Universal Gadget Wrist Charger



Wrist Charger

A few years back, I blogged about a multi-gadget charger called ChargePod which is very useful for people who own a lot of gadgets because it lets you simultaneously charge cellphones, PDAs, headsets, digital cameras, iPod or any mp3 player and almost any mobile gadget with a single power cord.

The thing about the ChargePod is that you need an outlet to be able to use it and charge your devices. What if you’re always on the go or on the road and don’t have access to any outlets? What you need is a portable universal gadget charger. ThinkGeek has you covered with this cool wrist charger which they call the Bracer of Battery Life +2.

Here’s a short product info from ThinkGeek’s product page:

The Wrist Charger, or as we like to call it, Bracer of Battery Life +2, straps comfortably to your wrist and plugs in to just about any electronic device you like. It’ll power cell phones, mp3 players, gaming systems, or any device compatible with mini USB. Now you’ll have plenty of power to get through long days traveling (or long lines at the DMV, we’ve been there, too!). When you reach your destination, simply plug your bracer in and charge its battery back up so you’re ready with plenty of entertainment for the long trip home.

The Wrist Charger aka Bracer of Battery Life +2 is available at ThinkGeek for $34.99. Aside from being portable, I really like the Wrist Charger because of it’s mini USB compatibility which will let you charge most of today’s gadgets and mobile devices. I was planning on getting one myself but I found out that it was already out of stock. However, I signed up for an email notification when this product gets available again. If you’re interested in purchasing one, you could do the same.

What do you think of the Wrist Charger aka Bracer of Battery Life +2? Is it something you’ll buy and wear? What other features or options would you like to see added to it? Please share your thoughts.

    I bought mine and I regret it. It barely charges my ipod touch 4, it only gives it an extra 15% of battery life.

    @Jacques – That’s right, didn’t think about that. Anyways, that’s just one of the many ways this product can be used. If government agencies will be interested with this type of technology, I’m sure they can develop a much better product.

    This does look like a nice camping / hiking accessory too, where extending the life of gps’s and the like will be very useful. Expect to see military and law enforcement applications too.
