When I am traveling around the world I always hate having to scrounge around for a adapter that will let me charge my BlackBerry while there. When I went to Israel a few weeks ago I ended up going to Staples and buying a nice Targus one for $25. Yesterday I had somebody send me a link to this Hong Kong wholesaler that sells a world travel adapter WITH a USB port.
I saw these online before but they were all in the $30 range so I did not see the point then. BudgetGadgets.com is selling them for only $12.02 with free shipping. I have never purchased anything from BudgetGadgets before but now I am definitely going to try them out. $12 over Paypal is not that much of a risk for 60%+ off. The downside is that shipping takes 5-12 days to arrive from Hong Kong but I guess you will need to order early if you want it for an upcoming trip.
They also have a really cool looking solar charger for only $18.24. It includes an adapter for mini-USB which should work on every new BlackBerry except for the 8900 and 8220 since they use micro-USB. The 15% efficiency of the solar charger is lower than the high efficiency 33% kind but those are usually much more expensive. It even has a built in 1000mah battery so you could always just use it as a backup charger…
Pretty cool stuff. I will report back when I get mine!
