Charge Your Phone Using a TV

Most of the TVs you encounter these days actually have USB ports attached to them. You can use these to charge your phone!

Depends on the phone. The amps may not be enough for some phones, and if it does work it wold be a slow charge. I doubt it would do much for tablets.

Anker makes really great charging products. I have their PowerPort 5 with IQ, car charger with two IQ Ports, and a better backup for my lady and they are all amazing. Also bought a few USB cable packs and they are very high quality. Just throwing that in too... why not?!

Sold through Amazon, so you can search there too.

What it can power (in my case) is a ChromeCast. Just use a short USB cable to avoid an cable mess if you use the ChromeCast permanently. One of the things on my to do list is to sort out the incredible mess behind our TV stand. And I have to wall-mount the TV as well. When I installed it many years ago I made the mistake to cut all the speaker cables too short. Neat yes, wise no. Ah well, now I have something to do on those long Winter evenings :D
