An increasing number of us have more than one iDevice, which makes the US$34.99 Kensington Dual USB Wall Charger ( useful.

It lets you simultaneously charge two iPad, iPhone, or iPod devices from a single wall outlet. It also includes a detachable USB sync cable that you can use to sync your devices from your computer.

The Kensington Dual USB Wall Charger is compact (4.25 x 6 x 2.50 inches, 0.50 pounds) with a low-profile design that takes up just one wall outlet. This makes it convenient for taking on business trips or vacations.

Other companies such as Belkin ( and iGo ( also make dual USB wall chargers, but all the products seem to have similar list prices, so you can take your choice. But the Kensington product works well, is compact and is reasonably priced.
