There are a lot of battery packs and external chargers available in the market, but today, we came across an interesting external charger which is quite different from the ones available in the market. It’s called Lithiumcard, an external battery pack with hypercharging technology, and is as small as a credit card albeit thicker so you can carry it in your wallet or your pocket with ease.
Lithiumcard features HyperFET drive technology that delivers 2 amps of power, resulting in faster charging. The company touts it will charge, thanks to the HyperFET technology, the smartphone’s battery by an increase of 1 percent per minute. This means that if you plug-in your device to Lithiumcard for 15 minutes, you can expect to get at least 15 percent charge out of it, impressive isn’t it?
Furthermore, it comes with support for multiple mobile devices, including iOS and Android, with separate cables that can be tucked in nicely inside the Lithiumcard. It comes with a flip-out USB for recharging and either a micro-USB, or Apple Lightning connector, for charging most popular mobile devices.
One of the most interesting features is the simultaneous charging. Thanks to its unique bypass charging system, users can charge both the smartphone and the Lithiumcard simultaneously, provided it’s connected to an external power source.
The company has taken the project to Indiegogo where they are seeking funds to make sure the product enters development, which will end on April 6, 2014. Surprisingly, the project has raised $50,000 in just a few days with 33 more days to go before the campaign ends. If you’re interested a $35 will help you get your hands on the Lithiumcard — the pledge can go as high as $10,000.
Once additional funding goals are met, it will introduce more features such as NanoStik technology, which keeps the Lithiumcard attached to the device while charging, without using any adhesive.
The Lithiumcard will be available for Indiegogo contributors in silver, titanium, and gold colors, with an expected shipping in May, 2014. It will then hit retail with an expected price tag of $39.99-49.99.
