I am the engineering type so I tend to have a lot of electronics around my desk at home. It’s not really a problem but I’m getting swamped with power bricks for low power devices. Each somewhere between 3 and 24 Volts DC (a couple AC, maybe, I haven’t checked). I have a few USB hubs, network switch, speakers, mouse charger, cell phone charger, iRiver charger, PDA charger… you get the picture. I actually had to talk myself out of getting an external hard drive because I can’t emotionally handle yet another power brick under my desk. I can find a place to plug it in but this seems simply retarded to have that many transformers (and most of them are not solid state silicon but are actual step-down transformers) under my desk.
Is there a better solution? Is there a commercial 48VDC rail I could install with tiny convinient in-the-plug voltage regulators powering all this? Something? Anything? Help me the power bricks are driving me insane!
