Short info

Charge six devices at once with Callpod.

Detailed information

Reminiscent of the Power Squid (Episode 24), which is a power adapter and surge protector, the Chargepod is a power charger for your small portable devices, such as iPod, cellphones and mp3 players.  Less than 3" in diameter and 1" thick, it charges up to 6 devices with the appropriate adapter/tip.


Dick tells the story about Duracell's project to produce a standardised rechargeable battery for all mobile devices, which got nowhere because manufacturers wanted to sell their own proprietary batteries.  Leo gripes about Apple's recent patent application for their new MagSafe Charger.

Soccer Ball Ice-Cream Maker

Andrew Darlow, Editor of Imaging Buffet, heard about Leo's Cuisinart Ice-Cream Maker (Episode 347) and suggested the soccer ball ice-cream maker from Play & Freeze.  Put the ingredients into the ball and just roll it.  No need to crank or shake.  Read the instructions here.  Available at Amazon.

Stirring Mug

The maker of the Stirring Mug (Episode 354) is very pleased with Dick's plug on DGW.
