Default ? for I.T. and home theatre folk

I'm trying to tidy up the back of my TV. I have three seperate plug in chargers for wi fi router, and internet digital TV box.

Can I use the same kind of thing I have for the mobile phones and tablets to replace them?
This is the kind of thing I have, will it run continous devices?

does it delever the power requirements you need to operate all three...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

I've just looked very closely at them. The writing was so small I had to use a magnyfying glass and a flashlight.
I am surprised at the outcome and I think I've just answered my own question.
I was assuming they were all 5 volt. Wrong!

1 says 24 vdc @0.8amp.
1 says 12vdc x 1 amp
1 says 5 vdc x 1 amp

Oh well, luckily the TV hides them all.

I feel your pain. Those little power supplies are practically littering our house. I found some multiple outlet boxes with the blades oriented 90 to the sides so the adapter hangs over the side. Mounted on a wall, this makes a very neat arrangement. We're in the process of replacing our aging TVs, and I'm giving up on wall mounts, just too hard to get to the electronics when necessary. I did get a really substantial uninterruptable power supply that everything plugs into. We constantly have quick powre outages that crash the drive in the cable box and force a complete reboot, When it trips, it makes a high pitched whine and has to be reset to shut off the signal. Don't mind if the TV goes off, but we've been waiting a week for a new cable box to arrive. All our recorded stuff is, poof, gone. Going all HDMI this time.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

My original concern was whether the single multi charger would run the boxes 24 /7, But when I looked closely and found that 24 volt one amongst them.... game over.

Bob, look for a multi-port USB chargers that have at least 2.1 amps per port. The one you are looking at does not have enough current for iPads, or the newer version of iPhones or Samsung phones. Almost all of today's electronics are happier with 2.1 amps or more.

Bob,
Are those power supplies or chargers? I haven't seen Power supplies that have USB connections for a cable box, etc.?

Also is it volts or watts?

I wanted to replace the three bulky supplies that take up three wall sockets by replacing with one power supply. But I didnt check them properly before posting and did not realise they were three different voltages.
I'll just move them all up the wall to be hidden behind the TV.
