Flipit! Plug-Less USB Charger - When traveling, sockets in hotels, airplanes and airports are hard to come by--when finally find one they're usually already being used. With the Flipit! Plug-Less USB Charger you can slip this right in between whatever is already plugged in, without blocking any ports. If someone at the airport is using a socket, you can use the same one at the same time with the Flipit.
