After touring the W Hollywood yesterday (sorry, no photos allowed just yet) we learned that the hotel will be using Sanctuary Chargers in-room. Awesome! But wait, what are Sanctuary chargers you ask?
Sanctuary is a product from Bluelounge that enables you to charge all of your gadgets in one box, by offering a multitude of charging cords from cellphones to iPods, iPhones, PDAs and other gadgets that use a USB or mini-USB port to charge up. In fact, The Sanctuary is capable of charging over 1,500 different types of gadgets. Here’s how MacWorld describes using the product:
Using The Sanctuary couldn’t get much simpler: remove the tray, plug in its AC adapter, find the correct cord for your device, thread it through one of the notches, replace the tray, and voilà. A green LED light on the power brick will tell you that your devices are receiving power—if it starts to blink or dim, it’s a sign that you may have too many things connected, and that The Sanctuary has had to reduce its power intake.
This is a HUGE relief to see in hotel rooms as it means you won’t have to bug the front desk and then pray that they have your type of charger and you won’t have to run out to the nearest drugstore or electronics shop to buy a new one.
And in case you were wondering, the desks at the W Hollywood (which is still on track to open January 28th) will also have 2009’s Must-Have Amenity, Plug Panels. Now, if only we could get free WiFi here too….
