I don't know about you, but I like to have a status LED on my gadgets that lets me know when they are fully charged so I don't have to manually turn them on to check the battery level. Most of the Android smartphones that I've owned have this feature, but Apple's iPhones and iPads [...]

If you're like me, you may have devices that have different power/data connections, the most common being the Apple Lightening connector and the more standard µUSB connector.  In my case I have an iPad mini and a Moto G phone, both of which I carry with me most of the time.  This means I have [...]
