With all these crazy endeavors and new products in technology, one thing seems to be lacking any updates: battery life. I often find myself with a dead phone while out visiting friends or coming home from a late night in the downtown core. My battery hardships cries weren't going unheard, as a friend recommended i try a portable mobile charger from Jackery as a battery backup. Jackery is a Santa Clara, California-based technology company focused on developing premium battery products for smartphones and tablets. A few months ago, we reviewed both of Jackery's current portable options: Jackery Bar & Jackery Mini. Newshutr and I explained several aspects where we thought Jackery could improve their offerings, one of them being size and portability of the device. Lo and behold, we weren't the only ones who thought thinner is better!
Earlier this week, Jackery gave us a glimpse of their new premium product offering, the Jackery Air. Touted as the world's thinnest premium portable mobile charger, this bad boy is no thicker than your Z10 or Q10! They'll be available in both 2800mAh and 5000mAh options.
Jackery is launching a Kickstater campaign to assist with with production of Jackery Air. Keep an eye out for the Air to be available for purchase later this summer, or get your hands on one much quicker by funding them via KickStarter.
Jackery Air Thin Profile Rechargeable Battery for Mobile Devices
Company Raising Funds to Enable Expensive Production Processes –
Jackery Air Features Well-Designed and Durable Aluminum Case
Santa Clara, CA— Jackery, a provider of premium rechargeable battery products for mobile devices, announced today the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to enable the company to put into production the Jackery Air. The product has an ultra-thin design and high-capacity battery cell which both require a customized and costly manufacturing setup. Jackery is using the Kickstarter funds to initiate the large-scale manufacture of its final Jackery Air prototype.
The Jackery Air is the world’s thinnest portable rechargeable battery for mobile devices. It is similar in size to the leading smartphones and provides users with up to five days of extra operational time. It features Jackery’s power lock technology which enables the product to retain its charging capabilities for up to six months when not in use. A multi-platform capable charger, the Jackery Air can charge iOS, Android and Windows phone devices as well as tablets, multiple gaming devices and MP3 players. Two versions of the product will be produced including a 2800mAh version and a 5000mAh version. Both measure 4.9 x 4.0 inches in size, are only .3 inches in thickness and weigh 5.5 ounces or less.
“We are pleased to launch this Kickstarter campaign and are confident we’ll reach our $30,000 goal quickly because Jackery Air is simply a great product that is ideal for today’s mobile users,” said Julie Wang, Chief Operating Officer of Jackery. “Without these initial funds from Kickstarter backers, we won’t be able to cover the customized manufacturing which is essential to the Jackery Air’s small footprint and leading performance. This product is a real game changer for the industry because it offers users an extremely portable charging option that matches or exceeds the design aesthetics of their own devices.”
Kickstarter backers of $49 or more will receive a 2800 mAh model Jackery Air along with a
Hi-Speed Micro USB to USB 2.0 cable and the convenience of free shipping to U.S. destinations. Additional benefits such as the 5000 mAh model, car chargers, and additional USB cables are available at different donation levels. Kickstarter backers of $259 or more will receive one Jackery Air (2800 mAh) portable mobile charger, one Jackery Air (5000 mAh) portable mobile charger , plus one set of current Jackery products (Giant, Bar, & Mini), a five Hi-Speed Micro USB to USB 2.0 cables, two premium car chargers, and an honorable mention on Jackery’s websites, Facebook and Twitter.
