Default Charger with multiple usb B heads??? charge 2 devices at once

Please Login to Remove!

I doubt this exists but its worth a shot to ask... most of us have BB's and BT headsets and some headsets like the plantronics recharge with a regular usb b mini like the BB's...

i always carry a travel charger with me b/c i travel a lot and i was curious if anyone makes a charger that has 2 usb ends that split to charge 2 devices.. or a usb b splittler (prob not)....

Other then having to carry 2 charger or a USB Hub is there anything else out there to charge 2 devices at once???

thanks

I carry an I-Go charger that allows me to charge my laptop and as many as 3 other devices such as cell phone, headset, etc. Been carrying it for years.

Here is a link: iGo Welcome - Buy power adapters, batteries and accessories for your cellular, notebook and handheld devices.

carry two usb cables instead of a charger. plug your devices into your laptop while it charges.

lazy. :p

Post a reply then, I'm interested -- it's all about current charge, the BB devices want 500mA of flow as opposed to a RAZR which I think only wants 250mA (or 100mA?); the official BB charger is only 750mA, so if the math is a simple division then each device will get less flow and take longer to charge. An official Moto charger is 500mA, which in theory is enough to charge two devices at full throttle - hence the Y-adaptor.

(this 100mA vs. 500mA is why it seems to take a standard Moto 14 years to charge, as opposed to a BB which takes what, an hour or so?)
