Doesn’t it suck when you have to buy multiple accessories for the same bloody device? For years, we’ve been left with buying one iPod charger that plugs into a wall outlet and another one that fits in the 12V cigarette lighter jack of an automobile. You would think that someone would come up with a solution that effectively takes care of both possibilities without having to deal with messy adapters.
The Incase 2-in-1 Wall and Car Charger is actually what it sounds like; it’s a single device that will top up the battery of your iPod or iPhone one of two ways. The primary form factor looks like that of a car charger, finding its way into the cigarette jack for juicing purposes. However, you’ll notice that within the body of the charger is a flip-out plug that will fit into a standard wall outlet. Two charging methods shoved into a single accessory.
While it is certainly more efficient than buying two separate accessories, the Incase solution isn’t any cheaper. The $39 asking price is about the same as buying a car charger and a wall charger, but at least it’s more convenient.
