The charger folds out Swiss Army knife-style: a mini USB, micro USB and Apple 30-pin connector. The standard USB plug gets popped into a free port on your computer and whatever devices are attached to the other ends start sucking power.

Usually we might be a little critical of a flimsy-looking plastic novelty like this, but the USB Utility Charge Tool could actually be very useful. It’s small enough to carry in your pocket, so you’d never have to worry about grabbing the right cable before you leave the house. Its initial retail price is set at $24, which we consider a pretty sweet deal.
