You know what the best thing about “standards” are? There are so many to choose from. Know what the worst thing about AC power adapters is? See the previous joke about standards. Wall warts take up precious AC outlets, as well as needed space on AC outlets. (Raise your hand if you own at least one wart that blocks an adjacent power outlet. Thought so.) And don’t even get us started on the topic of cable dangling/wrangling.
If you’re fighting gizmo-charging clutter, the IDAPT i4 Universal Charger may be your salvation. This sleek, modular power station uses plug-in charging tips to juice up three different devices; a fourth can tap into the side-mounted USB port. You can pick the US$59.95 default kit with six plugs (iPhone/iPod, mini- and micro-USB, plus Nokia 2, Sony Ericsson 2, and Samsung 4), or get four plugs of your choosing. And don’t worry about obsolescence: IDAPT carries a wide range of charging tips at US$9.99 each, including ones that’ll charge Nintendo hand-held game consoles and even AA batteries.
