Last night at CES Unveiled, my favorite new gadget was the Powertech Ultra Slim USB Charger. The foldaway plug shrinks in size to create a flat charger that easily stores in your laptop bag. It wasn’t connected to power, so I couldn’t check to make sure the USB ports were strong enough to power an iPad, but they will definitely work on your iPhone, Kindle or other USB charging device. In addition to the two USB ports, there were two electrical plugs as well.
You can see a video of it here:
I have been using Powertech’s EZ GO Travel Outlet for the last few months and it has been a very reliable charger. The USB ports aren’t able to power my iPad, so I have to plug in the charger to one of the outlets, but other than that, it has been wonderful. I love that the cord is long enough to reach behind the nightstand in the hotel. That is one thing I DON’T like about this new Ultra Slim Charger. Without a cord, it makes me leave my iPhone, iPad and other things that need charging near the outlet. Sometimes nothing can beat a good old extension cord.
