2. Charge an iPhone 6S (lightning cable/USB)
3. Charge an Apple Watch (proprietary charger/Qi compatible maybe?)
4. Charge an iPad (lightning cable/USB)
5. Doesn't have a bright light that will keep me awake in a hotel room
6. Connects to the wall with a single AC power cable, 2 prong (not 3)
7. Can easily fit in my carry on suitecase

Any suggestions for a charger? I'm interested in the upcoming Apple AirPower but I suspect it will be way to expensive and I don't think it will support additional USB inputs for non wireless charging devices.

Right now, I'm thinking one of these might be my only option (search on Amazon as I'm not allowed to post links yet:

2-Outlet Desktop Surge Protector Power Strip with 4 USB Charging Ports (5V/6.8A)-Smart Fast Travel Multi USB Charger Hub for iPhone, iPad, Smart phone, Tablet and More devices-6 Ft Cord


UPWADE Portable Universal 100V-240V 2 Outlets Surge Protector Travel Power Strip with 4 Smart USB Charger Ports (Max 5V 4.2A) 1200W and 5ft Long Extension Cord Multi-Port Wall Charger Station-Black
I use the "Anker 60W 6-Port USB Wall Charger, PowerPort 6 for iPhone X/ 8/ 7 / 6s / Plus, iPad Pro / Air 2 / mini/ iPod, Galaxy S7 / S6 / Edge / Plus, Note 5 / 4, LG, Nexus, HTC and More".
Amazon Amazon

Stupid long description, but super useful too. It's about the size of 2 decks of cards side-by-side, has a single two-prong AC cord, and six fast charge USB ports. I carry one in my suitcase and use it every night to charge 2 Galaxy phones, an iPad, a smart watch, a GPS running watch, and a bluetooth headset. I still need to carry cords for everything, but getting rid of the various wall warts is worth it to me.

I like it so much I bought a 2nd one for the house. I used velcro to stick it to the side of the nightstand and use it for phones and iPads for the wife (and me, when I am home).
