One decidedly irritating by-product of the digital age is the persistent need for power. Sure later typewriters and televisions also needed power. But those items were stationary and placed near wall outlets. There was also generally only one or two of those per house.
Modern households however often have at least one cell phone per person. Increasingly there is also one tablet or laptop per family member as well. This all combines to create the familiar challenge of competing for the best outlets. Best outlets, of course, means those near comfortable chairs or within view of a television.
For all you familiar with this challenge, this article could improve your life. Presenting a collection of end and side tables that incorporate a variety of features with USB ports and electrical outlets. You will never struggle to find a comfortable charging spot again!
The above-featured side table is available at Wayfair.
