The SnapPower Charger is a clever innovation that adds a USB charging port to regular wall outlets.

Currently up for funding on Kickstarter, the product is essentially a wall outlet cover plate that has an additional port for USB connectivity that doesn't take up one of the main outlets. At this moment, the SnapPower Charger has raised almost 13 times its initial goal of $35,000 with 42 days yet to go in the campaign.

The ingenious design is intuitive, useful and sure to explode onto the mainstream market very soon, especially given that each household could use at least two or three. Given the propensity to forget components of constantly evolving gadget chargers, the lessened need to find USB-wall connectors will be a welcome delight for many.
