A portable wireless charger that can be used anywhere and anytime; and that too without an electricity connection to charge your iPhones, iPods, Kindle, BlackBerry or practically anything that has USB port connectivity and compatibility. Yes, we are talking about Duracell’s myGrid USB charger, which is expected to be a handy tool for gizmo-loving folks. It is a simple battery pack that makes for a compact, portable and travel-friendly device useful for everybody who uses a device with a USB port in them.

Once it is charged, it can be used to power anything that connects through a USB – like smartphones will get a charge that lasts 4 hours, MP3 players get a 30 hour power recharge, and the myGrid USB charger gives Kindle power to last up for a 100 reading hours and 10 hours of charge on Bluetooth headsets.

You might ask how the USB charger gets its own charge. Well it has been designed to be compatible with the myGrid Charging Mat that was launched last year. Simply lay the battery pack on the charging mat  and allow it to reach full charge, once it is fully charged, it can be used to power almost all the handheld devices that can be connected through a USB port.

The device is set to be released soon and will come with a price tag of $34.99. The only pre-requisite to fulfill before buying the myGrid USB charger is to procure the myGrid Charging Mat as well which comes at a price of $64.99 on Amazon.com.
