Bleeding Edge 072: CES 2007 Video: PowerStick Provides Juice On The Go

At CES this year we got a chance to meet with Andrew Kular, CEO of Ecosol Technologies. Ecosol has won the CES Innovations award this year for their Powerstick, a portable power solution for gadgets. The Powerstick is a small device that looks like a thick USB memory key, but does something far more valuble to the geek on the go: provide power for empty gadgets quickly and efficiently.

The Powerstick features a standard USB plug on one end, and a custom multi-port on the other. When you plug the Powerstick into a powered USB port it’s internal Lithium-Polymer battery charges up (and it’s LCD fuel gauge fills up) enabling you to plug a gadget into the other end via an adapter to power it up later.

According to Andrew the Powerstick will nearly double the life of most cell phones, iPods, portable media players, and other gadgets.  If you have ever run out of power at the worst of times the Powerstick sounds like it’s for you - the convenience of disposable charging solutions, but reusable for 500 charges. Check the video for the full scoop.


Bleeding Edge 058: iGo Everywhere 8 Review

When you are on the go, staying juiced up on power is a necessity. The iGo Everywhere 8 charging unit is all about keeping your devices fully charged, anywhere you go. Aside from the handy carrying case, you have a retractable cable, a car charger, and a wall charging unit. You need to purchase an adapter that works with your gadget of choice, and iGo offers a multitude of add-ons to charge just about anything. Plus, they were smart enough to make their blister pack perforated so that it’s simple to open. Check out the video for our review.
