USB Wall Socket

These days, the iPhone and other devices that we interact with most are USB friendly and often times, USB dependent. So it’s no wonder some genius decided to develop a wall socket equipped with USB ports. Not only does this wall socket allow you to charge devices using USB, but it also potentially doubles the number of things you can power from a single wall socket. Bonus!

The best part is that this socket retrofit can be installed easily on any existing wall outlet. All you’ve got to do is swap them out. Oh, and no need to worry about the vampire effect. The USB ports will only draw power if something is plugged in.

The USB Wall Socket can be preordered here.

Apple Gets in the Battery Game

Apple’s got a new product, again, but this time it’s not a computer, digital music device, or tablet, it’s… a battery charger. Yup, Apple just got into the battery game. Their new battery charger comes with 6 AA nickel-metal hydride (NiMH) rechargeable batteries.

Apple has also brought these products to market with the environment in mind. The new battery charger not only keeps you from buying and throwing away tons of toxin spewing batteries, but it also cuts off power after the batteries come to a full charge. Clever.

The charger comes with a removable AC plug so you can swap it out for other types of plugs if necessary. You can also use any AA NiMH rechargeable battery, not just the ones that come from Apple. You may never buy another battery again, or at least for the next decade, as Apple says their batteries last for 10 years and for hundreds of charges.
