Devotec Industries is launching a new product on Kickstarter. This might be the world’s smallest emergency phone charging device. It’s designed to be carried on a key ring, and everything needed to top up a phone is crammed inside a space smaller than the keys themselves.It is 1.3-inches tall, 0.9-inches wide and 0.5-inches thick (33 x 22 x 12 mm). The device is made with die cast aluminum and weighs around half an ounce (about 14 g). Most of the interior is taken up by its 220 mAh lithium-ion battery.This gives 20-30 minutes of additional talk time, and up to a couple hours of standby time, depending on the phone.
The Fuel charger features a standard micro-USB port.But this will not work for iPhone devices. Devotec may release a version with an iPhone 5/Lightning connector at some point in the near future.The comes with a power switch designed to keep it from discharging needlessly. Three LED’s denotes the current status like charging, fully charged.Fuel has blown past its US$20,000 . The minimum pledge to grab a Fuel charger is $20, and there’s a little over two weeks left in the funding period. Devotec Industries expects to deliver the devices to backers in July of this year.
