    I don't know why I'm finding very little on this. I've got 5 ipads in the house and would like to be able to stack them or store them in a space saving way and also charge them. I don't want to buy something that has built in charging as I have that covered. I was thinking like a small mailbox organizer or something or a thick envelope rack. They are in Otterbox cases.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    I've been looking at those as well. I tried one that was too flimsy for the weight of the otterboxes last night.

    I think the second sentence answers why you find little on this.

    He already has cases and a method to charge it. He just needs a way to store it.


    To the OP, I don't think you'll find anything. As everything out there offers a way to charge them as well. I have an idea but it may be a little cumbersome and big. Buy a 5 drawer cabinet out of plastic and drill a hole in the back for the USB cables. Each iPad will have its own drawer that you could even put in accessories (given that each iPad is for a different member of the household.)

    I actually never thought to check that one out but it could be a decent lead on something.

    Is it so hard to imagine having 5? A family of 5, each with their own iPads, for example. Me and my partner have 4, because we each have an iPad 3, but we are both holding on to a previous model as a spare. Lots of ways people can end up with 5!

    I have a 3. Wife has a 2. 9 year old has a 2. Gave my 2 iPad 1's to the younger kids. It was worth keeping my old ones rather than listen to them fight over one all summer...lol.

    Perhaps something like this?

    Just put it somewhere near an outlet and you should be good to go.
