While I can’t speak for others, one of the major reasons why I find tablets far more appealing than laptops is the equipment for recharging. All I need is the USB cord and I’m set. Laptops still have that thick, clunky brick that is forced to tag along with the rest of your gear.
If only someone was smart enough to shrink the traditional laptop power adapter to a size befitting our modern, mobile lifestyles, right?
FINsix Corporation has just announced that they’re unveiling their latest power solution at the 2014 International CES show in Las Vegas, from January 7th to 10th. The FINsix Adapter is the world’s smallest and lightest laptop power adapter.
We’re not talking about baby steps here. The FINsix Adapter is only a quarter the size and a sixth the weight of standard laptop power bricks. You can pretty much stick this thing in your pocket without any worries whatsoever.
The small size makes it friendly to use with other wall plugs and/or power strips, since it only takes up the space of one outlet. There’s no longer a need to shuffle around cords to make everything fit properly.
Not only does the FINsix Adapter deliver 65W of power to laptops, it also features an auxiliary 2.1A USB port for charging your mobile devices. You can leave your smartphone or tablet’s charge plug at home and only keep a good USB cable while you’re on the go.
Why hasn’t this been made sooner? Who knows? Although the FINsix Adapter is being featured at the 2014 CES Innovations Award Showcase, it won’t be available to consumers until sometime after the middle of 2014.
