Distracted Driving, It's All About the Habit
Mobile phones have made it easy for us to stay connected. Unfortunately, they have also become a major source of driving distractions around the world, posing serious road safety risk for all road users. Whether you are a driver, a passenger, a pedestrian or a cyclist, this affects ALL of us. The statistics from cellphone distraction is alarmingly high:
Over the past decade, people have been suffering from numerous side effects of owning a smartphone. While 24/7 connectivity enables multitasking anywhere, such convenience affects our ability to remain concentrated on important things, including driving. For many of us, our phone habits have turned into an addiction; an addiction that causes us to prioritize cyber activities over life-or-death matters.
SHARK Encourages Safe Driving Habits
SHARK wireless charger is a new breed of universal car charger with a mission to address this addiction and to encourage safe driving habits. Every feature that exists is designed for keeping drivers focused on the road. Through innovative product design and strategic product placement, SHARK reduces distractions and deters the active use of cellphones. SHARK wireless charger encourages drivers to adapt to new habits of interacting with their phones. With repeated usage over time, SHARK subtly corrects drivers' behaviors, making them less aware of their phones and more focused on the road.
Our proposition is a simple one: change one driver at a time. Our team sets out to create a device that does not only excel beyond a normal charger but also carries a responsibility for road safety. From product conceptualization to prototyping, SHARK wireless charger has gone through many design iterations and has been tested against stringent performance measures. The result is a breakthrough product that is unlike any other ordinary chargers in the market.
SHARK Reduces Phone Distractions
SHARK Makes Charging Easy
Our patented pocket holder design provides an easy mechanism for you to charge and to hold your smartphone. The pocket is 3-inch wide and 4-inch deep, enough to hold smartphones of any sizes tightly and securely even in extreme driving condition.
Inside the pocket, there are 3 large charging coils, with total output of 5V/1A, that wirelessly charge any Qi-compatible smartphones. Covering a total surface area of over 7.75 inch sq., the charging interface is large enough to ensure 100% charging accuracy.
SHARK Keeps You Fully Focused on the Road, not the Phone
By simply putting the phone in the SHARK pocket, the phone is secured and starts charging. The whole process takes less than 2 seconds to complete. There is no need to connect a single wire. It's intuitive and requires minimal attention-to-precision, giving you one less thing to worry about while driving.
Built with Automobile-Grade Materials and Made to Last
For enhanced product durability, SHARK wireless charger is built with automobile-grade materials to ensure that the device can withstand extreme temperature changes and is shock-proof and spill-resistant.
To add charging flexibility, SHARK wireless charger comes with two USB ports, each with power output of 5V/2A. This gives you the ability to charge power-hungry devices such as tablets and powerbanks more efficiently.
Easy to Install
Installation is completely intuitive and simple. SHARK uses an adhesive Velcro pad which allows you to easily attach to any surfaces. This Velcro interface is SGS-tested, holds up to 40kg of weight and maintains 100% of its holding power even after 2500 times repeated usage. Simply attach the Velcro pad to your preferred location, plug the device into the 12V socket, and you are ready to go.
For professional installation, savvy users can also connect SHARK directly to their cars' fuse box using the additional power cord from the package.
Works for Any Phone in Any Car
Cars: All cars with a 12V socket (cigarette lighter receptacle) are compatible.
Phones: Any smartphone that are Qi-compatible. This includes almost all the phones made in the last two to three years in the market.
