Electronics charging devices have never been worthy of leaving out in plain sight—until now. Here are seven ways to power up in style.  Above: The Oré e Powersleeve is a protective smartphone cover crafted of wood and leather. It pairs with the   Orée P ebble , available in marble (shown here) or wood, to create a wireless charging pad for the iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, and Galaxy S4; €90 for the cover; €110 for the charger. To see more from the line, go to  Cord-Free Living: A Good-Looking Wireless Charger and Other Breakthroughs . Above: P hones can be used for texting, tapping apps, and the like while charging in the  Saidoka iPhone Charging Dock ; $30 for the iPhone 4 model and $50 for the iPhone 5 model at A+R Store. Above: Eastern Collective offers fabric power cables that go beyond the standard-issue white or black. The  Executive Micro USB Cable  (shown here) is compatible with most Android phones, e-readers, and other electronics; $17.95 at Eastern Collective (other colors and patterns available). The  Executive Lightning Cable  is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod for $25.95. Above: The  Germanmade Dock for iPad Mini or iPad Retina  is a birch design that's made, not surprisingly, in Germany; €44.95. Other versions are available, including the Purist Dock for iPhone 5 ; €39.95.  Above: Here's a charging hub that can charge up to four devices at the same time. The Sanctuary4 Charging Station by Bluelounge is compatible with more than 1,500 mobile devices; $140 at the A+R Store. Above: The  Lumber Jack USB Jack  is made of solid maple; $19.95 at CB2.   Above: A design that mimics the plastic clock radios of the 1970s,  Areaware's Alarm Dock is actually a charging spot for the iPhone 5 (a version is also available for the iPhone 4). Run a flip clock app and your charging phone becomes a digital clock; $38 from Areaware. For more options to dress up your devices, see  12 Ways to Warm Up Your Electronics .
