Twelve South PowerPic Review 2020 | The Strategist

michael jhon

Whether it’s a phone, a tablet, a portable speaker, or a pair of headphones, we all have something we need to charge. Always. It is a necessity in our continuously connected world. It’s also a source of constant clutter. I used to flinch as I walked past the cabal of chargers littering the side tables, counters, bookshelves, and even windowsills around my family’s apartment. With two adults and two tweens sheltering at home, our living room had taken on the vibe of an AT&T display case. We needed something to reduce the number of cables in our home.

Maybe there will be a weekend escape in my future, but in truth, I won’t be leaving  asphalt-ridden New York for much longer than for a a couple of days any time soon.  So I find my little bit of country in the ways I can—and in the kitchen, that means a strict refusal of all things sleek and modern.
