GOkey color preference to be asked at end of the campaign

Cables are messy, 

batteries are bulky, you forget to charge them

you don't always carry them with you and

 your phone drains out of battery when you need it.

GOkey can charge itself and your phone on the go with its battery backup and USB charging cable built in. Life on the GO is changed forever!

GOkey's battery will keep you going for up to 2 hours. In most situations, that is enough time to get you somewhere to fully charge your phone.

When GOkey charges your phone, its LED light is orange and it turns green when it is done charging. If the battery is bellow 20% it goes red.

You always carry keys, phone, wallet, right? By being small enough for your key-ring, GOkey always stays with you.

Plug it in and resume whatever it was you were doing.

Want to check if your GOkey has enough juice. Shake it 3 times and its light will go green, orange or red depending on its energy level.

GOkey is a portable handy USB cable. 

GOkey's battery will charge itself after your phone has been charged. That way, the more you use it as a cable, the better it is.

You can use it to sync your phone with your computer as well.

First and foremost, we wanted to create a simple and beautiful device that solves your charging needs. GOkey gives you some juice when you need it and is practical enough to use as an everyday USB charging and syncing cable. 

But we didn't stop there.  We wanted to make this device smart and connected. A truly worthy key-ring companion.

GOkey connects with the phone through bluetooth, with a radius of up to 100 feet.

FIND YOUR KEYS: When you misplace your keys, the phone app will display the signal strength from GOkey. The signal will get stronger as you get closer. Once you get close enough to your keys, press the button in the app and make GOkey ring, so you can find them.

FIND YOUR PHONE: We usually forget where we left our phone. After all, that is the device we carry around and use the most. GOkey is connected to it. With a click of its button, the phone will ring so you can find it.

GOkey App remembers the last location of your keys.


Use GOkey's button to perform actions on native apps that are active on the foreground. Snap a picture or capture video, change slides in a presentation, play, pause or skip songs and video and answer or reject an incoming call.

When you plug GOkey to a laptop its battery will start charging. Press its button and a little icon will appear on your Mac or your PC. It is the GOkey flash drive. 

Click it and drag in and out, music, videos, photos and files. You can select between 8GB, 16GB and 32GB.

You should be able to secure the data that is private to you. That's why we made a  safe area in GOkey's memory accessible with a password. A 128bit encryption is used for maximum security.


We didn't take GOkey to indiegogo just to raise funds. We value the power of early adaptors in best determining the direction this device is heading.

We gathered your suggestions and did a poll with the most popular features.

On the poll it was all of you that shaped the stretch goals. 

Bringing such an awesome device to life is exciting! Share your ideas with us  and help shape its final version. Your contribution has magnitude!


There are 2 things in common to all individuals bellow: 

  • They are all exceptional in what they do.
  • They joined, because they believe it and really like it.

A big thank you to all those who invested their time and skills to making it a reality.


When will I get to choose the color and model of my GOkey? 

Following the end of the project, backers will be contacted to confirm color choices, and  select between whether they would like the MicroUSB or Lightning version. 

Am I supposed to manually add shipping if I'm not in the US?

Yes, you have to add shipping on top of your selected perk. When you pledge, manually add an additional $10 to the price of the perk you want. We will do the matching at the end of the campaign.

Help! What do I do if I forget to pay for shipping?

No problem. Click the contribute now button at the top of the page and manually enter $10. It will be added to your pledge amount. Enter the same personal information you did on your initial order. We will do the matching ourselves at the end of the campaign.

When are you going to be shipping my GOkey? 

Indiegogo isn't like Amazon or any other online store. When you contribute to GOkey you are funding all of our engineering, software, manufacturing and shipping. Everything that is needed to make a real product.

Estimated national and international shipping is Q3 2015

I asked for my perk to be sent to the wrong address! What do I do?

We will be contacting all our contributors 8 weeks before expected shipping about their product choice. When we do, please respond and let us know the correct address where you would like your GOkeys shipped.

What are the risks and challenges in making GOkey?

At this stage we foresee the Made for iPhone (MFi) compliance testing as being a hurdle. GOkey combines a battery and a sync product that makes things challenging. We partnered with a very experienced  MFi certified developer in Silicon Valley and a world-leading manufacturer of MFi products to reduce those risks and pass the certification.

How do I know that you will deliver?

The funds we are raising strengthen our position. Not only can we deliver now, but we can afford top notch engineers, advanced R&D, rigorous testing,  better materials, and exciting new features. Our best effort will go in making  GOkey in time and making it the best it can be.

Will GOkey give my phone a charge that will make it last for up to 2 hours?

2 hours for regular use on an iPhone 5S. If your phone has a bigger battery, or if you are watching videos for example, that will be less. 

What is the battery size of GOkey?

GOkey has a small size battery. Around 400 mAh. It is meant to be used as an emergency supply to keep you going for an hour or two. Once you get to a USB port, you can use GOkey to fully charge your phone.

Why didn't you put a bigger battery like other back ups?

We want GOkey to give a substantial phone battery boost and yet be unobtrusive on your keychain. The ideal balance is the goal.

Will you make an app for Windows phones?

Yes, we will make separate apps for iPhones, Android and Windows phones

Will GOkey make my phone ring if it is on silent?

No, phone API's won't allow that.

Will GOkey work with my iPhone 4S?

We've build GOkey with the new slim lightning port, but you can use a lightning to 30pin adapter if you have an iPhone 4S.

What is the range of the Bluetooth?

Bluetooth range is typically around 100 feet and it can reach up to 200 feet when it is in line of sight.

What is GOkey made of?

GOkey has a durable metallic enclosure and we use high quality plastic for the other parts.

How long will the battery last?

If you don't use it to power your phone the battery will last for weeks.

Will I be notified if my battery is running low?

GOkey shares its battery level with the phone. It can let you know.

Will GOkey work with my iPhone case?

We know how annoying it can be to have to remove your case, just to plug in your phone, so we kept the port small to fit with all cases.

Is GOkey waterproof?

GOkey is splashproof 

Who did your video?

Ben Ferrer was our cinematographer and editor and Carlos Weaver did the motion graphics. Our actors were Becca Goebel and Peter Oren, Recordings where done at Voice One Studios and  location shootings where at Hub Impact Bay Area and the Producers Loft.

Is GOKey compatible with the new iPhone 6 and 6 plus? 

It sure is!

Help! What do I do if I forget to pay for shipping?

Please use the international shipping perk to add your required shipping amount as soon as possible.Failure to do so could lead to delays in delivering your product.

What if i have changed shipping address since i backed your project and i need it amended?

No problem,when the survey arrives you will be able to amend and verify the shipping address then.

How can i choose the color,connector size etc?

When the survey arrives you will be able to do it then.

When will my GOkey be shipped?

Delays are expected due to the complexity of such a project. This is very common with crowdfunding. Expected shipping time means expected/ballpark/estimate and not a guarantee that it will ship then.We are a small company working hard to deliver a premium product and want to make it right. We cannot foresee any delays and these are beyond our control.We value your patience and cannot wait to get GOkey into your hands.

Will I have to pay any customs duty if it enters my country?

If customs seize GOKey,GO Designs will not be held responsible for an additional cost of taxations that may occur entering your country. These are the responsibility of you to pay.

When will i see updates received from you?

Updates on how the project is progressing will be done on a monthly basis on Indiegogo and across our social platforms. You should receive this update via email too.If not please check your spam folder.Please keep an eye on the comments field of the campaign where alot of questions you are looking for have been answered already.
