Idapt i4 Charges 4000 Gadgets, Four At A Time

If you're like me, until your house is beaming juice to your gadgets wirelessly, you will resolutely consider charging stuff a pain in the arse. The Idapt i4 hears us loud and clear and has one word of consolation: consolidation.

The i4 is the latest in a long line of chargers from the company, though this latest and greatest model lets you charge four gadgets (up from the three with the i3, and two with the i2, before that). It also has a shiny finish, which, when charging a Sixaxis controller, gives it the fleeting appearance of a PS3. Bonus!

Of course, the i4 will charge just about anything you throw at it, including "iPhone, iPod, Blackberry, Nintendo DS, PSP, PS3 controller, GPS systems, digital cameras and Bluetooth products", all with the help of interchangeable tips that can be popped in and out of slots on the base. The i4 has three such slots and one USB port, adding up to one gadget-charging grand slam. To peruse the full tip catalogue, consult this page on Idapt's site.

The i4 also sports LED lights to indicate when things are charged up and ready to go, as well as an switch to shut down the whole charging operation, if you feel a sudden pang of guilt about ravaging our planet's precious fossil fuels.

The Idapt i4 will be available in May, in shiny black or shiny white, for $US59.99. [Idapt via [Wired]
