YES!!! YES!! Finally someone has made this simple solution a reality! Meet the SnapPower Charger, a wall outlet cover that has a built-in USB charger… and the best part, it can be installed into any outlet without even having to wire anything. This brilliant cover plate was designed by a startup company called SnapPower, who is currently seeking funding on Kickstarter.
The cover plate features a pair of metal prongs that reach around an existing outlet and make contact with the screws holding its electrical wiring in place, giving the USB instant power to charge your electronics. It’s almost funny how simple this solution is to a pretty annoying problem… no more having to hunt down a bulky adapter, and no more having to take up precious plug space.
Check out how simple it really is
You can pre-order one for $16
If all goes smoothly, you can expect to have one by August of this year
This is one thing that should be standard in every home…. what a brilliant idea. They’ve already blown their goal for backing on Kickstarter out of the water, nearly reaching $500,000 in funding. You can check that out here. Let us know what you think and don’t forget to give this a share on Facebook before you go. (h/t Laughing Squid) (via Snap Power)
