Mega Tiny Corp announces the launch of PowerBulb, the world's first LED lightbulb that integrates USB charging anywhere in the home, office or hotel. With PowerBulb, gone are the days of petty anger, trivial annoyance and senseless frustration by not having easy access to a charging source. PowerBulb harnesses the power of the lightbulb to charge your mobile devices. Simply place PowerBulb into a lamp, turn on the lamp, attach a USB charging cable, and then connect the devices you are looking to charge!

We've all been there. Smartphone-sofa-surfing, laying-in-bed-browsing or hotel-room-boredom-busting when your battery is running low and there simply isn't a charging socket within arm's reach. The modern room simply isn't set up to solve the socket wars we all encounter on a daily basis in search for mobile power.
This usually results in three irritating scenarios:
1. Breaking our backs to access hidden wall sockets behind furniture
2. Spaghetti tangle of cables, wires and power socket extenders at the bedside
3. Borrowing, losing or fighting over mobile chargers all over your house

All bring us dark moments, but PowerBulb will show you the light in these situations. When you don't want the light on, the PowerBulb's simple on/off button means both devices continue to charge with the light off. All at just $29 for early birds!
Jeff Wilcox, Head of Product Development, said: "We saw an obvious problem that almost everyone faces - how to get easily accessible charging ports anywhere in our home without a big mess of cables and the hassle of locating an outlet that's never in a convenient place. Our bright idea was tapping into the light bulb!
Fast forward a few months and all four of the Mega Tiny founders would never go back to bedside charging any other way! We're excited to be bringing the PowerBulb to Kickstarter. It's a great place for us to engage with our fantastic community again, and we can't wait to hear what backers have to say!"
Smart, eh? Well, PowerBulb is actually MegaSmart. Using its MegaSmart™ charging technology, it intuitively sends more power to the device with a lower charge. Once charged evenly, both devices will receive the same amount of power as would be received from a wall charger.
