Why we made it
On average, we check our smartphones over 150 times a day for all sorts of things: talking, texting, social media, surfing the web, pictures/videos, gaming, and checking our bank accounts. Smartphone battery life has become a major problem for individuals that utilize their phones for the above reasons. Limitations in battery technology and the creation of power hungry apps are what give rise to the need for the XS powercardTM. Most people leave their home with two things: their phone and their wallet. Based on the cornerstones of portability, convenience, and elegance, XS powercardTM , a 2200 mAh portable charger, designed to fit in a wallet, making it hard to forget. It provides your phone with the juice it needs all throughout the day…conveniently. Its additional features such as data storage, data transfer, built-in cables, and single port charging eliminate the need to carry different gadgets/accessories.
Top and bottom views of the XS powercardTM exemplifying its fundamentals: Portability, Convenience and Elegance.
Measuring 82.5 mm in length, it is shorter than the length of a credit card (85.60mm), ensuring that it fits in the credit card slot of your wallet.
The device was created to optimize the utilization of space and provide you with a sleek and smart look, while delivering 2200 mAh battery capacity, built-in cables, data storage, and smart circuitry.
The XS powercardTM is designed to fit in the topmost credit card slot of your wallet, making it hard to forget. Since it is designed to fit in the topmost credit card slot of your wallet, it does not add any additional thickness (over 6.3 mm) to your wallet. It effectively utilizes the space above existing credit cards to maximize battery and data storage capacities, while adding no additional thickness to your wallet.
The device is equipped with an 8/16/32 GB detachable flash drive to facilitate easy data storage as well as sharing. Rather than having to give someone your XS powercardTM to share data, you can just give them the detachable flash drive.
The device can charge your smartphone either fast (less efficient) or more efficiently (standard charging rate). It also has a tri-colored LED indicator that indicates the battery status of the XS powercard.
Both USB and Micro USB/MFi Lightning Connector cables are embedded into the design of the device, eliminating the need to carry cables. The cables are strategically placed to circumvent any possibility of tangling.
Stretched to its full length, the device measures 14.3 inches or 1.19 ft., allowing for a convenient charge.
Single Port Smart Charging: When connected to a power source, the device prioritizes your smartphone and charges it to 100% first. On detecting your phone is at 100%, it starts charging itself to 100%. This feature works with wall adapters as well, so when you wake up in the morning, you have your smartphone and XS powercard each completely charged.
Since both cables are embedded into the device, it enables data transfer/ sync between your smartphone and PC.
In addition to a PC’s USB port, the XS powercardTM is compatible with wall adapters. You can charge the device and your smartphone through one power outlet.
The device is specifically designed to allow you to easily talk/text while charging your smartphone.
The Micro USB and MFi Lightning Connector tips are designed to fit with most phone cases. They are 100% compatible with official smartphone cases.
The USB tip of the device is equipped with fortified metal, making it robust and safe for daily use.
The XS powercardTM is available for both Micro USB and MFi Lightning Connector devices.
Colors, Specifications & Performance
Want to compare?
*6.3mm at the portion inserted into your wallet, 11.85 mm at the top. However, as seen in pictures on this campaign, the XS powercard is designed to fit in the topmost credit card slot of your wallet, with credit cards stacked in the bottom slots. Therefore, it adds only 6.3mm to your wallet’s thickness.
** Prices on crowd funding campaign (Indiegogo/Kickstarter), not taking into account bulk order discounts for the XS powercard. For a 20 pack order, the price of each XS powercard goes down to $32.5.Note: Image of the XS powercard is NOT graphically designed. This is the real pre-production prototype.
Limited Edition XS powercards

Where the funds will go
& what you can get
As with most startups, funding is crucial to XyraTM. With the help of family, we have got to the point of having our final pre-production prototypes tested and combat-ready.
However, there are still fixed/variable costs we need to incur soon in order to get the product to market and expand the business. Some of these include:
1) Product/cable/flash drive mold balances
2) Assembly equipment and process balances
3) Variable costs for components
4) Meeting minimum order quantities to drive down production costs
5) Hiring employees to speed up and optimize the process to better serve you
6) Marketing costs
Some of these costs, such as mold costs and assembly costs, are one-time fixed costs that we require to pay balances for on completion. Some are variable costs, which will help us deliver our product to you quicker.
This is where we need you to help us out: We need $50,000 to meet our fixed costs, hire efficient workers and place a minimum order quantity to reduce per unit costs. This will enable us to provide YOU with a better product at a better price…faster!
With this funding, we will also be able to advertise our product and cater to the needs of people who, in our opinion (and hopefully yours), are missing out.
For your supportive contributions we're offering several awesome perks.
Our perks give you the opportunity to purchase the XS powercardTM at almost unreal discount rates, going up to even 35% off future retail value. People who choose to wait until this campaign ends lose out on these discounts and limited edition offers. We did this because we want to exemplify how much we appreciate your support. It means a lot.
Goals & Stretch Goals
Timeline until delivery
What if we don't reach our goal?
For many of you who might be wondering, "What if they don't reach their goal? Where will my funds go?", we answer: they will all go into the production and delivery of your perks. The $50,000 pledge goal includes allocation of funds for expansion, such as hiring employees, marketing, meeting minimum order quantities to reduce costs, etc. If we do not reach our goal, we will forgo these expenses and put everything towards the production and delivery of your perks, even if it is at a higher production cost for us. You are our number one priority and your satisfaction is paramount. The total funds raised if we do not reach our goal will be allocated to creating a quality product for our Indiegogo backers. If you have contributed and selected a perk, you will receive it.
Can't contribute? You can still help!
We completely understand that some of you are just not able to contribute, even if you want to. However, you can still help us out. Here's how:
- Get the word out and make some noise about our campaign!
- Use your Facebook status updates, Tweets, Instagram, etc. to create awareness
- You can use Indiegogo's share tools to spread the word
That's all there is to it! This would really give us the boost we need while also making people's lives more convenient and less cumbersome. After all, that's what we're here to do. Thank you!
How do I choose what color/version I want for
my XS powercard?
Once our Indiegogo campaign ends, each of our backers who selected perks of $34 or more, will receive a survey asking them what color they would like to receive of their version of the XS powercard. Backers that did not choose the Limited Edition Perks for $45 will get to pick between the colors BLACK and WHITE for their XS powercard(s). Note: if you purchased a perk that included multiple XS powercards, you will get to choose your color for each of them. Backers that purchased the Limited Edition Perk for $45 will have the choice between BLUE and PINK for their XS powercard (as shown in pictures). For perks $146 and greater, you will receive a survey asking you for your choice of versions (Micro USB/Lightning) and colors (Black/White) for each of your XS powercards.
International Shipping outside of India
for single and multiple units
Please make sure you add $10 for international shipping if you are shipping your order outside of India. A total amount of $10 is required irrespective of how many units you are ordering. Hence, if you order one XS powercard or order a pack of 10 XS powercards, your shipping cost totals $10. This can be done by first selecting your perk, and then adding $10 to the “How much would you like to contribute?” amount.
If you forget to do this, we have added a perk “FORGOT INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING?” for $10 which you can select and contribute the $10 for international shipping.
- Shipping costs for multiple orders with the same shipping address.
If you're placing more than one order, for example, if you want to purchase a Limited Edition XS powercard as well as an Early Bird Edition, select the Limited Edition perk first. Enter your email and shipping address. Your contribution amount for this perk should be $45 + $10 (shipping cost). Once you have contributed, go back to the campaign page and select the Early Bird Edition perk. Enter the SAME email and shipping address as you did for the Limited Edition perk. Your contribution for the Early Bird Edition should be $34. You do not have to add the $10 shipping amount since you are shipping to the same location.
Your total would = $45 + $34 + $10 = $89.
What do you mean by discount % off
future retail price?
We provide only our Indiegogo backers with 22%-35% discounts you see through our perks (depending on the size of your order). Once this campaign ends, this product will retail for $49.99.
