Another issue I'm running into is maintaining electronics. As we get more and more they are harder to keep track of making sure they all stay charged.

I had been standardizing on AA batteries but a lot of devices are not available in AA or still drain the batteries when off so you have to spend a lot of time swapping and charging batteries.

For all lower power devices (i.e. not phone or tablet) I have a bunch of short usb cables plugged into a powered hub so I can charge top off everything once a week.
