A better mobile charging solution

The USBeast™ slips onto your Cordless tool batteries to become the most powerful and versatile portable USB charger in the world.

Charge your Phone and Tablet at the same time.
Charge your Phone and Tablet at the same time.

                                                                   U.S. Patent Pending

Example: A fully charged 4AH lithium battery can charge the latest iPhone or Galaxy S, more than 6 TIMES! Or provide your phone with over 150 hours of talk time, 75 hours of internet use, or 100 days in standby mode!

Double or Triple how long you can work on your laptop without an outlet. (laptops that charge via USB)

Where would I use it?  

On the Job site:

Don't let this happen to you. USBeast™ prevents cell phone abuse.
Don't let this happen to you. USBeast™ prevents cell phone abuse.

Construction workers and other technicians frequently find themselves in situations where there are no convenient outlets to charge their devices, which are being drained by dead-zones and increased usage.

 At the camp site:

Enjoy your Bluetooth speaker for DAYS, not minutes.
Enjoy your Bluetooth speaker for DAYS, not minutes.

Cordless tools and accessories are becoming a staple of the modern camping trip. Tool batteries are inflating mattresses, lighting the camp site, and now with the USBeast™, they will charge your mobile devices as well. Even without a cell signal, you will still want your phone's camera and other features to be working.

You can't be a hero with a dead battery.
You can't be a hero with a dead battery.

In your Emergency kit:

If you are without power, the USBeast™ will provide charging power for days.
If you are without power, the USBeast™ will provide charging power for days.

A Lithium battery will stay charged for at least 1 year. When the power goes out, reach for the USBeast™ and one of your tool batteries. You will be able to keep your phone in use for several days or keep it in standby mode for several weeks.

But wont the internet and cell service be down anyway?

Not necessarily ---- During a typical power outage, phones usually continue to work.

During large scale power outages, there have been many instances when the power grid has been down for a while, yet other infrastructure continues to work. After Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy, mobile data providers built much larger fleets of C.O.W.s (Cell on Wheels) to roll into a disaster area and provide service (should that be "herds" instead of "fleets"?).

Providing the power that provides health care:

The USBeast™ is not just beneficial on the job or camp site, but has numerous benefits in emergency situations for disaster relief workers AND medical professionals with limited access to electricity.

Less developed countries are utilizing cell phone and mobile technology more and more. The USBeast™ can assist Doctors and other Medical Professionals in these areas by making sure that Medical Equipment such as Mobile Ultrasound Machines, USB Powered EKG’s, Mobile Heart Monitors and Phoropters (used by optometrists for eye exams) are fully charged and able to immediately provide healthcare to those in need. 

Examples of medical instruments the USBeast™ can power.

How fast will the USBeast™ charge your devices?

 * Some devices are limited closer to 1 amp to prevent damage to their batteries.


How do I use it?

Simply place onto one of your cordless tool batteries. A blue light indicates that the unit is powered on and ready to charge your USB device. Plug a USB cable into the USBeast™ and into your device, as you would normally.

Why buy a USBeast™ instead of another portable USB charger?

Wanna talk nerdy?

As the chart shows, the USBeast™ devours the competition in every category.

You can purchase a USBeast™, a cordless tool battery + Charger and STILL get MORE charging power for your money than if you bought a competitor's portable USB charger!

                                                         Mobile device immortality™

 Battery and cable not included.

Your help at any level brings the USBeast™ one step closer to a toolbox near you.

Risks and challenges

USBeast™ Electronics will be producing the USBeast™ portable USB charger. Hundreds of hours have already been spent designing and perfecting this product.

Challenge:
In order to keep the cost of the USBeast™ affordable, we need to scale up our quantities. Manufacturers are already in place that can deliver the quality craftsmanship that we demand once the campaign is successful.

Risks:
With months of preparation under our belts, we hope that everything will be peachy and go exactly right. However, we also understand that creating a unique product can create unique circumstances and things might not always go as planned. We assure our backers that no matter what circumstances may arise, we are 100% committed to the satisfaction of every individual backer. We're in this together!
