The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas isn't all about the high-end devices that get announced here. Sure, they get all the time and attention, but we can't forget about the accessories, either. XtremeMac has officially unveiled a series of new USB chargers that may look like any other USB charger out there, but they have a few extra features in store.
The first of the bunch is the universal dual USB charger. It provides 10 watts of power to both USB ports, which means you'll have space enough to charge two of your devices at once, in one plug. The universal name keeps going, with XtremeMac also unveiling the universal car USB charger. No surprises here, unfortunately.
And finally, there's the universal USB battery pack and charger. It's meant to charge batteries while it's not plugged into the wall, and then provide power to your devices when it's connected to a wall outlet. Prices start at $14.99 for the dual USB charger, $24.99 for the universal USB car charger, and $59.99 for the battery pack/charger combination.
