ChargeCard is a Compact Credit Card Sized USB Charger for iPhone

Apple ChargeCard is a Kickstarter project with a new creative idea that can solve our iPhone charging woes. When traveling, sometimes we forget to bring the charging cable when we really need it. The battery may be running out of juice and there’s no charging cable in sight. That’s where ChargeCard can help to charge your iPhone.

This Kickstarter project is created by Noah Dentzel and Adam Miller. The size of this USB card is what attracts the most, it’s just a credit card sized card that can be easily carried around in a wallet, pocket or a purse.

You just have to insert one end in your iPhone and the second end to any USB port, which are nowadays found in TVs, game consoles, cars, desktops, and laptops. That’s all you need to do to charge up your device.

It’s just 0.1″ thick (2.54mm), made with durable ABS plastic, and its foldout USB arm is made of a flexible thermoplastic elastomer.

This project has already met its $50,000 goal with 14 days to go. If you want to get this business card sized USB card, then you can make a pledge of $18, and get an option of three color choices to choose from. If you are based outside U.S., then add $5 for international shipping.

ChargeCard is going to retail at a price of $25, and the estimated date of shipping is September 2012.
