Do they do this when charged on their own charger(s)?
You say you've tried multiple devices and they all do the same thing... Kind of narrows it down to that multi USB charger I'd think.

Do you hear this sound if you plug your iPhone directly into an outlet with no surge protector and an Apple power adapter and an Apple charging cable?

When you plug the Mac Mini directly into the wall without the surge protector and then plug the phone in the Mophie case into the Mac Mini, do you still hear the noise?

Try it without it and let me know.

Kind of like I hinted at in post #2 hahaha
I thought you said it was the five-port USB charger, not the surge protector? In post #3, he said it still does it without the five-port USB charger.
