This, my friends is the charge-card - a charging cable which fits in your wallet or purse!
A cable which takes ‘portability’ to the next level, ensuring that the means of charging your super smart device is always available.
The ChargeCard is designed in the shape of a credit card (although, three times the thickness of a credit card). It is available for
As per the site -
“ChargeCard for Micro USB works on Android, Blackberry, Samsung, Nokia, Kindle, Jambox, Jawbone and all devices that charge with a Micro USB cable.”
“With this form factor, the ChargeCard fits naturally into your wallet, purse or pocket. It's there when you need it, and out of your way when you don't.”
Ingenious I say!
My views -
I got my version in the mail yesterday (yes, I had pledged over at the KS). I had ordered the black micro-USB version. Got is in a good-looking minimalistic package.
The card is made mostly of rubber and I have successfully been able to charge and sync my smartphone, MP3 player, and so on. The thickness is a bit more like my office access card. So ‘3 times the credit card size’ is quite true.
The USB plug is enclosed in a flexible rubber, allowing you to twist or bend it in order to plug it in any USB port.
If you own a smartphone or even a device which uses a micro-USB port and can be charged via the standard USB, you will appreciate this nifty gadget. This is what every self-proclaimed GEEK should have in his or her wallet/purse.
My friends, you are but incomplete without it!
