One our designers, who had an an iPhone 4 at the time, was continually looking for his charging cable. One day he raised a question: What if there was a small wall charger, small enough to fit on a keychain? And, even better, what if it was cordless? How great would that be? The next day we met with an electrical engineer to see if the concept was feasible. He was guardedly optimistic,Over the next four months we came up with and rejected several designs before finalizing one that is essentially today's TravelBuddy.(Formerly called JuiceBuddy)

Initial Sketch / Prototype
Confident our initial design was feasible, we began a months-long search for an Apple-certified factory to produce a prototype.
We selected a Chinese factory that has had extensive experience with MFi products, having produced over fifteen MFi accessories. They also have an outstanding reputation for quality control and reliability.
THE TRAVELCARD - OUR FIRST PROJECT ON KICKSTARTER
The TravelCard (www.travelcardcharger.com) is an ultra-slim (3/16") charger that fits in your wallet. It was a great success on Kickstarter, with 1465 pledges and 564% of our funding goal reached. All pledges have been delivered.

Risks and challenges
As with any manufactured item, delays could occur because of high demand and resulting component delivery problems. But since Apple has approved the initial design, we fully expect a fairly quick MFI approval. We also feel we have allowed ample time for pre -production testing, the initial production run and delivery of the TravelBuddys to our backers.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
