There are two ways to solve the problems posed by the short cables in gadget chargers – we can either get longer cables or get more accessible outlets. Etsy artist Jordan Waters makes the latter: a table lamp that’s equipped with USB ports as well as an AC outlet. I’d call it high-tech, but then it uses a conventional bulb as a light source.
You can order the lamp from Waters’ Boss Lamps Etsy shop. It comes in a variety of designs and has two versions: the single charging station pictured above sells for $95 (USD), while the dual charging station – which has a total of 4 USB ports and two outlets – sells for $125.
