He was always able to pull a quick one and get rid of the army of bad people following him around in seconds! Part of his cool escapes was his brilliant mind (read the director’s brilliant mind) and part of it were various cool gadgets he had on him.

PoweriSite Or How To Charge Your Smartphone With Your Power Tools
Sometimes, the best solutions are hacks of tools, stuff and gear your already own!

While you could buy a dedicated external battery to power your gear while on the go (something like the PowerFlask and 14,000mAh PowerPak Ultra) why not take advantage of the one sitting in your tool box? Most of us already own one or more power tools that come with powerful rechargeable batteries which can be used to charge smartphones and tablets when needed. Don’t get me wrong, I am not suggesting you replace that sleek USB charging unit in your business case, I am just saying that, with a little hack, you can you benefit of the extended juice of the power tools you already own.

Enter the PoweriSite – for a reasonable $17.95 you get a dual USB adapter which hooks to high capacity Dewalt (14-18volt) batteries and charges any USB gadget. PoweriSite uses the available voltage in your power tool battery. For example – a high capacity tool battery can charge your iPhone 4 up to 8 times with up to 3.1 amps of power.

While this solution is a bit bulky for day-to-day usage, given the high capacity of the power tools batteries, I see a lot of potential for outdoors usage such as camping, hiking as well as phone charging in remote areas with no regular access to electrical power.

PoweriSite comes after a successful funding campaign on Kickstarter and is available for pre-order with delivery scheduled for March 2014.
