Lights, GPS, derailleur batteries, even your phone… this new customizable Trek CHRGtime charging station is a one-stop shop for keeping all of your electronic cycling gadgets topped off. And that tangle of wires out of sight. Yes, this is a $125 USB charger. But to any cyclist with a bunch of small electronic gadgets to keep charged, Trek’s new CHRGtime might finally be the solution to managing all those cables.

This new Trek CHRGtime is a simple plastic box designed to tidy up the modern cyclist’s life a little bit. Open it up and there’s a soft lined tray to keep SRAM AXS battery chargers, GPS devices, smartwatches, and various other bike lights & gadgets neatly separated. Then, tucked under that is a 6-port USB charger and a bunch of wires that you can thread out to the appropriate cubby.

Close the lid and all the jumble of wires disappears. And a series of 6 LEDs outside tells you charging status for each gadget inside.

The charger itself has 6 USB ports – 5 classic USB-A and 1 USB-C. Its power supply is rated at 65W max, which likely is to prevent the overheating you can get with a lot of fast-charging. But that’s probably plenty to get the max out of 5 devices at a time, or maybe even more out of the USB-C cable with fewer drained devices at the same time. (In practice, USB-A is limited to 12W per device, while the USB-C can do 20W and more for fast-charging.)

The closed box is 316mm long x 190mm wide x 80mm high or 12.4″ x 7.5″ x 3.1″. (Roughly the same size as 2 reams of paper).

That means the biggest inside cubby is about 9x15cm. That’s big enough for pretty much any GPS. But not quite enough room for a modern smartphone with a charging cable sticking out the bottom of it. The long ones are ~4x18cm to fit one long or two smaller gadgets.

Plus, there’s also a cable port out of the back of the box. So, one wire can charge a phone or bigger device in the shallow recess on top of the charging station. No wireless charging though. But I think you could stick a Qi standard charging pad to the lid’s underside for wireless charging on top. At least, that’s what I would do with this on my desktop.

The new Trek CHRGtime Charging Station is only available for the moment in-store at Trek dealers. It will set you back $125 in the US or 100€ in Europe. Who would have thought that a brick-and-mortar bikeshop is where you’d buy the tidiest solution to charge all of your little electronic gadgets.
