Have you ever run out of electrical outlets? Let's say you need to charge your phone but all the electrical outlets are occupied. I know when I'm in my kitchen and need to charge my phone, I usually have to sacrifice an appliance or two to make room for my phone and its bulky adapter. Those days are gone as soon as I get my hands on this awesome new outlet cover on Kickstarter.
I know what you're thinking: "Of all the things you could get excited over, Kim, an outlet cover?" I get it. Those little plastic panels surrounding every electrical socket in your home aren't something most people would usually get very excited about. But just wait till you see this awesome invention.
The SnapPower Charger is a very simple idea. It's a USB charger built directly into an electrical cover plate. With this ingenious charger, you can save an outlet for something else. Check it out in the photo below:
Even better, the SnapPower charger is easily installed. All you need is a simple screwdriver. In fact, a video on the Kickstarter page illustrates how easy it is, installing the charger in just 13 seconds.
I'm not the only one who thinks this is such a great idea. The SnapPower charger has well exceeded its funding goal of $35,000. So far, the project has nearly 9,000 backers and has raised $371,000 with 43 days still to go.
