U-Socket makes charging USB devices easier than ever


If you’re anything like me, I almost always charge my iPhone on my Mac or speaker dock. That said, I can never find the USB wall plug Apple ships with the iPhone.

The guys and gals at ThinkGeek seem to have solved this problem for me.

Here’s the company’s video for installation, which doesn’t look too tricky at all:
