How often does it happen that you have your laptop handy, wish to charge the dying battery of your phone via USB (or the lightning cable), and there is no charging cable with you? If you work some place surrounded by several people on computers, it is likely that you would find one. If not, hard luck!

Why leave it on luck when you can always have charging adapter handy? One almost never leaves the house without a set of keys, be it of the car or the front door. With the ChargeKey, you are almost guaranteed to have a charging cable within reach, whenever you need.

A Few Days With ChargeKey

I put ChargeKey on my keychain immediately on unpacking it. I was at home a couple of days after that and didn’t have the need for it at all. A couple of days ago, after being out for several hours, as my phone battery started to die and while I looked in vain for the charger or the cable, I was reminded of ChargeKey.

I had considered the product as creative, but had sort of underestimated its utility. In times of dire need, you would be thankful that you have it with you. When I started to charge the phone with it, my colleagues were impressed by the products’ utility and plan to get it for themselves.
