They Took My Idea – USB Power Strip

About three weeks ago I started the process to design a USB power strip where the device would be a dumb down version of a USB hub…it only gives power.  The reason why I wanted to design something like this was for the infinite number of USB items I have.  Just in my house alone, we have 3 iPhones, one Flip Video camera and two blue-tooth headsets…all powered and recharged by USB. So enter, stage left, my thought of a USB power strip.  Well, Elcom was thinking the same thing, but only months earlier!  They have officially released the USB for port power strip and the 7 port USB power strip.  Clearly I think the idea is simply brilliant.

Elcom includes LED lights for each port to show if a device is active or not.  They include a switch to flip On or Off that particular port and last, Elcom gives you some clear labels [in English] to label what cable is going to which device.

The 4 port USB power strip is $40.  The 7 port USB power strip is $110.  Both are available at Geek Stuff 4 You.  Page.
