If you are away from a mains power supply when the low battery alert starts on your Smartphone you are going to need some way of charging it in order to stay connected. The Solarwave is an interesting idea that comes with a built in solar panel and speaker system. It measures 8 inches (L) x 6 inches (W) x 0.5 inches (H). The powerful battery has enough juice to power up to eight devices on a single charge and comes with four USB ports for charging the devices and one mini USB port for charging Solarwaves battery.
Solarwave uses the power of the sun as an endless power source and has enough battery life without the sun to fully charge eight typical mobile devices. On top of keeping all of your devices charged, it has built in high performance Bluetooth speakers to ensure non-stop entertainment for your family and friends.
The Solarwave charger and speaker system could be going on sale later on in the year with a retail price of around $100, but anyone pre ordering now can bag themselves a bargain by paying just $60 for one in a choice of blue, red or green colours. More details can be found on the Solarwave website.

Sometimes you might just wish that wall mounted power sockets came with a USB version too, after all most of us have a need for this kind of socket in order to charge the batteries of Smartphone’s, tablets and other devices. Well it seems that there is something on the way, it’s called the SnapPower Charger and the good news is you can easily install it yourself as its cover plate that requires no wiring, just clip it into place and you are good to go.
The unit comes with a 1 amp USB socket that is capable of charging any device that uses a USB cable charger, it can be installed in literally no time at all simply turn your power off, unscrew the power outlet cover and replace with the SnapPower Charger. Now you have a double wall power socket with a lovely new USB socket too, how handy is this? However, this presents you with another problem though, who will be using the brand USB charging socket first?
The SnapPower Charger should be launching later on this year, but they are taking pre orders at the moment with prices starting from around $14 for one SnapPower Charger and with no costs for installation on top, that has to be a bargain.

Computer designs are based on slim and lightweight specs these days, so that means when it comes to charge up your devices there could be queue of devices waiting for the port to become vacant. However, the InfiniteUSB cable and connector is a device that allows the user to connect to many InfiniteUSB cables and connectors to just one USB port. Now this is something that seems to make sense and could be a complete time saver. The idea is a simple as you can get it, the connector is standard but the back of it is not as it comes with another USB port ready to be used by another USB connector cable and so on until all of your devices are charging at once.
There is a choice of MicroUSB, Lightning and Female USB connectors available, there is also a choice of some cool colours too, such as blue, orange, green, grey and pink, so there are plenty options available. This could be one of the best ideas based on the USB connection and cable set up, it is especially useful as so many devices these days use a USB connection to charge batteries and synchronise data etc. The InfiniteUSB Slim with one Infinite USB cable in MicroUSB, Lightning or female USB port on your choice can be pre ordered from just $14.
