Five Device Recharging Station. So let’s keep it nice and simple, eh? Four AC power ports, two USB ports with surge protection, a cable tidy and a 15 amp circuit breaker just in case. Not only that but you can fold the thing flat for travel, which means that you’ll never be more than a suitcase away from juice for your phone, headset, media player, digicam, VoIP phone and wireless mouse. Of course you may have to leave a few clothes behind to fit all that lot in, but hey, that’s life right? $49.95.
The system draws power from a standard wall outlet and has an integrated surge protector rated at 1,080 joules–the strongest available in a charging station–that thwarts lightning or power spikes up to 6,000 volts and 72,000 amps. Its nonskid surface secures your iPod, PDA, or cell phone, and the charging adapters are routed through two conduits that conceal cords and prevent tangles.
