About CARD

As a frequent traveller, I want all my gadgets and devices to be in the same system.

Even if some devices are not as slim as credit cards, I still like the minimalistic form, the elegant and ergonomic dimension. There are so many reasons and advantages of a product taking the credit card form; handy, stackable, compact...the list goes on. That's why we develop products in this dimension.

What's CARD Storage( CS1-Pro)

There are two kinds of situations where you'll need to use SIM adaptors.

A: Traveling overseas. The SIM card you bought locally doesn't fit in your phone.

B: Phone malfunctioned. Your original SIM card doesn't fit the spare phone.

SIM adapters are extremely small, which makes it easy to lose and hard to store. 

Regarding Charging Cables

Who doesn't need to charge their phone? The charging port, however, is a science. 

It was right the first time. (source: 9GAG)
It was right the first time. (source: 9GAG)

You ask which side is the right side? Our answer: Both. Both sides are right with our cable in CARD Storage.

CABLE

Another common problem is you need to carry a bundled up mess that is the long cable with you. Especially when the charger is right next to your device. A short, flexible cable makes more sense in direct charging.

THUMB DRIVE

Although there are many ways to transfer data, thumb drive (or flash drive, or as my friends call it -- a USB stick) is still a simple and convenient tool to copy-paste files between devices, especially when the wifi-connection is weak or the files are too big. But the problem is that USB stick is too tiny it's made to be to misplaced.

Based on these problems, we came up with the solution in the form of a thin credit card.

What is CARD Generator? 

The battery capacity for portable chargers is big, however, regardless of how big the battery is, sooner or later it will run out of juice. According to the Murphy's Law, it will happen when you need it the most.

The solution to this situation, is power generation.

The types of power generation includes solar, wind, hydroelectric...et cetra, all of these are limited by the natural environment. 

You need to be able to generate power anywhere, anytime. Be your own power source.

Battery Level Display

Hand cranking to generate power isn't a walk in the park. When electrical power is available to you, there is no need to use a hand crank generator. Only under an urgent situation special situations, will you generate power yourself. 

Therefore, the power you generate just needs to be enough for the current demand. The LED Display of the Generator battery help you to control the time spend on cranking. 

In other words, a large battery capacity of a hand crank generator does not make much difference -- it will only increase the size and bulk of the device. After all, it is impractical to cranking non-stop for an hour or two to fill up a 1500mA battery.

Metal Gears 

There are 2 benefits of our customized metal gears:

1. Strength & Durability

2. Compact Size

Although the costs to design and customize the metal components is much higher, but to design the most ideal hand generator for you, we cannot compromise on quality.

Risks and challenges

Due to the particularly small size of the CARD Generator and CARD Storagel, we had to design and build customised components and figure out ways to integrate everything to optimise the design.

To minimize the defection rate during mass production upon successful Kickstarter campaign will require high skills and immense patience. We have done the EVT and moving on to the DVT and PVT now. Our team has a very strong background for design for manufacturing. We have the parts sourcing, manufacturing flow and testing procedures well defined. If the demand is high, we will be able to scale production and logistics accordingly.
