LIGHTORS: The world's first MONSTER Batteries!

$69,170

Lightors are not your standard single use batteries.

Lightors are smart rechargeable batteries that can be used over 500 times.

Step futher for your convience and clean environment.

We've created an innovative product, regarding social issue that AA or AAA battery based products come out to the market consequently. 
Convience of USB chargeable technology finally settled down to tiny battery by our innovative product 'LIGHTORS'. 
LIGHTORS battery is used for up to 500times with micro 5-pin cable port which is nomarlly used for charging smart phone(android).


The size of LIGHTORS battery is exactly same with AA and AAA battery so that you can use them any of products that are AA or AAA battery based.

Once the batteries run out of charge, you can simply plug them into any existing micro 5-pin USB cable and recharge them.

Unlike other rechargeable batteries out there, you don’t need a separate charger to house the batteries while charging.
All you need to do is plug a micro-USB cable into the internal port in the batteries and it will begin recharging instantly.
Not only can you recharge the batteries more than 500 times, it’ll reduce the cost you spend on batteries by that much as well as reduce the amount of waste that’s created from throwing out traditional batteries as well.

Batteries are something that’s needed for use in small devices whether it be in the home or office. Disposing of standard batteries is an increasing problem because although their uses are various and many, disposing of them is not healthy to the environment. Lightors resolves these issues from a different perspective in providing an easy-to-use alternative. Now, not all batteries are created equal.

Lightors are extremely convenient batteries for use whenever and wherever.

Unlike other rechargeable batteries, you don’t need an additional charger to house the batteries while charging. Micro-USB cables are the standard when it comes to charging most smart devices today, which makes it much more convenient than having to keep track of an external charging cradle.

Lightors could help potentially reduce battery waste from 10 billion to
20 million annually
!

Detox the earth, Innovative battery 'LIGHTORS'

The Environmental News Network reports that annual global consumption of batteries is at a staggering 10 billion (the US makes up 3 million alone).
Of the total number of batteries consumed, approximately only 2% (200,000) get properly disposed of for recycling while the remaining 9.8 billion are simply thrown out thus contaminating the environment further.
Lightors is an eco-friendly and innovative product that protects the planet by reducing discarded battery waste by 1/500 (from 10 billion to 20 million). Regularly disposed batteries can bring tremendous harm to the environment. 

One Lightor battery provides the same value as 500 standard single use batteries.

Extremely cost-effective and affordable, Lightors offers users a way to reduce costs in battery spending (+$48 Billion Industry). If purchasing one batter was $1, you would be saving $499 inadditional battery spending. This is not only incredible cheaper, but a substantial reduction in resources used to make, store, dispose of extra batteries.

Throwing away batteries after a single use is probably the most convenient, but isn’t there way to solve major problems in the world that affect people and our earth? Isn’t there a way overcome the disadvantages of using a traditional battery cradle forrecharging?  Our product was developed to address this problem.
However, there were issues with producing AAA batteries due to size and fitting in the PCB and mechanisms in a much smaller form factor.  
Finally, we were able to come up with a working model recently in December 2014 to offer two different sizes of Lightors batteries.

Lightors is a young company that contributes to the development and distribution of advanced eco-friendly products adding innovative new products to your daily life tomake a difference in the world. The origin of our brand name means “people that make light”.

Light makes for a better society, meaning brightening and making positive changes, and it’s important to focus on creating valuable work that brings light to this world.

We want to extend our apologies once again at the mishap we had yesterday revolving our prematurely posted update. Again, the update was posted without receiving proper approval, which has caused some negative feedback and loss of faith from some of our backers.  

Although a lightning port stretch goal is something we would love to include, at this time we cannot verify its feasibility and thus have decided to create new stretch goals in its place.  

Our first stretch goal will be for the same amount of $150,000. This stretch goal is to double the number of uses for Lightors. Currently, we can guarantee that Lightors can be used at least 500 times. This stretch goal will allow the development and guarantee of at least 1,000 uses.  

The second stretch goal is for amp increase. This stretch goal will be for $200,000 and will guarantee a 10% increase in mAH for both types. The AA batteries will increase from 1500mAH to 1650mAH while the AAA batteries will increase from 600mAH to 660mAH.  

Again, we want to extend our apologies for our previous error and hope it will not deter current and future Backers from supporting our campaign.  

Posted above is our current domestic patent and our international patent is currently pending. (PCT/KR2014/011245) Just to clear the air, Lightors is a unique product that does not exist anywhere else in the world and we stand by our product.

As a recognized Hi-Seoul Brand company, Lightors has received recognition for being a promising and representative small-medium enterprise by the city of Seoul. 

Only those companies that offer globally competitive innovative technological products are able  to receive this special recognition in hopes of expanding Korea's domestic export enterprise.

Risks and challenges

Lightors is a relatively young manufacturing and distribution company of eco-friendly innovative products that add high value to our daily lives and make a difference in the world.
With our flagship product, we’re entering the smart accessory market to match other smartphone peripherals.

Lightors = “Light”+ “ors”

The origin of our name means “people that create light”.
Light provides for a better society and brightening peoples’ lives with positive changes.
Always focus on creating something positive and bringing light to the rest of the world.

From a technical point of view, the main challenges we faced when creating Lightors were “how will we offer USB charging while minimizing circuit discharge”, “how can we maximize Ni-MH capacity”, and “how will we minimize power loss in the circuit configuration”. From a mechanical standpoint, we were worried whether we would be able to construct a durable micro-USB port for charging.

However, with our experienced developers having years of experience in battery/electronics, we were able to overcome 90% of the inherent risks and finished pilot testing without any issues. If we’re able to successfully fund our project, we promise that we will deliver all products in less than 5 months.
