The Goods: Kensington Wall/Air Ultra Compact Notebook Power Adapter

News

Vibe / January 16, 2010

There’s nothing more boring than sitting at an airport with a dead cell phone battery and a laptop that’s on the fritz. Especially when there’s, like, six outlets in the entire place and a gang of people hovering around each and every one of them. But thanks to the Kensington Wall/Air Ultra Compact Notebook Power Adapter (which, we swear, is a lot smaller than its name indicates), you can charge your cell phone and laptop with one easy-to-use adapter. It comes equipped with a number of adapters that fit most laptops (except, unfortunately, MacBooks because Apple doesn’t license out their MagSafe technology). Priced at $120, it also comes with an airline charging cable so you can stay charged when you’re in the air, too. Check for it to drop here early next month. —Chris Yuscavage
