As we've noted more times than we care to remember, there are a countless number of useless gadgets that seem to exist only because they use a computer's USB port for a power source. Maybe that's one of the reasons behind Green-House's development of the "Eneplug."

This little device, which Technabob accurately describes as resembling "the decapitated end of a standard 110v AC plug," is a USB charger that skips the middleman and plugs directly into a wall outlet. It's available only in Japan at present, perhaps because that's where there's the most pressing need for such gadgets as MP3 players that give facials.
