About this project
PROJECT UPDATE DEC 12, 2015:
Check out the the results for the great wall charger challenge! How does the HyperCharge HUB stack up against theAnker 2.4Amp chargers? Can the chargers adequately quench the Apple iPad AIR2's thirst for 2.4Amps of power? Check out the vid below.
Results: Both the Anker chargers deliver below 2.05Amps. Well below the 2.4Amps required for the iPad AIR2. This means up to 15% longer waiting for your device to charge. Which can take up to over 30mins more to charge an iPad AIR2 vs a true 2.4Amp charger. What's your time worth to you?
HyperCharge HUB perfoms flawlessly as expected and delivers close to the 2.4Amp required by the iPad AIR2 as the device is over 50% charged. As new devices thirst for more power increases, they will require even greater power than what the iPad AIR2's 2.4Amp requires today. The need for more power just increases with every generation. This is the reason we rated the HyperCharge HUB to 3.5Amp. Above and beyond what's needed today. We want the HUB to be your complete future proofed charging solution that delivers for your device's today and for tomorrow!
PROJECT UPDATE NOV 21, 2015:
The more consistent and stable the power delivery of a charger to a power hungry device such the Apple iPad AIR2,or Samsung Note 4, the faster they will charge! Don't settle for anything else! Don't settle for anything else. HyperCharge your devices today with the HyperCharge HUB!
Both the Belkin 2.4Amp and iClever 2.4Amp chargers deliver only 2.09Amps.Well below the 2.4Amps required for the iPad AIR2. This means up to 15% longer waiting for your device to charge. Which can take up to over 30mins more to charge an iPad AIR2 vs a true 2.4Amp charger. What's your time worth to you?
ChargeTech 2.4Amp charger delivers a true 2.4Amps. But there's a catch! A big one actually. When we plug another device, an Apple iPhone 5, the power output from the ChargeTech drops from 2.4Amp to 1.46Amp. A 40% drop in power! Which will take at least take another additional 90 minutes to charge the iPad to full capacity. The ChargeTech performs poorer than the original iPad Charger that comes from Apple. Worst of all when we take the iPhone back out the ChargeTech fails to go back to charging at 2.4Amp. This was shocking to us to say the least! What's your time worth to you?
HyperCharge HUB perfoms flawlessly as expected and delivers the 2.4Amp required by the iPad AIR2. Best of all, when we charge two devices, the iPad AIR2 and Apple iPhone 5, the power delivery to the iPad AIR2 stays a rock solid at 2.4Amp. Our favorite part is when we plug two devices, iPad AIR2 and iPhone 5, are plugged into the same HyperCharge port of the HUB. The power output jumps from 2.4A to 3.5Amp to support the needed power from the iPhone.
As new devices thirst for more power increases, they will require even greater power than what the iPad AIR2's 2.4Amp requires today. The need for more power just increases with every generation. This is the reason we rated the HyperCharge HUB to 3.5Amp. Above and beyond what's needed today. We want the HUB to be your complete future proofed charging solution that delivers for your device's today and for tomorrow!

Introducing the HyperCharge Hub. It HyperCharges your wall outlet and cuts your charging time up to 50% faster than any available solution in the market. Best of all we leveraged the components we already use for the LithiumCard to make it cost effective for you!
What's your TIME worth to you? Charge FASTER with the HUB!
The HyperCharge HUB outperforms the industry standard USB wall chargers. The HUB’s class leading 18W (3.5A) easily outperforms Apple’s 5W (1A) iPhone charger and 12W (2.4A) iPad charger. More power that’s safely delivered to your smartphone, or tablet, drastically cuts down the waiting time in charging your device to full capacity.
The HUB's Constant HyperCharging Technology allows you to charge your smartphone and tablet FASTER at the safest and most optimum levels.
Charge up to 1/2 the time with the HUB compared to a computer USB port (When charging an iPhone 6S PLUS)
Charge up to 25% faster with the HUB compared to the iPad 10W wall charger (When charging an iPad AIR 2)
Two USB HyperPorts on the HUB allows you the flexiblity to charge either Apple, or Android, devices at their most optimum and safe charging levels. And of course it also HyperCharges the LithiumCard and LithiumCard PRO ultra fast! The HUB is THE true all-around portable wall charger of the future that’s available now!
With two USB HyperPorts, you can HyperCharge your phone and accessory faster compared to your existing regular slow charger. Save time and charger faster with the HUB!
A multi-position power prong allows you to position the HUB at the best possible position to avoid someone, or something, accidentally tripping over it. The power prongs also neatly tucks away from snagging on clothing when taking the HUB on-the-go.
The HUB is the ultimate global traveler. It’s compatible with all global voltages. From 100 Volts up to 250 Volts. You can just take it with you anytime, anywhere - from the USA, North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa!*

Be rest assured that you will have the best solution for charging most of your mobile devices for many generations!
Risks and challenges
We looked at the aftermarket wall chargers that were available today and compared them to the industry benchmark from Apple and Samsung. As adequate as these solutions are a few years ago, we felt we could take the normal wall charging solution to the next level using our proprietary HyperCharging technology from our world renowned LithiumCard and LithiumCard PRO.
After intensive research on available options, we felt today's wall chargers are barely adequate to sufficiently power the most latest mobile devices. They are not future proofed for today and tomorrow's faster smartphones with even larger and brighter screens.
For example, less than 5 years ago, people believed USB wall chargers provided more than enough power for iPhone Gen 1 to 3, or about 1Amp.
Less than 3 years ago, USB powered wall charger power increased to 2Amps to meet the needs of tablets, such as iPad Gen 1 to 3.
Less than 2 years ago, USB powered wall charger power further increased to 2.4Amps to meet the needs to tablets and larger smartphones.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that power needs for smartphones and tablets will just keep increasing.
The LinearFlux solution for this ever increasing need for more power was to develop the HyperCharg Hub. It's been future proofed to deliver up to an industry leading 3.5Amps and provide two HyperPorts for Apple iOS and Android devices.
The HyperCharge Hub has met all compatability testing requirements and certifications. We need your kind pledge in order to go into the manufacturing stage, complete packaging assets, and meet minimum order quantities. Thank you for your support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
No, your iPhone and iPad have built-in power regulation. The HyperCharge HUB has proprietary HyperCharging smarts that communicates to your iOS’ charging circuit so it can continuously and safely charge at a faster rate of charge. Saves you time from waiting too long for a full charge!
Why is the HyperCharge HUB so much more powerful than the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad chargers from Apple?
Our extensive experience in HyperCharging from the LithiumCard and LithiumCard PRO has allowed us to patent a special charging technique that optimizes the efficiency of your Apple device to take in more charge safely. Smart!
No, your Android Phone or Tablet have built-in power regulation. The HyperCharge HUB has proprietary HyperCharging smarts that communicates to your Android’s charging circuit, so it can continuously and safely charge at a faster rate of charge. Saves you time from waiting too long for a full charge!

Up to 3.5Amps or 18Watts of continuous power!
Up to 4Amps of peak current or 20Watts of peak power. Yes, it’s that powerful!
Yes. The HyperCharge Hub can be used anywhere in the world that has wall outlet voltages ranging from 100 Volts up to 250 Volts. Now that's flexibility!
No, however, any adapter compatible for USA plugs (or in geek speak, NEMA 1-15P power plugs) are compatible with the HyperCharge Hub.
Yes, it's perfect for the power hungry Apple iPad PRO! We don't say the HUB is future proof for nothing. ;)
Unlike the Samsung fast charge, we do not pump up the voltage above typical USB voltages (5 Volts). Samsung uses up to 9Volts using QuallComm's QC2 charging standard. Our research shows using lower voltages preserves the battery capacity and life over time. We like to play it safe and instead provide more current that your phone will take-in safely.
No, the HyperCharge HUB is a superfast wall charger. So you will need to connect the HyperCharge HUB to a wall outlet to charge your USB devices.
However, if you want to purchase a portable battery charger solution you can pick our rewards that have the LithiumCard or LithiumCard PRO as part of the HyperCharge HUB bundle.
We use FedEX for international shipping. FedEX is reliable, provides accurate tracking, and has an established global network. We have used lower cost methods in previous campaigns before such as USPS. We found that we lost many packages since USPS, outside the USA, does not use their own global wide network, compared to the global carriers. In the end, lower cost shipping may save money to backers but heavily cost us in lost or "vanished" items. Lost items causes us to lose money and the backer to wait even longer for their reward. So as it stands, our FedEX shipping rates are more than reasonable considering its reliability. In short, your reward gets to you faster and more secure!
