By far, one of the most innovative inventions that I have ever seen. This seemingly innocuous looking coffee cup connects on one end to your cigarette lighter (present in every car these days) and converts that DC power into AC power – in the form of 2 power sockets – which you can then use to charge your IPODs, mobile phones, whatever. The coolness of it is its shape. Almost every car these days comes with a cup holder, and this chap just sits snugly there. No searching for a place to keep this. No more ugly looking anti-slip mouse-pad looking pad on your dashboard.
Oooh Shiny. Me want me want …. (But then, I see it is now available only for 120V US style sockets. Hmm, universal adapter anyone ?
