Many of us use our smartphones and tablets to stream videos and movies, but not before we plug them in to make sure there's enough battery life to last the viewing session. But cradling your device for hours at a time can get uncomfortable, especially when you've got a charging cable poking out of it. That's where this Podium-Style Charging Stand comes in handy, and it's on sale for nearly 80 percent off.

Dear Lifehacker, I just bought a new laptop with USB type C charging. The manufacturer's wall charger is rated 45W, and is not modular - the USB-C cable is all one piece with the power adaptor. I'd love to minimise the gear I take on the go, so ideally I'd like a wall charger that is modular so I can plug in a micro USB cable for my phone / Bluetooth headset, and a USB-C cable for my laptop.

The Pebble smartwatch boasts vastly superior battery life to Apple's upcoming wearable, but that doesn't mean you still don't have to regularly keep it charged. So following up on its key-sized smartphone chargers, Nomad is introducing the tiny NomadKey Pebble that includes a magnetic connector for attaching to and charging the smartwatch. It's small enough to keep in your pocket with your keys, so you'll never be without it.

Fuel cell technology gets mentioned all the time, but you'd be hard-pressed to name more than a few implementations that are commonly used today, especially by the general public. eZelleron's "Kraftwerk" could change that, with the 198g gadget apparently capable of recharging an iPhone over 10 times before it needs a quick, three-second refilling.

Prepare to have one those "hey, wait a minute!" moments because it turns out the compact charger that Apple includes with iPhones could actually be doing so much more for you. The similarly-sized ChargeTech not only has folding prongs so it's even easier to transport, it also comes with two side-by-side USB ports that can charge a smartphone and a tablet at the same time.

There's a new challenger to the throne when it comes to replacement laptop chargers that are considerably smaller than the monstrous power adapters typically included with a notebook. And while the Zolt's compact form factor makes it one of the smallest and lightest, what sets it apart -- and ahead -- of the competition is its ability to actually charge a laptop and two other devices all at the same time.

It should be simple: Charge phone overnight, wake up with enough battery to last the day; repeat. Nope. Try more like: Get home way too late, pass out, press snooze 748 times the next morning and get to work at 9:02 either with no phone at all or one whose battery now has about 20 precarious minutes of juice left before dying yet again.

With Christmas lights and glowing decorations already up in houses across the country, this is the time of year that we bring out those rarely-used extra power boards and overload them with double adaptors on top of other adaptors. The ACCC wants you to check those boards for defects, though, with over 200,000 unsafe power boards and double adaptors sold across Australia within the last few months.
