Samsung has created a cable that charges three devices at the same time...

Because why not?

SINCE THE BATTERY life of our devices aren’t the best, we’re still waiting on longer battery lives, we’re dependent upon charging them regularly.

So Samsung has decided the solution to those with multiple devices is to create a cable that can charge three devices simultaneously

The Multi-Charging Wall Charger, which is only available for pre-order in the US, works with any device that uses a micro-USB port. The obvious catch is that if you’re charging three devices at the same time, it’s going to take much longer than one.

Although if you’re charging your phone and some smaller devices like a smartwatch or Bluetooth device, then it will be a little bit faster. The same applies to only charging two devices at the same time, the cable is able to split up the charge evenly so there’s no power lost.

The cable is designed for overnight charging rather than quick moments and if you use numerous gadgets daily, it might be a useful alternative.

Although it does cost $40 (€30) so if it makes its way over here and you’re considering getting one, just make sure you get your money’s worth.
