Do your chargers ever go missing?

Mine do! 

It is very frustrating when your chargers are moved from where they are supposed to be. Some like to keep a charger in the kitchen, living room or bedroom. However, they end up 'borrowed' and never seem to return.


The disappearing charger is the problem we set out to solve.

How it works

The Charger Safe is an innovative patent-pending outlet that protects your chargers from being easily moved. The USB ports are recessed behind the outlet faceplate thus securing the chargers where you want them.

The Charger Safe is an outlet requiring installation (see FAQ). Once installed, simply remove the faceplate to plug in your charger(s), feed the male end through the narrow hole and return the faceplate. 

The chargers are then secured and can't be moved (unless of course someone unscrews the faceplate but seriously, that's just stealing - not borrowing!).

Where The Charger Safe will be helpful

 In a home filled with kids or roommates, chargers are commonly borrowed and often  not returned. Perhaps you have a place in the kitchen that you always expect to be able to charge your phone and are frustrated when that charger goes missing. The Charger Safe is the perfect outlet to help those chargers stay where they are supposed to be. If you have more than one place consider the Bundle Pack so you can have one for the kitchen, bedroom and your office.

For your restaurant or business?

Speaking of offices, our first customer is a restaurant that provides tablets for their waitstaff to take orders. It is a constant battle to keep chargers where they need them! The Charger Safe gives the employees reliable access to chargers and gives management one less thing to worry about.

Or perhaps you would like to provide a charge for your customers in a waiting room? If the idea of losing a charger each day is too much to bear, The Charger Safe is for you. You will be able to provide your patrons with additional customer service at a low cost.

Who knows, maybe airports will help everyone out by installing The Charger Safe everywhere!

Rental home, beach or lake house, even the cabin

Do you have an Airbnb or VRBO property or family vacation home? Provide peace of mind to your guests and family members by having chargers throughout the home while providing you peace of mind knowing you won't have to replace the chargers because your guests mistakenly took the chargers you provided.

What can you charge?

The Charger Safe provides two 2.4 amp high speed USB ports. These universal ports accommodate any USB charging cable. The Charger Safe was designed to accommodate standard charging cables for iPhone and Android devices plus a wide range of additional chargers. Keep in mind, however, that the male end of the charger must feed through the narrow hole on the faceplate so in rare cases, the cable end may be too large to fit through the hole.  

What have we done and what's left to do?

We have engineered The Charger Safe to be as small as possible in order to fit nearly all existing electrical outlet boxes. The small design allows any existing or new construction outlet to become a secured charging station. 

In July, we produced our initial 3D printed prototypes for testing and have loved our results. Now, however, comes the expensive part. With a successful Kickstarter campaign, we will have the funds to have our specialty production molds constructed (approximately $20,000), submit for a UL Certification ($8,000) and fulfill our initial minimum order quantity.

The timing of constructing the molds is approximately four weeks. At the same time we order molds, we will submit for our UL Certification (UL is an independent organization that tests electrical components to ensure they meet specific safety requirements). We anticipate this to take four weeks but no more than six weeks.

Once our molds are constructed and certification is approved, we will begin manufacturing The Charger Safe. We have partnered with one of the leading manufacturers of USB outlets. Their years of experience and production capabilities give us absolute confidence in the overall quality, performance and safety of The Charger Safe. The units will take approximately four weeks to produce and deliver to our warehouse.

So while it is conceivable we can get The Charger Safe to you prior to the holidays, we are planning for late December/early January deliveries. 

So what are you waiting for??

Risks and challenges

Fortunately, there have been millions of USB outlets produced and sold. This means the supply chain for the raw materials is mature and dependable for our manufacturer. That said, there are always timing risks when dealing with so many intricate parts which could delay our delivery date. The other timing risk is obtaining our UL Certification. This process normally takes 4-6 weeks but if revisions are requested this timing can expand.
