A lot of our smartphones and tablets and other electronic devices are starting to feature USB charging options, which means we won’t have to lug around an extra charger when we pack to go overseas but sometimes our USB ports are full, and so are our wall plugs, does that mean you won’t get to charge your device? An alternative would be this FlipIt! USB charger that we reported a couple days ago but if that’s not what you’re looking for, how about the U-Socket USB wallplug?
It is a fully functional wallplug except this time it features an extra two USB ports so, like pictured above, you could plug in your iPhone’s USB charger into the wall and charge it from there. Of course some assembly is required which is best left to an electrician or someone more experienced but if you know what you’re doing then you can get this U-Socket for $24.99 at ThinkGeek’s website. Alternatively you can check out this “For Dummies” video here.
