There are those gadgets that catch your eye and inspire Ooohs, Aaahs, and shortness of breath (4K TVs, I’m talking to you). And then there are those gadgets that, without fanfare, become absolutely invaluable, and you wonder how you ever got along without them.
The Kii from BlueLounge is both: When I saw it at CES in January, it stole my heart: Key-shaped, with a USB port at one end and an iDevice charger at the other (it comes in 30-pin and lightning varieties, so there’s one for any iPad, iPod or iPhone you’ve got). I put it on my keychain last month, and I can’t tell you how many times it’s rescued me since— anytime I need to charge or sync my phone, I can do it without having to remember to bring along a cable or charger brick. Inspires a little Oooh and Aaah every time.
