Battery Bracelet: Extra Power for Portable Gadgets

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  October 20, 2007


Ever find yourself running out of juice in your mobile gadget? Leave it to the wizards at Japan’s Thanko to come up with a new way to keep your devices charged long beyond their standard battery capacity.

Thanko Charger Bracelet

The charger bracelet straps around your wrist and provides supplemental power to you portable gear when you’re on the road. While it may look a bit silly, it’s actually a pretty useful concept. Just pre-charge the bracelet using your USB port, and wear it on your arm. When your gadget is on its last breath, plug it in, and you’re ready to go.

Gamers will get an additional 15 to 20 hours of play time on the DS Lite, and about 3.5 to 4.5 hours extra on the battery-hog PSP. While the adapters for the Nintendo DS Lite and Sony PSP will definitely come in handy outside of Japan, most of the other devices it works with are more region-specific (like DoCoMo and SoftBank phones).

If you don’t mind looking a little bit goofy, you can pick one up from Thanko for ¥4,980 (appx. $43 USD).
