Instructables user cbaabc73‘s created his own outlet timer from basic electrical parts that can be found in any hardware store. He made it because his wife would accidentally leave her curling iron on, but I think it could be perfect for a charging station so that your devices aren’t drawing vampire power after they’re done charging.
