They say that the best way to develop a great product is to find a need and fill it. Perhaps the design team at DigitalTech didn't look hard enough when they came up with their Touchstone portable gadget charger / hand warmer hybrid. It's not that the two functions of the device aren't useful —it can charge just about anything and my hands could stand to be a little toastier in the winter months —I'm just not sure that these functions make a lot of sense together.

Available for around $44. [Product Page via TFTS]
