There’s nothing quite like a powerful idea

Fed up lugging round power-bricks for charging your various bits of kit? Or of having to plug them into a laptop simply to recharge? This is what every hotel-room and conference centre should have — powered USB in the wall socket. Thanks to Glyn Moody for spotting it.

Only available in US power format at present from here. But surely someone will do a UK version soon. (Hope springs eternal, etc.)
