Meet the world’s smallest iPhone charging cable.

The ChargeCard is an iPhone charging that’s designed to live in your wallet, purse, or pocket. Shaped like a credit card and measuring just 2.54mm thick, this is the thinnest iPhone charging cable you can buy, and you can pull it out whenever you find a free USB port to charge your device. What’s more, you can finally say goodbye to carrying messy cables.

If you’re a heavy iPhone user, it’s unlikely your battery will last a full day. It will with minimal use, but if you’re making lots of calls, watching lots of videos, or playing lots of games, you’ll be lucky if it lasts even half a day.

To combat this, you can either pick up a bulky charging case, which will often double the size of your iPhone. Or you can carry around a USB cable in your pocket or bag, then spend 5 minutes untangling it when you want to use it.

Or you can pickup a ChargeCard, slip it into your wallet, and pull it out wherever and whenever you need to charge your iPhone. Keep it in your pocket, your wallet, or your bag, knowing it won’t get damaged or tangled around everything else you’re carrying.

Our quest was simple: a charging cable for your iPhone portable enough for you to always have it on you. Being ultra-portable, however, wasn’t enough; it needed to fit into your life. So we designed ChargeCard in the shape of a business card, and at only three times the thickness of a credit card. With this form factor, the ChargeCard fits naturally into your wallet, purse or pocket. It’s there when you need it, and out of your way when you don’t.

ChargeCard can be plugged into TVs, game consoles, computers, car stereos, and even electric keyboard. It’s basically compatible with almost any USB port you can find, so you can charge your iPhone anywhere.

But like all Kickstarter projects, the ChargeCard needs your backing before it enters production. The company are looking for pledges of $5 or more, and those over $20 will guarantee you a ChargeCard as soon as they start shipping.

Check out the demonstration video below, then head on over to Kickstarter to make your pledge.

    Pretty cool idea. Hopefully it’s not exactly as “strong” or flexible as a business card. :)

    Absolutely.

    I like the concept buy I am definitely holding off on ‘cable’ purchases until the next iPhone is announced. Saving up in case I need to buy a lot of new cables for the rumored smaller dock connector.

    They got it right. We always carry around with us 3 things. Mobile, keys and wallet. What about developing a charger as key-ring? Will we see this idea as product on the market in 6 months?
