Or plug 2 or 3 thingCHARGERs together and charge all your things at once.
thingCHARGER is all about getting rid of USB wires everywhere, but we know there are times when you'll want to plug and play.
Wanna talk and charge? Plug right in underneath.
thingCHARGER's design is so simple, so essential, that although it is completely new, it feels utterly familiar — as though you've used and loved it all your life.
And when you plug it into the wall outlet thingCHARGER is essentially invisible when viewed from the front. Its slim profile means its visual impact is negligible from all other angles.
thingCHARGER's not the only charger you'll ever need. But it is hands-down the best-designed you'll ever own.
All chargers use power when they are not in use.
But thingCHARGER uses extraordinary new circuitry to all but eliminate this 'vampire' current.
Just plug thingCHARGER into any wall outlet. The regular outlets on the front are live whenever your wall outlet is.
The USB outlets (on the underside, so hidden when not in use) and the device-tip on the top are live whenever thingCHARGER is switched on.
thingCHARGER will be 'UL Certified' — the gold standard of electrical equipment safety, because nothing is more important than delivering a product that puts safety first.
Amy agreed: "Most of your ideas are pretty dumb" she said lovingly, "but this is great! Go to the basement and don't come out until you've built a prototype."
The vision was born!
thingCHARGER has gone on to be the most successful crowdfunded mobile accessory of all time.
We've partnered with P3, a Manhattan-based American manufacturer of really high quality products. For 25 years they've made niche, finely engineered devices – we're thrilled to have such a phenominal partner bringing thingCHARGER to market.
When Apple switched to the new Lightning connector they added in a special, very expensive, chip.
Some cheap connectors use counterfeit chips and quickly fail: Apple upgrades iOS software to stop them from working.
We're doing it right and using the Apple-authorized chips.
Right now we are tooling: making the molds that are used in manufacturing.
As soon as the tool is ready we'll be in for 'UL' certification (time for this varies from 8-12 weeks or so) and then production can start.
Thanks to our supporters' feedback, yes.
We've designed an adjustment system, so you can fine-tune the height to be just right for your situation, with or without a case.
You know your own house, your own devices and your own life. Just use thingCHARGERs where your things will be safe.
thingCHARGER makes only a small difference to the load on any outlet. (Maximum 1/2 amp on your 110v outlet).
thingCHARGER itself is very stable. By design you'll see it has two sets of prongs on the back. The second set isn't needed for electricity, it is there purely to make sure thingCHARGER sits really firmly in the outlet.
As we get closer to shipping we'll keep supporters updated; currently shipping is slated for end of Q2 2015. Because it may ship sooner (or take longer), we'll provide schedule updates as we have newer info.
Just make sure that if you stack several thingCHARGERs together you put your largest thing closest to the wall.
No more than feels stable and safe to you, and never more than 3 please. If you have a large item like a tablet, put it on the inside nearest the wall.
