The iGo Charge Anywhere

The iGo charger ($49.99) is one of the best gadgets I have come across in quite some time.  It can go anywhere and be used to charge more than one item at a time.  It reduces standby power up to 85% which saves time and money too.  The iGo charger works as a wall charger while simultaneously charging itself.  It's quite amazing.  Its integrated battery can then be used to charge items like cell phones, mobile electronics and gaming devices all on its own without being plugged into a wall. 

The iGo has two USB outports (perfect for charging my Blackberry and my husband's all at the same time) and a long USB charging cable (6ft) that works well for travel.  I love how long the cable is, especially in hotel rooms when outlets are not always abundant.  This charger (2.28 x 2.52 x 1.46") is also incredibly lightweight and has foldable wall blades that make storing it in a bag, glove box, or anywhere really easy.  Tips for different devices are available and are easy to plug in or out as well.  It's just a neat, little package all around. 

Recently I have taken it with me to charge my phone in airports, hotels and in my car.  When we went to the beach this summer I didn't have to leave my phone behind if it wasn't fully charged because I just stuck the iGo in my beach bag and charged my phone while at the beach.  It was the perfect set-up.  It also seemed to charge my phone fully in half the time it takes when it is normally plugged into the wall on a standard charger.  I love that! 

The iGo charger is available for netbooks, laptops, cameras, gps systems and many other devices. It is compatible with almost any brand as well.  It's affordable and green. I simply love my iGo!

Oh, very cool! I have an iGo Laptop charger but it doesn't charge itself like this one.
