The CheckTap is a power bar that plugs into your USB port, allowing you to power all those non-computer-related gadgets you want in your office. Not only is it really functional, providing plugs for half a dozen devices, but it saves 70% on electricity. Power bars address the issue of phantom power, or the leaking of energy from plugged in devices, even when turned off, thanks to a switch which powers off the entire bar.

The CheckTap has been acknowledged for its innovation, eco-friendly design, winning the Grand Prix of the 2008 International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva.
