About

We Deserve a Better Charging Experience

Each year our devices get smarter, faster and more intelligent. However, the charging tech still lags far behind. 

UsBidi is created as a charger that is reliable, battery saving, time saving, mess/tangle free, and worthy of our beloved phones and tablets. 

A charger with a mix of great intelligence and beautiful art, will make our daily charging task easier, faster and happier.

Charging Has Evolved, for Android and iOS Devices

UsBidi is the most intelligent charger that not only doubles the charging speed on computer USB, but also automatically shuts off power completely once fully charged so you don't have to unplug. It spares your device from battery killers like heat and mini-charging-cycles, extending battery life with healthier battery and longer-lasting charges.

It has additional awesome features - LED indicator showing you at-a-glance the charging status, magnetic ends for tidy hold, durable and colorful braided exterior with a variety of lengths (1, 3 or 6 Feet / 0.3, 0.9 or 1.8 Meters) to choose from. 

UsBidi charger is designed to work with both your phones and tablets. It is available in two versions - MFi certified Lightening version for Apple devices and Micro USB version for Android devices.

Keeps Battery Healthier and Maximizes Its Life

How does this work?

A lot of us leave our phones and tablets plugged in charging for extended periods, such as overnight. When left plugged in after the battery is full, a regular charger will cause elevated temperature and mini-charging-cycles, damaging the battery capacity and shortening its life over time. 

UsBidi is created with an intelligent built-in PCB that shuts off charging circuit completely once battery is full, as though it has been unplugged. And your device will charge again next time when you plug it in. 

The auto. power shut-off feature is comparable to an "auto-unplug" function. No more stressing your precious battery for 8 hours every night, wearing down its capacity.

There are billions of devices left plugged in every night wasting a little energy and generating heat. UsBidi's "auto-unplug" feature could save considerable energy, if we are lucky enough to reach great number of consumers with your help.

Charges Your Phones 2 x as Fast

How does this work?

When your phone is plugged into a computer's USB port, the regular charger will do data syncing and charging at the same time, which is the reason why the charging speed is so slow. 

UsBidi charger gets a touch switch that stops data syncing once pressed, so that all the power available will be used to boost the charging speed.

When you finish syncing, simply press the button to switch into Smart & Fast mode. UsBidi will double the charging speed and cut your charging time in half.

Magnetic Ends for Tidy Hold

Store UsBidi using its magnetic ends anywhere, always mess free. 

LED Indicator Shows You Charging Status at-a-Glance

You don't have to pick up the phone to read its charging status any more.

 UsBidi in the News

Why Did We Create UsBidi Charger?

A regular charger gets messy. It breaks, wastes energy and slowly kills the battery with heat and mini-cycles.

How often do you have to charge your phone despite being promised 14 hours of battery? With the regular charger causing battery damages, your experience just gets worse!

Experts warn us, "Don't leave your fully charged phone plugged in". It can damage and weaken your battery over time. 

Battery Care Tips

Do You Find These Familiar?

Apple tells us, "Remove certain cases during charging". Samsung says, "Unplug once fully charged". 

 But it shouldn't be this complicated. That's why we have created UsBidi.

Project Timeline

We started the idea and feasibility study in May 2014 to safeguard our devices battery by re-engineering the charger. And soon we identified more improvements that can tackle people’s common complaints about charging.

Following over a year of intense work on concepts, detailed design, manufacturer assessment & selection, prototyping, testing and fine-tuning, now we are ready to go into mass production with your help.

Where Will Your Pledges Go

Risks and challenges

From years of engineering experience with daily cross discipline collaboration, we understand what it takes to bring an innovative product to fruition.
We've chosen to spend the whole last year going through all the processes, and refused to start the Kickstarter campaign until now everything was all set and ready to go.
The selected manufacturing partner is one of the top charger/cable manufacturers, and has been supplying mobile charging product all over the world along with the 1st-gen smartphones. It has demonstrated its experience, attention to details and effective certified management systems, when producing our working prototypes.
We're going to use the same manufacturer for the next mass production, and we will also supervise the manufacturing and QC process. This way, the project risks are minimized.
We'll keep you all informed with updates during the campaign as well as during the production!
