Real life situation: Your phone is running out of battery.
No problem, just charge it.
Forgot the cable? Well then you have a problem.
Introducing Popcord, the charger that accompanies you everywhere.
No bulky external battery pack, no big wall socket charger. Just a simple cord that plugs into the next available usb port and is small enough for you to use as a keychain.
Here is the thing most people don’t know about modern batteries:
- Emptying the battery and then charging it is bad.
- Topping the battery throughout the day is good.
This is where Popcord comes in handy, it just sits on your keychain and when you can top up your phone you just go for it, it’s really quick and easy.
Designers Frank and Matt didn’t like the options available before, bulky portable batteries, cables you forget at home and so on. It ended with them going to the drawing board to find a permanent solution. Something smart, cool and flexible. It ended with Popcord and they decided to make it out of cast zinc for the body and high-quality soft plastic for the cord. It’s tough and good looking at the same time.
Right now you can help them fund this idea through Kickstarter and grab yourself one of these with discount at the same time.
Popcord is available for Android, iPhone, Windows phone and Blackberry.
