The ChargeCard is a super-slim, super-portable iPhone and Android charger currently looking for funding on Kickstarter. Instead of having to carry around a charger that is constantly getting tangled up with everything else in your bag, the ChargeCard folds into the size of a credit card (and only three times thicker) so it’s easy to store in your wallet or purse and carry with you anywhere you go.
The ChargeCard is a USB cable that uses power from USB ports to charge phones. USB ports can be found just about anywhere, which makes this charger so useful — you can pretty much charge your phone anywhere you are.
It works with TVs, laptops, desktops, cable boxes, game consoles, cars, stereos, electric keyboards, drum sets, and more. The ChargeCard is 0.1-inch thick and is made from durable ABS plastic with a foldout USB arm that is made of flexible thermoplastic elastomer and even works with bulky iPhone cases. It’s available in three colours: black, white, or teal on brown.
This is actually pretty ingenious, especially if you usually have a bunch of cords in the same bag. There’s nothing more annoying than trying to plug your phone in before it dies and having to fight with the cords to untangle the charger.
As of now, the designers of ChargeCard have proven the concept, refined the design, and finalized production plans while establishing manufacturing partners. This project now needs pledges to move through to production. Check out more details on the ChargeCard on the Kickstarter website.
Just make sure you keep in mind that there are plenty of rumors that suggest that Apple is about to change the dock connector with the new iPhone. It’s speculation, as all things are in the rumor mill, but there’s a good chance that any docking device or dock connector cable that’s released before then will be obsolete in the next couple of months.
