ChargeKey: A Key-Sized Charging Cable For Your Smartphone
Smartphones are not only getting higher storage capacities, but are also getting more powerful. When was the last time you’ve gone two days without having to recharge your smartphone? Outside of using battery packs, finding alternative ways to charge your smartphone, or always charging your phone overnight (seriously, don’t do it), you can always bring your charging cable around.
It’s no bigger than your average key, which is great since you can treat it like just another key. It also has a quick release for constant latching and unlatching for when you need to plug it into a USB port to charge your device.
The ChargeKey has a Micro USB version and a Apple Lightning Connector variant. The Micro USB caters for many Android devices as well as cameras or your kid’s portable gaming device. The Lightning Connector supports the latest range of iOS devices including the latest iPad, iPad Mini, iPod Touch, iPod Nano and iPhone 5S/5C.
Despite its stiff look, the ChargeKey is reportedly flexible around the middle, to accommodate charging sessions. So far it is only present in this color but we’re hoping that there will be more color variety in the future.
You can pre-order a iPhone 5S or Micro USB Chargekey today for $25. This is a first production run limited to the first 10,000 orders per cable type. Shipping date is scheduled for 30 November so get your order in to grab one for yourself.
