The addition of USB ports have made power bars even more useful as of late. And Quirky's new Pickup Power promises to now make them almost indispensable with the addition of a large rechargeable battery that can continue to top off your mobile devices when you're away from an outlet.
Designed to sit on your desk so it's always within easy reach, the Pickup Power includes three AC outlets, three USB ports, and a 4,000 mAh battery that's always charging when it's docked. And if the battery should happen to run out of power before you return to home base, a set of fold-out prongs lets you top it off from another outlet as needed. Pricing and availability is still to be announced, but Quirky has approved the Pickup Power for production.
