I’m a bit compulsive when it comes to my phone’s battery life. Since I don’t own a camera or an iPod, I rely on my smartphone pretty much 24/7. When the battery drops down to 50%, I’m a wreck. Judging by my battery OCD, you would think that I have no trouble remembering to charge my Smartphone, right? Alas this isn’t the case at all.
The bottom line: I’m not the only one. In fact, I’m pretty sure you’re familiar with the above-mentioned scenario. Awesomely enough, there’s a universal cure for this vexing problem.
Behold JUMP, the world’s first 2-in-1 cable and battery solution that’s going to impress you greatly.
Why it Rocks
“Enough juice to make it through dinner and home before you run out,” so says a reviewer from The Wall Street Journal.
JUMP weighs less than two AA batteries with 800mAh in its compact form and it’s small enough to hold it behind your phone. The everyday charger is packed with AutoCharge™, a circuit prioritization system that notices when the battery inside your phone is full, and automatically redirects the power to charge the batteries inside JUMP.
Not only is it a 48cm charging cable that supports high-speed data transfer, but it also allows you to sync your music, data and media. Best of all, it works with all smartphones. Check out the image below for the full benefits!
The Team Behind JUMP
United States-based Native Union is no stranger to creating revolutionary lifestyle brands. They weren’t kidding when they said that they have a track record of creating, designing and producing innovative and thoughtful products.
Back in 2013, the company launched SWITCH, a 3-in-1 wireless portable speaker, conference call device and mobile phone charger. It was a huge success and went on to win scores of accolades and awards.
February 2014 marks another milestone achieved for Native Union; JUMP was successfully funded on Kickstarter with over 6,000 backers and it surpassed its $40,000 goal. Make a wild guess how much they received.
Act Fast to Get JUMP
The reason being, it’s less than a week away. If you recall, we previously did a post on Haystakt, a Singapore startup that lets you order creative goods at crowd-determined prices. The Good News: Native Union is joining forces with them to bring JUMP to our sunny shores!
There are a couple special perks for backers. For instance, you get to enjoy early bonus savings of up to $10 if you can get more people to order after you. How’s that for a 2-in-1 charging cable that’s loaded with cool features?
However, the project will not go through until it hits a minimum of 96 orders (there are currently 34 orders). That said, if you’d like to own a JUMP cable, better act fast and do some massive Facebook sharing today!
