Don't you hate it when your smartphone runs out of battery?
We get it – There are only a few things more frustrating than watching your smartphone battery life drain away in the middle of the day when you left home with a full charge that very morning. It gets worse when you have had an unexpected delay, or haven't been able to fully charge your phone, and you need to make a few calls, send that important work email or use your GPS and maps function to find your way home.
Even with the longest smartphone battery life, there will come a time when you will need that extra boost of battery life to keep you connected.
Wouldn't it be Awesome if you didn't ever have to worry about your smartphone running out of battery?
Wouldn't it be nice not having to worry about lugging that annoying wall charger and usb cable around, or remembering to pack that chunky power bank with you everywhere you go?
Wouldn't it be nice not to have to stop at coffee shops or next to a power socket just to charge your phone?
Wouldn't it be nice to be able to get through an entire day without having to carry all that "equipment" around?

We first came up with the idea for KEYCHARGE when we couldn't find a backup charger for our smartphones that was compact, smart, simple, and elegant enough for everyday use. Everything that was on the market was too large to conveniently take with you everywhere.
We wanted to create something that you wouldn't have to worry about forgetting, a true back-up juice pack that you would always be able to have on you all the time. This was when we first started sketching a design for KEYCHARGE and also started looking for a suitable battery that was small enough to fit in a keychain unit and give smartphones true extended battery life. We tested 800-1200mAh batteries and finally decided on 1000mAh battery because it gave us the perfect balance of battery life and design flexibility for the keychain unit.
Through several iterations of sketch prototypes and testing with an experienced manufacturer we now have a production ready model that we are very happy with and ready to deliver to you.
All we need is you
This is where we need your support. We think KEYCHARGE is an awesome product and we are super excited about it, but we need your help to turn it into a reality. We have lots of exciting discounts and special rewards available to our kickstarter backers, and we hope that together we can turn this product into a something special that you are going to love!
Risks and challenges
We really believe in KEYCHARGE and have worked hard to develop and promote it in the best way possible. Our first challenge is to spread the word about our project, share our excitement, and show the vision behind KEYCHARGE.
We are committed to provide the best quality components, tooling, manufacture, and quality control and have done our best to mitigate and minimise the risks associated to delivering the KEYCHARGE to market in several ways:
- We have well tested and working prototypes.
- We are working with a manufacturer with lots of hardware experience.
- We have a team member on the ground in China, so we can minimise delays and maintain the full design and quality visualised by us.
We believe in a close and friendly relationship with our backers, and we love the way Kickstarter keeps creators and backers in touch. We will use this platform to keep you updated on the status of the project, and will communicate immediately any challenge that might arise. If you have any questions, suggestions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
