USBCELL rechargeable battery
Moxia in the UK has come out with a rechargeable battery which tops off on any powered USB port. Appropriately named, the USBCELL, requires no cables or wires, simply plug it into any available USB port (including those on your Playstation, XBOX, and powered hub).
Not only can it be used like a normal battery and recharged simply by plugging into a USB port, a few minutes of charging will usually give you a few hours of power. An LED indicator provides "intelligent charging."
At the moment, it's available in a AA format with a mini-USB connector and also with a folding full-size USB, and with convertors.
So where can you get this revolutionary recharable battery? Now it is available in the USA, Canada, Australia and most of Europe.
Also, in January of 2007, USBCELL was a Design Week finalist for best consumer product of 2006.
