Green Plug: A Smarter Charging Stand

Green Plug: A Smarter Charging Stand

Dec 17, 2007

A universal charger, wouldn't that be nice? Green Plug is setting out to change the industry by creating a greener and simpler alternative to charging all of of our devices.

The good? Well we could all have one of these universal charging hubs, which allows us to connect all of our devices. It charges them, cuts off power when it's finished, and gives us a one-stop-shop for all of our charging needs. The bad? Getting consumer electronics manufacturers to buy on and add this technology to their devices.

Green Plug has developed chips and connectors and seems to be busy promoting this to manufacturers. We can't help but wonder, though, isn't this creating a monopoly over charging our gadgets? If everyone makes the switch, won't we be beholden to these hubs to charge our devices?
