In an ideal world, there'd be no surge protectors choked with chargers, or knots of cables behind bookshelves. This USB wall plate charger from RCA is an elegant solution to the madness around your wall outlets, and it doesn't require an engineering degree to install.
By elegant, this frustrated geek means that this wall plate will have a neutral effect on the overall aesthetics of your surroundings. While some of the monstrosities we consider installing into the wall to charge our iPhones might be useful, they are ugly as sin. My mother would not leave that exposed on the wall. RCA' solution is cheap ($20), cleanly designed, and simple to install (no getting shocked!). The only thing better would be gadgets you didn't need to charge at all. [RCA via Apartment Therapy]
