Let's be blunt: iLuv's portable USB adapters aren't the first we've seen, and nor are they the handsomest, but they are at least relatively cheap. The iLuv iAD116 - which has one USB port - and the iLuv iAD117 - which has three - each have folding mains pins and come in at under $20 each.
Each adapter can accept voltages from 100 to 240V at 50 or 60Hz, making them good for traveling. Meanwhile each of the USB ports they sport outputs 5V 500mAh which should suit most PMPs, digital cameras and cellphones.
The iLuv iAD117 is priced at $19.99, while the iLuv iAD116 comes in at $14.99, and both will begin shipping in September. That's cheaper than the BeamBox MiLi, though of course it lacks that adapter's in-car plug and interchangeable plug sections.
