USB Cable for iPhone and Micro USB That Fits in Your Wallet
The Slimmest Charging and Data Cable for iPhone
Our quest was simple: a charging cable for your iPhone portable enough for you to always have it on you. Being ultra-portable, however, wasn't enough; it needed to fit into your life. So we designed ChargeCard in the shape of a business card, and at only three times the thickness of a credit card. With this form factor, the ChargeCard fits naturally into your wallet, purse or pocket. It's there when you need it, and out of your way when you don't.
And Now for Micro USB, Too
Use It Anywhere
ChargeCard uses power from USB ports to charge your phone. USB ports can be found on many consumer electronics, allowing you to grab a quick charge for your phone wherever you may be.
Works with: TVs, Laptos, Desktops, Cable Boxes, Game Consoles, Cars, Stereos, Electric Keyboards, Drum Sets and More
Sleek, Practical Design
At 0.1" thick (2.54mm), ChargeCard fits easily into even the most compact wallets. You can even store it underneath many iPhone cases. ChargeCard's body is made from durable ABS plastic and its foldout USB arm is made of a flexible thermoplastic elastomer.
Designed to Work with Bulky Cases
We understand the need for accessories to work without you having to remove your trustworthy case. This is why we made the ChargeCard's iPhone port protrude far enough to work with large cases such as OtterBox.
Why We Need Your Pledge
We have proven the concept, refined the design, and finalized our production plans while establishing manufacturing partners. Because of the great initial cost of cutting the molds and dies, we need your help to move through to production. We will use all Kickstarter funds to move ChargeCard into production and get yours packaged and shipped right to your door.
For ChargeCard for iPhone, Choose From One of Three Color Choices
For Micro USB ChargeCard, Choose Either Black, White or Bird-on-Black
Thanks for Your Support :)
Regarding future iPhones and the potential of a different connector, we have indeed seen the rumors and we're eagerly awaiting to develop for the future connector once Apple releases its specifications. For now though, ours works on the over 200 million iPhones sold to date, including the many hundreds of millions of iPods (and let's not forget iPads, too!).
We're currently designing a micro USB version and we hope to have it ready soon!
Yes. The length of ChargeCard, 3.25'', does indeed include the iPhone connector. Because ChargeCard is slightly shorter than a credit card, it can even fit in slim wallets that have tight sleeves.
No. ChargeCard is a USB cable. This is how we're able to make it so thin and portable. Luckily, USB ports are everywhere so you'll always have somewhere to plugin when you've got a charger that stows so easily in your wallet, purse or pocket.
Sorry to tell all you LifeProof case users out there that you'll have to remove it before using ChargeCard. This is because the LifeProof case extends too far below the end of the phone thus blocking the sides of ChargeCard. From what we understand, this is an issue for many other iPhone accessories, too.
