About this project
Hi! Thanks for stopping by my project's page. With your help, I'd love to get Wi.U Paired up with as many iPhones as possible.
Wi.U is a charger for all iPhone models is the world's only Smart Charger. While all other chargers in the world are brain-dead, The Wi.U Smart Charger allows you to set a date, time, or battery percentage and it will automatically activate. Every Smart Phone deserves a Smart Charger.
The light on the front of the charger illuminates when Wi.U is charging your phone. When charging is complete, it turns off.
Wi.U has a removable clip on the back, so that you can wear it on your belt. This gives you easy access when needing to reach your phone quickly--a great position for a mobile lifestyle.
The choice to use an iPhone application to enable smart charging seemed like an obvious one. But, I wanted to take it a step further and create a charger that had artificial intelligence--one that recognized when your battery was low and could automatically begin recharging it. One that gave you the option to set a time or date or even battery percentage--and it could begin charging from any of those variables.
The material is designed using a piano lacquer finish for a cool, refined look. Over 3 years of design, testing, and collaborating with creatives from multiple countries, has helped result in the most beautiful wireless charger in the world.
The combination of it’s distinguished look, its powerful technology, and intelligent charging, have helped me to reinvent the phone charger. I am excited to have started a company around this concept.
Here's where you come in. Manufacturing is expensive and maintaining a strong network with all the partners I collaborate with can consume resources. But, I believe in the power of individuals to organize & bring ideas to life.
By pledging $100, you're essentially pre-ordering the Wi.U in either the White on Black color or Black on White Color. By pledging $120, you're essentially pre-ordering the Wi.U in any one of the 10+ colors shown.
If you pledge at the Limited Edition level you will get one of the serialized Gold Limited Edition versions.
With your support I hope to have the Wi.U shipping to backers by mid to late June. I hope that you are truly inspired by the idea and choose to support the project. Please spread the word and share with your friends. Everyone has at least one friend who is an iPhone enthusiast. Thank You! Note: Wi.U will retail for $129.00 & $149.00. iPhone, Apple logo and Apple are registered trademarks of Apple Inc.
