Smartphones are pretty good at rescuing you from most problems, but when they run out of juice, you have to rescue them with a charging cable…which I never remember to take. The Chargecard wants to solve this by fitting that cable into your wallet. Now, you can get one for 20% off.
Basically, the Chargecard is a USB to Lightning (Micro USB in the Android version) cable that is shaped like a credit card when folded up. In use, the USB end flexes out from the middle of the card to meet the power-giving port, while the smaller Lightning end stays rigid to provide good durability. And, of course, the Chargecard is pretty handy for moving data. The Chargecard currently has 21% off, making it $24.99:
Here are the Chargecard's best bits…
- The world's thinnest USB phone cable
- The thickness of 2.5 credit cards (0.1" thick)
- Always have a cable on you, slide it nicely into your wallet
- Charge and sync your Lightning devices
And Lifehacker's verdict…
"The size and shape, and the fact that it fits anywhere without needing to be coiled/uncoiled or being a pain to carry, make it a pretty useful tool." – Alan Henry, Lifehacker
Stuff to note: the Apple version of the Chargecard charges devices with an 8-pin Lightning port (iPhone 5/5S/5C, newer-gen iPad & iPod Touch), but the Micro USB version is also available (Android). This deal is Continental US only:
