The first words that popped into my mind when I saw the Moixa USBCELL batteries were “Frigin’ sweet” spoken exactly like Peter Griffin of Family Guy fame. C’mon, it doesn’t get much cooler than AA NimH batteries that come with built-in plugs for re-juicing via your computer’s USB port. Moixa is also releasing 9V, AAA, Mobile phone and other device batteries with various charging ports, the possibilities are endless.
Naturally, if you’re on vacation and aren’t packing around the laptop (you can’t really get it onto flights anyways thanks to the whole Sony battery fiasco), you can still recharge these batteries the usual way using a regular AC adapter thing. But really, there’s no need to bring a separate charger when any old USB port will do. They’re sold in pairs for about US$24.
