About

Your Safety Net

If you've ever been on a hiking trip and got separated from your friends, or your car broke down and you lost your car charger and need to call for roadside assistance, or the elevator in your apartment building got stuck and now you’re trapped as you wait for help, but you need to call your workplace to let them know you will be late, and you meant to charge your phone once you got to your car but you didn't make it there, than like me, your phone has died at very impracticable moments. Unfortunately, there are no wall outlets in an elevator or in the woods, or even on buses or subways. What are you going to do? You look down and realize you have the solution hidden inside your belt buckle. Now you can contact the person you need to and go on with your day. The best part is, you don't have to walk around with a charger and wires sticking out of your pocket, the charger is attached to your belt, and has no wires! Patent Pending.

How It Works

The connector stays hidden in the buckle. The product comes with three connectors: One for iPhone 3 and 4, one for iPhone 5, and one to fit all Android phones. It also charged Bluetooth. Plug in the connector needed for your phone into the buckle’s battery. 4 LED lights on the buckle indicate battery status, with one light on indicating 25% and all four lit indicating 100%. The battery with connector can be removed for charging. It can be charged with a USB cable plugged into a PC or wall charger (wall charger not included).

WHERE WE ARE NOW, and what have we done.

We have working prototypes that have been tested with all iPhones and many Android phones.


These are functional models with a surface mounted PCB, the plastic bottom part of the battery housing are rapid prototypes and all the metal parts (Stainless Steel and Brass) are made by CNC machine. Production parts for the hard plastics will be polycarbonate. And all other parts of the buckle will be made from stainless steel and 100% Brass (Nor coating) We already have the factory lined up ready to start working on the tooling . We visited them in person in HK and China about three month ago and we feel very confident about working with them.

How will your funding be used?

We have done a tremendous amount of work so far on the buckle  design and development of the buckle charger electronics, but need your help going the last mile.

We need to pay for tooling for the metal parts (Stainless Steel and Brass) mold for bottom plastic part of the battery housing and make sure we have all certifications needed. CE/ROHS/FCC

The money will also be used for the first production run.

If this project is fully funded, we expect our first production run to arrive from the factory towards the end of November. So expect the shipment in December 2013.

Projects that do not reach their goal do not receive any of the funds, so please help us get there so we can deliver the buckle charger to you the backers ASAP.
