AA-powered emergency cell phone charger
Okay, so it looks like a pepper spray gone (or trying to be) funkadelic, but you'll be thankful for this little baby when it jumpstarts your cell phone on one of those road-warrior days when you're not near a power outlet long enough to recharge it properly. The functionally-named Emergency Phone Charger just needs one AA battery and it can boost a phone to run for up to an additional two hours. And since it's only a bit larger than the AA battery it contains, it's small enough to be popped into a handbag without adding much weight or bulk.
The Emergency Phone comes with 4 adaptors so it can work with just about any cell phone. The only downside I can see for now is that it's available in only one colour --- the shriekingly obvious turquoise pictured here. But hey, at least that'll make it easy to spot when you need to grab it from your bag.
Available for £5.95 on pre-order from i want one of those.
