We’re all excited about the next great thing we can use our smartphones for, but one thing we're not excited about is battery life. Managing battery levels is a real hassle, but it doesn't need to be so difficult. 

Introducing ON: the simplest way to charge.

Will my phone work with ON?

The ON Charger works with any device that comes with Qi wireless charging. Check out our full list of compatible smartphones here

The ON Case for iPhone 6 both enables wireless charging and includes the ON Charge Ring magnetic interface. We've also just announced the ON Case for Galaxy S6, further enhancing its inbuilt wireless charging by adding the ON Charge Ring.  

We're working to support even more devices as soon as possible. Find out more about our stretch goals further down.

What makes charging with ON so much better?

1. Forget cables

Simply place your smartphone 'on' top and it starts charging. Being cable free also means there's one less thing you have to remember.

 5. Recharging is effortless

You can recharge ON simultaneously with your smartphone. An overnight charge will leave both devices fully restored and keep you powered for days.

6. You can even recharge wirelessly

Recharge ON using another wireless charger or the old fashioned way with the micro-usb cable included. If you have multiple ON chargers you can also stack them to recharge together from a single outlet.

Key Features

The ON Magnetic Charge Ring

The ON Magnetic Charge Ring is a simple but effective solution to enhance wireless charging. Particularly convenient for mobile use, the corresponding charge rings in both the case and charger magnetically snap together to ensure that your phone stays charging and completely aligned. 

ON delivers what wireless charging has promised for so long - total convenience and effortless charging that just works.

Battery and Wireless Charging

The ON charger has a Qi wireless transmitter (top) to charge your smartphone and Qi wireless receiver (bottom) to recharge itself. Combined with a 5000mAh battery, you can go for days without connecting to a wall outlet and forget about cables all together.

Charge + Sync with the ON Case for iPhone 6

Not only does the ON Case for iPhone 6 enable wireless charging, you can still connect to your computer to sync and charge using a cable when needed.

Features Overview

Color Options

The ON Case and ON Charger are available in both matte black and matte white color options.

Stretch Goals

It's our mission to bring the enhanced functionality and protection of the ON Case to as many devices as possible. With your help we can make it happen sooner and if we reach our stretch goals below we will unlock new pledge options to pre-order cases for the iPhone 6 Plus and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge.

Tech Specs

Our design process

As designers and entrepreneurs we're used to travelling and working long hours, therefore we own a tonne of charging products.

Our team talked about the separation between the products we use for recharging at home and those we use mobile charging. Most of us use a cable or dock at home and some other backup solution when we're out and about, but we knew this wasn't ideal. 

The current situation
The current situation

Power banks offer great flexibility because they can charge your phone multiple times, but recharging them is a problem. It's hard enough to make sure your phone is always charged without having to worry about how much battery is left in your power bank.

We realized that if we could create a single device for charging both at home and on the go it would eliminate this problem - a docking station and power bank all in one.

Going wireless

Carrying multiple cables is one of the major drawbacks of using a power bank, which led us to explore wireless charging. We were however aware of some limitations when using wireless technology in mobile situations.

Getting the placement right can take some guesswork and maintaining connection can be a problem when moving around.

Adapting the technology to suit the problem

We set ourselves the goal of creating a clean and simple method to locate and secure devices while charging. 

Finally, we arrived at the ON Charge Ring - a magnet assisted design that eliminates any complexity from usage while still being cross-compatible with other devices.

Current Status

We've completed multiple rounds of prototypes refining the design and testing different magnet strengths. We now have several fully functioning units which we continue to test ourselves. We have also already put them through testing with a small group of users and we've had fantastic feedback from everyone who has tried them.

Manufacturing Plan

All of our prototypes have been made in cooperation with our manufacturing partners so that we're ready to start tooling straight away. Our team are experienced and we are partnering with the top wireless charging suppliers to produce ON. 

As soon as we reach our target goal we will start work to complete these final steps. Our goal is to get the product into your hands as soon as possible and as a backer you will also receive regular updates of our progress every step of the way.

Our target delivery date is before the end of August, 2015.

Timeline by week

We are a small team of designers and entrepreneurs on a mission to make life simpler through innovative design.

Risks and challenges

We have a great team experienced in producing high quality consumer electronics. We are also based in Hong Kong and China and we have worked directly with our manufacturing partners from day one to reduce the risks involved. Being our second Kickstarter, we know what it takes.

The remaining challenges to be faced include final tooling, testing, compliance, and production.

MFi (Made for iPhone) Certification - This requires external testing by Apple, however we are working with an Apple approved supplier and from our previous experience we are confident that we can achieve this.

Timings - We intend to reward our backers by delivering the best quality product in the shortest time possible. Although we can't guarantee there won't be any delays, we can guarantee that we will work hard to solve any issues as fast as possible and keep you informed every step of the way.

Shipment - We have again partnered with an experienced fulfillment service to ensure that all rewards are delivered quickly and reliably directly from Hong Kong as soon as production is finished.
