Wireless headphones have become more of the expectation than the exception lately. With advancements in Bluetooth capabilities and Apple Watch support for storing music, cutting the headphone cord is easier than ever. While wireless often means greater freedom, one of the challenges is managing battery life. Even the top brands in this category struggle to get more than eight hours of listening time.

One of the more intriguing solutions to this problem is leveraging the power of your device to charge your headphones. There has been some movement with this idea from JBL and others but it’s a largely untested idea. A new Kickstarter campaign has set out to bring a new pair of earbuds to market that use both Lightning and microUSB ports to recharge on-the-go. Judging by the amount of money pledged, there is some serious interest from consumers as well.

We have all certainly experienced this dreadful feeling at some point: accidentally catching your iPhone or Android’s charging cord with your foot, sending your device helplessly spinning across the room until it strikes the floor. Apple has long had MagSafe technology as a part of its laptop power supplies, although it may be on its way out, but it has yet to find its way to iPhone or iPad. The same is true of Android devices, we’ve come so far and yet our phones are easily turned into sling shots with an accidental trip of the cord.

Enter ZNAPS. A new Kickstarter project that is bringing the same concept of MagSafe to any Lightning or microUSB charging cable. Based on the response from the Kickstarter community thus far, there are a lot of users that desire this type of connectivity.  expand full story
