Mister Jalopy says: "Mike Sandman, the self-professed Chicago Telecom Expert, sells phone line powered gadgets that operate off the free, unmetered 48 VDC that is piped into every modular jack. The $69.95 Telco Powered Calculator seems pricey in comparison to a 99 Cent Store solar calculator, but consider the geek cred of having a phone line powered, glow-in-the-dark vibrator. Cheaper than an Ipod Shuffle!"

There's a lot of stress when the power is out!
Use our soothing Vibrator to relax your muscles after dealing with this serious problem...
Use it as long as you need to... it's powered by the phone company!
