At its suggested retail price of $25, we'd find it hard to understand why Kensington's Absolute Power 2.1 with PowerWhiz exists -- it's merely a straightforward, boxy 2.1-Amp power adapter with folding blades, shipped without a USB cable or any other accessories. For just four dollars more, one can pick up Apple's 10W USB Power Adapter with an six foot extension cable and a Dock Connector to USB Cable. However, Kensington's accessory street prices are typically much lower than its retail prices, while Apple's stay the same. If you like the design, and can find this cheap, it might be worth considering.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
