Energizer makes gaming play with Power and Play Charging Systems

Performance Design Products, which is simply known as PDP, recently licensed the Energizer brand to slap on its line of Power and Play Charging systems for the Sony PS3, Microsoft Xbox 360, and Nintendo Wii. Indeed, the Energizer brand should give these chargers some added visibility in the marketplace, so we thought we'd give them a whirl.

While the PS3 and XBox 360 chargers look very similar, the PS3 version has some extra USB ports that allow you to charge up to four PS3 wireless controllers at one time. And the Wii Charger is a whole different beast.

Toshiba projector tells you what to do

Personally, I like strong and silent types when it comes to gadgets, but if you're attracted to chatty electronics, you might want to listen up. Toshiba has introduced what is says is the first projector with voice guidance.

The TLP-X200U wireless projector delivers audible messages about the system, including the on/off status, lamp life, air filter checks, and cooling fan status. This is aimed at making the product easy to use and helping users take good care of their machines so they can (hopefully) avoid maintenance updates.

The projector features wireless network capabilities, closed captioning, 3LCD technology, and a multiscreen function that lets users network up to four TLP-X200U projectors to create one large image or present up to two different screen images at once from one computer source. It boasts brightness of 3,000 ANSI lumens and can project at a distance up to almost 12m. It has video ports for 15-pin VGA, HDMI, and S-video.

It's a compact product, weighing 1.9kg and measuring less than 76mm high. It comes with its own carrying case and can be stowed in a carry-on bag or airline overhead bin, where it hopefully will not be talking away while you're trying to take a nap.

The suggested retail price is US$1,739.

Eco Button puts your computer to zzz...

This sounds like something you can already do by clicking the Start button on your Windows desktop and selecting the Standby or Hibernate options. But if you want to impress your Luddite pals, the Eco Button's the way to go. The thingamajig plugs into an available USB port on your PC. Jab the green glowing center and it automatically sends your computer into minimal power mode. Do it again and it brings the PC back on. You can even configure a password lock so your pesky neighbors won't "accidentally" access your computer.

What's more, this can help you save some money. According to online retailer Firebox, a normal user can save up to US$80 a year. That's about US$56 after you factor in the price of the device which costs US$24. Better yet, the Eco Button software has a tracker to help you keep watch on how much energy you've saved while AFK. That's away from keyboard, you noob.
