This Is the Best Gift for the Booze Hound in Your Life

It’s the best of both worlds


Why didn’t someone think of this sooner?

If you’re serious about sports, you know that when the game is on, it’s an all-day affair. The proper way to watch a game is to wake up, have a hearty breakfast, and head straight to the bars for a full day of drinking while viewing.

Day drinking is fun, but if you’re doing it the right way, it’s pretty much the only thing you’ll do that day. Even if your phone is fully charged when you leave the house, by the end of the day, it’s completely shot. You could ask the bartender to charge your phone, but the last thing you want to do is ask them to do something that isn’t their job.

Have no fear; a solution to this problem is here: a coaster that charges your phone.

Created by MIT tech startup ChefCharger, this nifty device was being used at select bars and restaurants in New York. Once the company saw a quick, positive response from its users, they designed a portable version called Circle.

Circle is a waterproof, bamboo coaster with a charging cord attached. Once you’ve finished charging your phone, you can recharge the coaster at a charging station. The entire package includes the coaster, chord, and charging station for a total of $100.  Give this gift for the holidays or keep it for yourself — either way, you’ll never be without a phone again.
