Portable battery banks may be common these days, but the Juice charger deserves mention for being really pretty.
Made by a Japanese company called Nobil, this product's internal battery can be recharged through the wall socket prongs cleverly hidden in its body. It can then be used to charge any device that draws power from a USB port--just think of it as recharging using your home PC, less the PC. Furthermore, two AAA- or AA-size batteries fit on its sides so those can be recharged on the go, too.
The company describes it as an "ingenious portable charger," which is a bit of a boast. We think it should play on the aesthetics instead as most similar products are really bulky and ugly compared with the Juice.
Nobil's Web site says the product will go on sale in March, though we're not exactly sure where. Contact the company directly for more information on availability.
