The latest gadget hit to make its way to Kickstarter is called SnapPower. The concept behind SnapPower is to have a USB charger built into conventional wall socket that can be used to charge any device, from your phone to your tablet and just about any other device that is powered via a USB cable. SnapPower is being created to solve an ever increasing problem, and that is our desire to own more and more gadgets and with more gadgets come more power adaptors. The issue with conventional power adaptors is that they are required for charging many of today’s devices, and are often not available to us in the most convenient fashion and can occasionally become misplaced.
The huge advantage of the SnapPower Charger is that we would be able to charge any of our USB based charging devices using a power outlet in any one room in our homes, without having to look for that ever elusive power adaptor. In itself the SnapPower Charger is hugely advantageous around the home, but its possibilities would be almost endless if it were to be mass adopted in a more commercial setting. For example, if you were going away for a bit and happened to forget your adaptor but had a spare USB cable, you could simply charge your devices from a power outlet in a hotel. Of course the added benefit of this is you wouldn’t have to carry your power adaptors around with you, but simply the USB cable.
The picture above shows just how practical this invention really is, as it doesn’t interfere with any other devices in your home as it is of course connected via its own socket, and therefore there are more free power outlets available to you should you need them. More information on the SnapPower Charger can be found on its official Kickstarter page.
