    We just got tired of sharing and losing the original charger.... Somehow we wound up buying this thing instead of an OEM replacement!!! #_#

    A charge takes a bit longer than using the wall adapter, but it has a smaller carbon footprint.

    It's cool that it only takes 2 seconds but $5 seems a little steep!

    Whatever you bring, atomic or something more alien, it may charge a cell phone but not a wife when she is pissed off!!!

    There is a little flaw! The NRC, considers the phone as a hot zone.

    Good. Now, shrink it down a bit and we'll have a market for those trousers with the lead-lined pockets.

  57. Eric M
    August 31, 2013 at 2:13 am

    The upside is it will charge your phone in 30 seconds

    The downside is it costs 14 million dollars and you have to get zoning permits from the city, county and state and have an EPA inspection every 3 months.

    Seems that my smartphone can't be fooled to charge faster by just placing a sign and tri-foil symbol.

  60. Gde S
    August 31, 2013 at 12:20 am

    I built it so I could recharge faster, but now I can't disconnect it and keeps saying something about "Skynet"

  61. dragonmouth
    August 31, 2013 at 12:03 am

    The side benefit of this charger is that I can recharge my Tesla Roadster in 2 minutes.

    When the market annalists said they wanted a Steam-Punk charger I don't think this is what they meant.
