Universal all-in-one charging point coming to market

Today’s users usually have quite a few mobile devices that need charging on a regular basis. One may have a cell phone, a laptop, a tablet computer, an MP3 player and even something else not mentioned here. While all these devices work to make our lives easier and more enjoyable they do come with drawbacks such as the need for chargers which are often different (and not interchangeable) for every device. Not to mention that frequently when you need to charge your mobile gizmo there’s no free power point available.

Luckily the people at Datamation Systems Inc. have come up with a solution – a universal adapter that allows the user to charge any device s/he wants.

The new charger, called PowerPad 16, works over USB and allows for the simultaneous charging of up to 16 devices. The unit is quite small (6.75 x 3.75 x 2.2-inches) and is easy to mount next to existing power points. It also comes with four screw holes that allow the device to be installed on a wall in case of need.

There are some drawbacks however. The new device is not exactly targeted at home users although if you need one nobody will stop you from purchasing it. Not being home friendly the charging point is likely to come with a hefty price. In addition as it is designed to power quite a few devices the charger can get noisy due to the integrated large fan that cools the internal Cambrionix USB charging board. The device is also very likely to get hot when all plugs are in use.

Exact cost is unknown as is market availability.
