No matter which way you dice it, charging our smartphones, music players and other portable devices can be a right royal pain. It’s not just the hassle of having to carry around the right cable for the right device – thank goodness microUSB is becoming more of a standard – but also the guesswork as to how the charge is progressing.
This cute new USB Visible Light Charger Cable takes the uncertainty out of the equation by cleverly showing you the charge rate, literally through light pulses. The faster the charge rate, the faster the LED bulbs pulse inside the cable. It’s a brilliant solution and one that’s sure to catch on everywhere. The kit comes with a range of adapters for almost all devices, and costs $20.00 for a 20cm length of cable.
