For several years now, it’s been possible to buy Swiss Army Knives with flash drives. The USB Utility Charge Tool, while it’s obviously inspired by the Swiss Army Knife, is a little different – it contains four fold-out plugs for charging or syncing your electronic devices.
Amongst its plugs is a standard USB connector, that can be stuck into the USB port of a computer. Up to three other devices can then be plugged into its other connectors, which consist of a micro USB, mini USB, and Apple 30-pin plug. As all of the secondary connectors are linked to the main USB plug, the attached devices can then be charged from the computer.
Hey, it beats having a drawer full of tangled-up cables, as long as you don't require much reach.
The USB Utility Charge Tool is available now for preorder via the first link below, at a price of US$20. It should start shipping as of May 20th.
