Toasty Charger’s real appeal is in its design, which has obviously been borrowed from Apple. The all-white gadget has a chef’s hat on the front that glows according to the battery charge status.

Its a good idea for god's sake.
Why so many gimps moaing that "kids will put batteries in the real toaster dontcha know. So irresponsible."?
How about the following: Dont keep it in the kitchen by the real toaster. If your kid is so thick, then put the real toaster out of reach, or just let darwinian evolution take its course.
