Even though our gadgets are fully charged, they’ll often continue to draw power.  This is not only a tax on your power bill, but isn’t environmentally friendly.  The resolve?  Score yourself a power strip that eliminates this shortcoming.   However, a power strip is hardly practical if you’re on the road and only have some much storage space in your pullman suitcase.

Enter Bracketron’s Mushroom GreenZero and Stone GreenZero wall chargers.  They’re pocket sized devices built to charge your portable device.  Both models feature a USB port and will automatically shutdown once your smartphone or tablet is fully charged.  The Mushroom model features a mushroom inspired cap that when pressed by your hand or foot, initiates charging.  The Stone is the smaller of the two and includes a small power button – it’s designed for those who are traveling, but either model should suffice.

Bracketron will sell a few different versions of both models with variable pricing depending on what cord is needed for your device.  The price will range from  $24.95 to $34.95 – the top price reflects a version that includes an iPhone cable.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
