Product Description

From the Manufacturer

The Belkin Conserve Valet Energy Saving USB Charging Station charges up to four devices at once and shuts off automatically when not in use. It addresses the energy waste that results from idle chargers, which still draw power when they are left plugged into the wall--whether or not a device is attached. The Conserve Valet draws zero power when not in use, so you can keep your devices ready to go without wasting energy.

Save Energy, Reduce Clutter
The Belkin Conserve Valet Energy Saving USB Charging Station charges up to four devices at once and has an integrated timer that shuts off power after 4.5 hours to save energy. This device also allows you to free up wall space--just this one unit replaces up to four charging "bricks" with one power cord. And the easy-to-see LED clearly shows all activity.

Designated Charging Spot
To help keep your mobile devices organized and easy to find, the Conserve Valet creates a designated charging spot. Place it on a desk, dresser, or side table, and you'll always know exactly where to find your phone, MP3 player, or camera.

Compatible with Phones, MP3 Players, and More
The Conserve Valet is compatible with most MP3 players, smart phones, digital cameras, and other portable devices that use a USB input to charge. The included Belkin USB cords are compatible with devices that have a Mini-B or Micro-B USB charge port. For added convenience, this device has 4 USB outputs (three located on the rear and one located on the side for easy-access charging).

User-Friendly Design
Designed to be easy to use, the Conserve Valet features push-button start, auto-off, and a auto-start function that kicks in when you plug in additional devices, ensuring the added devices receive a full charge. A non-slip finish on the tray prevents device slippage, an inner spool provides cord storage and management, and cut-outs underneath the tray secure cord placement.

The Conserve Valet Smart USB Charging Station is backed by a one-year limited warranty.

Wouldn't charge my iPad.
Paul
So when I wake up at, say 8:30 am, it have been already been draining for 4 hours, thus I do not have a fully charged phone in the morning.
Vadim Z.
Highly recommend this for anyone who has multiple devices and needs a charging station for all of them.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I really like this charger, we brought it down to a small conference and set it up in the conference office. We configured its four ports with two iPhone cables and the included mini-USB and micro-USB cables. I think it is fair to say that the device was a hit - people could put a phone of almost any stripe on the charger. Over the course of the conference, we charged maybe a dozen different types of phones (and even a MiFi) without any issues.

The one problem was the "automatic" timer. As it turns out, it's just a timed 4.5 hour switch - not some kind of smart system that detects current draw. So, if someone puts a phone on it and turns on the charger, it will go off in 4.5 hours - which is fine - unless someone else shows up two hours later and adds their phone (which will only get a 2.5 hour charge). As a result, we had a lot of phones that would not get a full charge because the device had shut off and no one had realized they needed to turn it back on. The indicator light is very, very dim (perhaps part of the energy savings?), so it's not very noticeable from a simple glance if the unit is on - you really have to look at the power light.

It's a good device, but its limitations should be resolved in the next iteration with an option to turn off the power-saving feature or to change the timer length to 8 or 16 hours.

After reading the reviews on this product the actual shipment was delayed 2 months. I should have known this was a product with issues.

The good news...it arrived and works OK for charging an iPhone 3G and a Motorola Bluetooth headset.

The bad news...It does not work for a Blackberry Bold 9700 and apparently other devices.

The really bad news and the reason for this review...Belkin's customer support is a disaster.

The unit comes with two short micro USB cables (one typical of cameras and headsets and one that matches the Blackberry adapter) but no explanation as to why. The micro usb cable works fine for the Bluetooth headset. The other cable that fits the Blackberry does not charge the Blackberry and if used requires the Blackberry to be reset by removing the battery.

Tucked into the minimal documentation is a slip of paper I originally missed that indicates a Belkin website for a special cable for the Blackberry Bold and other devices. I went to the site, ordered the free cable and in short order got an email reply from Belkin that my order was received.

A week later no cable. Multiple calls to the 24x7 customer support ended up being disconnected or routed in a circle. The chat option failed with three different Browsers. A email request for customer support required multiple tries to get past the required support description before it was accepted. Again an immediate email indicating reply with 1 business day. FIVE DAYS later an email comes indicating that the cable order was unrecognized, the issue was closed, and a recommendation that I call customer support! This smells like Belkin is still unprepared to support this product on any front.

Being a glutton for punishment I tried customer support again.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Length: 4:38 Mins
The Belkin Conserve purports to save both energy and clutter; however, as you will see from this video, it could do better with energy conservation and it helps with clutter only if you never remove your charging cables from the valet. In this video, I show you how it works -- and how it doesn't. Points not mentioned in the video because of file size consideration: the surface of the valet is angled, with a gripping surface and bottom lips to keep your devices from sliding off; the supplied USB cables (USB to micro and mini) are really short, which could help reduce clutter for the devices that they actually connect with; the whole unit is lightweight, although rubberized feet prevent it from being knocked off a desk or nightstand.

Pros: can charge serveral device at the same time. The top surface is big enough to hold two phones side-by-side

Cons: Very misleading spec. On Belkin's web page, it listed power output as "+5V/2A". I immediately jumped on it as it can charge phone and ipad(requires 2A) together. Once you have the device and look at the bottom, you will see "2A(0.5Ax4)"!! It does not work for iPad or device requiring 1A to charge.

The "green" feature does not work well with smarphones when you charge your phone when you go to bed. The unit will turn off when the phone is charged but then your phone will be draining power again for the most of the night. The battery will not be fully charged when you wake up in the morning.

Before making this purchase, I read the description and looked over the manual. As far as I can tell, the Valet does exactly what it says it will do.

I keep in on my headboard. The charging pad comfortably fits an LG phone, an iPod touch, an iPhone 4 and a bluetooth headset. I keep a little additional space next to it for a Kindle 3G. Before heading to bed I plug in the device(s) that need a charge, press the start button and go to sleep. In the morning my devices are at or close-to full charge. I find it very convenient and it considerably neatened up all those plugs and cables I was using before.

In looking over some of the negative reviews, there were a few things I noticed:

1) a complaint that the device is not shipped with a printed manual rather than a PDF to be downloaded. If you are trying to be "green" and yet want a printed manual to be shipped with every product in today's connected world, I think you have some issues with your expectations vs reality. It's called "Conserve Valet" for a reason.

2) complaints/concerns that it doesn't charge every device or that devices aren't fully charged. The product clearly states that each USB port is rated at 500mA and that if your devices, such as many smartphones and other devices with large and/or color screens, require more power than this they will not be fully charged. It also mentions that you should not charge more than 2 devices with large color screens simultaneously. I'm not saying that it wouldn't be nice to be able to change anything and everything and have the device still perform as much conservation as possible - but to order the device and then give it a bad rating for something that is explained is unfair to the product.
