The Dress A Day Dozen Gift Guide: #1 The Portable USB Power Supply

E686_portable_usb_power_supply_inhand

I know, I know, it's not a dress, but I think this portable USB power supply (from ThinkGeek) is a great present. For $20, you can have a backup charger for your cell phone, mp3 player, what-have-you that holds a charge for up to three months, and is only a quarter-inch thick.

Besides, your loved ones should have one just in case they are ever in a MacGyver-like situation — when someone says "if only we had a Li-Polymer battery cell" they can rummage in their bag and say "Oh, like this one?" before tossing it in their direction. Think how satisfying that would be! (Totally satisfying.) It's like two gifts in one!

(And don't forget — we're still in Charity Drive Time: check out the widget & poll!)

If we reach $1200 in donations by December 25, I will write a new "secret lives" story, that will include the top-two vote-getters below:

  1. If only ThinkGeek used USPS to deliver to Canada instead of the courier companies! They have so many things that I would love to have, but I refuse to pay the outrageous broker fees.

    This power supply would be perfect for me, since I keep forgetting to recharge my cell phone until I really need it!
