If you have trouble sleeping, one of the best things that you can do to help yourself is to place your smartphone or any smart device as far away from you as possible. Of course this is easier said than done but believe me, it makes a difference. But if you would like to really rest and recharge, you know you have to also let your phone rest and recharge, preferably away from you. There are a lot of products out there that would like to help both you and your device power up.

Share Power is a concept for a phone charger that can also be your night light until you fall asleep (well, if you fall asleep easily). At first it looks like a small paper shredder or a UV light sterilizer or a small storage device. But it’s actually a device to charge your smartphone while you’re sleeping. It’s meant to be placed at your bedroom door or anywhere away from you and will also serve as a night light so you can sleep well while your phone recharges.
There is a slot in the middle of the device where you can place your smartphone for charging. Since most mobile phones now are thin enough, it should fit a typical iPhone or Android device, at least in concept. Once you place your phone there, Share Power will also light up for 15 minutes while it’s charging. If you don’t fall asleep by then, you’ll have to make do with the dark. Hopefully, there’s a way to program how long the light will stay on for those of us who might need a little more illumination more than 15 minutes.
They don’t really explain what functions the other parts of the device will bring. There’s a speaker-like grill in the bottom part so we don’t know if there’s also another purpose for the device aside from charging and lighting. But if that’s just what you’re looking for, it should be enough.
