Briefly: iPhone 5 ‘ChargeCards’ Set To Enter Full Production Mid-June


Confirming what many who had originally backed the project have been waiting to hear for quite a while, the team behind ChargeCard for iPhone have this weekend confirmed that the ‘Lightning’ version of the portable charging accessory designed specifically for Apple’s iPhone 5, is currently set to enter full “mass-production” sometime towards the middle of this month.

Citing that the company has successfully completed the “tooling” stage required to ensure the chosen moulds for the product’s manufacture are suitable, the project’s co-founders – Noah Dentzel and Adam Miller – noted that, (over the next two weeks), their job will be to begin “testing, tweaking and refining the manufacturing process,” before entering full mass-production with ‘ChargeCard for iPhone 5,’ in mid-June.

Dubbed the “slimmest charging and data cable for iPhone” – (and thin enough to fit easily into your wallet, purse or pocket) – for those yet to hear about ChargeCard, the product aims to provide supreme convenience and portability to those who are fed-up of lugging their iPhone’s ‘lightning’ cable around with them wherever they go, instead providing the user with a simple “flip” cable moulded in the shape of a business card, which will essentially charge most iPhone models from zero-to-full, using any standard USB port.

News that the company is well on track to start producing the product for iPhone 5 in the ‘coming weeks,’ arrives alongside the latest update to the (now funded) Kickstarter project also confirming that, as of last week, all ‘Micro USB’ ChargeCard units have been shipped to all those who were waiting.

Keep up with the progress of ‘ChargeCard,’ on Kickstarter.
