Cell phone chargers can be a pain in the ass sometimes. The charger cases are always too bulky while plugs aren’t always available when you’re on the go and need to charge your phone. The new Kickstarter campaign aims to change the pain of chargers with the Fuel, a key ring sized charger that can power up your cell for extra talk time whenever you need. The Devotec Fuel Micro Charger is the smallest emergency phone charger, and its 220 milliAmp hour battery is designed to give you around 20 – 30 minutes extra talk time, or up to a few hours more standby, depending on how you use your cell phone. It’s great for when you have had an unexpected delay, or haven’t been able to fully charge your phone, and you need to make a few calls, send a work email or use your GPS and maps function to find your way home.
It’s so tiny coming in at just 1.3 by 0.9 by half an inch. It’s so small that it can sit easily on your key ring, you can slip it into the 5th pocket of your jeans, or even have it hanging off your cellphone. The Micro Charger is fully rechargeable, and is able to keep it’s charge for at least 1 month before needing to be recharged. Charge up the Fuel Micro Charger from the supplied cable or any AC micro-usb wall plug. Then just put it in your pocket, on your key chain or in your car and forget about it. To use it, just turn the power switch on and plug into your phone, the same as you would your charger. Your phone will start to recharge straight away. It can be yours if you pledge $22 or more and you’ll also get your name on the iPhone 5/Lightning connector.
