Today’s Killer Startup: XPNDBLS
XPNDBLS is modular phone case and battery charger for multiple devices.
Why It’s A Killer Startup:
Today we’re going to talk about a very modern problem: running out of battery on your phone. It happens to everyone and it’s pretty universally annoying, right? You’re on Facetime with your mom or you’re watching a video on YouTube and your phone just dies right in the middle of everything. You’re forced to search for an outlet, dig your charging cable out of wherever you tucked it, and plug in for a couple minutes before you can get going again.
Lately the dead phone problem has become a dead device problem, as most of us have multiple objects that need charging on the regular. That ups the aggravation to multiple cables and multiple outlets, and who has time for that?
Luckily, there’s a new product currently Kickstarting that can help all of you electronics lovers last a little longer. It’s called XPNDBLS (pronounced “Expendables”), and it’s “a universal power solution that can power any USB-compliant device.”
The XPNDBLS portable phone charger takes the battery out of your phone and makes it accessible to use to charge other devices. It comes with a lightweight shell, a removable battery, a two piece outer shell to protect everything, a universal adaptor, and a power indicator to let you know how much charge you have left. It’s also the first power bank to offer a type C connection, which allows for faster charging.
The battery pack will also be available for purchase without the case, making it accessible to people who don’t have an iPhone 6 /6+ or Galaxy S6, the three phones that the case is designed to fit.
Because the battery is compatible with any device, you can easily take it out of its case and use it to charge your tablet, your secret phone, or your USB compatible accessories.
XPNDBLS is currently raising money to take their product to market. Their awards for donating include early bird specials on the product and price breaks for people who donate on the higher end of the spectrum.
So, if you’re sick and tired of always running out of power on your phone and other devices, and are ready for a portable, lightweight, attractive solution, head over to XPNDBLS Kickstarter and throw a few dollars their way.
