Battery Charger
imageHere's a cool idea for a battery charger. What makes it great is that it's totally portable! Finally a cord-free charger.

Tempting, but I'm saving my money for the DVD rewinder.

I actually got a battery-powered battery charger for Christmas... tho it wasn't as daft as it sounds, being for a phone battery. Still, made me laugh when I saw it eh

Hey, I hope I get a black lightbulb! All the colour of black, in your very own home!

You do not need a DVD rewinder. You can simply remove the DVD from the machine, put it on your finger and spin it backwards. It works for me everytime.

But if I used my finger to rewind DVD's, I wouldn't get a neat little gadget with blinking lights to put on top of the dvd clearly haven't thought this through.

There's a DVD rewinder page on this site somewhere. What a great Christmas gift.

I've seen the battery-operated cellphone chargers. Of course, given the amount of juice packed into one of those little cellphones, you get like ten minutes out of one of them.

Its not the wireless rechargeable battery that is the problem...and the dimwit who uses it.
