I commend Delta for providing us standard and USB power power ports just about everywhere (some better than others fyi), from gate area to Sky Clubs to on-board they are plentiful. But when I at last get to where I am going the hotel may or may not offer what I really need. Plus, many times, they spread out the USB power ports one or two here and there all over the room. I don’t know about you but I have nightmares about leaving something plugged in and leaving it behind in the room. 🙁
In the past I have used the above combo for my laptop and then the next one for all my USB stuff. I need this as I now have a USB port powered Mouse, Bluetooth headphones (w/ Bluetooth transmitter dongle), as well as my trusty 20k battery brick. All 4 of these device I need to charge each night before travel the next day. I need something simpler and with a LONG and yet compact cord.
Time for this “UPWADE” to be my new solution and replace my old surge protector with only 2 USB ports to one that has 4 and be able to have everything conveniently plugged in to one spot and all of it the have power protection – Nice.
With 2 standard power ports I can keep my laptop going as well as one more spot for my 26k mega laptop battery brick (that will recharge my laptop from dead once).
I think I have found the perfect setup and I am loving all of the above (well, other than my old surge strip). Now my only problem is making sure I make the time to plug everything in before I go to bed! 🙂
So does my collection of power hungry travel toys resemble yours? Do you have another perfect solution you have found? – René
