I just use a standard USB hub with a power input

Take apart the usb hub and disconnect the data lines from the hubs circuitry (Just cut the tracks) and then solder the data lines together (this lets the phone draw more than 500ma from the socket)

Then I use a big beefy power adapter, I thinks its 3a

Overall only cost me a few 's and it can easily charge between 1 and 5 devices depending on power draw of each device (can charge 3 phones at 1a each)

EDIT: I use one of these but with a 3a power supply: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/High-Speed...item43b7edce59

I've noticed that this phone is stupidly picky about USB cords and charging medium. It really only likes the original USB cable and wall charger.

I've used a mini to micro usb adapter on a mini usb cable and it worked to charge my one x through my television. I mean, I guess I'm just lucky, but I've never had a problem using any cable medium or any charging source.

I'm using my stock one, much better quality than my N7 charger which has been half broken since I opened the box; the damn casing around the end of the usb comes off really easily - ill need to glue it in place, feels a bit sketchy having copper wire at your finger tips, even if its low volts/amp.

I purchased this one for my Nexus 7 and it's also excellent for the HOX. Unlike many chargers, it puts out a full 2 amps even with non-Apple-devices. The HOX only draws what it needs, but it seems to charge quicker with this adapter than with stock. Plus two ports, so you can charge up two devices. (Although voltage is split between the ports if you have two things plugged in.)
