This thing from Aluratek would be a nice little doodad to have by your nightstand, in case you need to charge two phones, plug in an alarm clock, or put in an extra lamp — but don’t want to have to move your bed every time you need to make a change. Pop this guy onto the end of an extension cord and you’ve got a sweet dual-USB, multi-outlet one-stop power shop.
It’s only $20. Why not get one for Dad? Good for on-the-go bloggers, too, if you know any. (this guy)
