Universal Gadget Wrist Charger: Portable Power at Its Handiest

by Hazel Chua

Picture this: you’ve reached a level that you’ve never reached before and your handheld console is slowly running out of juice. You can’t save your game in the middle, since you can only do so when you reach the end of that level. Just as you’re about to hit save, your console dies and you scream out in agony…

Yeah, that totally happened to me. If you can relate, then you’ll agree what a good idea the Universal Gadget Wrist Charger is.

Wrist ChargerTo the rational majority, it’s a silly device at best, geared to a silly audience – but for those who recognize the need for portable power, then it’s a godsend.

The Wrist Charger AKA Bracer of Battery Life +2 is a universal gadget charger that can provide some last-minute, emergency power to all sorts of mobile devices and gadgets -via a mini USB port (a variety of adapters are included for popular gadget makes and models.) The battery band itself can be recharged using your computer’s USB port, and has a 1500 mAh, 5.5V battery built in.

The Universal Gadget Wrist Charger is currently on sale at ThinkGeek for $39.99(USD). It normally sells for $45.

    I actually own one of these. It was great! At first… The connection to the device itself is a mini-usb which although beloved by myself is waning in trends. However it does come with the handy cord that allows you to adapt from a generic port to several connections. Again this seemed great, but, the adapters themselves are surprisingly cheap and I’ve managed to break 3 of them without even trying. So I figured no big deal I’ll just by a mini to standard USB (fem) adaptor and then use my standard charging cables that I already own. Only it is nigh impossible to find such an adapter. The opposite direction sure, I actually bought one of those by accident, and 2 other incorrect adapters (albeit there were mislabeled). When I had the right one it made the device pretty gangly and unusable to wear while charging a device. On the plus side it looks cool, charges fast, and seems really rugged and solid.

    Long story short (sorry) great idea poorly executed. If they used a standard USB port instead of mini it would solid. But, they did not, and I had such high hopes of using it as part of a Pip-Boy-esque device for my Droid.

      Thanks for the feedback. Good to know about the problems you’ve had with it. Did you contact the seller to get the broken adapters replaced? That’s not right.

        I actually did, but received no reply. At that point I had pretty much chalked it up as a loss. Live and learn I suppose.
