Calling all you amazing product designers out there.  Please can you invent UNIVERSAL LEADS for all our electronic products or electronic products that all have the same leads.  Just look at my drawer of LEADS.  They are for our iPods, iPads, various cameras, various phones etc etc.  Everytime I have to recharge something or download images from cameras, I have to search through our drawer of leads before I can begin.  So start designing!

This design could still have chased and repoussed elements.  It also includes piercing which I love.
These designs could range from simple and minimalist to highly decorative.
