iGo Juice 70
If you’ve been away on business over the last year then your know that taking a plethora of digital devices with you means one thing and one thing only. Loads of cables and let’s not forget the power adapters either.
iGo aims to stop this barrage of wires, plugs and adaptors with the Juice70 - A device that purports to charge everything at once, the concept is simple. Create a single power device, then provide different ports and tips to fit the vast range of power sockets that most laptops etc have. From here, the plan is to create a bridging system that allows you to charge different devices at the same time.
But does it work? The concept is simple and so is the application. As I write this, it's powering my laptop and mobile phone all from one socket. Quantify this further and I’ve just saved enough space in the suitcase to get in a couple more CDs or even DVDs to watch on the flight over.
Better still the device ships with an adaptor for planes and cars making this ideal for on-the-road salesmen who needs to keep everything powered.
What’s the catch I hear you cry? Well at the moment it is a tad expensive when you measure it up against perhaps the savings you would get buying the single adaptors. At the time of this review it’s retailing at £99, you then have to add the mobile/PDA adapter to this - another £15 - and then depending on what laptop or device you are running, money for extra adapters, making this soon spiral out of control.
