We’ve all seen those mini mobile phone rechargers at airports, but Duracell has released a line of rechargeable pocket chargers that can refill any USB-compatible device (like iPhones) through compatibility with your own adaptors. And our favourite model is cheap.
Duracell Instant Charger: $US20
Duracell Powerhouse Charger: $US50
Duracell’s Instant Charger is a perfectly executed little gadget. And its older sibling, the Powerhouse Charger, isn’t so bad either.
There’s nothing complicated going on. These chargers are essentially a USB port loaded hooked to a lithium ion battery. But it just so happens, that’s all you need.
With no unnecessary buttons or (you’ll only need to navigate an on/off switch) and a simple indicator light (red when charging, green when charged), Duracell’s Instant Charger is a wonderful unitasker.
Most iPhone charging solutions involve cases we don’t need or want, and they can easily reach $US100. Now, Duracell has a few products that can handle pretty much any USB device you can throw at them. And starting at $US20, we can live with the investment. [Duracell]
