So he pulls out one of the iPad/iPhone power cords and plugs in the
iron. When he's finished (if we are lucky), he unplugs the iron and puts
it and the ironing board away. But he never remembers to plug the
iPad/iPhone connector back in. This explains why my wife keeps on
calling me from her office telling me that although her iPhone was
plugged in all night it's strangely run out of charge (Duh!).
The reason I'm waffling on about this here is that I just heard about the solution to many of these problems – the Power2U AC/USB in-wall power adapter from the guys and gals as Newer Technology (www.newertech.com).
addition to the two regular power sockets, this little beauty also has
two USB ports capable of charging iPhones and iPads. In addition to not
having the iPad/iPhone chargers laying on the floor, this means my son
could do his ironing without disconnecting his mother's iPhone
(strangely, he never unplugs anything that he is charging).
don’t know about you, but I think this is a brilliant idea – clean/good
looking, simple, and incredibly effective (much like myself :-)
