Look at your phone. What’s the battery meter look like? It’s in the red, isn’t it?

You’re not alone. Clinical research has shown that humans aged 8 to 88 deal with intense bouts of charge anxiety on a daily basis, and regrettably, much of that occurs in the home. Wall warts and unsightly charging cubes have long been considered the only remedy, but this year, SnapPower’s Charger has emerged as an over-the-counter miracle cure. Each Charger cover plate offers the following, with no dodgy side effects, guaranteed:

  • A USB-charging cover plate that fits over every standard power outlet already in your home.

  • A wire-free solution that installs in seconds. Literally seconds.

  • A 1-amp charging circuit that’s powerful enough to juice up tablets and phablets, along with today’s most popular smartphones.

  • Your choice of soothing colors to match the outlets already in your abode.

  • A flush, no-hassle install that requires nothing more than a screwdriver. (We aren’t kidding about this no-wiring thing.)

  • Unbridled joy from never having to hunt for a wall charger.

SnapPower’s Charger has launched this month on Kickstarter, and you can reserve yours here. Oh, and multi-packs are available for those with mansions, castles, or any other home/apartment larger than a closet.

While you’re at it, have a look at SnapPower’s first product — the Guidelight — which adds floor lighting to any room with absolutely no wiring to stress over.
