We’ve gone over some pretty nifty charging accessories on iDB before, but this one might take the cake. And if you happen to own multiple iDevices and a laptop, you might want to pay attention.

Gizmodo passes on the news of a new charging accessory from Energizer known as the iSurge. The travel charging station has a built-in 30-pin dock, a USB port, 3 surge-protected AC outlets, and a nightlight…

If you travel frequently and in the company of several gadgets, chances are you’ve ran into the outlet problem. You know, when multiple devices need to be charged, and there’s not enough plug-ins to go around?

The iSurge solves that problem by turning one AC outlet into three, with the ability to charge a total of 5 devices at the same time. I could see this working wonders during long airport layovers.

As Gizmodo points out, the iSurge doesn’t support international socket standards. So if you find yourself outside of the U.S., you’re going to need an adapter.

This particular accessory is obviously geared towards the traveling gadgeteer, but at $60 bucks it might not be a bad tool for anyone’s laptop bag. The iSurge should be available in October.

What do you think of the iSurge?

    useless would be better if it had a battery.

      To you maybe, I hate generalistic comments like that, i’m sure plenty of people would actually find this useful.

    I bought this from HOme Depot. Works good, but somewhat bulky. http://store.apple.com/us/product/TR488LL/A

    Looks as though it won’t work with a case or bumper on your iPhone. Haven’t checked the site yet but typically that’s where these gadgets always under deliver

    The iPhone charging on a non-moving platform sucks. Being on a cord and having the ability to charge while having freedom of movement is much more convenient.

    Does it accept the 230 volt sockets, found everywhere else on the world?

    • Are people’s attention spams seriously so short that they can’t read a whole article that is that short??
      It clearly states:

      “As Gizmodo points out, the iSurge doesn’t support international socket standards. So if you find yourself outside of the U.S., you’re going to need an adapter.”

      Holy crap. Seriously.

    Nice that it has a light so you can see which way the charger goes in

  • Morgan

    This device would be useless if the things it was mention to charge had life-time batteries.

  • Eduardo Gonzalez

    Ok if you take it to Japan, since the outlets are the same as in the Americas, but the doubt rises on how powerful it will perform, since the electric frequency is 50Hz on the sourthen half and 60Hz in the northern half

    I configured it to my iPhone today and it works great! Thank you.
