The Couchlet makes being lazy easier than ever before


When we clock out from work for the day, we are often mentally and physically exhausted. If it’s a particularly bad day, we hardly want to move. While lounging around the house is a perfectly valid past time, we don’t want to be forced to move from our spot once we’re settled. If your phone or tablet are your main sources of entertainment while you’re being a potato on the couch, you’ll need a power source nearby.

If your nearest wall plug is just a little too far away, you will either want a USB extension cable, or something like the Couchlet. This is a folding arm which wedges under your mattress or couch pillows, and will provide you with two USB outlets. This way you don’t need to lean over the side of your bed or the armrest to use your phone while it’s still plugged in and about to die.

This comes with a six foot cable that will fit into your current wall charger. Of course, it can be detached to be used on its own, but at that point you may as well just get a USB cable that’s long. This compact accessory will cost you $16, but there’s a good chance something like this would serve you better in the long run. Of course, this would be nice if you only have a short cable.
