If the power cord gets pulled or someone trips over it, with ChargeSAFE the jack will SAFELY separate from the plug.

ChargeSAFE is an amazingly simple laptop accessory that plugs into the power jack of the computer and provides a breakaway connection.

Why ?

In the event the power cord gets pulled or someone trips over the cord the ChargeSAFE jack will separate from the plug providing a level of safety never before available in PC laptop products. With ChargeSAFE, working in a crowded coffee house allows you to use your power cord with the reassurance that you have an extra margin of safety for you and others around you. ChargeSAFE prevents damage to the computer, the power jack and/or prevents personal injury. The ChargeSAFE plug is shaped so it is effortless to re-connect should it become dislodged. ChargeSAFE consists of two parts: 1. the fixed plug and 2. the releasable jack. The device avoids damage to the built-in laptop power jack by transferring forces to the ChargeSAFE device.

Apple® laptops have a built-in system called Magsafe®. Our design serves a similar purpose for PC laptops providing a breakaway connector.

ChargeSAFE is simple to use – just plug it in your laptop power port and then insert the OEM power plug into the ChargeSAFE jack. No setup or software is needed. 

ChargeSAFE will be initially available for recent model Dell®, HP® and Alienware® laptop and notebook computers.

ChargeSAFE is made of high quality materials : gold plated contacts and high power spring loaded pins.

ChargeSAFE is Patent Pending.

WHAT WE’LL DO WITH THE FUNDING

It’s costly to get a product to market. It takes time, perseverance and money – sometimes lots of it.

Injection Molds - The tools used to build the plastic parts will cost upwards of $20,000.

Procurement - We’ll need to buy minimum allotments of the internal components to make it feasible to produce for a reasonable price. That includes the gold plated circuit boards, spring loaded pins, power jacks, power plugs and, of course, the three injection molded plastic parts.

Legal - We’ve filed patents to protect our ideas but will still have fees incurred to cover our design after product launch and in the future.

Packaging - We'll produce packaging to protect the product during shipment. We’re still thinking about the initial Kickstarter packaging and we hope to eventually develop retail packaging if the market warrants.

Miscellaneous expenses - We’ll have to visit manufacturers, ship parts, buy tools and equipment, etc.

We are estimating delivery in the June 2012 timeframe.

Thanks for supporting our product !

  • This past year PC laptops and notebooks passed desktops for the first time ever in total sales for a given year. About 160 million were sold last year and the market is still growing. While tablets are a fast growing segment they still have a long way to go to overtake laptop and notebook sales. To put it in perspective Apple has sold less than 160 million iPads in its history as of Jan 2012.
