USB everywhere

Thumbnail of USB charger When I go travelling abroad I hate carrying around multiple power adapters, so I've tried to concentrate on accumulating USB devices that double as chargers. I have such a cable for my mobile phone and my Palm Pilot, but devices that took AA batteries were the exception.

That is, until Matt pointed me to the GP Powerbank USB battery charger. This neat device comes with four relatively decent AA NiMH cells, and will charge them via power from the USB port. Finally, I can keep the digital camera and MP3 player nicely charged when travelling.
