Dexim Visible Green Charger
Price: $34.90 USD
Charging cables are the most heavily used pieces of equipment that users of iOS devices take completely for granted. How exciting can chargers be, right? Dexim may change that perception with their new Visible Green Charging Cable — a system that is not only cool to use, but is also environmentally friendly.
The Dexim Visible Green Charger is designed to eliminate the “vampire” power draw that accounts for close to 10% of the energy consumption in the U.S. This is electricity that is being drawn from the grid by devices that are simply plugged in but are not being used. Maybe it’s a game console that’s turned off or a battery charging cable that’s simply plugged into a fully-charged device. Either way, there is a needless usage of electricity that not only adds to your monthly electrical bill, but also harms the environment with the extra power that’s forced to be generated.

LOT’S of feedback this week (HooRAY! We love feedback!) from Skype and Twitter about iPads and what gear to buy. Allison Sheridon of the NosillaCast Podcast takes exception to Guy calling the Dexim charger fun but worthless, and Gaz’s iPhoto library is slowing to a crawl! What’s up with THAT? Lastly, sometimes the best iOS App is none at all.
