Now this is definitely not something that you see every single day – a charging cable that comes with its very own integrated battery? That sounds right out of this world, and at the same time, many folks might wonder how come they have never thought of coming up with this particular idea before, considering the amount of sense that it makes. The folks over at BiteMyApple.co have just announced the availability of JUMP, where JUMP happens to be a charging cable that has a built-in 800mAh battery which will not only charge your smartphone, but syncs with it as well.
Native Union have specially designed this particular tiny, lightweight charger in order to have it provide your smartphone with an extra boost, and not only that, it also does away with the need for JUMP’s owner to juice up the device.
Chris Johnson, Founder of BiteMyApple.co, has this to say about JUMP, “Consumers have a lot of issues with current power products on the market. Battery cases can be too bulky, charging cables often tangle, and power banks are a hassle to carry around. That’s why the JUMP is a perfect solution for an extra three hours of additional talk time.”
Considering how JUMP tips the scales at less than a couple of AA batteries, you know for sure that road warriors as well as frequent travelers would not mind bringing JUMP about with them wherever they go, be it on a business trip, a vacation, or simply to run errands. This particularly compact cable will be able to fit easily in the coin pocket or behind the phone even as you continue to make phone calls, thanks to its precision-engineered channels which will securely fasten the cables.
It will sport cables that were designed from hard-wearing resistant nylon to deliver durable and long-lasting usage, while JUMP’s thermoplastic blend of PC and ABS ensures strength and longevity. Expect this tangle-free nylon cable to serve you for years on end, and interested parties can pick JUMP up for $ 49.99 a pop.
It goes without saying that most of us own a plethora of wall chargers these days – there is no escaping from that fact, considering the number of portable devices that are in our possession. After all, there is one for the smartphone, another for the tablet, oh yeah, how about the notebook? Do not forget about the GPS as well if you are about to venture into unfamiliar territory! Having said that, it would be nice if the chargers that we own at the moment would be able to come in smaller form factors, but this is not the case all the time, although some manufacturers have already done their part to make sure that they squeeze down and miniaturize as much as possible. The superCUBE from Scosche has just been announced, where it claims to be the smallest universal 12W (2.1A) USB wall charger on the market.
The Scosche superCUBE is touted to be 40% smaller compared to the other 12W chargers in the market, and there is also the superCUBE flip that is a wee bit larger, where it features flush folding prongs. Regardless of which particular superCUBE model that you decide to pick up, they will both be iOS and Android compatible, making use of intelligent charging circuitry in order to juice up USB powered devices at the fastest rate possible, without being affected by the make or model, now how about that?
These are true blue clever wall chargers that can immediately recognize the draw and supply the necessary power accordingly, doing all the thinking while epitomizing the drawing power of it being a ‘plug and play’ mobile accessory. Since the Scosche superCUBE is so small, it takes up very little space when plugged in, which would provide easy access to other outlet ports, in addition to making them an ideal travel partner. Both the Scosche superCUBE and superCUBE Flip will retail for $ 19.99 a pop if you are interested.
