My bedroom has a wall outlet conveniently placed for plugging in my lamp, but it’s not really close enough to allow me to use my iPad while it charges using the standard charging cable. I need a USB extension cable for the iPad charger and another for my iPhone charger so I can use them as they charge. If I had the 15′ Comfortable Reach Charger, I’d be able to charge up to three devices from a single charging station located up to 15′ from the wall outlet. Each USB outlet supplies 2.1A of power, so you can charge power-hungry tablets as well as phones. It works well at home, and it winds up around a spool that also serves as a cradle for the charging head, so it stows compactly in your gear bag for travel, too. It’s $59.95 at Hammacher Schlemmer.
