Prong's PocketPlug phone case/charger may strike you as a product you would see on the Home Shopping Network — complete with an overly dramatic video clip starring a woman who just can't deal with her iPhone's cord charger — but it's actually a pretty cool idea. With outlet prongs built into the back of the case, you can easily plug your phone into the wall wherever you are, which seems ideal for kitchen use while cooking. When you aren't charging the phone, all you do is flip the prongs back down to sit flush against the case. Plus, you won't have to carry a cord around with you when you're on the go. The case features a micro USB port if you need to plug your phone into a computer and comes in black or white. It is available for the iPhone 4/4s and 5/5s, and will soon be offered for the Samsung Galaxy S III.
