Many of the portable smartphone battery solutions currently available are still fairly large in size and you have to remember to take them with you when you leave the house to charge your smartphone.
Shaun Teblum and Rob Gold have experienced similar problems and have now designed a small yet powerful and completely portable smartphone battery that attaches innocuously to your keys called the bKey.
The bKey requires no charging cables as the connectors are included on both ends of the battery allowing you to easily top it up when required without the need to carry an additional cable. Check out the video below to learn more about this handy battery that can add extra juice to your smartphone whilst away from the grid. Its creators explain a little more :
“Smartphone battery cases are bulky and can block the earphone jack. Small stand alone batteries are often too big for your pocket and require a cable to make them work.
bKey easily fits in your pocket and everything is built right in to charge it and use it. You never have to remember to bring a cable or annoying adapter tips with you again.
bKey took over 2 years to develop because we wanted to get it just right. After doing extensive market research and working closely with focus groups, our R&D team found that the overwhelming majority of people preferred a cable-free battery that was small and convenient over a larger, bigger-charge alternative that requires the use of a cable.”
The bKey project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $25,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. So if you think bKey is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website now to make a pledge and help bKey become a reality.
