Sometimes it can feel like a juggling act trying to keep our smartphones charged throughout the day while we’re out of the house. Traditional power banks and other new chargers can get cumbersome, but now you can save time and space with a new system called FingerPow. It’s currently being funded on Kickstarter where it has already raised almost $100,000 smashing its original goal of $20,000.
With FingerPow you won’t have to worry about getting low-battery notifications. Also, you don’t have to be chained to the wall waiting for your phone to charge. Of course there are power banks out now that can keep you powered up all day long, but at the cost of lugging around those often heavy, bulky devices. So what is FingerPow exactly and how can it help me? Well, it’s basically this tiny wireless device that keeps your phone juiced up while you’re away from your charger. You can use these tiny packs to keep charged all the time with very little effort. That’s right, no more searching for wall outlets or carrying bulky power banks around with you.
The concept behind Finger Pow is storing electricity in small modular pieces or charging packs. When you need to charge your phone you’ll just grab a charging pack and go. Each pack is compact and let’s you continue using your phone like always. Plus, you don’t have to carry traditional bulky portable chargers or USB cables. You don’t need to worry about battery life when you take long conference calls, use GPS or even playing your favorite games. Use it to charge your phone and provide additional battery life when you need it the most. The packs have high-capacity lithium batteries with a high-quality chipset. This provides a “85% boost to conversion efficiency.” So basically, this tiny lightweight battery provides an iPhone 8 with up to 25% charge.
Finger Pow is an extremely convenient portable power bank you can take anywhere. Unlike wall sockets or other portable chargers, Finger Pow simplifies the entire charging process. It changes how we charge our phones and other devices by making charging more accessible and convenient. With Finger Pow, low-battery notifications will be a thing of the past.
If you would like your own set of FingerPow chargers, you can pledge $40 or more on its Kickstarter campaign site. That’s $29 off the expected retail value and the lowest they’re currently offering it for. The basic starter pack includes 4 charging packs, 2 magnetic adapters (lighting/micro-USB/USB-C), magnetic charging cable, and the charging base. If all goes as planned for FingerPow shipping to backers is estimated for April of 2018.
