The aptly named Icon charger appears to look like the battery icon on the iPhone. When you plug it in, it starts shining like a National guitar and shows the current battery level until the juice is juiced. Charlie at Wired has been looking for this strange beast but was unable to find it in stock, which suggests, sadly, that it’s just a concept.
You can check out the product page here but you won’t find much comfort as they don’t have a “Buy” link. Luckily, the device “has been entitled by the Taiwan Good Design (GD-Mark).”
