Everyone’s all about conservation these days. You probably know by now that it’s best to turn that tap off when you’re not using it– but we don’t mean water; instead, we’re talking about power. The Power Tap is a unique charger that looks and works like a typical tap. Turn the handle to let electricity flow, and turn it back to its original position to turn the power off. A USB cable is meant to be plugged into the tap’s “spout.”
Its makers’ goal was to get more people to be conscientious of usage and save energy, although what’ll get people’s attention first is the novelty of the Power Tap’s design. When it’s in the “off” position, the Tap uses 85% less power than when it’s on (that 15% goes on to power the tap’s indicator light.)
It’s available online for $27.50.
