Forget your old power bank that’s almost as big as your phone. When FingerPow hits the market, you won’t miss it. One Finger Pow is the size of a pen drive, so it fits right into your pocket. And it holds enough juice to top up an iPhone 8.
Besides the tiny size, what else is special about this phone charger? Read on, and you’ll see.
Innovative features of a smart charger
Let’s see why the FingerPow is doing well on Kickstarter. Here are the principal features that caused excitement when they announced their product.
Wireless charging, no cable needed
One of the biggest problems with carrying around a power bank is dealing with the cable. But that’s not the case with the FingerPow. It clicks into place to charge your phone with a magnetic connector. The same is true when you go to recharge the battery pack. Some people even call it the snaps charger because of the click you hear when you connect it.
The magnetic design means there is no need to carry around a USB cable. All you need is one of the magnetic adapters. They come in three flavors: Apple Lightning, USB-C, and the traditional Micro USB. So technically, your phone charging is wireless with the FingerPow.
Portable charging like never before
Each pen drive-sized segment of the FingerPow contains 25% of the charge you need to refill your smartphone’s battery. With four of the charging packs, you can restore your phone to 100%. But how often do you need to refill the battery completely during the day?
Most likely, you only need to top it off after using your GPS or watching a video. So just carry one FingerPow on your keychain, and you’re prepared. You can leave the other three at home at the charging station.
High-capacity and long life
The designers wanted to create a power bank worth the investment. It wasn’t just the convenience of wireless charging or the easy portability that mattered. It was also the lifetime of the charger.
Each FingerPow charging pack contains high-capacity lithium-ion batteries with lithium cobalt oxide cathodes. Then the chipset comes from a tech company called Neusoft. This combination of materials means that a minuscule pack like this has a lot of power for its size.
And each charging pack is waterproof in case you get caught in the rain. Plus, you can continue to use your phone while it’s recharging—it won’t overheat.
The charge station is a power bank, too
It’s true; even the charging station is a 5000mAh power bank. And each pack is 600mAh. With that said, here’s what you can get from a single FingerPow charging pack:
- 1 hour of playing games
- 2 hours of watching videos or browsing the Internet
- 4 hours of talking on the phone
With the addition of the base station, you can top off an iPad. You’re not going to need another phone charger for a long time. In fact, FingerPow says their packs retain 80% of their capacity even after 500 cycles.
Until we can charge our phones with the sun or the air, the FingerPow is the next best thing. You can get a closer look at it in this video. As far as we’re concerned, it can’t ship soon enough.
