Oh, to live—and to travel—with fewer cords. As I pack my own tangle of electrical snakes for a weekend away, I'm dreaming of a more streamlined system. Punkt, a Swiss upstart brand devoted to rethinking consumer electronics, just might have the answer: It's about to come out with a multi-port charger designed by the company's own art director, British wunderkind Jasper Morrison. Photography via Punkt. Above: Morrison's UC 01 USB Desktop Charger is making its debut this month in Milan at two exhibits during Salone del Mobile. The device is Italian-made and aims to reduce workstation clutter. Above: Says Morrison: "More and more devices are now powered via USB, yet most computers and laptops only offer one or two ports. Not to mention the classic hotel scenario: Even if you find the right electric plug for the USB cable, you can only charge a single device. Punkt's new USB multi-port charger provides easy-access charging and is designed for one-handed operation." Above: The charging system is compatible with Apple and Android smartphones and tablets, and Punkt says it works with "most" USB-powered devices, cameras and laptops included. Above: The UC O1 is weighted to stay in place and can charge up to three devices at once. Go to Punkt for more details.
