Design on Impulse a design team based in London has created what has to be one of the smallest smartphone charger devices available, called The Nipper.
The Nipper has been designed to use regular AA batteries to help keep your smartphone topped up with juice and is small enough for you to carry it around wherever you go
Watch the video below to learn more about this unique design that has taken to Kickstarter to raise the £6,000 and has available a select few Nippers priced at just £12.
The Nipper doesn’t depend on you remembering to charge it, and it relies on something readily available everywhere AA batteries. The Nipper was primarily designed for emergency use. When all else fails, when all hope is lost – in situations where you desperately need to use your phone but have no access to laptops, electrical sockets, wind turbines or solar panels the Nipper will be there for you.
The Nipper is a tiny 17mm x 17mm x 17mm cube and it weighs just 10g. It’s designed to be small enough to fit perfectly on your keyring, or to fit handily into a pocket or bag. It truly is the world’s smallest phone charger.
It couldn’t be easier. When not in use, the Nipper is always with you: attached to your keyring or in your pocket or bag. When you need to charge your phone, simply open the Nipper, place two AA batteries between the magnets and connect it to your phone.
The Nipper currently works with any phone or other device with a micro-USB connector (Samsung, HTC, LG, Nokia, etc). We’re also developing a version compatible with the iPhone, so stay tuned.
