充電してないガジェットは御法度

Chargepodは6種類のガジェットを同じ電力源から充電出来る.
これは車で使うのに非常に良い製品だが,ガジェット中毒を助長してしまう.
一気に6つのガジェットを充電する機会なんて,どれだけあるだろうか?

Gadget - The Chargepod is a six-way charging device that can power multiple gadgets from the same electronic source.
It's an amazing product for in-car charging, but it provides sobering perspective on our gadget addiction. How decadent are we to require a product that will charge six devices at once?

これらはChargepodの便利さを損なうものではない.
モジュール式の構造になっているので,本体とアダプタは別に売られ,個々に買う事が出来る.

None of this detracts from the marvellous convenience of the Chargepod. Modular in design, the base and a host of sold-separately adapters specific to individual gadgets can be purchased.

個別品の中で,シガレットアダプタは車から電力を供給出来る.
約100ドルで,全てのガジェットが充電でき,機能し,ハッピーになれる.
これは衝撃的だ.

One of these sold-separately items is a cigarette lighter adapter that will power your recharge from within the vehicle.
You can expect to pay roughly $100 for the ultimate bang, which is a small price to pay to keep everything charged, functioning and happy. $40, plus $10 per adapter; visit callpod.com.
