The more devices you have, the more outlets you need to charge them. If you're anything like me, you have a few charging cords that you leave constantly plugged in because it's easier even though you have to sacrifice an outlet and waste a bit of energy through power leakage when they're not in use. There is currently an Indiegogo project that aims to change all that, and it looks very much like it's going to become a reality.
Here's a really neat thing: You can use more than one thingCHARGER at a time. So if you've got three devices that need charging at once (and provided said devices are thinner than thingCHARGER), you just stack them up and stick them on the charging tips. Which still leaves your outlets available for other stuff you might want to plug in. Also, only the two original outlets are always on, just as they would be without thingCHARGER. The charging tips and USB ports are only on if you turn them on with the side-mounted power button. No more power leakage when your devices aren't plugged in!
Obviously I'm not the only one who thinks this is a pretty darn fine idea...thingCHARGER has exceeded their $25,000 funding goal by more than $200,000. But you can still get in if you want, no worries. For a minimum bid of $29.00 US you'll receive one thingCHARGER, but they're also offering combination packs for pledges of higher dollar amounts. The funding campaign ends on December 13 at 11:59 PM Pacific.
