    I don't want to make anything, don't have time. I want to buy it.

    3d printing is a good option if you want to make something for your exact dimensions.

    Get some stickers? Magnets? Stick one in a prettier cabinet that fits the bill?

    This is a professional forum so I won't tell you what I think of that idea.

    Sorry.

    If those lockers are the kind of thing you are thinking of, but want something a bit more stylish, try ETSY or similar websites.

    You could also look at ebay or similar for old architects drawers or library card drawers:

    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Vintage-Fi...8AAOSw~oFZ03gP

    Yes, both of those would require you to get the cables in, but might give you an idea for something a bit different/special

    Get induction charging mats and upgrade any old devices not compatible with them. Can then just 'throw' the devices on the mat when not in use or they need charging.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    I don't think this is practical.

    Seems to me a neat solution would be to change a standard dual socket mains wall outlet to one that has USB charger sockets integrated, many are available now. Then take a small cabinet and stand it in front of the socket(s) with USB charging leads inside the cabinet.
