Ever needed to charge your smartphone overnight, armed only with a USB cable? Ended up telling your laptop not to put itself to sleep and leaving it on overnight just to charge your phone, wasting a ridiculous amount of electricity in the process? Thought so. Ventev’s EcoCHARGE is a great new product that will put an end to that – and it also eliminates standby power draw (which doesn’t sound nearly as cool as vampire draw, but is the same thing).
The EcoCHARGE has been designed specifically to fit into any power outlet without covering adjacent outlets, and there’s even a universal USB charger hidden in the plug itself, so you can charge two devices at once.
It’s available now for $30 in micro-USB and mini-USB versions, with an Apple-centric dock connector version coming soon. Head to ventev.com to order yours.
