutions is currently seeking funding for the Zentree through a Indiegogo campaign page. The crowdfunding goal has been set at $50,000 with exactly one month left to go. Early bird backers can get a single Zentree for $30; the MSRP will jump to $50 when the Zentree is ready for mass consumption. Check out the video and press release below for more information.
