Like a lot of people with children, found that single USB chargers were taking up all our spare power sockets, especially given the large uk socket. So bought this multi port USB charger shown, this particular model I chose specifically for the amperage readout because I can tell (a) if a device is slow charging due to a bad cable and (b) when all the devices are charged using a single glance. So far seems to work well, Clara's Nexus 7 tablet which is very picky with chargers draws its maximum 1.4A, though I've yet to try it on a 3A device. And it's freed up two uk power sockets, a big help.
