In today’s world as an individual or a geek many of you (including me) owns multiple gadgets and at some point during day, they need charging. It could be a problem to charge multiple devices at once if there are limited number of power outlets available in room. Sometimes it’s a headache to charge all the devices at once and to overcome this problem in this post I’m sharing a small solution which offers you to charge multiple devices at once. Well, this small solution called, thingCHARGER (also act as universal adapter for all devices). Now, the question arises what is thingCHARGER?
According to the campaign running on Indiegogo,
“thingCHARGER is a simple, elegant new way to charge all your things. Just plug it into any outlet and you’ll have a neat charging station — free of ugly wires.
Plug 2 or 3 thingCHARGERs together and charge all your things at once”
thingCHARGER plug-in over an existing outlet and leaves the outlet usable for other electronics. It features tips on top, which can be used to charge smartphones, tablets, e-readers or simply any other device. Each charger comes with several interchangeable charging tips and it can handle almost any device. The team behind the thingCHARGER says that, it is compatible with lots of smartphones, tablets and other devices (you can find the complete list of compatible devices here). Each thingCHARGER comes with two USB ports hidden beneath it, so if a situation arises where one needs to charge many devices at a time, it’s possible to do so without taking up the main power outlets. thingCHARGER will ship with Apple-30 pin, Micro-USB and Mini-USB tips with Apple Lightning as a $9 optional extra.
Pricing And Availability
thingCHARGER costs $29 if you buy single one and as mentioned above by default Apple’s Lightning connector tip is not included & you have to pay $9 extra to get it. As of now, the charger is compatible only with USA-based plugs but developers have plans to increase the compatibility in other countries too. It will be available in first quarter of 2014.
In the meantime, here’s a video of how the nifty thingCHARGER works.
