Even though we have a super-comfortable desk, nothing beats relaxing on the couch with a laptop. But when arm's reach outlet space is being taken up by a table lamp and your iPod dock, it can be tough to find a spot to plug it in. If you had this Elecom AC Adapter Tap, you could plug extras right in to your laptop's power cord without disrupting your couch surfing.
You know that funny-looking plug that connects the big, bulky bit of your laptop's power cord to that other cord that actually plugs into the wall? Yeah, we never knew what it was for either, but it turns out we can use the extra connection to our advantage.
This AC Adapter Tap from tech company Elecom can be connected between the power cord and the AC cable to add one or two extra outlets so you don't waste any prime in-wall real estate by moving your laptop around the house. Never again will you need to unplug a lamp to get your battery juiced up!
Good news! It's set to be released this month—but in Osaka, Japan. Still, when these power outlet adapters hit, they'll be priced between 1,470 and 1,995 Yen (About $15-$22), so if you've got any acquaintances traveling to the far East, send 'em off with a $50 and a note to buy you two!
