If you’ve found yourself traveling with your iPhone, camera battery or other electronic device running on empty with only one outlet in sight, you can now charge up all those devices in one fell swoop with opens in a new windowChargerGenie, the world’s first charging tote bag. It features a built-in power strip allowing users to charge up to eight devices at a time.
ChargerGenie is currently available in three colors – black, red or pink cheetah – looks like a fashion tote and features a “secret weapon,” six power outlets and two USB ports distributed around the lower perimeter of the bag. In the base of the bag, there is a cord that powers ChargerGenie and can be stored inside when not in use.
Several times when traveling I’ve run into situations where I needed to charge my iPhone, Droid, iPad, laptop and camera batteries at once but only had access to one outlet. I’ve traveled with a power strip, especially to tech and blogger conferences and honestly, it’s not that convenient doing so.
ChargerGenie seems to be a multi-purpose solution – it can be packed with charging cords and whatever else will fit in it – like that quart-sized bag with my liquids. When a charge is needed, plug it in and connect items needing to be charged. After charging, place items back in the tote, that way cords and chargers have a smaller chance of getting lost.
Additional Benefits of ChargerGenie Include:
- No More Lost Chargers – Saves money by eliminating the problem of lost chargers, which are frequently left behind in hotel rooms and on the road.
- Easy Grab-and-Go Travel – Fits over the handle of most rolling suitcases and packs easily into any travel bag.
- Reduce Clutter – Improves organization by keeping chargers and accessories neatly stored inside ChargerGenie.
