Yep, you heard it correct. The World's Smallest Portable Power Outlet is now available for purchase on ChargeTech.com or purchase through the IndieGoGo campaign and receive the stretch goal bonuses.
Charge Anything, Anywhere.
Have you ever wished you could take the wall outlet on the go?
ChargeTech lets you power anything, anywhere:
Yep, you read that right, curling irons!
It's so small and compact you can literally put it in your pocket, your purse or your backpack.
The Problem: Look Familiar?
With our on the go lives and reliance on our portable electronic devices, you can nearly be certain, you will never have enough juice or find a power outlet.
At a cafe
At the airport
During an emergency
The Solution: World's Smallest Portable Power Outlet
Wherever you go, so should your portable power outlet.
Stay connected and stay powered up in all of your daily activities. Give all your devices that extra emergency jump start to keep going throughout the day.
Portable for on the go!
We designed the battery to be lightweight and convenient to bring around.
It is fully mobile and will fit in your backpack, purse, and even in most pockets.
With ChargeTech, you will have power within arms reach wherever you are!
It's just like those bulky portable power supply generators or the outdoor generators you find at hardware stores, except it fits in your pocket.
Compact, Yet Powerful
In terms of size, it's almost comparable to that of an iPhone.
ChargeTech contains enough power to charge your phone for an entire week or fully charge your laptop multiple times.
The Perfect MixNOTHING compares to the portability and power of ChargeTech.
Gigantic Powerful Generators - Perfect when the power goes out, but not practical to carry around.
- Portable Lipstick Charger - Only work with your phone, not powerful enough to work with your laptop computer or anything else that requires an electrical outlet.
ChargeTech, it's the perfect blend of size and power.
Available In Two Sizes
Choose your size: The PPO small (12000 mah) or the PPO large (18000 mah)
Both units uses AC power for your household appliances, and DC power for your 12V electronics.
We wanted more power, but less bulk.
Most products fail in execution because the engineers/designers fail to realize the technological hurdles they will need to overcome during production. We worked closely with our manufacturing partners.
That's why we made sure we partnered with a manufacturer that understood our most important wants and features.
We worked with our engineers to design an IC board that combines both the electrical outlet and USB port component. This was the biggest puzzle, a configuration that would work physically as well as aesthetically for the exterior design and overall layout for the lithium ion cells. In the end, we created something amazing.
What Can you Charge?
Or should we say, what can't you charge? Any electrical wall outlet device under 85 watts.
Check the manufacturer's specifications for more information. If you are using a device with a variable setting, use the lowest for your safety.
Field tests were conducted with different household products under the recommended 85 watts limit. The actual results may vary.
There are limitations:
The 18,000mAh (large) ChargeTech can power devices up to 85w and the 12,000mAh (small) ChargeTech can power devices up to 65w. It is not possible to use high power demanding electronics. An internal safety fuse will cut the power and shut off your energy pack if done so.
We embedded this safety feature to protect someone from getting hurt. After the safety cut-off has been triggered, simply recharge the device again to resume operation.
**Actual charge and run times will vary. Divide 12000 mah or 18000 mah for an approximate number of charges you can expect from a fully charged small or large ChargeTech.
We Need Your Help
Developing cutting edge technology isn't easy, and it's also very costly/time intensive. With your support, we can finally hit mass production and meet the factory's minimum order quantities. We choose our manufacturing partner based on their long track record of producing high quality portable battery chargers.
Current Progress: We already have fully functional versions of both the portable and powerful from our manufacturer overseas. The overall build is excellent and identical to what would be the mass produced version.
Manufacturing Production Plan: A large cash outlay is always required to start production. Plastic molds, high quality battery cells and circuit boards need to be purchased upfront. With the support of the Indiegogo community, we can finalize our designs and start manufacturing.
The Final Product: A portable and powerful battery pack with an AC wall plug outlet. Power in the palm of your hands.
What devices are supported? Can it charge anything?
Like we stated above, the battery pack can charge any phone plugged into it via USB. In terms of the AC outlet, the small pack can support up to 12000 mAh and the large pack can support up to 18000 mAh max. Anything above the max capacity will trigger a safety mode where your pack will shut down. Recharging will then be required to reuse the battery pack again.
How long can this device charge for?
It really depends on how much power your devices use. When comparing the 12K to the 18K, the 18K can provide about 50% more charging power than the 12K.
Do not drop, or place heavy weights on top of the battery.
Never try to open the battery case or make your own repairs.
Do not expose to rain or moisture.
Keep away from moisture and humidity.
Do not expose the battery to high temperatures.
Do not charge the battery with anything but the recommend AC wall charger.
Risks and challengesOne of the biggest challenges is the manufacturing process. Quality control will be at the top of the list and most important issue. There are many reasons why the manufacturer's cooperation will not be easy. We understand that Indiegogo backers want their product as soon as possible, but we are limited by factory's capabilities. In our experience, most pre-production samples still have a slight variation from the final mass produced unit.
