Sometimes it can feel that our lives are controlled by cords. We always need to be plugged in, we are forever searching for an outlet, we annoy our friends by asking to borrow chargers. Our bedtime routines have changed from relaxing with a book, to making sure all the things we will need the next day are connected. Most of us would admit that we need to be more organized, we need an easy solution to staying charged up and ready to go any given moment. That solution is YU.

Good Looking and Intelligent, YU is the stylish and valuable accessory you need for your desk at home, at work, or both. More than just a charging dock, YU is a power station with three power banks which remain perpetually charged just by sitting in their wireless dock. They are lightweight, slim and easy to drop into your pocket at the last minute as you duck out the door for an important meeting.
Wireless Charging Technology
Just drop your phone on the wireless charging pad and your phone will stay juiced while being cord-free, fully visible, and accessible to use throughout the day. If your phone does not have wireless charging capabilities, plug it directly into the YU via one of the three USB-A slots or the USB-C slot. If you need to move about and charge at the same time, pull one of the three power banks from the YU and plug your phone directly into it via the USB-A, USB-C or Micro USB ports
Three Portable Power Banks
The three portable power banks are different sizes and have different capacities depending on your charging needs. The largest power bank holds 15000 mAh (milliampere hours), the second power bank is slimmer and holds 10000 mAh, the third power bank is super thin and holds 5000 mAh. The banks sit neatly in their place on the YU dock and are ready to grab-and-go whenever you need them. No need to remember to plug them in or fumble around for charging cords
Laptop Charging Without Adaptors
If you are someone who carries a laptop from home to the office and back, you will also know the annoyance of also lugging around a heavy, bulky power adaptor and cord. With a YU, you can plug your MacBook or iPad directly into the dock via the USB-C port. YU has a fast-charging feature to quickly get your laptop up to full battery before you need to move it again.
Everything Charged at Once
Imagine preparing for a long trip and needing to simultaneously charge all of your items at once. Without the YU that means having dozens of cords, plugged into multiple outlets around your house or office, looking for adapters so you can plug several items into the same outlet, searching under desks and behind furniture for more places to connect. With the YU everything you need is on the table in front of you. Plug in your wireless headphones, camera, kindle, iPad, laptop, phone, speaker, GoPro, and everything else at the same time, in the same place. Never again stuck somewhere without the piece of technology that you desperately need in the moment.
