You're at the cafe and you battery is toast but, as usual, every last power outlet is filled. Why beg for time on an outlet like a schmuck when you can ask that cute redhead in the corner if you two can double up using the Share-A-Watt?
The Share-A-Watt mini-power strip incorporates two grounded AC outlets, two USB ports, and integrated surge protection. What's more, at 200g and less than eight inches long, it's easily small enough to dump in your computer bag and forget about until you need it -- or until you "need" it to break the ice. It's available now for $US20 from ThinkGeek.
