surprised that a lot more companies haven't jumped on this idea before.
In reality I'm not a road warrior. Anyone who has to do sales in a large
terriroty will like the idea of being able to leave the laptop plugged
into the cigarette lighter while the phone charges off the USB of the
laptop. Seems like a very trivial matter but there are still quite a few
cars that are only equipped with one cigarette lighter. Another
plus for these units is that by carrying a couple of batteries for the
mobile computer you have more than enough juice to do your work and charge
your phone if the need arises. I even made calls with my phone plugged
into the computer for juice.
may feel a little neglected up to this point. I liked the idea of being
able to charge a dead PDA at the office. PDA users get very dependent
on their machines for keeping track of a lot of tasks so it makes a lot
of sense to charge your PDA from a laptop or even from the office computer.
Considering the amount of time a PDA can spend close to a computer that
it is synced to it only makes sense that the computer reciprocate the
arrangement with a little charge. Don't you think so? You can pick up
one of these chargers at Staple's or Fry's and the their were a few more
online retailers listed at Jetta Tech's site.
