|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.|
The Belkin Conserve Valet Smart USB Charging Station charges up to four mobile devices at the same time and shuts off automatically, so you can minimize clutter and 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.

Customer Reviews of Belkin Conserve Valet Energy Saving USB Charging Station
Does not charge1/6/2014
The conserve valet is supposed to charge USB devices and save power and space. Unfortunately, it does NOT charge many devices, and provides only a minimal charge to other devices. Many I plugged in overnight ended up with less battery than when I plugged them in to charge! It would not charge a blackberry at all, no matter what cables were used. Mine is probably defective, but I would NOT recommend this item.
very good product12/27/2013
It is as good as advertised. Real easy to use!
Power Saver, some what.8/29/2012
The only problem is that once the device is charged it will shut down, then a phone will still using the battery, then a few hours of standby it will not recharge after the battery is drained for a few hours of standby and data usage.
This charger is one of the best buys I have ever m8/23/2012
I have looked at more expensive changing systems (like the IDAPT) and this small Belkin unit is a better fit for my family. We regularly charge three different types of kindle, iPod Touch, iPhones, android phones (motorolla) and mp3 players (sansa). Has been in use continuously for months now I have had to purchase extra cords (you can find them for $1 apiece for USB micro and USB mini) but I do not think of that as a weakness in the product.
Product works as described. Would have been nice to get more cords for certain type chargers but came with 2 different short chargers cords. They should add an Apple short cord. Otherwise happy with the product.
Unfortunately my wife and daughter don't grasp the concept, so I bought this to reduce the likelihood of a phone charger being left plugged in over night, which causes the inverter to stay powered instead of going to sleep. To me, the 4 hr timer is a lot better than no timer at all, so it does what it was designed to do. Phantom loads that most people don't even give a second thought to, will drain my battery bank within a day or two if the inverter continues to run (25 watts vs. 7 watts in sleep).
does charge but poorly designed11/16/2011
The charger failed to live up to expectations. because of 4-hr charging, if you forget to turn it on when you place the device or if you forget the push the charge on button, especially during longer periods of non use (weekends, for example) the charger not only fails to charge but the device actually wakes up nearly dead. a great disadvantage if you forget to turn the unit on every now and then.
I live off-grid with a very small solar system. Because the system was not designed properly (it's a rental, landlord does not grasp "solar power", won't take the oak tree down that's blocking the sun), I get very limited charging, and have to conserve every watt. Unfortunately my wife and daughter don't grasp the concept, so I bought this to reduce the likelihood of a phone charger being left plugged in over night, which causes the inverter to stay powered instead of going to sleep. To me, the 4 hr timer is a lot better than no timer at all, so it does what it was designed to do. Phantom loads that most people don't even give a second thought to, will drain my battery bank within a day or two if the inverter continues to run (25 watts vs. 7 watts in sleep). I do wish this was a bit more intelligent, and actually turned off when the device that's being charged was finished, but then the Conserve Valet would most def. not be $20($40 retail).
Seemed to work well, but...9/12/2011
not for long! I had this item for about 2 months, when it stopped charging my cell phone. Oddly enough, it will still charge my bluetooth headset, but not the phone. Using it to charge one item is just a waste of space. Disappointing! It comes with short charging cords with a few types of connections. I'd also say that (if it continued to work) having additional charger tips available for purchase would be a good thing. I was using the USB charging cables that came with my products, and there is not much room to wrap them out of sight. And it is a pain to get them unwrapped if I need the ability to charge it elsewhere, such as on a trip.
Looks good but not as smart as advertised8/11/2011
I ordered two of these while they were on sale for $19.99. While I do feel it was a great value, it does not operate as I thought it would. When it says it turns off when the device is "fully charge" they mean after ~4 hours so if someone else comes along and adds another device while yours is charging and they do not push the button again, it will shut off regardless of them both being fully charged. Another annoyance is this is not the idle charger for overnight charging. I like to plug my phone in at night and have it fully charged when I leave for work in the morning. Using this unit, the charger shuts off half way through the night and my phone starts depleting again so when I leave my battery is already at 80%. This device is great for midday charges and other devices like bluetooths, cameras, and ipods. I would recommend this to anyone that wants to have a secondary charger that looks sleek and stylish with minimal cord clutter.
