iPhone owners and those with smartphones equipped with Qi wireless charging technology may be interested in a new smart jacket called the Snow-C which has been designed by a team of developers at The Waves. The jacket is fitted with an integrated wireless charging system offering 15w of wireless charging capacity via a slimline 3,000 MAh battery pack which is capable of charging from flat to full in just 40 minutes.
The batteries have been specially located in the smart jacket to not impede comfort, and its designers say you won’t feel, or be bothered by them “touching the curves of your body”. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the Snow-C smart jacket launched via Kickstarter this week to raise the $12,000 required to take the concept into production.
The Snow-C smart jacket takes the form of a down jacket equipped with a patent-pending wireless charging system that allows you to forget about your smartphone battery life and enjoy your day. The jacket design has been tested in heavy rain and freezing conditions below 32 degrees and is suitable for outdoor activities such as snow, kayaking, hiking, climbing, skiing, snowboarding and walking, as well as your everyday needs. Internally the jacket is equipped with a 5v 3,000mAH ultra-thin, lightweight power bank that is connected to a micro-USB cable and the charger. The energy is then passed to the wireless charger, and it’s coils and immediately ready to start charging your smartphone using magnetic flux technology.
The Snow-C smart jacket is now available to back with early bird pledges starting from $169, offering a considerable 32% saving off the suggested retail price of $249. Delivery is expected to take place during September 2018 if all goes well. For more details and full specifications jump over to the official Kickstarter campaign page by following the link below.
