There’s a new Kickstarter campaign in town. Of course that seems to happen every two seconds, but this one caught my eye.

It’s for the Megalo Mini phone charger.

Looking to charge your phone on the go? If you’re like me and the bulk of the battery pack-style phone cases doesn’t appeal to you, a separate charger is needed. A charger like the Megalo Mini.

I love how the Megalo Mini’s charging cables fit into the body of the charger, making the low-profile device even easier to carry around, not needing any extra cables or cords. Nothing to forget, nothing to keep track of. Also, the price point for the device is very reasonable (it varies depending on how many you buy). It is very fast charging, both to charge up itself, and to use it to charge a phone. Plus, if you plug in the Megalo Mini to a power source, and then your phone into the Megalo Mini, they both charge at the same time, and the four charging lights on the device tell you how much power it is holding. I don’t tend to gawk at every new device out there, but this one really got my attention. It’s attractive, small, functional, and effective.

Packing a capacity of 1400 mAh, you can charge an Android phone up to 100%, and an iPhone up to 75%. Certainly enough to get you out of a jam, but also enough to get you through the day.

The geniuses behind the Megalo Mini have about a month and a half to go on their Kickstarter campaign, so you have plenty of time to check it out. Watch the video. Read the blurbs. Set Kickstarter to remind you if you’re not sure.

I can’t wait until this product is available on the market, but first it needs your support at Kickstarter. Head over there for more information, and to support the campaign!
