“After getting our hands on it and testing it out on just about every portable device we have, we’ve come to the conclusion that the Chargepod is the future of gadget charging.” – Gizmodo
The Chargepod is a 6-way charging device that allows you to charge multiple cell phones, PDAs, headsets, portable gaming devices, MP3 players (e.g. iPod/iPhone), Blackberrys and other mobile electronic devices with a single power cord from almost anywhere including at home, in the car or at the office.
“The Chargepod allows users the freedom of using one charger for virtually all of their portable electronic devices,” said Darren Guccione, President, CEO and Co-Founder of Callpod Inc. “More and more users tend to change gadgets sometimes two or three times a year and end up buying more and more home, office and mobile chargers that become difficult to manage or travel with, in addition they take up too many outlets and waste both energy and space. The Chargepod provides an economical, efficient and space-saving solution for everyone who uses portable electronics.”
Perfect at Home, At the Office or On the Road
Just pick out the manufacturer-specific adapters for your devices and throw away the dozens of power cords that are cluttering your office, home or car.
The Chargepod uses voltage regulator technology and interchangeable power adapters to safely charge all of your mobile devices regardless of manufacturer or model. The Chargepod comes with an AC adapter; users can also purchase the car adapter for use in an automobile, making it an extremely versatile product for the mobile traveler or business user.
Clean up the Mess–Plug in 1 Device Instead of 6
The Chargepod takes an existing technology and makes it better, more convenient and user-friendly. People are looking to reduce the amount of wires they have and if not eliminate them all together. The Chargepod turns six wires and clunky wall outlet extenders into one, making things neater, more efficient and simple for anyone using it.
Charge at home, in the office or in the car
