It is asking too much. That beast doesn't exist yet. The closest you
will find that has all the capabilities you described is the Alpha 4,
but its hard to get and limited to 1amp. If you go the other way, you
can find a two port charger, but it will be limited in a few others
Then finally, you can get everything you want, but in a single port
charger, such as the Super Nova or similar.
And finally, if you are willing to spend big bucks, you cold get
everything you want in an industrial charger, but it would be
expensive, and overkill.
