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 andyour 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, play, pause or skip songs and reject an incoming call.
When you plug GOkey to a laptop its battery will start charging.
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.

What are the risks and challenges in making GOkey?
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 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.

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 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.

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.
