About this project

Thank you very much for the backers to our first campaign! View the first campaign here: http://igg.me/at/jiffyjiffy

Small, stylish wearable device that fits in your pocket. Pull it out when your other devices need saving in any emergency.Jiffy offers a very quick charge by using the new technology "Quick Charge 2.0"

  We are living in the time of technology that has been developing more and faster than ever. Technology has become essential in today’s world. Our lives have become closely linked to mobile electronic devices, because they give us freedom of communication.

Have you run out of battery?

 Jiffy helps your devices when they run out of juice. When the battery runs out devices and gadgets become useless pieces of plastic and metal. They become unusable. Jiffy is an eco-charger that truly offers freedom and unlimited independence when it comes to charging your mobile devices and gadgets.That’s it! You are completely independent of any power supply, electric network, or wall outlet. Jiffy is an eco-charger that has a priceless advantage both in everyday life and especially when travelling and going on new adventures even to the ends of the world. THE IDEAL SITUATION- to maintain a last call, an emergency call when you are in a critical situation, to send a last text, or study a map with GPS in case you get lost and can’t find sources to charge your device nearby. TOTAL ENERGY INDEPENDENCE- charge devices and gadgets at any time, any place and without taking in to consideration the weather, or temperature outside.

Imagine a scenario of being lost in the woods, in the desert, or in a jungle. Your phones battery will be assured only by Jiffy!

PRIORITY- compared to other methods of charging gadgets, Jiffy doesn’t need gas balloons with chemical reactions as other chargers. You can use it at night, in the shade, in thick forests unlike solar chargers. Jiffy also doesn’t need wind, or water currents. 

IMPORTANT-Fastest charging technology "Quick Charge 2.0", no traditional electricity, no air pollution, and you don’t need to look for a power outlet. In this way you don’t need to worry about where you will charge your mobile phone, camera, Bluetooth headset, or any other devices that can be charged through USB.

Charge while on any type of transportation: train, ship, bus, or even wagon. You can rest assured and camp as much as you want, do extreme mountain sports, go hiking, or rock climbing without worrying that your camera, or smart phone will be without battery and you will remain without communication.

We all know how problematic it is to find an electrical power outlet when going on longer trips. Also we know situations when electricity shuts off at home because of powerful rain, wind, or other natural phenomena that cause damage to power grids. You will be able to access the internet, radio, or other news portals in times of danger and emergency.

Thanks to the USB attachment with LED light, Jiffy can be used as a light source. It does not need batteries and can be used at any time when there are blackouts and electricity and light are most needed. It is perfect to have a Jiffy handy in your emergency kit.

MULTI USB- the cable is perfect to charge any gadget at any time. Charge your devices and gadgets, or help a friend that needs help, but needs a different kind of cable.

How does Jiffy work?

Jiffy represents a USB charger that mechanically produces electricity without eliminating toxic substances into the atmosphere. Electricity production is carried out by a three phase asynchronous micro generator with very high productivity, which is driven by a complex mechanical watch. With a simple movement the mechanism is charged with kinetic energy which is transmitted to the micro generators. The charging module is 5V USB that charges all the devices that support the standard USB. The intensity of electric current is up to 2200mA and using the new technology "Quick Charge 2.0" will assure your device a very quick charge.For the people that are less technical, Jiffy with the 2200mA can simultaneously charge 6 smart phones with 4” screens that are navigating the internet through Wi-Fi, or 4 smart phones that are navigating the internet through 3G. Technical info about the prototype: Behind the micro generator is mounted a controller that has the function of continuously recovering the current and 5V voltage stabilization. Also an electrolytic capacitor which has the function of a micro accumulator is connected in the scheme to remove the current fluctuations produced by mechanical processes under the influence of kinetic energy.

We documented our work process and wanted to share with you the important steps.

Thanks for making it all the way down here to meet team Jiffy!

What we intend to do after the campaign is finished? After the Kickstarter campaign is finished we will start work on Jiffy immediately because we know that time is the biggest enemy for a start up. We know that we will encounter obstacles along the way, but we are ready to face them and if everything goes as planned we will deliver Jiffy within the timeline that we estimated. We hope that Jiffy is just the first of many devices that we work on. For us this is hopefully going to be a successful campaign that will turn into a small business and generate enough income to give us the possibility to work on bigger projects. It would be great to work on other projects that will bring solutions to problems like reusable energy, eco friendly energy, global warming etc. These are the problems that bother us and we hope that with your help we will be able to start attending to them.  

Risks and challenges

Although we do not see any direct risks and challenges, there are always unforeseen obstacles that may present themselves during the production process. We hope to run everything as streamlined as possible and also ahead of schedule to get Jiffy the charger that keeps on giving out to the world.
