On any given business trip there are a certain amount of electronics that accompany me. Can anyone explain why we have to have such big honking plugs? Unless you travel with a power strip ( which didn't occur to me until this very second) you have to use a divide and conquer strategy for plugging in all your stuff in the hotel room because these plugs --or are they adapters ( and what is the difference?)won't share a standard two plug outlet...they're TOO BIG.
A few months ago I purchased this iGo adapter. I use it for my blackberry. The idea is that you you can use I adapter and then change the tip for your various electronic devices.Which is a great concept except when you need to charge two devices at the same time. Say when you need to charge your blackberry at the same time you want to listen to your iPod.
Along for the trip is my adapter for my Sony mini recorder. I detest this adapter/plug. It will only fit in the bottom outlet. The prongs fold when its not in use.I guess the idea is for easy packing but it takes a tool to pry out the prongs from their resting position and then when you think you have it good to go, it snaps back into the resting position. Who has time for this?
Last but not least the plug/adapter for my laptop. It has stuff coming and going from both ends.
If I hadn't lost the plug to my portable speakers to listen to my iPod when I moved in October I would have brought that along as well.
In the short-term since hotels can't offer more outlets, I want hotels to offer powerstrips. In the near future I want everything to go wireless. No more plugs. No more long cords. I want to take one standard Bluetooth mega charging thing ( that is small and cute and easy to pack) and then I want to be able to charge everything from that one source.
Where are the Jetsons when you need them?
