In a near future, lugging around large smartphone battery chargers may be a thing of the past. The cool thing is that the solution isn’t that insanely hard to imagine either, yet it’s incredibly genius. The solution is elegant and it can be hauled around in your pocket. This incredibly genius idea comes from concept designer Tsung Chih-Hsien who presented the Mini Power portable smartphone battery chargers at the 2014 Red Dot Awards and won.
The Mini Power portable chargers could be described as a paper battery technology put into small USB flash drives. If you have ever bought a USB Bluetooth stick you know they are literally as small as a thumbnail. The Mini Power chargers are as small and would come in sizes of 2 hours, 4 hours and 6 hours worth of battery power. That’s what I call portable smartphone battery chargers!
The usefulness of these pocket-sized chargers is virtually unprecedented. Depending on the time you expect to be out, you simply pick the one that will serve you the best without it having to be lugged around in a backpack. Just put it in your pocket and be on your merry way. It’s literally as simple as that.
Whether these incredibly useful Mini Power portable smartphone chargers will ever be realized is hard to say, however, now when people know about them and perhaps get insanely excited about them, the chance of realization is increased immensely.
It’s hard to say what each of them would cost, but they would probably be way cheaper than most portable smartphone chargers on the market today. The technology is definitely there and it all boils down to technical know-how and the funding. Perhaps a Kickstarter would be a good idea at this stage. We here at Bit Rebels will be following the development of this gadget closely and report back to you as soon as we have more information. In the meantime, have a gander at the awesome portable Lightsaber Smartphone Battery Charger and marvel at the geekiness it presents.
