BiteMyApple.co, which specializes in offering successful Kickstarter projects for Apple devices, is now selling the tiny accessory.
Measuring in at 0.1 inches thick, or about the same size as a credit card, the ChargeCard can easily be placed in a wallet or even underneath many iPhone cases.
You can use any USB port to charge an iPhone, iPad, or other iOS device. To use the ChargeCard, flip open the foldable cable and plug it into an open USB port. The other end attaches to an iOS device. It can even be used with bulkier iPhone cases.
The ChargeCard is compatible with all older 30-pin iOS devices can be purchased directly from BiteMyApple.co for $24.99.
A micro-USB version will be available in March. A Lightning-enabled card, compatible with the iPhone 5 and other newer iOS devices, will ship sometime in May. Both are also $24.99 and can be ordered now as well.
While it definitely looks like a great option for users who always need a charging cable at hand, I think I’ll wait to snag a Lightning-enabled version.
I’m also happy to see a site like BiteMyApple.co pop up and give users who missed out on Kickstarter projects a chance to purchase the accessory after its introduction.
