Product Review: Chargepod by Callpod

-------------------------------------

If you’re like most families, you own several cell phones, a digital camera, a gaming system, a music player and other devices which need to be plugged in when their batteries run low. Cords and plugs are everywhere, making it difficult to keep track of what gets plugged in where. Worse, when you share a plug, you may find yourself waiting for one cell phone to recharge before being able to hook up your own.

That “problem” has an easy solution — develop a device that can centrally recharge multiple units at once. In the case of the Chargepod by Callpod, you can recharge as many as six devices at the same time. I was given a sample Callpod to use for myself; this article serves as my unbiased and unsponsored review of the product.

What is it: Chargepod is a lightweight device with the ability to recharge a variety of devices at one time. All you need is the right adapter (supplied) to connect to the central charging port and have that unit connected to a single wall outlet.

What you get: Each kits contains the Chargepod, six common adapters and the option to purchase a kit valued at $9.95 which includes additional adapters. You may not need the supplemental kit if the Charepod Bundle Pack contains everything you must have.

How it works: Simply plug the Charepod into any outlet and the unit comes to life. You know it is working when the main connection’s bright yellowish-green light activates. Additional blue lights will also light up for every adapter connected. Connect each device you need to have recharged and it should begin to show signs of recharging immediately.

Does it work: Yes, the Chargepod works as promised. In my case, I only had the need to recharge two items at once, a cell phone and an iPod. We have other devices, but they ran out of power and different times. In any case, everything when connected everything recharged though my wife says that her iPod did not fully recharge. I believe that the problem was with the adapter, not the Chargepod itself.

Where can I get one: Visit callpod.com to order your Chargepod which is priced from $49.95. You can purchase accessories including an a car charger, AC/DC power pack, extension pack and related apparel. Check what you’re getting first to avoid ordering something you don’t need.

Bottomline: Personally, I don’t need the Chargepod, but I can think of people who would benefit from such a device. I haven’t found another product like it on the market and have seen it priced for far less at Amazon.com. If you own an iPod or an iPad, make sure that this adapter is included with your order.
