Let’s be honest, the vast number of things that you charge these days use USB. While you might have an annoying proprietary charger on your laptop or phone, for the majority of devices it’s USB these days.
Thus we live in a time when we’re constantly searching for USB chargers and constantly fighting over them.
So Jerry Smith, who is an inventor and entrepreneur, decided that it would make more sense to just build the USB charger directly into the wall. That’s precisely what he’s achieved with SnapPower – a USB charger that goes right underneath your wall-socket so that you can charge a phone, camera or whatever else with no additional appliance necessary.
It’s a smart idea that should prove highly convenient. And as the name implies, it snaps right on so there’s no need for any complicated hardwiring.
SnapPower is currently raising funds on KickStarter where it has already been incredibly popular. The target sum is $35,000 and they already have $489,180 so it would seem that a lot of people are sick of digging through cluttered drawers to find chargers.
Now you’ll never be searching around with 5% phone battery again!
