Universal Wrist Charger from ThinkGeek

ThinkGeek offers a very portable, wearable universal charger they call the Bracer of Battery Life +2.  Unlike most charge-as-you-go chargers, this battery-extender doesn’t ruin the sleek lines of your phone, mp3 player, or gaming device, and you don’t need a different one for each of your gadgets.  You wear the Bracer on your wrist like a bracelet, and you’ll have a 1500 mAh, 5.5V power source at the ready.  The Bracer has a rechargeable lithium ion battery that recharges with the included USB cable.  There’s a power button, a power status LED, and a 4-LED power level meter.  The Bracer comes with a universal power output cable and nine connectors.  You’ll receive connectors for iPhone, Nokia I (3.5 mm), Nokia II (2 mm), LG, Samsung i900, Sony Ericsson, Sony PSP, NDS Lite, Nintendo DSi, and a mini USB connector for Motorola/HTC/Dopod/and many mp3/mp4 devices.  It’s $34.99 from ThinkGeek.

    Looked interesting for a second, but then I saw it was only a battery you wore like a watch.

    Now if it charged from your bodily motion, like an automatic winding watch, then you’d have something interesting!

    Gosh,

    I wish it was sexy, fun, or permissable for guys to carry bags like gals do.

    Then they wouldn’t have to consider weird things like this.

    They would just stick a battery in their bag.

    I would consider it a weekend wear. But I need a micro usb connector and it’s not clear if one of the 9 connectors are compatible.
