If you like to keep your devices by your bedside, then a nightstand charging station might be the solution. From nightstands with built-in charging ports to tabletop charging stations that you keep next to your bed, the best nightstand charging stations are compatible with your devices and have space to hold them all. Plus, they will match your bedroom aesthetic. Look for the features that will make the most out of your nightstand space like a lamp, alarm clock, or radio.
What To Consider When Shopping For Nightstand Charging Stations
You’ll need to decide whether you’d like your charging station to be the nightstand itself with a built-in lamp or drawer, or a charger that sits on the top of a bedside table with multiple ports. If you’d like a more clutter-free look, keep an eye out for wireless options or even organizers that hide your cords out of sight. For more mobility, or watching your devices from bed, a nightstand charging station on wheels might be appealing.
It’s important that your charging station has the right ports and wireless charging capabilities for all your devices. For wired charging, most options below have USB-A ports, so you would need an adapter for USB-C or Lightning cords. Or, you can opt for a charging station with an AC power outlet and charge your device using an adapter and cable.
When it comes to wireless, most wireless charging stations are Qi-enabled for your devices — Qi is the industry-wide wireless-charging standard. If you have an iPhone 8 or later, Samsung S4 or later, Google Pixel 3 or later, or another kind of smartphone, your device may be Qi compatible. In terms of charging speeds, the more watts your wireless charging station has, the faster the charge will be — iPhones can support chargers up to 7.5 watts and Android phones can support 10 watts. You don’t need to turn anything on for charging, just place your phone on the wireless charge pad and it should start automatically.
Number of Ports
Look for a charging station that fits your needs — and maybe has a spare port or two for extra items, just in case. Some stations are set up for just a few items, while other stations can charge up to 10 devices at once, so you want to make sure you’re not one port short.
From sleek, wireless valet trays to a set of two bedside tables with power outlets, here are some of the best nightstand charging stations to keep all your devices organized and charged, right where you need them.

It can wirelessly charge Qi-certified devices, including phones from Apple, Samsung, Google, LG, and more, but the brand notes that iPhones 12 and 13 might be a bit more sensitive to placement and can require extra care when aligning.

They’re made of particleboard and a metal frame that reviewers report is easy to assemble with the included tools, and feature a long 6.6-foot cord.

There’s also an ambient light deck (that is not used for wireless charging), but the light can be turned off when you’re going to sleep.
One Reviewer Wrote: “I work as a QA analyst for a product development company. I'm required to do app testing across multiple devices. I have multiple iPhones, Androids, tablets and iPads that I need to keep charged all the time. I bought 2 of these and need 2 more. I also bought a variety of the short charging cables. This charging station allows me to keep all my devices charged as well as neatly organized and it doesn't take up a lot of space. I would recommend this to anyone that has a lot of devices.”
Ports: 10 USB-A ports | Dimensions: 13.5 x 9 x 3.8 inches | Color: 1
8. A Wireless Charging Station & Alarm Clock
- Over 6,000 reviews and an overall 4.5-star rating
- Features an alarm clock, radio, wireless charging station, and USB port
- Display has five brightness levels
- Presetting radio stations can be complicated according to some reviewers
This faux wood alarm clock and radio has several helpful features for a nightstand charging station. It supports wireless charging for Qi-enabled smartphones with a case no thicker than five millimeters, and it has one USB-A port for other devices. The LED display has large 1.2-inch digits and can be adjusted with five levels of brightness. One reviewer reported that it “gets nice and bright for daytime use and incredibly dim and discreet for the night (and I don’t like nighttime light). [It’s] very intuitive and [has] easy to use controls as well, [so] there’s no struggling to change the time.” You can set the alarm to go off with a classic buzzer or the radio, and there’s a sleep timer function for when you need a few more minutes. The alarm clock can be plugged into an outlet or you can put in two AA batteries as backup in case the power goes out.
One Reviewer Wrote: “I have had this alarm clock for nearly a year and it's a pretty good alarm clock. Is it real wood? No--it's a fake plastic wood wrap. But it still looks extremely sleek on my nightstand--much better than any other option I could find. The wireless phone charger works great, even through my phone case. The alarm regretfully only has one sound--a loud beep that always gets me up (obnoxious but it does its job well). Most importantly for me, the alarm clock also has a backup battery, so if your power goes out overnight the alarm will still go off and will remember the time for you.”
Ports: One wireless pad and one USB-A port | Dimensions: 6.4 x 2.9 inches | Colors: 4
Also Great: A Bamboo Multi-Device Cord Organizer

If you’d rather have a nightstand charging station with USB-A ports, there is a version with ports available.
One Reviewer Wrote: “Organizer works well on my nightstand. I keep my tablet, kindle and cell phone on it.”
Ports: Space for five devices, no ports included | Dimensions: 10 x 9 x 5.5 inches | Colors: 3
