Aha! Design: An Electronics Charging Drawer

My laptop is currently homeless. It hangs out during the day on the couch, sometimes travels to the dining table, and has been known to lounge on occasion on top of my bed, but it doesn’t have a dedicated docking spot—a quiet, dark nook to go into sleep mode and recharge its batteries.

An electronics charging drawer is what it’s pining for. Here are some great examples I’ve recently found in its browser history.
