Hi Kickstarter! Thanks for checking out our project.

The JuiceTank is the first iPhone case to feature an integrated wall charger that folds flat to provide maximum portability. The automated plug deploys easily and allows you to plug your phone directly into any outlet. No cords required.

THOUGHTFUL DESIGN

We designed the case with a micro USB pass through so you can charge and sync your iPhone with a micro USB cord... if you have one handy. If not, you'll always have your JuiceTank with you to recharge your iPhone.         

The case will be made out of a high grade polycarbonate to protect your phone from daily wear and tear. The inside of the case will feature a soft touch rubberized finish to keep your iPhone snug and secure.

No clumsy cords.  Nothing extra to carry. Just the protection you need with the flexibility to charge whenever and wherever you want. 

Poor battery life is one of the biggest complaints about the iPhone.  Help us get this product to market and together we will solve this problem once and for all.  

LIMITED EDITION

The Kickstarter Limited Edition JuiceTank features green accents and is available exclusively for Kickstarter backers. 

THANK YOU

We are using the funds we raise on Kickstarter for tooling and to begin production. Kickstarter projects that do not reach their goal do not receive any of the funds, so help us get there with time to spare. With your help, we can begin shipping the JuiceTank as soon as Summer 2012.

  • The JuiceTank has a built-in micro USB port allowing users to charge their iPhone with any Micro USB charger. This includes car chargers. Micro USB chargers are standard for all new smartphones (except Apple's) - including Android and Blackberry devices. Now you can use an iPhone, Android, OR Blackberry charger to juice up your iPhone. Unfortunately though, you will need to remove your iPhone from the JuiceTank to charge with an iPhone charger.

  • We have a pledge level where you can pre-order a case for the next generation iPhone. We don't yet have the specs, but as soon as we do, we'll make a JuiceTank for it.

    Last updated:
  • We built a micro USB port into the case to give users the option to charge with a cord... if they have one handy. In the event you don't have a cord, we have your back. And you can still use the phone while it's plugged in if you use speakerphone or have a bluetooth headset.

    Unfortunately Apple does not license out the "female" 30 pin adapter. So it would be impossible to have a 30 pin (the flat end of the wire that plugs into an iPhone) pass-through built into the case. But with the micro USB pass-through you can charge your iPhone with any Micro USB (read: Android or Blackberry) charger in addition to an iPhone charger (which you would have to remove the case to use).

  • The first JuiceTank is designed with a NEMA 1 plug (two flat parallel blades). It will fit standard power outlets in the United States, Canada, Mexico and any other location that uses NEMA 1/5-15 outlets such as in certain parts of Central America, South America, Japan, Taiwan, and the Caribbean. The JuiceTank is dual voltage and can support 110v to 240v.

    We are working on developing a JuiceTank that will work with international power outlets and hope to have it available in the near future.

  • The JuiceTank occupies only one outlet at a time.

  • Designing the JuiceTank was a collaborative effort. Lloyd Gladstone and Jesse Pliner came up with the initial design for the JuiceTank. They worked with the brilliant design team at Concepto Studios (www.ConceptoStudios.com) to refine the overall aesthetics and develop the initial prototypes for the JuiceTank.
