One of my favorite accessories brand, TYLT has launched a Kickstarter campaign for its upcoming product, the Energi 2K Travel Charger.
Utilizing TYLT’s patented technology, the brightly colored Energi 2K is an affordable 2-in-1 USB wall charger that doubles as a portable battery for on-the-go charging. The Energi 2K prototype was unveiled at CES 2014 earlier this year, and won a few awards as well.
The charger features foldable AC wall prongs to make it very portable. It packs in a rechargeable 2200 mAh battery with an LED battery status indicator. With a universal USB port, you can use the charger for any smartphone or similar device. The Energi 2K can handle input of 110-240 Volts, and therefore, it can be used across the world, although, you’d need an adapter.
The Energi 2K was designed to replace your standard wall charger. The Intelligent Charging Technology prioritizes the charge to your device until your device is fully charged. It then charges the 2200mAh battery onboard. It will take 3-4 hours to fully charge the 2K. If nothing is connected, the charger stays in Intelligent Standby Mode.
Last year, TYLT completed two successful Kickstarter campaigns for the Energi+ Backpack and VU Wireless Charger. Now, TYLT is seeking $50,000 for UL testing fees and an initial production run, with a plan to deliver product to backers in July this year. There are several reward plans starting from $20, although the retail price is expected to be $39.99.
