The PlayStation-Branded Double AC Adapter, Booyah!

While we'd love the PS3 to charge all of our PlayStation gear, there are odd exceptions, like the PSP. Plus, running the PS3 just to charge peripherals makes about just as much energy sense as turning on your car just to light your cigarette.

So I'm (sadly) extremely tempted by these color-coordinated DS… » 6/01/07 11:45am 6/01/07 11:45am
