    "I wish there was something I could use that would charge everything I owned all at once!!" Don't fear extremely tech savvy older lady, iHome has got you covered! Yes, you heard right, or if you can see, saw the picture, and you now know that iHome isn't some white or black alarm clock radio thing that you can plop your iPhone/iPod into anymore. It is now the He-Man of bedside gizmos. If you have things that need to be charged, and are cussing the designer of your humble abode for not in...

    Need a reason to drop a few more dollars on the geeky things you know and love? Today's gadget won't be one that fulfills only lust, but utility as well. The USBCell is so ingenious and simple in design that it pains me to think that I didn't coin this up first. But I digress, the USBCell... Basically, it's a nickle metal hydride battery with a removable top cap that exposes a standard USB plug. Pop it into your ever plentiful USB port and whip up a 90% charge in 5 hours or a 50% charge i...

    The inevitable part about any gadget is that it is going to die. Batteries just don't last forever. Even on some of today's most electron frugal devices, a full day is really stretching it. Luckily things called outlets and USB ports meander around us to save the day. Though as many of us know, actually finding a power source while on the go can be quite the chore. That's where Sony's new portable USB power supply comes in. Joining the arsenal of countless other mobile charging solutions...

    Have you hugged a tree today? If not, don't fret. Simply pick up a pair of the Orange Power Wellies boots -- a pair of boots that uses heat from every foot step to recharge your phone. I often forget to bring my charging cable with me, resulting in a power depleted phone by midday. Though I doubt I'd ever forget my feet (unless someone else was using them of course). Precisely the phone accessory I could use. However, the reported 12-hour stomp session that only nets you an hour of charg...

    Finally jumped head on into the new age of gaming compliments of the PS3 and Xbox 360? Depending on how many other bodies you cater to, quite the collection of controllers could be loitering around your living room. Stowing said controllers usually entails tossing them in a drawer and forgetting about them until you need them. But there's a better (and cooler) way. (more...)...

    Venturing into the open world, far from outlets is a gadget lovers worst nightmare. I mean, if we actually use our gadgets like the manufactures market them for, we'll suck the battery dry in only a few hours. And as already stated, what's the point of mobile gadgets if your're always tethered to a wall or not able to venture far from one? Enter the land of the "YoGen": a mobile charger powered by the very motions of your hands. It isn't the first to toy around with human powered charging,...

    Posted January 4th, 2010 at 11:38 am
    Mobile power generators for things such as flashlights and consumer electronics are becoming increasingly popular as more and more people adopt such things. In regards to flashlights, simple "shake" designs allow users to shake the light for a specified amount of time time to create clean energy. That's all fine and dandy, but even the flashlight style shaker isn't exactly the smallest or most portable design. Enter the realm of the Finger Charger. This concept is an ingenious creation coi...

    by Eric

    It certainly seems like more and more these days, we're charging our electronic gadgets not by the standard power outlets in our walls, but via Universal Serial Bus (or USB) cables plugged into other gadgets of ours -- like laptops, for instance. But we certainly can't lug around one piece of equipment at all times to charge another. Sometimes we have to revert to the "classical methodology" -- plugging into the wall. Which is why the USB power outlet we have pictured is sheer genius. ...

    Oh the wonderful world of LEGOs how we love thee. Having some nerdy gadgets stashed away in your private layer or command center is cool.

Created by John Edgar Park of Makezine, he claims he got the inspiration for the project when he saw a LEGO key holder on a recent trip to LEGOland. Using is craftiness he threw toget...
