Anker makes a bunch of charging blocks. They definitely have multi-iQ ones. I’ve got both of these which look to fit the bill:

Ah this lead me to the updated version of your 2nd link: View: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07PWC32ZD/?coliid=I2I29VQRYT8F8X&colid=2WIV9Z4ERM2IC&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it



This should work, although I’m tempted to buy a bunch of USB-C to lightning cables just to be uniform even if the iPads wouldn’t benefit at all.

Obligatory "its ridiculous that Apple continues to stick with the lighting connector that has no advantage over USB-C" comment.

Not sure why the new phones aren’t USB C, yea. MacBooks and iirc the new iPad Pros are.

I'm an iOS newbie, so I'm just going to ask a bunch of questions in various forums until I don't hate it anymore.

I know the app is dead/long live the app, but how do people read SoSH? On android, I had a homescreen shortcut to the Federal Politics subforum, then I would hit new posts. I was able to do something similar with Safari, but there's an issue. When I enter a thread, the back button at the bottom of the screen is inactive. The only way to go back is to hit the arrow in the upper left corner, which is not ideal for one handed surfing. If I then go from my shortcut URL to New Posts, I'm fine. Any suggestions?

That's odd. I use safari on my phone and the back button works fine after having clicked on a thread. I use 2 bookmarks, one for view new posts and one for V&N. Never really ran into a problem with it from a browsing perspective.

It's because if you save a page to your home screen, it doesn't actually open in Safari so anytime you click on a link it opens a new browser window. Once in that new window you have no "back" button because there's no Safari history.

I use Google Chrome on my iPhone 8 to access SOSH, no issues at all.

No, I get that, but this is the issue. I click on my shortcut, and it takes me here:

But then I click into a thread, and the back button at the bottom is grayed out. You would think that there's history in that I'm returning to the initial page? The only way to go back is to hit the "Untitled" in the upper left, just under the time.

What you posted is what I said - the first screen isn’t safari technically. The second is a new Safari tab, so no history is there.

Do you have a direct launch to a page you want to go to, or just open chrome, then a bookmark for SoSH?
I just use Chrome for SOSH, nothing else, so it's there when I open. I just refresh. Same with my iPad.
