SnapPower Charger

Cutting out the middleman is almost always a good thing, and that certainly holds true when it comes to powering up our gadgets.

The new SnapPower Charger lets you easily add a USB charging port to any standard outlet in your home. That means no need for power adapters when seeking juice; just plug your USB cable directly into the wall outlet. The key is the power prong technology in the replacement cover plate. The plate contains a pair of metal prongs that reach around the existing outlet and make contact with the screws holding its electrical wiring in place. Snap it on and screw it in and you’ve got a powered-up USB port ready to go—no extra wiring needed. The folks at SnapPower are only asking $12 right now for one of these, or two for $20. [Purchase]
